Karen Parnell


My passion is to motivate, guide and coach people to achieve their own health, fitness and race goals. I will help you meet these via very personalised training program, coaching, nutritional advice, S&C plan, stress management and motivation – a truly holistic approach. As the owner and Head Coach of Chili Tri in Andalusia, Spain I can coach you face to face at our facility in Spain or online and via weekly calls. I also run small group warm weather training camps to help you optimise your performance all year round. I am a keen triathlete and competed in events in the US, Taiwan, HK, Spain and the UK. I am a Level 3 HPCP BTF Coach and Tutor, ASA Open Water & IRONMAN Certified Coach and AIQ Level 3 Personal Trainer. I specialise in Bike FTP testing, Stryd running power & gait analysis and Swim video analysis. As an engineer I love technology and applying it to training but if that's not your thing then don't worry your individual training plan will meet your personal preferences.
