Description of Maria Fe Flores
I started coaching at 32 years old. As a triathlete myself, I am always hungry for learning more about triathlon and getting better each year. I have done many things from running half marathons, open water events and up to triathlon at all distances. I truly believe that if you want to see results you have to be consistent and work very hard. I commit 100% with every athlete and their personal goals, and really understand all their questions and fears as Age Groupers. Since I also had a full time job, I also understand the importance of having a very well structured and balanced training plan. Since 2015, I have been coaching several athletes helping them to accomplish their triathlon goals, such as PRs and getting to the finish line . From this experience, I am able to design the perfect training plan for you. Every athlete has his or her own goals and I will be very happy to help you achieve it.
What have you achieved in your coaching career?
We are the best Peruvian triathlon team. We won "La Copa Interclubes 2018" (we were the Team with more gold medals at the event). I train an athlete that got 4th place at Ironman 70.3 Cozumel in her age group and also have 30 podiums in different races. I am coaching an athlete that came to the Team without knowing how to ride a bike and 6 months later, he did his first Ironman 70.3, and 5 months later he won his age group at a Sprint distance triathlon in Lima. I am coaching several athletes that didn´t know how to swim and several months later they finished their first Ironman 70.3 and now are training for their Ironman 140.6. I am very proud to say that all of my athletes are getting PRs on every competition.
Why do you work with Trisutto?
I´ve been following the Trisutto blog since I started as a triathlete. I started the online coach certification course this year and on June 2018, I attended my first training camp with Brett at St. Moritz, as a coach. I learnt a lot from this experience. I was on deck with him and this really got me to the next level as a coach. The Trisutto.com methods of coaching lead to success. It´s an honor to represent this coaching philosophy in Peru and I am very proud to be part of the Trisutto family.
