Rockstar Triathlete: Christine Coppola is back!
Christine is such a Rockstar Triathlete. We heard from her a few weeks ago regarding her nutrition transformation and here she is again getting within 15 minutes of her PR at the 70.3 distance at Eagleman 70.3 last weekend, after taking a few years off from the sport.
She raced Puerto Rico 70.3 in March finishing with a 5:54 and now at Eagleman in June she raced with a 5:33 Finish; the girl is back and on her way to accomplish a new PR of sub 5:15 before the end of 2022!
The big secret Christine figured out is that action creates motivation. She started training with us and the improvement and confidence just keeps growing. The results speak for themselves. Way to go Christine!

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
I tried many times unsuccessfully to get back into endurance sports after taking time off. Each time I got frustrated and found it hard to balance personal, professional and sports- So I reached out to Full Circle Coaching.
What is your “A” race for this season?
I had Eagleman 70.3 as an “A” race, but now going to go for another 70.3 for the end of 2022
Please share your BIG goals:
I want to hit my former 70.3 PR of 5:15, go sub-5 for my next 70.3 after that and then get back to full Ironman distance racing again. I also want to complete the Alligator Swim solo in September.
Tell me about your successes so far:
Trying to get back to triathlon was frustrating for me. I took so much time off that I was in really bad shape. My eating habits were terrible too. With the help of Full Circle Coaching, however, I was able to get back, get over my fear on the bike, clean up my nutrition and come within ~15 mins of my PR in just 6 months.
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:

Feeling good and fit, hopefully inspiring others who may be having a tough time coming back or getting started again after pregnancy, being a role model for my son.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Everyone needs support and guidance.
