Rockstar Triathlete Walt Norton Finds Success Through Balance
Walt joined my 16-week Triathlon Transformation program to get on the podium in a triathlon.
We got right to work with all of his evaluations- Swim video analysis above and below water, bike fit, bike test and run test and video analysis, and, of course, my Nutrition Essentials lifestyle evaluation.
Walt is a busy lawyer, husband, and father, so having a training program and lifestyle suggestions that fit into HIS life was critical for his success.
The results speak for themselves- See them listed below. Hint: Hint!- way more than one podium!
I am super proud of you, Walt; You are a true Rockstar Triathlete. Knowledge is not power, but applied knowledge is. Way to take the information we gave you and use it to achieve YOUR TRIATHLON DREAMS! Thanks so much for choosing Full Circle Coaching for your Triathlon Journey- I can’t wait to see what is next for you!

Why did you choose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
With the very limited time available due to my professional commitments and family responsibilities, I needed the most effective workouts that could be completed within the shortest amount of time. Being new to triathlon, and to swimming in particular, I needed comprehensive instruction delivered quickly in all phases of triathlon. While I had been a consistent runner in the past, assistance was needed with nutrition to become a better athlete overall.
What is/ was your “A” race for this season?
Key West Int’l Triathlon, 2023
What are your BIG goals?
- Complete a 70.3 within 6 hours in 2024
- Complete an Int’l Tri within 2 hours, 15 minutes
- Complete a Sprint Tri within 1 hour
Tell me about your successes so far! What were some of your biggest improvements in performance for each of the following? Swim, Bike, Run, and Nutrition/Health.
After joining FCT, the following results were achieved:
- Aug 20, 2023, Key Largo Sprint Tri – 1st AG
- Sept 24, 2023, Key Biscayne Sprint Tri – 1st in FCT group
- Nov 12, 2023, MiamiMan Sprint Tri – 3rd AG

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
- Analyzing each workout after it is finished.
- Completing the workout early.
- Keeping the correct balance between non-triathlon responsibilities and training.
What excites you the most about being involved in running/triathlon?
Being fit going on 55 with more energy during the rest of the day and night compared to people much younger than me. Thinking my way through a triathlon race – a triathlon is like putting together a puzzle that is never the same no matter how many times you do it. Meeting time goals and/or finishing on the podium.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
Do it now! What are you waiting for? There is always time in the day, no matter how busy you think you are. I did my first few triathlons on a mountain bike and by swimming a sidestroke/breaststroke.
