Meet the Dynamo Multisport team from Atlanta, Georgia. With 11 years, 150 members and 5 coaches the team is going strong and has us seeing green! #GoGreen
Number of people on the team:
When & how did the team form?
The team started in 2008 by Matthew Rose. We saw an opportunity to leverage the fantastic Masters Swimming program Coach Maria Thrash had built at Dynamo. Using the extra facility space that was available, Maria and I introduced indoor cycling classes at the Chamblee location in 2009. In addition to the Masters Swimming and indoor cycling sessions, we began coaching triathletes with individual programs. Six athletes grew into 20 by the end of the 2009 season, including two Ironman Hawaii qualifiers, one of whom stood on the podium at the greatest stage of the triathlon world that year.
What makes your team successful?
The core culture characteristics of our group – caring, empathetic, diverse, fun-loving, loyal, proud and driven – are fiercely in tact. We purposely lead the group as a family. As such we are incredibly close. And we have 5 coaches on our staff to support the team.
