Leiria/Lisboa , Portugal
I am an ITU level 3 Certified Coach.
My only goal is to help you achieve and surpass your goals.
I've coached athletes of all ability levels, experience levels, ages and genders to levels they didn't believe possible.
It doesn't matter to me if you're fast or slow, new to the sport or have been at it your whole life. The trait I look for in the athletes I work with is a high level of internal motivation. If you're motivated to train, we'll get along just fine.
I know the most important thing to you is working with a coach that can help YOU achieve YOUR goals. This partnership between coach and athlete is just that, a partnership. So if we lay out a great program, if we communicate often and are flexible we'll have a great partnership.
So the focus is on YOU, and not me. You don't care what I've done, only that I can help you achieve what YOU want.
At the same time, you need to know that your coach is qualified, understands what you're going through and is able to help you fit quality training into your busy life.
I have participated many ITU events and WOrld cup´s as a triathlete. I won an Ironman and 70.3 in my age group and qualified to the world championships.
As a coach i have a lot of experience and some great results. In 2019 Ricardo Batista won the World Junior Title and in 2021 won the European U23 Championship. I daily coach a group of elite triathletes in Portugal some of them are aiming for the 2024 Olimpic Games. In Long distance i have some great athletes that are now aiming to qualify for Hawai Kona.
