Will Triplett

When Will Triplett crossed the finish line of the Marine Corps Marathon, he felt a sense of unspoken pride and dedication.  Will faced many challenges in his 20 years as a Navy Chief but running saw him through it all. What started as a simple activity to stay in shape for physical readiness tests and blow off steam, turned into a great passion. Will fell in love with running at a very young age and has since successfully participated in numerous marathons and shorter distance races; more recently he picked up coaching and started Willpower Athletes.  He is very passionate about bringing a sense of fun to the game and has a special ability to connect with people of all ages and ability levels. While working as a business owner and a college professor, he believes in a slow progression and constant communication between coach and athlete.  Becoming fit is not just physical, it is mental. If you can condition your mind, you can condition your body. As a coach, I feel it is my job to help people break down physical and mental barriers so individuals can run the race of their lives.  My favorite thing about coaching is to unconditionally support runners and their journeys. To ultimately help athletes understand not only the physical training side of running but the mental approach to running and having a mindset to support the ups and downs of running.  Will loves working with athletes of all experiences no matter what they are training for.  He retains faculty appointments at the University Maryland Global Campus and the University of Arizona. In his free time, Will enjoys running, cycling, going to the beach, traveling, investing, and spending quality time with his wife.

Coaching Philosophy

My coaching philosophy is: I am a firm believer that if you have knowledge pass it on to those who do not have it. I also believe that playing sports as a child not only builds character and confidence but also gives a sense of accomplishment. It also prepares children for life, teaching them about working as a team or as a team player, not as an individual.
