April 20, 2010 (San Juan, PR) – MarkAllenOnline has just been announced as the official coach for the new Ironman 70.3 San Juan in beautiful Puerto Rico. Six- time Ironman World Champion and head coach Mark Allen states, “Our Train Smart, Get Results philosophy has proven extremely successful for guiding athletes of all levels to achieve their goals in racing.

Of special interest to this race is that our coaching services are offered in Spanish, which will enable a wide spectrum of athletes to be able to utilize our programs.
