Claude Winter – Triathlete
“I would like to highly recommend Claudia for any personal training which involved functional athletic training and stretching. I have been an athlete pretty much my whole life. High school and college tennis, and running to supplement the sport.
After college I did keep playing tennis and kept running. In the mid 1990’s I stopped playing competitive tennis and became more serious in running. I started doing local races and did 5k’s, 10k’s, and then half marathons and marathons. In 1997 I found the sport of triathlon and that started another endurance sport that I fell in love with. I also dabbled in road cycle racing for a couple of years as well.
Fast forward to today. After 64 marathons, countless half marathons, 5k’s, 10ks, road cycle racing, 18 half ironman races, 6 ironman races, hundreds of sprint and Olympic triathlons and 10 ultra-marathons my body was finally telling me it had had enough. I always did some sort of stretching, warm ups and cool downs but now I was finding it was uncomfortable to run all the time. I would start slow, stiff and eventually warm up but never really felt good running. I wasn’t injured and just started thinking my old age was my issue. It was hard as running was always my #1 love!
I have known Claudia the last couple of years from our triathlon and running club. I knew she was a trainer with an extensive background in working functionally with athletes. I started having her work with me one on one with functional strength training specifically for what I do in triathlon. I also have weekly stretching sessions with her and she works my full range of motion through the stretching.
After a couple of months I can now tell you that she has helped my range of motion, worked out of lot of my imbalance issues and has made me stronger from the functional training.
It has been a long time since I felt good running and now I feel as good as I ever have. My hips, glutes, hamstrings and quads are now all working well together and I am not always tight.
Claudia has specifically helped me with my challenges. She looks at each athlete as an individual and works diligently to help them be the best they can be.
I highly recommend her for any endurance sports or any sports for specific training! “
“As I close out 2012, I reflect on a year of challenges and goals that I set for myself and accomplished. I learned a lot about self-motivation and surrounding myself with those with the same goals alike.
I’m not going to write a thesis, but I have a few people to thank….Claudia McCoy you are the voice in my head. Without your training/ pushing/ no crying attitude I don’t know how I would push myself. I see the goals you set forth and accomplish (with ease 😉 ) and that is where I strive to be.
