ID Triathlon Team Florida – We need your help!

My name is Hector Torres. I am the Head Coach with Tri Peak Athlete and the Central Florida Tri Club. Since 2018, I have been working with Intellectual Disable Athletes on developing them into the Triathlon sport within Florida. Since we have began, it has grown tremendously! The program started with four athletes and now we have 16 athletes. Our goal is to have at least 40 athletes on the starting line on the USA Games in 2022 held here in Orlando, FL. From these games, we will select the team that will represent us at the 2023 games in Berlin, Germany!

Chris Nikic, was one of the first group.  One of his greatest accomplishments was completing Ironman Florida.  #anythingispossible

With small steps we are changing the world and allowing the athletes with Intellectual Disabilities to be included in every sport! #inclusion 

We know that the triathlon sport is very expensive; therefore, I need your help! I am collecting wetsuits, bikes, bike trainers and sneakers for these athletes. If you will like to donate and help this cause, I will greatly appreciate it! 

You can donate them at:

Tri Peak Athelte

617 Virginia Dr.
Orlando, FL 32803

Help me, help these athletes make a difference! 

If you will like to donate wetsuits, bikes, or bike trainers. Please reach out to me.

Tuesday and Thursday

Hello Team,

Great way to start the week with a new training schedule and method of training for the next couple weeks.

Rate Of Perceived Exertion (RPE)

This week we’re going to focus a lot on perceived exertion. Therefore when I ask for the efforts: 

Easy: Easy means easy.

Moderate: Moderate from a scale 1 to 10 I want you at a five or six.

Hard / Tempo: When I’m asking for hard/tempo effort I want you to scale from 1 to 10 I want you at seven or eight.

Fast: When I ask you to go Fast that means to go hard. Now be smart don’t injure  yourself. Don’t overdo it.
