"When You Feel Like Quitting... Work Harder

About Coach Curtis Masters

My journey into triathlon started when I made the decision to lose weight... I was once over 300 lbs and I would dream of being fit. I wasn't an athlete but I knew I had a drive inside me that could push me to excel... Though my journey is still new and far from over I feel as though I can help others achieve their dreams.

After Loosing 130 lbs I found triathlon and with in the first year of my weight loss I signed up for my first Ironman 70.3 event. Since the completion of that race I've dedicated my life to helping others believe that they too could reach new heights and live their dreams. I believe life is precious and we should live it to it's fullest. I want to help as many people as I can live up to their potential. I intend on pushing my limits year after year to help others believe that anything is possible! If I can do it anyone can!

I have made major changes in my life in the pursuit of living. I believe that living is more than simply existing... I hope through my actions I can help others see an alternative to what society perceives as normal... An active fun filled lifestyle that not only nurtures your body but enriches your mind and soul.
