I’m Päivi, a triathlon coach and a wellbeing advocate with twenty years’ working experience in the sport and fitness industry. I’ve worked as a Triathlon Coach for 7 years, a Personal Trainer specialising in postural alignment corrections for 12 years, Running Coach for 14 years and Group Fitness Instructor for 20 years.
I started triathlon about 12 years ago and I absolutely fell in love with the sport! It is incredible to think about all the amazing experiences that I have been fortunate to have through triathlon. I have travelled around the world for training and racing seeing amazing places, met so many incredible people and made deep friendships. After 4 full distance finishes, 16 half distance races, 15 marathons and tens and tens of other endurance events, it is not the medals that I cherish the most, it is all those amazing memories I have collected on the way. Now my passion is to help others to find fulfilment, happiness and wellbeing through triathlon.
As a coach my main goal is to help others to achieve their goals while experiencing positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and achievement, the key components of happiness, through sport. To me it is not only important to achieve your goals, but also that you enjoy the journey.
I encourage you to Dream Big, Start Small and Take Action Now.
