About our coaches:
Hi. My name is Marta.
My passion for sport started when I was young: from skateboarding, roller-skating, mountain biking, hiking, mountain running, swimming, snowboarding, iceskating and more.. My parents never could keep me sitting still – I was always outdoors climbing trees or collecting new bruises chasing each other with friends.
I’m 36 years old now and my passion to move progressed into teaching others. I’m hooked in spreading love to active lifestyle and showing people that barriers are only in our heads. When we commit to something and we believe in ourselves even a little, it’s a huge start.. and always ends up with great success and a big smile.
From the last 3 years I specialise in Triathlon training. I simply chose this sport because it is complex and it requires not only having knowledge on the 3 sports (swimming, biking, running) but also perfecting your race nutrition, the mental side, knowing the secrets of staying injury free when the load is greater and learning to rest for well balanced training. Triathlon requires having them all trained as much as the physical side of training. I love nailing all the small elements of it and I’m sure you will get hooked too.
In the last 3 years I have completed the following races:
2017 Kilkenny Sprint Triathlon – 4th Place AG
2017 Onico Iron Dragon – 4th Place AG time 2h 46min 25sec
2018 Harbourman Wicklow Irish Championships Middle Distance
2018 Half Marathon – time 1h45min 19sec
2018 Half Ironman Polish Championships at Bydgoszcz Borowno – 1st Place AG time 5h 45min 04sec
2019 Half Marathon Wicklow Mountains – 1h 53min
2019 Harbourman Wicklow Irish Championships Middle Distance
2019 Half Ironman Gdynia – 14th Place AG time 5h 28min 21 sec
2019 Full Ironman Barcelona Calella – 10th Place AG time 10h 49min 10sec
My next few years plans are definitely more Triathlons, Swim Runs and Ultramarathons. I love to travel so I treat the sport a great reason to see the world – I already can’t wait for all the challenges!
Since I was born near the mountains – my heart will always be there and I will always spend my free time running the new peaks, getting lost in the woods and finding my way out – my big goal is to run 200km for my 40th Birthday.
If you would like to start the journey with me and Alicja, we promise you will love the training, love the results and see yourself higher every time. I believe you can do anything you dream of! The limitations are only in our heads! Don’t let them stop you! Everything is possible! No matter of age, gender, previous experience or other people opinions about you. All you need is commit and believe!!
I was active all my life and don’t imagine my life without sport, fitness & adventure.
I have started my journey with Karting- small racing cars, as a small girl I was competing with boys, taking part in regional & national championships.
My second & third love was football & then basketball. I was playing in high school and university as a play-maker. Being part of the team in university championships.
I absolutely fell in love in windsurfing in high school and it’s my passion since then.
I’m current women Irish Champion in Windsurfing Slalom in Master category- Energia Irish Windsurfing Downings Event 2017, 2018 & 2019.
I followed my instinct and knowing that movement & sport is my destiny I have finished my University and became a Physical Education Teacher, worked in school for a year and then moved to Ireland.
I finished with first class honours my Leisure instructor course in University of Limerick and since then I never stop educating myself. I’m absolutely fascinated with human body and how it works. We are such amazing machines designed to move, perform and to explore our planet.
I believe that everyone has this in themselves, reason and passion to move and be active. I’m always trying to challenge myself and I’m not afraid to try something new.
I’m starting my journey with running and who knows maybe triathlon in nearest future.
My mission is to motivate & inspire others that they can live without limitation and that they can do whatever they imagine. We are creating those fears and doubts in our heads and only we can face them.
My next journey is 44 km marathon- Bieszczadzki Marathon- in mountain in January 2020. I can’t wait!
