Joan Scrivanich draws on her knowledge and experience as an Exercise Physiologist and Coach to write about triathlon and running. As an avid traveller, she also enjoys writing about the active things you can do to keep fit and healthy while traveling. Read some of what she’s written here.

Joan earned her Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology from Columbia University in New York City and holds coaching certifications from USA Triathlon, USA Track & Field, IRONMAN, and National Strength & Conditioning Association. But before becoming a coach, she worked in the healthcare field at the nation’s top ranked hospitals in New York City. Her experiences in healthcare and coaching have combined to enrich her knowledge and adds an extra dimension to her writing.

As an athlete, Joan has been an endurance athlete for close to 30 years which has included competing in high school cross country and track, running for a competitive division I college in both cross country and track, and competing in countless triathlon and running races. Her favorite race was the Goofy Challenge in Walt Disney World.
