Coach Marcelo HolcbergCoach Marcel Holcberg

I would like to provide you with a brief introduction on my career as an athlete and coach:

My competitive athletic career began in 1981 in road racing. I specialized in running and competed in 5&10K distances. My PR’s were 16’40 and 34’50. You may already know some athletes that I use to train with like Aldo Virano (the Accelerade & Endurox guy). Afterwards, I began competing in triathlons in 1988. My preferred distance was the Sprint. My best time was 55’00.

I was trained by the best of the best in Brazil, Professor Wanderlei de Oliveira, the famous “guru” of track & field and road racing. Wanderlei de Oliveira worked with European Olympic level runners and World record champions from Portugal in the 80’s. I’ve been surrounded by Olympic and National level athletes for over 10 years. In 1997, I decided that my desire to help others exceeded my desire to compete, so I began to coach full time.

In 1998 became part of the 1st group of USAT Certified Coaches. With over 36 years of experience and 20 years as a Coach, I know what it takes to get to the next level/s. I work every day with different levels of athletes and different personalities. The most common mistakes that I see everyday are “overtraining” & “under training” and lack of patience from the athlete perspective to “jump” in to long distance racing too soon. Understanding how to train correctly; learn the proper swim technique and pacing; how to use your bike gear & proper bike zones and learning the best running form and knowing what pace to follow (and zones to be in) for all your workouts. These things and much more provide a glimpse of what you will learn when you become a TRI-2-ONE athlete! There is no guessing. There is no room for mistakes.

Most recently in 2016, I became an Ironman U certified coach.

Learn and utilize the concept of Periodization; obtain a solid base of endurance and strength before gaining more speed; follow a training plan uniquely designed for you to peak at your best at a race or multiple races…Get what all TRI-2-ONE athletes experience. Supervision and guidance is the key, so we train together 6 to 10 times a week.

“I don’t compete anymore….I Coach!”

"Marcelo's training incorporates methods proven to improve your speed and times. I started training with him in September of 1997. My initial 5K time was somewhere between 21:11 and 21:00 with a marathon time that year of 3:42 at Disney. By October of that year I had improved my time to 20:40 and by January of 1998 I ran a P.R. of 1:36. at the Inaugural Disney Half Marathon. In December of 1998 I was named 2nd fastest runner in my age group (30-34) by Florida Sports Magazine. An energetic trainer, his training is a proven method whether you are novice or experienced I guarantee you will see improvements in a couple of weeks if not in just a couple of races."

My experience as a multisport athlete spans over twelve years.  I have participated in numerous races;  including Triathlon, Marathon and Ironman Florida 2007. During this time, not only have I become an experienced and knowledgeable multisport athlete, I realized that I wanted to share with others that knowledge.  For the past 5 years, I have coached numerous athletes from beginners to the seasoned. I look forward to learning about what motivates you to train and compete and help you become an even better multisport athlete.
