Jon Fecik

Multisport Coach, Fecik Coaching

Jon has been a triathlete for over ten years, and he lives and breathes the sport. The sport changed his life because he has learned to live as an athlete. “Living as an athlete isn’t simply participating in a sport, training for 30 hours a week or competing at the Ironman World Championship–although I’ve done these things” states Jon, “rather, it’s a life approach. It requires a relentless awareness of the body, mind and environment and a willingness to live and adapt, rest and grow.”


Presently, Jon is racing as a professional triathlete. Jon also enjoys coaching age group triathletes. “There’s nothing quite like seeing the individuals I coach grow as athletes and human beings” says Jon. He is a USAT certified coach and received a Bachelor of Science in health science studies with a focus in exercise physiology and the aging process, a Bachelor of Arts in English from Quinnipiac University and a Master of Arts from Duquesne University. He strongly believes that his education sets him apart from many other coaches: “My foundation allows me to educate my athletes about themselves from an acute, biological point of view, helping to prevent sickness and injury.”


In his down time, Jon enjoys watching series on Netflix such as “Better Call Saul” and “That 70’s Show.” He currently lives in Connecticut with his wife Amber.

He is also Faculty Coordinator/Coach of the Marshall University Cycling Club to promote both recreational riding and collegiate racing.

Prior to his time at Marshall, Rob worked ten years at the University of Pittsburgh Diabetes Institute (UPDI) as a manager and researcher for community-based programs involving diabetes, obesity and physical activity. During the latter part of his time there, he worked as a diabetes educator in the primary care setting. Rob received both his Master of Science and PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Pittsburgh and holds the credentials of Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES), ACSM-Clinical Exercise Physiologist (ACSM-CEP) and NSCA-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and is a licensed USA cycling coach.

Rob’s professional ambition is to enhance the promotion of exercise as a therapeutic modality to the diabetes population and to educate both students and healthcare professionals on the role of exercise in diabetes management. Rob also provides coaching services for health/fitness and sports performance in those with and without diabetes.

Rob has a personal passion for exercise. In the warmer months, you can usually find him road cycling, mountain biking, running (mostly trail) or kayaking. When snow falls, he likes to strap on the skis and snowshoes. However, when he is not working or playing solo, he dedicates his time with his wonderful boys Preston and Evan.

Lyndsay Gregerson

Lyndsay Gregerson, RD, CDCES

Assistant Camp Director, Dietician

Lyndsay Gregerson’s passion to advocate wellness in those living with diabetes comes from her personal experience of having Type 1 diabetes diagnosed at the age of three. It’s this first-hand experience and awareness of the importance of diet and exercise on her own health that served as a catalyst for her career in dietetics while focusing on diabetes.

After earning a Bachelor of Science in dietetics from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Lyndsay completed her dietetic internship at Loyola University-Chicago and went on to become a registered and licensed dietitian. In 2008 she achieved certification as a certified diabetes educator (CDE).

Since 2011, she has worked as a diabetes clinical manager for Medtronic Diabetes in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Lyndsay’s drive for not letting T1D “get in the way” is evident with her participation in endurance sports. She has completed 2 Ironman Triathlons (a 140.6-mile race), 3 half-

Ironman distance triathlons, 3 marathons and several half-marathons and sprint/Olympic triathlons. Also known as ‘Lil Herc’, she was a skater with the Brewcity Bruisers (Milwaukee Roller Derby). When she is not training, she enjoys traveling, concerts, any outdoor activity and cooking.

About V Camp

In 2020, COVID forced us to pivot and find NEW ways to offer DTC camps, programs and services to our community. We had to cancel our in-person camps, but we couldn’t live with the idea of not learning, training and CONNECTING with the diabetes community. So, we created the V Camp programming. We know this experience is different from our in-person camps, but we learned that we can provide a unique and life-changing program dedicated to empowering the community of people with diabetes to thrive virtually. As a matter of fact, virtual programs were so popular that V CAMPS have been permanently added to our schedules.

The V Camps were created when we could not be together in person to continue to provide support and education for people living with diabetes. Virtually, we were able to learn, train and connect the DTC experts with new and alumni campers. We realized that virtual camps offer unique value and have added them permanently to our camp and program offerings.

The V Camp is founded in DTC’s core principles around diabetes management for exercise and sports and offers the same great information and community that our in-person camps offer. Camps range from one to three days.

Take a look at the schedule for this camp. The schedule is subject to change.
