About IronWorks MultiSport

Land Heintzberger TraithleteMy name is Land Heintzberger, I’m a former professional triathlete and I founded Ironworks Multisport in 2010 as a way to share my passion for triathlon with other athletes interested in pursuing their dreams and goals in the world of endurance sports. Ever since I was young, sports have been a major part of my life: running, swimming, horseback riding… some sort of training was always a part of my everyday routine. I began competing internationally in tetrathlon at the age of 16, then ran NCAA Division 1 track and cross country in college. After graduation I competed internationally in modern pentathlon, but I ultimately found my home in the world of triathlon. Swimming, spending days on the bike riding through the mountains, and running through the forests was the best feeling I had ever found, and still is to this day. I raced professionally for several years, but then was forced to take time off from the sport due to a major shoulder surgery. Going through the experience of not being able to train simply confirmed to me how important triathlon has been in my life, and I began coaching to stay involved with the sport. Through coaching I’ve discovered a new passion for helping others make triathlon a part of a happy and healthy lifestyle. I’m now recovered from surgery and training to begin racing again in 2011, and I hope to continue training, racing, coaching, and living the endurance life for the rest of my days!

I’m based in Upstate South Carolina near Greenville, in the small town of Campobello.  I’m a USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach, and an American Swim Coaches Association Level 2 Coach.  Through Ironworks Multisport, I offer complete coaching for triathlon, duathlon, running, and swimming.
