Coach Helen Cain

USA Triathlon Level I Certified Coach, and a US Masters Level I & II Certified Coach

Coach Helen is a Pensacola native and has been an endurance athlete all her life -- because when your dad is a runner and your mom is a swimmer -- you do both! 

She grew up spending mornings at running club, evenings at swim practice, and weekends at swim meets and running races.  She started competing in AAU at the age of 5 and later US Swimming thru high school, reaching state all 4 years, then swam collegiately for 2 years at Florida Atlantic University.  She ran road races starting in elementary school and continues now - her favorite local race is the Fiesta 10K.  So when SRITRI started on Pensacola Beach, it only seemed natural for Helen to join the fun.  She either raced or worked swim support for numerous years. 

In 2012, Helen bit the bullet and finally decided to purchase a 'real' bike and actually ride it before racing at SRITRI that October, and officially fell in love with the sport of triathlon. Since then she has turned to triathlons as a way to remain competitive and healthy.  She has a very active preschooler plus two other boys, who are also swimmers, runners, and budding cyclists.  Family is immensely important to her along with maintaining a healthy balance of life and sport.  She trains and races when she can and has aspirations of doing an Ironman when the time is right and she can reasonably fit the training into her busy schedule.

Known to her friends and family as Mama Bear, she is a fierce competitor but always has a smile on her face.  Racing is her happy place.

As a USA Triathlon Level I Certified Coach and US Masters Level I & II Certified Coach, Helen aims to pass on her love of swimming and triathlons to her athletes.  She was a Red Cross lifeguard and swim coach/instructor for many years and has quickly revived her passion for swim instruction by incorporating it into her coaching. 

Helen's coaching repertoire is with running 5k's to marathon, open-water & pool swimming, nutritional programming, duathlons and short and long course triathlon coaching. Her expertise is in swimming - perfecting stroke techniques, creative workouts & easing athlete fears of open water.
