Rockstar Triathlete Veronica Chevresst
Coach’s Notes: Veronica joined my Online Beginner Triathlon Finish line Program to get ready for the December 2021, Mighty Mujer Triathlon. She was a total newbie. She did most of her training on her own, but was able to join our weekly zoom calls and an occasional brick on Saturday. I helped her get a road bike that fit her properly and learn the basics of the sport. Her dedication to learning how to perform the swim, bike and run BETTER, helped her succeed with flying colors across the finish line. I actually had to hold her back from over training because she began to feel pain and I did not want her to get injured. She quickly learned that her that form and frequency is more important as a beginner, than speed and volume.
Congratulations Veronica you are a true Rockstar Triathlete! Can’t wait to see what’s next for you!

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? I chose FCC, as they were (and still are) a positive, supportive, and very knowledgeable team.
What is your “A” race for this season? Mighty Mujer Sprint Triathlon.
Please share your BIG goals: My BIG goal is to complete the NYC Triathlon by next year:)
Tell me about your successes so far:
I had been wanting to do a Triathlon for the past ten years but was intimidated by the swim portion of a race, since I really didn’t know how to swim. So, with a super push from a friend, and during the pandemic in 2020, I had decided to take a basic swimming class at a local YMCA. I enjoyed swimming so much that it was then that I thought completing a TRI could be a real thing for me.
Then I joined the beginner triathlon program in the Fall os 2021. In a matter of weeks, I went from being unable to swim one full lap without stopping to TRI training six days a week, to confidently completing all three legs of the Mighty Mujer Sprint Triathlon race in December 2021. I did it! I became a TRIATHLETE:-)
What were some of your biggest Improvements in performance for the each of the following? Swim, Bike, Run, and Nutrition/Health. Please include any Personal Records and Goals achieved:
Swim: Being able to comfortably swim 1700 yards or more.
Bike: Increasing my cycling mileage from five to twelve miles easily.
Run: Transitioning off of the bike to run a mile comfortably.
Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
- Training with a positive group of athletes that encouraged and shared helpful information with me.
- Having a training plan.
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
What excites me most is that I get to experience a transformation of my mind, body and spirit with every stroke, pedal, and stride. I feel like a stronger person overall when I am TRI-ing.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program? You CAN do it-ya just have to follow a plan and do the work.
