It all started when...

I began to get involved with sports as a young girl. I was part of a swimming team for eight years, played tennis for seven years and practiced speed skating for another three. I always competed and loved being on the podium, but as a kid, I never took it seriously. As I got older and more competitive, college introduced me to team Sports as I joined the Soccer team. After six years in the sport, I was invited to play with the national team. I also started running 10 k's and marathons, but I was never really passionate about it. One day, a friend introduced me to triathlons. This is when my life changed; I had finally found my real passion. Since then, Triathlon has been my life! It’s not only part of my lifestyle, but also a big part of who I am.

After 10 years competing nationally and internationally, I moved to the US and started coaching a few friends. I immediately realized how rewarding it was to help people achieve their goals. As the team began to grow, I started my IRONMAN University Coaching certification and officially founded 101 Training Team.

Participating in IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship three times has served not only as a motivation for myself, but also as a learning experience that I can share with my athletes. 

Today I can say creating 101Training has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I hope to keep helping athletes, motivating newbies to the sport, or just helping others build a healthier lifestyle, while keeping myself active as a competitor and as a proud ambassador for all my current sponsors: HOKA one one, Powerful Yogurt, Easton Cycling, Lululemon, Compressport, Alé Bikewear, SRAM, Scicon Bike bags, Stages Powermeters, Blueseventy Wetsuits, Cervelo...among others.
