About TMT Coaching
TMT Coaching was born from Coach Megan Tobin's Instagram handle, @trimegtri. But it very quickly became apparent that TMT was far less about just Coach Meg, and WAY more about an overall approach to coaching and community.
TMT stands for many things, but we believe it stands for the mindful triathlete - mindful of our dedication to the practice of endurance sports, mindful of each other, mindful of our environment, mindful of our own missions to be the best we can be. We start from where we are. We grow and learn.
We are mindful (tri)athletes. We are Team TMT.

The TMT Story
Megan Tobin is a coach, triathlete and open water swimmer living in Boulder, Colorado and the San Francisco Bay Area. Megan has always been an athlete; competing in various team sports, including swimming competitively and playing field hockey at a collegiate and national level. After devoting several years to building a career in technology marketing as well as a family, she discovered triathlon through her colleagues while going through a difficult divorce. What started as a way to get back in shape over 15 years ago became a passion for multisport, self-care and, perhaps surprisingly, bringing balance back into her life.
Having begun her triathlon journey as a mom of 3, full time corporate marketer and single mom, Megan both understands the demands of a busy life, but also knows that finding time for training and racing can bring so much to both you the athlete, but also help you be a better person, parent, and professional. (Yes, really.) She’ll help you prioritize your training and your life and break through mental barriers that inhibit your performance. Megan's mission is to lead by example and drive for diversity and inclusion in sport.
A multiple Ironman 140.6 and 70.3 World Championship qualifier and finisher, Megan coaches for TMT Coaching, both the beginner and advanced programs for SF Triathlon Club and non-profit One with the Ocean. She is a certified short course and long course triathlon specialist.
