Background: Reem first entered the world of triathlon in 2000 as a way to escape the daily pressures of her career as an attorney. Triathlon, and later cycling and running, became her savior. For the next 10 years, Reem continued in the corporate world, but always found the time to train and race. In 2010, Reem retired from 'Corporate America' opening Gazella Training, a fitness studio and coaching business in upstate New York. In that position, she worked with dozens of triathletes, cyclists, and runners of all levels. During this time, Reem continued to advance her knowledge of the sport, receiving her RRCA Run Coach Certification in 2016, and Level 2 Triathlon Certification in early-2018. Reem joined OutRival Racing, The Run Formula, and The Cycling Formula in 2018. In 2019, Reem took on an additional role as the Run Training Specialist for QT2 Systems support of Team In Training. Over the years, Reem has coached runners, cyclists, and triathletes of all levels, from first events to World Championship qualifiers. Each athlete has a different story and reason for entering the world of competitive racing. But, to succeed, each athlete must have a goal to strive towards and commit to. Reem will help to make your goal a reality. Reem's training philosophy is that if you commit to yourself, then she will commit to you. Your goals become her goals. Dream big and achieve more.
