About Janda

Triathlon Coach Janda Ricci-Munn

Janda Ricci-Munn is an elite level multisport coach who specializes in the training of endurance athletes. Over the course of his extensive coaching career, Janda has helped hundreds of individuals from a wide variety of sports to attain success at the local, regional, national and international levels. Janda possesses the unique combination of over 30 years of “in the trenches” experience as a highly competitive athlete, an in-depth understanding of sports science and 2 decades worth of work as a coach and classroom based health & wellness teacher.  His innovative use of scientific based testing and training techniques, coupled with his personalized approach to coaching has netted world-class results and notable headlines.


The cornerstone of Janda’s coaching operation is communication; he believes that in order for training to be successful, it must be individualized. Individualizing an athlete’s training entails much more than simply prescribing personalized training zones and reviewing workout data; it is the end product of a respectful, open and honest line of communication between athlete and coach.  By establishing a close working relationship with each and every athlete that Janda works with, he is able to attain and maintain a clear understanding of his athletes' unique needs, limitations and competitive objectives.


Born and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Janda resides in his hometown of Gloucester with his wife Michelle and their children Ryder and Vivien.
