Rockstar Triathlete Claudia Abreu

Coach’s Notes:
Claudia is extremely dedicated to everything she does. We started with working on lifestyle to get sleep and nutrition dialed in so she had the energy for the training and racing.

Being a great mom is her number 1 priority and I created a program that fit around her schedule with her son. Having to train alone sometimes can be a little more difficult to hit the intervals and be consistent, but this was not the case for Claudia. Every lap was hit based on the testing we did, and the zones we created and she really knows how to deliver on race day- She is hyper focus and gets the job done! Having a Personal Record at both 70.3 and Ironman in the same season is amazing – SO proud of you girl- Let’s get to World’s even stronger!!!!!

Age: 40

Profession: Fitness model and mom

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?

This past year and half has been a very tough time for me.  I battled depression and anxiety that came from my divorce.  Finding a healthy healing place to build a stronger me was crucial and necessary.  I found that in Full Circle.  Erinne guided me to find healing through nutrition, exercise and meditative exercises.  

What is your “A” race for this season?  I think I had 2 “A” races.  The first one was the Augusta 70.3 and Ironman Florida.

Please share your BIG goals:  

My big goal was to qualify for the 70.3 World Championship in New Zealand in 2020.

Tell me about your successes so far:  

My successes so far have been qualifying for the 70.3 World Championship in New Zealand and achieving a PR of 40 minutes in IM Florida.

What were some of your biggest Improvements in performance for the each of the following? 

Swim: Being able to control my fear while swimming in a race and not to panic when getting smacked around by other swimmers.  

Bike: Being able to consistently hold higher wattage for longer. 

Run: The track workouts have significantly increased my speed. 

Nutrition/Health: I finally learned what foods work for me.  I cleaned up my act and let go of my favorite “toxic” drink, my beloved Red Bull.  

Please include any Personal Records and Goals achieved:  My personal record was completing Ironman Florida in 11 hours and 22 minutes. 

Name 2 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:

1. Training with an amazing group of people that I’ve met through Full Circle. They’ve been so welcoming, supportive, kind and so much fun to be around. 

2. The nutritional advice from Coach Erinne has been instrumental to my success. 

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?  

I love the excitement of racing and the endorphins.  However, my absolute favorite is that I can eat whatever I want that is gluten free, sugar free and dairy free…haha

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?  I would say “Do it!”  Seriously, it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made.  Grateful to have had Erinne’s guidance.  She’s truly someone that genuinely cares about her athletes and is incredibly knowledgeable about nutrition, wellness and training.
