Going from being an Opioid addict to cleaning up his life, getting an education and having a family, now Justin is working towards qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships working with Coach Lora.

I hired Coach Lora five months ago to help me train for a triathlon. She not only introduced me to new kinds of workouts but challenged me beyond what I had considered myself able to do. She has been encouraging and excited about my progress, willing to answer questions and has shared insights and training tips to help me do my best. She adapted my training to include other activities I enjoy such as hiking, which helped me complete the Rim to River hike in the Grand Canyon recently, and I have discovered that I can do much more than I ever thought I could! Her coaching has been of great value to me and I have become not only more physically fit but mentally tough and confident in myself and my abilities. I am going into my triathlon next week prepared to give it my best and have fun doing it! I would recommend her coaching or consultations to anyone who seeks a professional perspective on goals, training, racing or personal motivation. Thanks, Coach Lora!
