Description of Irene Coletto
Irene has been a sports enthusiast her whole life, competing in swimming, basketball and athletics as a child before later moving into multi-sport disciplines of running (including completing 8 marathons), duathlons and then triathlon. Competing in sports has always been an important part of her lifestyle along with a strong interest in learning varying sports methodologies. As a triathlete Irene has worked closely with her coach Edith Niederfriniger for 4 years. Inspired by Coach Edith, in 2016 Irene decided to leave her job working in the office of environmental consulting, to embark on a full time coaching career. She has enrolled and successfully completed the Trisutto Coaching Certification and also holds a coaching qualification from the Italian Triathlon Federation (FITRI) and Nutrition and Sport Integration (AICS – Italian Association for Culture and Sport). At the beginning my interest to grow as an athlete was great, however I soon became interested in the coaching side of sport also and I began to follow this path. I adapt the Trisutto principles for my athletes, which extend across athletes of all abilities. I believe no goal is too ambitious and I will support my athletes to achieve their goals. Based out of Padua in Italy Irene can also be found in both Tuscany and Playitas (Spain) where she is running a series of Trisutto Coaching Camps. Irene looks forward to working with new athletes and helping them achieve their goals.
