Mark Saroni   Paragon Training

Assisting athletes on the road to excellence.


Mark grew up in Dallas, Tx and was homeschooled his entire life. He played soccer for 11 years before finally succumbing to the wooing of triathlon in 2004. Mark attended the University of Texas at Tyler where he was a member of the 3-time American Southwest Conference Champion cross country team. He graduated in 2011 with a Masters in Kinesiology and a desire to learn more about performance in sport and work with athletes. As a teenager he recorded top 10 finishes at both the USAT Junior ITU National Championships and the ITU Age Group Championships 16-19 age group while also winning the SouthMidwest regional junior series title. A 3-time USAT All American and top 10 finisher in the 20-24 age group at Age Group Nationals, Mark was the #1 ranked triathlete in the SouthMidwest Region in 2011 and began competing as a professional triathlete in 2012. He has worked with everyone from two year old children to nationally ranked junior triathletes to adults in their 50’s and 60’s learning how to swim freestyle and side breathe for the first time. He loves working with athletes of any level and helping them achieve their goals.
