Jason Jablonski, Coach

A nationally and regionally recognized professional mountain biker with a host of state, regional and national titles to his name, Jablonski set his sights on the sport of triathlon in 2005. In April of that year, Jablonski threw his hat in the ring at the XTERRA West off-road triathlon championship in Temecula, California and crossed the finish line second amateur and 14th overall. After such an impressive showing in his debut performance, Jablonski joined the regional XTERRA circuit collecting points that eventually led him to the top in his age group both regionally and nationally.

After logging four first-place overall finishes in his first season in the sport, Jablonski was off to compete at XTERRA nationals in Tahoe, California in late September. He crossed the finish line 22nd overall and was the third amateur finisher. From Tahoe, Jablonski headed to Maui to compete in the XTERRA World Championship where he boasted a first-place overall finish as an impressive culmination to his first-year efforts. Jablonski became the reigning 2005 XTERRA Amateur World Champion.

Jablonski competed as a professional off-road triathlete with a goal of finishing strongly in the top 10 athletes at some of the World’s largest off-road triathlons and multisport events during the 2006 and 2007 season.

In 2007 Jablonski took his talents to the ski trails as the head coach of the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club. This proved to be another opportunity to apply his technical expertise and coaching background to a club with a history of producing world-class athletes, including former Olympians.

Jablonski retired from racing in the pro ranks at the end of 2007 to focus more attention on his growing coaching business as well as forging a partnership with Black Diamond Sports Therapy.  This partnership is providing North Central Washington with a tremendous resource to help athletes improve their athletic performance.  Jablonski still enjoys competing at the age group level and looks to accomplish some lofty goals as a Masters athlete.

Aside from racing, Jablonski is the owner of SET Coaching where he works with athletes to provide sport-specific coaching and biomechanical expertise. Through this, he is able to match his experience, knowledge and talent with the goals of each unique client to create an environment where his clients have been able to achieve results beyond their expectations. He is a certified USA Level II Cycling Coach and maintains a strong commitment to remaining on the cutting-edge of his field. He is a Retul, FIST,  and Bike Fit Certified Fitter, and because of this commitment, he works with the Retul, Dartfish, and other sport-specific fitting and analysis systems to ensure athletes are training and competing at optimum levels. SET Coaching’s partnership with Black Diamond Sports Therapy brings a background of knowledge to the table that is second-to-none. The partnership between SET Coaching and Black Diamond Sports Therapy means athletes have a tremendous resource to help them achieve their personal best.

Jablonski was selected to serve on the prestigious Gold’s Gym Fitness Institute in 2004 and 2005. Gold’s Gym holds a commitment to offering the best knowledge and expertise from across its global network of 600 gyms in 43 states and 26 countries to create the world’s leading think tank on health and fitness issues. Jablonski was selected from a pool of fitness experts to serve as the Youth Fitness authority where he joined a team of nine other panelists to represent the Fitness Institute on a national and international level.

Jablonski has been featured in a number of local, regional and national publications. He also offers a variety of cycling clinics, is an indoor cycling instructor, and speaks regularly to local and regional schools and community groups. As an advocate for cycling, running and swimming, he founded and championed the Gold’s Gym/Wenatchee Valley Junior Velo cycling program. Jablonski holds a degree in elementary education with minors in biology and teaching English as a second language.
