Tony has been racing triathlons for almost 19 years, most of those have been off road with XTERRA triathlons, mountain bike races and trial running. There's no doubt, Tony loves and lives the endurance lifestyle. Always one to be late to family gatherings because of his training schedule, Tony knows what it takes to be an endurance athlete, to push the limits, to find those extra gains, and to have fun while doing it.
While serving in the U.S. Navy, Tony hurt his back and had to take a break (no pun intended) away from Triathlons. For over a year, Tony had a hard time walking, and couldn't do any exercise which for an endurance athlete is tough. After Doctors telling him he couldn't run or bike again, and could slowly start to swim, he couldn't take that as an answer.
This is where Tony learned the value of having a strong endurance coach in your corner. He found the assistance of a good coach, who not only taught him to become an athlete again, but he also learned how to become a coach.
Endurance sports is inspiring. It motivates you. It makes you stronger, physically and mentally. It drives you. It pushes you, to limits you didn't know you have.
Having a good coach in your corner only helps this. It takes the thinking out of training, and lets you do what you do best. WIN!
