Coach Johnny Z. on His Philosophy & Focus
I am a student of the sport and a retired military veteran of 22 years. I bring a strong but compassionate attitude to my coaching philosophy. “Do not dwell in the past. Learn from it and move on!” Your goal is my goal. We will learn together and we will find the best path to take. We will let TriDot show us the way.
Johnny Zepeda has been a triathlete for 10 years. He began his career as a participant at his local YMCA. After completing several sprint distances Johnny knew he wanted to help others as well as his community. He was instrumental in growing the triathlon training program at the local YMCA in Pearland, TX. The program is still strong today. Johnny was a part owner and lead long course coach from 2007-2012 at the USAT performance center in Houston TX where he designed and implemented successful training plans with his hands on experience. He managed a 94 to 98 percent completion rate for his attending Ironman athletes 2010 thru 2012 to include an overall female win at the Redman 140.6.
