Coach's Corner

Have You Considered a Coach?

Want to do a triathlon?  Go faster?  Be more efficient?

Need someone to hold you accountable and lead you to to the podium?

When picking a Coach, one size doesn't fit all.  Your schedule, experience, need for personal contact and more all play a part.  As a Club we do not expressly endorse nor recieve any compensation from the Coaches we list here.  Each have expressed interest in working with HRTC members. Their qualifications, fees and requirements of athletes should be discussed and evaluated by you to find the right fit.

Powerhouse Racing


John "Johnny Z" Zepeda started Powerhouse Racing with a simple vision: Help endurance athletes reach their fullest potential, while remaining injury free. 

Johnny has assembled an experienced team of sport-specific coaches and trained wellness professionals, all under one roof. Partnerships with top-notch service providers like Airrosti Rehab Center (Dr. Natalie Bodziony), Vibrant Pilates (Nicole McBride), and InTouch Massage and Bodywork (Lisa Yarzy) make it possible to fulfill the vision of helping athletes reach their goals in a safe and healthy way. 

Powerhouse Racing is much more than a gym or a shop filled with shiny gear. Powerhouse is family - some call it their 'tribe'. Powerhouse is a place where you step out of your comfort zone and achieve things that once seemed impossible. For many, that entails finishing an Ironman® race. For others, it's overcoming the fear of open-water swimming. While some just have the simple desire to pursue a healthier lifestyle. Whether your goal is at the top of a podium or just across the finish line, our dedicated team of coaches, instructors, and athletes are here to help you see it through.


Our goal is to maintain a complete "one-stop shop" that caters to dedicated endurance athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Powerhouse Racing offers gear, clothing and nutrition from the best brands in the industry like Quintana Roo, Orbea, Garmin, Garneau, Coeur, On Running, Generation UCAN, and more.
In addition to our ever-expanding product offerings, you can also get a great massage, a killer Pilates workout, and expert injury treatment all under one roof.  Oh, and did we mention beer? Yep. We've got that, too.
