Rockstar Triathlete Jesse Jimenez
Jesse’s story is truly amazing. You will read below how he is extremely modest about his successes, but I am here to shout to the world.
He is a massive inspiration to all of us at Full Circle Coaching, and he doesn’t even know it.
Jesse did his first International distance triathlon the day after we met at a race clinic. He was the very last person on the course and he finished.
When we started training together, Jesse had already lost 300 lbs, and with my program, he lost an additional 40 lbs.
He trusts every step of my process and keeps getting faster and stronger with every race.
Since training with Full Circle Coaching, he has been on the podium in every single race except for 2.
Last year at Ironman Florida he finished in 17:01 according to the Ironman Time clock- so that means a DNF- DO NOT FINISH. He completed the full distance but missed the cut-off time and rules are rules!
So what did Jesse do? He signed up again for Ironman Florida 2022.
He went back this year and blew last year’s away with a 16:25. Freakin’ Amazing Jesse. And he only ran 13 miles as his long run because he sprained his ankle. You see it’s not the big giant workouts that allow you to PR in this way, it’s about consistency and Jesse is consistent year-round with of course regular rest and recovery!
I could not be more proud of you, Jesse; a total Rockstar Triathlete and Inspiration to all. Guess what the next goal is? Sub 15 hours, baby! Let’s do it! Love you, Jess!
