About Amy Farrell

 

Amy Farrell is an elite age group triathlete and former professional who is on pace to finish the 2013 season ranked in the top 5 in her age group by the USA Triathlon Organization. Amy began training with HPT 2 years ago after an 11 year hiatus from the sport. She is a Physical Education Teacher in Tupper Lake, NY where she lives with her husband and daughter. She is also the running coach at her local high school.

 

"When I gave Coach Julio German 4 weeks to prep me for Ironman Rhode Island 70.3 in 2012, I knew triathlon training would never be the same for me. After an 11 year hiatus from Ironman, I expressed my desire to qualify for Kona and immediately knew Coach Julio could help me reach my goal."


"Despite racing as a pro in my 20s, I have never prepared so thoroughly for a race in my life! I went into each race this season feeling so ready that my usual pre-race nerves were minimal.  

I not only qualified for Kona, but I went beyond my expectations to finish 4th in my age group with a time of 9:50. "

 

"With the help of High Performance Training I was able to reach my potential and I love how my body responded to this Ironman training program -thank you Coach Julio and HPT!"

 

-Amy

"I never thought I would be able to seriously run or compete again after injuries side-lined me for months.

 

Julio not only gave me workouts that were curtailed to my goals and my personal biomechanics, but more importantly, he gave me the confidence to excel, and he was able to push me in ways I never dreamed possible.

 

I am in the best shape of my life not only because of his knowledge and expertise in developing training plans, but also because of his patience and care to my specific needs."

About Tara Allen

 

Tara has been training with HPT for 18 months.  While she began as an accomplished runner, she has continued to make marked improvements thanks to adjustments in form and strategic changes to her training regimen.  Tara won the female masters division of the Harrisburg Marathon in 2012 with a PR of 3:10.  She is a high school Spanish teacher and a mother of 2.

 

I’ve  been training with Julio for 18 months and not only have I had personal bests in every event from the 5k through the marathon, I have learned how to be a more efficient runner.

 

I trust Julio’s knowledge, his expertise and his devotion to coaching.  What sets Julio apart is that he is focused on the whole person, not just the athlete.

 

He understands that I have a full time job, a husband and two small children and that sometimes workouts need to be adjusted.

 

Julio is a true professional in every way; always available to answer a phone call or monitor a track workout.  I owe it to him to do my best each and every day for all that he does for me.

About Kristina Dorfman

Kristina Dorfman is an elite amateur triathlete who has placed in the top 5 overall female finishers of the Jarden Westchester Triathlon for 2 years in a row.  When she started with High Performance 3 years ago, she didn’t even know how to use her gears.  She swims, bikes and runs with HPT.  Kristina is a mother of 3 and active volunteer in her community.

 

“Training with High Performance took me to an entirely new awareness of my abilities.  The coaches are amazing, personable and really understood the goals I had and were realistic with the time I could dedicate to reach my goals.

 

Additionally, HPT cycling classes took me to an entirely different level of fitness.  I learned the fundamentals of cycling and the workouts built up my confidence as well as my strength, endurance and speed.  It really is a tailored workout in a fun group setting with a wide variety of people (personalities, goals, abilities).”

About Julie McGuire

 

Julie came to HPT after registering for her first triathlon.  She was new to swimming and

cycling but quickly became adept at both.  She competed in her first race in July of 2013 and

not only conquered the open water but also cycled and ran her way to an impressive finish.  She

continues to train hard for the next season while also teaching and running Boot Camp by the Beach in Rye Brook, NY.  In addition, Julie is a devoted wife and busy mother of two young children.

 

“I feel very fortunate to have met Noga who has inspired me and made me

stronger.

 

Being a 41-year-old non-swimmer I decided 2013 was the year to tackle my

goal of learning to swim and completing my first triathlon. Much easier said than done!

 

From my very first session with Noga, I knew that I was in the best hands. She

made every effort to keep me calm, comfortable and confident in the water.

She delicately helped me manage my initial panic and frustration but don’t get

 me wrong she was never easy on me!

 

She pushed hard and had me breathing correctly and swimming laps within just a few short weeks. She helped me to overcome the mental blocks and always had a reassuring smile on her face. Noga is compassionate and truly committed to her athletes. I enjoyed having the opportunity to train with her other athletes who were extremely supportive...not to mention a lot of fun!

 

As I stood nervously at the shoreline waiting to start my first triathlon I looked over to Noga, who gave me her reassuring smile and I knew I was good to go! I will always remember approaching that finish line with Noga waiting with a huge smile on her face.

 

I was thrilled beyond words to achieve this goal and incredibly grateful to Noga for not only preparing me so well but for making it such a positive experience for me. She is one of the most inspiring people I know and I’m lucky to call her my coach and my friend.”
