Rockstar Triathlete Matthew Kuscher
Coach’s Notes: Matt reached out to me after seeing one of our own- Jenny Lee Molina complete her first triathlon with us using our Beginner Triathlon Program.
He had zero experience in swim, bike or run. We got to work with evaluations first to assess any weaknesses, and find him a bike- which he borrowed from one of my other athletes (Thanks Jesse Jimenez!)
Due to the nature of the restaurant business and late nights, he could not make the early morning group training sessions, so we trained 1 on 1.
This is a great way to get the focused attention to learn to swim, bike and run quickly. After just 8 weeks he accomplished his goal 2 triathlons with a smile on his face, leaner healthier body.
Matt’s best compliment came when he said” I hate this stuff but for some reason I am enjoying the process so you must be doing something right!”
Thanks Matt for trusting us with your triathlon journey. CAn’t wait to see what’s next!
Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? I was inspired by my friend Jenny Lee Molina and her journey to her first triathlon with Full Circle Coaching on social media.
What is your “A” race for this season? My A race was just to complete my 1st triathlon. I did the Huntington’s disease race in February as a C race, (training race) and then the Clash Sprint Triathlon a few weeks later.
Please share your BIG goals: To start my journey of a healthier lifestyle
Tell me about your successes so far: I have completed 2 and have plans to complete two more by mid summer.
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:
My 1st swim was very tough in the Huntington’s sprint triathlon, so I trained a little extra in the ocean and by my 2nd race, my swim was the easiest part even though it was twice the distance of the first race. I was proud of myself for that.
Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
1. A healthier diet
2. Accountability; having a coach push me to make sure I don’t slack.
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
I never thought in a million years, I would do this kind of training and that’s what excites and motivates me to do it more. It’s still so foreign to me and that’s exciting.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
It’s great because you mix it up, you don’t have to love running, swimming or cycling but if you like each a little then every day you get to switch it up. I love not training the same thing every day so it never feels boring!
