Featured Athlete - September 2015

"Growing up I played soccer, basketball, tennis, rode my bike and skate board, and did some rock climbing. During and after college, I didn't really do much for fitness besides the occasional pick up basketball game, recreational bike ride, or short run. 
 
In 2011 as I was nearing the end of graduate school at age 31, I decided to reintroduce fitness into my life but in ways that were new and exciting to me. My oldest brother had recently started triathlon training and racing and I was inspired. He had lost a lot of weight and while that was not a goal of mine, I couldn't let my big brother show me up. I have now been training and racing for five seasons, having completed several 5ks and 10ks, four half marathons, two marathons, several sprint triathlons, a couple of Olympic distance triathlons, and next month I will complete my second 70.3 distance half-ironman. 
 
Also, through watching the Ultimate Fighter and UFC events and having grown up in Brazil, I developed an interest in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Upon moving to Marietta from Austin, Texas in 2011, I immediately joined Impact - Kenny Kim Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I have been training consistently (two or three times a week) now for over four years and was recently promoted to purple belt. I have also been competing periodically in local Jiu Jitsu tournaments. 
 
My wife and I now have a five month old daughter and staying committed to my workouts has been a challenge, but having a competition or a race on the horizon always keeps me motivated to continue grinding week after week and bettering myself every day. As I often hashtag, #bjjandtriathlon!"
