As a lifelong sports enthusiast I ran my first marathon at the age of 30 in 2006 and did my first Triathlon the year after. I grew up playing as many sports as possible and continued with Football, Basketball and Volleyball through high school. I was lucky enough to play football in college as a Tight End and after graduating in 1998 I took a break from working out and got a bit lazy as one would say. Many football players do not transition to the Triathlon world naturally so it was a great challenge for me, that I still enjoy today. I naturally gravitated toward the bike after years of building strength in my legs - which is my favorite sport of the three in our discipline. I race in Sprint, Olympic and 70.3 distance races and due to my size compete in the Clydesdale division when possible.
I have attended the Fiesta Island bike workouts since 2016 and took over as one of the leaders in 2018. Through this workout we have helped both novice and expert bikers excel in their skills such as riding in a pack close to others, accelerating quickly, taking the lead in a peloton, maintaining an interval at a high heart rate and running off the bike (ROTB or OTB Run).
My favorite activity of this workout is our regular Time Trials (TT) which occur from May - September each year and are a fun way to compete against yourself and others.
Join Troy @ Fiesta Island Interval workout Wednesdays (May-Oct), starting at 5:30pm.
