Rockstar Triathlete: Enrique Raphael

Coach’s Notes: I was so excited when Enrique reached out to me and committed 100% to the Triathlon Transformation program just 4 months ago.

His results speak for themselves.

A long time triathlete but not really doing the things necessary to reach the big goals. We got right to work with all of his evaluations, testing and nutrition protocol and you can read from his results it’s working.

The fittest, healthiest he has ever been and then getting on the podium as a sweet side note made all the effort worth it!.

So proud of all your successes thus far Enrique and the journey has just begun! Congratulations on being an example that anything is possible- Let’s do this!!!

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? Despite having practiced sports most of my life, I felt I had been in a plateau for a long time training by myself and I wanted to take my training to a higher level.  Since I met Erinne in the past and I knew what her athletes were accomplishing by following FCC I called her and I committed to work on her transformational program.

What is your “A” race for this season? The reason I started this process was because I registered to the the lottery of the NYC Triathlon, so it was my “A” race at that point, nevertheless after three and a half months now my next big challenge is 70.3 Gulf Coast May 2022!

Please share your BIG goals: Besides Gulf Coast, I am planning to do other races, including the Miami Half Marathon in February.  The other one is to do again a race I did 8 years ago for my 50 running in Patagonia 100km in three days in December 2022. 

Tell me about your successes so far: If you measure success in terms of races results, I have been improving my PR through the year in the three sprints I already did and I completed the Olympic distance in NY; I you measure it in the way I feel the success is bigger, I feel much more confident to practice the three disciplines, to race and to take challenges in my preparation; In summary I am really enjoying the process!

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: I do not remember the exact numbers, but I have been dropping my time in all the disciplines through the different tests we have done. In the races I went from 1:24 in May to 1:13 last weekend.

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
1. Swimming technique and weekly open water practice
2. Bike adjustments and different drills (the bridges with coach Domingos helped a lot)!!!
3.Running technique and track workout

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon? 1-The fact that there are three disciplines; it makes it more challenging but it is more fun too.

2- Team training – it makes all the difference having a group with same objectives working with you every day.

3- Coaches. Having the guidance and the support is a game changer.

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program? I would recommend it 200% – It is a lot of fun, it is something that will help people in any activity because it creates a lot of good habits: Discipline, commitment, self-motivation, healthier life, teamwork and perseverance among others. It makes you feel proud of yourself.
