Coach Marcelo Holcberg
Marcelo’s competitive athletic career began in 1981 in road racing. He specialized in running and competed in 5&10K distances. His PR’s were 16’40 and 34’50. You may already know some athletes that he use to train with like Aldo Virano (the Accelerade & Endurox guy). Afterwards, he began competing in triathlons in 1988. His preferred distance was the Sprint. His best time was 55’00.
He was trained by the best of the best in Brazil, Professor Wanderlei de Oliveira, the famous “guru” of track & field and road racing. Wanderlei de Oliveira worked with European Olympic level runners and World record champions from Portugal in the 80’s. He has been surrounded by Olympic and National level athletes for over 10 years. In 1997, he decided that his desire to help others exceeded his desire to compete, so he began to coach full time.
In 1998 he became part of the 1st group of USAT Certified Coaches. With over 40 years of experience and 25 years as a Coach, he knows what it takes to get to the next level/s. He works every day with different levels of athletes and different personalities. The most common mistakes that he see everyday are “overtraining” & “under training” and lack of patience from the athlete perspective to “jump” in to long distance racing too soon. Understanding how to train correctly; learn the proper swim technique and pacing; how to use your bike gear & proper bike zones and learning the best running form and knowing what pace to follow (and zones to be in) for all your workouts. These things and much more provide a glimpse of what you will learn when you become a TRI-2-ONE athlete! There is no guessing. There is no room for mistakes.
Most recently in 2016, he became an Ironman U certified coach and USAT Level II in 2019
