Endurance Sport

 

Teddy Galien - Founder

I am an American age group triathlete with a French accent. I grew up in France and move to the US when I was 26 years old. I have been in the world of cycling pretty much my whole life and have always been a decent runner. In my early 20’s I hung up my bike and focused on my career (and partying every weekend 😁), but later on I ended up 30lbs heavier, smoking and eating the most unhealthy food all the time.

In 2017 I started to feel sick, I was having headaches, vision issues, difficulties to focus... I spent a lot of time going to doctors and specialists, with everyone of them telling me nothing was wrong. The last appointment I had was with a cardiologist, he ran some tests which were all good, but after a long conversation he made me realize that my symptoms were from intense stress. His recommendation was to exercise frequently, drink more water, eat healthy, and quit smoking. So I quit smoking, eat mostly plant based, started the journey of triathlon, and my health issues were going away.

When I started training, I could not swim a single pool length in freestyle, my bike and running performance were ok but with plenty of room for improvement. I started with a few sprint triathlons, then raced Olympic distance, and quickly jumped into my first 70.3 Ironman in 2019, which I finished in 5h12min.

Today I race all distance triathlon all year long, I raced the 70.3 Ironman World Championship 2021 and I will be racing the 2022 World too, I finished my first full Ironman in Lake Placid in sub 12h, and my next goal is to qualify to the all triathlete dream race: Kona

My success has come from a commitment to a lifestyle change, I follow a training plan every week that keep me in shape, I go riding or running outside and enjoy nature as much as possible, it is a great way to evacuate stress. And being plant-based makes me feel better, healthier and I recover much faster.
