What you like most about coaching?
The challenge and satisfaction of seeing all my athletes achieved their goals.
“There are 24 Hours in a day. We typically sleep 8 and work 8 but it’s what we do with the other 8 that counts. Some pack those eight hours with as much training, motivation, passion, pain and joy as their bodies can contain. They will not settle for ordinary; their enthusiasm propels them into the extraordinary. They are endurance athletes.”
Favorite Part of Sport:
Everyone has a strong suit, and everyone has a weak suit. Triathlon is a great sport because you can work from a place of comfort, while also challenging yourself in new and exciting ways. Success is always relative, success keeps you motivated, and triathlon offers many different ways to achieve your success.
My first race was the Baby Blue Triathlon in Araraquara, Sao Paulo – Brazil in 1989.

Felipe has raced in over 600 triathlons, finished over 200 running races, and competes professionally in all triathlon disciplines from sprint distance to Ironmans!
“I grew up in Brazil. I remember when I was 9 years old and my dad began training for triathlons. Two years later, at 11 years old, I followed in my dad’s footsteps and competed in my first triathlon…and since then, I’ve raced in over 600 triathlon races around the world, including 3 Ironmans. Triathlon is the reason I came to San Diego from Brazil 20 years ago. I knew San Diego could provide the perfect venue for both daily training and abundant racing opportunities. I was lucky enough to have found my passion when I was 11, and that passion of the triathlon sport has provided me with a fulfilling life of physical training, exciting racing, and the gratifying vocation of coaching others the joy of triathlon. I am looking forward to continuing my triathlon racing career for many years to come.”
