IRONMAN Certified Coach
Master’s Degree in Psychology and specializing in Motivation.
Coaching Dynamic Preferences:
I work with athletes online and in person. Currently I have more online athletes, so it is my preferred dynamic.
I have been doing triathlons for the last 5 years and have tried every method from random training to signing with a coach. I have experienced the best and worst on this spectrum and use this experience with my athletes. I have completed four 70.3 distance events, one 140.6 event and three 5,150 distance events.
Triathlon is the essence of human spirit. It brings out the determination and strength in athletes. It has brought it out in me and changed me for the better.
I realized that triathlons should compliment your life and not complicate it. And with the proper program, I could complete a Full IRONMAN event while juggling 15 hour workdays and studies.
From the Coach:
Infinitude is a multisport coaching business aimed at empowering women athletes. Many women feel that endurance events like triathlons are too hard or will take too much time away from family and work responsibilities. Or they want to attempt one, but have no idea where to begin or they have a fear of open water swimming.
Infinitude wants to give beginner and recreational athletes the opportunity to reach that fitness goal they have always wanted. Our main aim is to grow a global community of women athletes that inspire and support each other, not only through their training and at events, but also through the hard and the happy times! So it does not matter where you are in the world, you can train with us!
Does this mean men are not welcome? Of course they are! Infinitude Coaching aimed at all beginner and recreational athletes where ever they are. Programs:
Athletes get individualized programs with their specific needs, goals and abilities in mind. Programs are data driven so that we can keep track of your fitness and performance, which works really well if you are on the other side of the globe! It is also a way for us to adjust your program so that you can peak at the right time and smash that race or personal best.
