Beginner Triathlete Rockstar:  Nicole Fuentes

Rockstar: Nicole Fuentes

Coaches Notes:

Nicole just graduated from my 8 week Beginner Tri Program. This is an ideal program to test the waters of the sport of triathlon and see if you are a fit.

I, of course, know that everyone is a fit if they choose to be. If you want to do I triathlon, I will get you there. I guarantee it. But sometimes a new athlete is not sure and this program gets you there safely and builds confidence in all the areas of the race.

Nicole’s success at her first Sprint Triathlon was because she really showed up- for the daily training (30-45 min/ day only) and the weekly coach calls. All while being a busy Mom of 3, wife, and Professional.

She invested in herself, and now I am happy to say she is joining us for the 16 Week Triathlon Transformation program for her next race goal- An Olympic Distance Triathlon.

Please see her notes below about how every other aspect of her life improved by joining our program.

Way to go, Nicole! Super excited for the next stage of the journey- Thanks again for choosing Full Circle Coaching!

What is your age?
47 years old. 

What is your profession?:
Positive Psychology Consultant. Corporate trainer. Speaker. Author. Life Coach.

I help organizations build an engaged workforce and increase profitability by activating the sense of purpose and emotional well-being of their leaders, managers, and team members.

Why did you choose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
I love their holistic approach to training. Not only learning about each one of the sports but also learning about nutrition and mindfulness. I also wanted to join a community, meet people and make new friends as I recently moved to this country.

PD. Coach Erinne got me at “Yes! You can definitely do a triathlon with your mountain bike.”

What is your “A” race for this season?
I joined the beginner’s program to complete the Integrity Multisport Sprint Triathlon. 

What are your BIG goals?

  • Be healthy
  • Enjoy nature
  • Make friends
  • Have fun
  • Complete an Olympic triathlon

Tell me about your successes so far!

  • I completed my first-ever sprint triathlon! 
  • Learning to swim in open water.
  • Pd. Also, managing to get in the pool at 5:00 am. The rest of the day was a piece of cake. 

What were some of your biggest improvements in performance for each of the following? Swim, Bike, Run, and Nutrition/Health. Please include any Personal Records and Goals achieved.
A nice side effect of the training program was that I could focus and concentrate on writing. My creativity and willpower improved in all areas of my life. I sleep better, have more energy, and feel calmer. My stress levels were reduced. I complete most of my to-do’s when I train. 

The most significant improvement for me was in swimming. This is a sport that I have yet to formally practice and learn the technique. 

The bicycle was where I felt most comfortable. This is my favorite sport. I knew there was only so much I could do on a mountain bike. So instead of worrying about everyone riding faster than me, I enjoyed the rides and the sunrises. 

I ran the 5K under 30 minutes for the first time in many years. 

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:

  1. Coach Ollie with her patience, attention to detail, kindness, and sense of humor. 
  2. Being part of a friendly and welcoming community. 
  3. Knowing that there was a time and place to show up and train. Accountability. 

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?

  • Spending time in nature.
  • Being surrounded by inspiring teammates.
  • Witnessing my own progress and the amazing feeling that comes with accomplishing goals. 

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
Give yourself permission to have this experience. The FCC coaches will meet you where you are. The worst thing that can happen is that you fall in love with the sport.
