Liza Coaching enables clients to build the confidence and skills they need to compete in their first Ironman, or improvement of up to 2 1/2hrs off their first Ironman to finishing on the podium. I provide a solid foundation for an injured athlete to achieve 100% health to racing strong.




"My goal is to see athletes overcome obstacles to achieve their goals. The modern day athlete needs to balance many commitments from outside the athletic sphere, including work & family. In addition to this, the landscape for the training athlete is littered with a multitude of options & opinions. A good coach uses experience to navigate the best path to success" - Liza Rachetto


Liza Coaching incorporates a team of skilled professionals that I utilize for different services supporting their training, a PT, chiropractor, masseur, nutritionist and sports psychologist who help support the athletes specific needs
