Meet Coach Jamii North

Jamii North’s journey into multi-sport began with a bang—her first triathlon was the Iron-distance Vineman. This monumental feat marked the beginning of her journey to push beyond limits.

Her transition from athlete to coach shows her passion for the sport and her desire to help others achieve their dreams.

These practical insights can make a significant difference, turning good performances into great ones.


Community and Support: Feisty Menopause

Finding a supportive community is vital for any athlete, and this is especially true for women navigating the challenges of menopause. Jamii highlights the incredible work of Feisty Media and their Feisty Menopause platform. This community provides resources, support, and a sense of belonging, helping female athletes continue to thrive. The importance of a supportive network cannot be overstated, and platforms like Feisty Menopause play a crucial role in the well-being and success of their members.
