Rockstar Triathlete: Priscilla Westfield
I feel honored to be working with Priscilla on her quest to become the first African American professional triathlete.
Her love of going as hard as you can at every training session and race is awesome, but can get you into trouble. This is actually where we are working. To have a build, peak and recovery for her races and choose races to help her accomplish her goals and set new personal records will be what it takes for her success.
Her work ethic to get in the hard training and recovery necessary are what impresses me most. She is always up for the challenge of the training even when she questions it at first. It’s not just about the training but the logistics of having a periodized training plan that has a purpose are going to make the difference in her success.

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
I chose FCC to assist me on my triathlon/health and wellness journey because I was AMAZED at the wealth of knowledge, motivation, and accountability demonstrated at one of the workshops I attended. Triathlon isn’t just a sport, but a venue to associate the lessons learned to life. FCC helps me stay disciplined, which inevitable spills over into my day-to-day life choices.

The biggest improvements for me (HANDS DOWN) would be nutrition/health. Prior to training with Full Circle, I ate whatever I wanted. Now, instead of living to eat, I eat to live. I’m am more cautious about what I eat. I ask myself, “Is this going to benefit my body in some way?” If the answer is no, I save it for my treat days.
Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
3. Surrounding myself with encouraging and supportive people
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
The adrenaline of the race! Fighting through the water, flying at high rates of speed down a hill, and digging deep at the end for sure!
