Owner - Brooke Schohl, MS, RD is one of the few true Arizona natives! She obtained a Master’s Degree in Nutrition from Arizona State University and holds two Bachelor’s Degrees in Communication & Nutrition. Brooke worked in pharmaceuticals for several years after finishing her first degree, but left in 2007 to pursue her dream of becoming a sports nutritionist.
In fall 2007, a friend proposed the idea of training for and completing the Olympic-distance Soma Triathlon in Tempe, Arizona. Brooke agreed – though she was not a swimmer, a cyclist, or a runner, to say the least! This first race began her love affair with triathlon. She has completed more than 40 races of varying distances including several 70.3 races, Ironman Arizona, Ironman Florida and Ironman Cabo.
Destination Kona/Fuel to the Finish is the brainchild of Brooke’s two passions…. endurance nutrition and triathlon. She incorporates her expansive nutrition knowledge, excellent writing and interpersonal skills, and significant triathlon experience into an unforgettable retail and nutrition coaching experience for her triathletes.
