Meet Felipe Loureiro of Breakaway Training in San Diego county

Today we’d like to introduce you to Felipe Loureiro.

Felipe has been successful in triathlon at all levels – from amateur to pro – accumulating over 34 years of experience in the sport and coaching. His athletic success came as he coached others and grew a business. He knows what it takes for you to succeed in any multisport discipline despite your busy schedule. ​

Felipe is a USA Triathlon certified coach, Ironman University certified coach as well as a certified NCSF personal trainer. Felipe has raced in over 600 triathlons, finished over 250 running and cycling races, and still competes in all the multisport disciplines! ​

“I grew up in Brazil. I remember when I was 10 years old and my dad began training for triathlons. Two years later, at 12 years old, I followed in my dad’s footsteps and competed in my first triathlon…and since then, I’ve raced in over 600 triathlon races around the world, including 3 Ironman’s. Triathlon is the reason I came to San Diego from Brazil 25 years ago. I knew San Diego could provide the perfect venue for both daily training and abundant racing opportunities. I was lucky enough to have found my passion when I was 12, and that passion of the triathlon sport has provided me with a fulfilling life of physical training, exciting racing, and the gratifying vocation of coaching others the joy of multisport. I am looking forward to continuing my multisport racing career for many years to come.”

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Took a long time to get smooth, when I first moved to San Diego in 1998 in search of a professional athlete career, I found myself working part-time in coffee shops or delivering pizza. Was not until 2006 when I officially opened Breakaway Training that I was able to focus 100% on coaching my athletes and training towards my race goals.

Made me appreciated even more my life and my work!
