Coach Maurice (Mo) Wills is the man who is responsible for getting to the start and finish line of all my major races minus my one DNF ( did not finish). Mo, taught me to swim and believed I could do more than I ever thought possible. I also told him he was the first coach that didn’t fire me- long story.
Mo is a USA Triathlon, a level two coach, certified total immersion swim instructor, certified Chi running instructor, and master trainer for heart zones. He is a two-time Boston Marathon finisher, ultra-marathoner and 11-time full-distance Ironman finisher. He had more than 25 years of race experience and over 20 years of coaching experience at all levels and distances. He has coached hundreds of athletes in person and remotely to their finish lines.He always says “hate me now, love me race day”.
He ran competitively in high school and college. He burned out and took a hiatus after college until his mother told him he was fat. He then started running again. It was from there his passion grew and grew. He went from running, cycling, to triathlon racing and coaching.
When winter comes, Coach Mo likes to play in the snow being an accomplished snowboarder and skier. He is a certified Tier 1 snowboard instructor. Besides being a coach, Maurice Wills is also an active CPA and holds a BS in accounting from North Carolina A&T State University.
