Rockstar Triathlete Paul Bedi says “Full Circle is a Tribe.”

Coach’s Notes: 
Paul has accomplished more in the last 6 months than many aim for in a year.  His dedication to learn the skills needed to swim, bike, run and eat better and balance it all with his family and work life is to be admired.  A personal record at every single triathlon to date is awesome, but the smile and laughter he brings to the group is an added bonus.  So happy you joined the Full Circle Tribe, can’t wait to see what amazing things you accomplish next! – Coach Erinne

Founder & CEO of IDMWORKS, a Miami-based cyber security consulting firm.

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
For the last 20 years, I have been participating in various distance races including marathons, the craziest challenge being Disney’s Dopey Challenge which I completed twice! I needed a new challenge so I started biking which I enjoyed and a friend convinced me to sign up for the South Beach Tri — I knew I needed help because I couldn’t swim so I found Erinne / Full Circle at the Riviera Master’s swim class and the Erinne said “Hey, why don’t you come run & bike with us this week” and the rest is history. By the end of the year I will have completed 7 triathlons and hopefully many more in the years to come.

What is your “A” race for this season?
I’m excited about the Miami Man Tri coming up in November, the weather will be perfect and I really want to end the year with a fantastic result.

Please share your BIG goals:
I really enjoy the challenge of the shorter triathlon, however, my goal is to complete a 70.3 in 2019 and a 140.6 in 2020.

Tell me about your successes so far:
My biggest success is that I can actually swim freestyle. It doesn’t seem like a big deal to most, however, from not swimming to completing and competing in triathlons is a huge achievement for me. My swim time for a sprint distance has improved 3.5 minutes since I started with FC. In addition to the improvements in the water, my overall finishing time has improved by more than 6 minutes in a relatively short race. There’s always an opportunity to be better and that’s what I get when training with FC.

What were some of your biggest Improvements in performance for the each of the following? Swim: Bike: Run: Nutrition/Health: Please include any Personal Records and Goals achieved:
The whole program has been a success for me; my swim time has improved every time. My running has changed dramatically and with some fantastic coaching, I have worked on cadence, form and the results are that I can run faster. On the bike, Coach Dennis is relentless in his pursuit of making each one of his cyclists stronger, my bike times & speeds are through the roof. I’m most proud my gains in the water; 6 minutes in a short distance race is amazing.

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
1. FC is not just swim, bike and run coaching, it is a tribe of passionate people who strive to be better than the day before. The entire tribe helps and coaches together making it a really fun experience while working really hard.
2. Erinne’s holistic approach when working with athletes is unique and has really helped me; Erinne includes Nutrition, Lifestyle, Rehabilitation, Physio and Stretching techniques throughout the training which keeps me injury free and always finding ways to improve my race times.
3. The group chat is a forum in which Erinne’s athletes can ask questions and get advise around the clock. Even for people with a busy travel profession (like me), you can ask questions about the workout and you will get answers instantly. This forum helps motivate me to do better and pushes to me to train even when I’m not in Miami.

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
Triathlons are the ultimate endurance challenge working every part of your body. Bringing together my 3 favorite sports into a single race event is perfect for me and makes me wake up every morning ready to train hard.

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
You have to Tri it! The training is never boring and even if you don’t commit for the long term, you can’t get a better group of coaches that personalize a training program for you. They are truly experts in their respective domains and practice what they preach.
