I hope you are having an amazing February! BASE Real Bars are back in stock! It's amazing how great these bars taste - especially when they are fresh from the factory.
As a valued partnered, I am super excited to offer you our first promotion of the year for bars. This is a simple special - buy 2 boxes of bars, get 1 free. You must add 3 boxes into your shopping cart for this promotion to work. You can add any flavor of bar. Go to: https://www.baseperformance.com/products/base-bars?add= and use the code: BUY2GET1
This will come out to $72 for three boxes of bars, plus shipping. A 33% savings compared with your standard 20% discount!
If you want free shipping, you can add one jar of RKT Fuel, or two bags of Hydro, and this will get you over the $100 free shipping (in the US).
Please forward this on to your entire team of athletes! This can be shared with any and all!
As always, please feel free to reply if you have any additional questions.
I want to thank everyone who has been standing by in the year 2020 and I hope we can work together again in 2021. I'm honored for the loyalty my athletes have shown and want to invite others to join us in 2021 for some great training and racing. If you are following me on Facebook, please share with your friends and family so I can increase my followers. My goal is to have 1500. Whether you are doing your first 5k or first sprint triathlon or trying to complete your Ironman Legacy events or training for your first 100 mile ultramarathon, Fortius can help you achieve your goals. For the holiday season and through the end of January if you sign up for a 6 month (or more) customized training plan you will get two 45 minute one on one coaching sessions.
If you are not using Best Bike Split to race triathlons you are missing out on a great tool to have a better run off the bike. https://www.bestbikesplit.com/demo-race-details
What’s the route for tomorrow’s ride?
Looking for clearer air with the cool kids
If anyone is interested, I am headed to Malibu tomorrow to do a mile swim and 4 hour bike ride. Be in water no later than 7:30 and get on bike shortly there after. Bike ride will be 60 to 70 percent effort.
Join in the conversation on all things triathlon in this newly created Facebook group. Share tips, articles and photos or simply ask for support and encouragement ahead of a big race. Please share and lets bring the worldwide triathlon community together!

Remember that feeling you had when you last raced and crossed the finish line of your most memorable event?
If you feel like your training has no direction at this time and we need to reframe your goals and training objectives, this is a good time to start thinking long term and do your annual training plan for 2022. Planning should start taking shape as early as possible so you can prioritize your training. The fall and early winter seasons are the best times to address your weaknesses or areas of concern.
Contact me to set up a meeting and start dreaming of the finish line once again. With @fortiuscoaching you will have personalized training with an entire team right there next to you. #fortiuscoaching #fortiusracing #triathlon #running #cycling #swimming #swimbikerun

Coffee Rides are easy until they are not. Fun Labor Day ride with a stop at Groundwork’s Coffee in North Hollywood before heading up into the mountains for a stroll along Mulholland Drive straddling Hollywood and the SF Valley. @antomahroukian @enriquepaaris @gbarrio #cycling #coffeeride #recoveryspin #summervibes

Today’s ride started in the mid 50’s as we rode from Westlake to Potrero then down to PCH where the sun came out and we enjoyed a slight tailwind. We finished climbing Decker Canyon as the temperatures rose into the 90’s. Luckily the suffering was short-lived and we descended happily Westlake Bl. back to our starting location. Just another challenging and rewarding weekend ride for #fortiusracing Team. #fortiuscoaching #cycling #triathlontraining #santamonicamountains

for the past couple months and my favorite thing about it is being able to see the time for each length. This allows me to set a pace at the start of a long set and keep it for the duration. #swimming @fortiuscoaching @gbarrio #triathlon

It’s never the same ride and every week each athlete gets stronger and stronger. We are consistent and enjoy pushing each other as we find new limits each week. This time we ventured out and rode around Elysian Park in addition to our Griffith Park and LA River area. #fortiuscoaching #ridestronger #rudyprojectna #rokasports #cycling #triathlon @enriquepaaris @i_am_mr_nurse @spencer35 @gmroybal @antomahroukian @gbarrio @c.cordoba9497 @triathleteno2

Fortius Racing Rapha Compass Challenge Ride # 3 from Rose Bowl to Mt. Wilson

This past week a few of our athletes joined me to complete the Rapha Compass Challenge. Over three rides we checked off 4 iconic points in Los Angeles. We rode 111 miles with over 11,000 feet elevation gain hitting the following 4 points:

—Griffith Park Helipad
—Camp 9 Fire Station
—Rose Bowl
—Clear Creek Junction at Angeles National Forest

For bonus riding we also threw in Mt. Wilson.

Thanks to everyone else who rode with us. Enjoy our video from today’s ride and next week we return to hit some climbs in the Santa Monica Mountains.

These are just a few of the things that we do as a team and if you are interested in joining us feel free to reach out to Gerardo Barrios. Team membership begins at $50 a month and is included free with all customized training plans. Rudy Project North America, Hyperice, Enrique Marquez Paris, Out-Fit, Mike Roybal

Fortius Coaching’s Crystal Lake Climb

This weekend’s special event with Fortius Coaching was a supported ride up to Crystal Lake Cafe in the Angeles National Forest. The official climb is just over 14 miles with over 4400 feet of elevation gain and an average grade of 5.8. It’s one of the toughest climbs in California. Congratulations to all the athletes who conquered this climb for the first time on a very warm, sunny day.

My favorite one in the valley is the San Fernando Regional Pool.

It’s not a secret that success happens when you do what it takes to get better one day at a time. From doing a swim video analysis, to improving bike cadence on the trainer to getting stronger on the run hitting the trails, @raarnush did all the work to have a great race at St. George 70.3. She finished on the podium while stopping to help a fellow competitor during the run who finished ahead of her in 4th place. Up next, Ironman Coeur d’Alene. #fortiuscoaching #amazingathletes #triathlon #ironmantri @castelli_triathlon @roka

Fortius Racing Again in 2021 at St. George 70.3

It takes a special person to do a half Ironman. It takes a remarkable person to race at St. George. But for anyone who returns to do it again, it takes a lot of strength and courage because we know what it takes to race a hard course in tough conditions. Congratulations to all of you who re-conquered St. George 70.3. And for making the commitment to train and prepare foe this race during a pandemic!

Nancy Ishizawa’s feat was nothing short of prodigious: 53 hours, 170 miles, over 33,000 elevation gain, and only 9 hours of sleep during her 4 day adventure at the Born To Run Ultramarathons from All We Do is Run! Nancy had the second most miles of 20 women and 7th overall out of 53 runners who attempted the feat. For Nancy it was the biggest event of her life and she did not disappoint her fans and teammates! Congratulations on your incredible feat, Nancy! @fortiuscoaching #fortiusracing #running #ultramarathon #trailrunning #borntorunultras2021 @bdxsportsmed @dreddie_bdx @gbarrio
