Intro to Triliving
I am Richard Hobson the founder of Triliving. I have been involved with the sport of Triathlon for over 35 years. I spent 10 years as a professional athlete winning 5 national titles and a world championships team gold. I then coached full time for 10 years working as a performance coach based at Bath University with the GB elite athletes. In 2004 I was GB Olympic Triathlon Coach for Athens Olympics. For the past 17 years we have lived and work in France were we have set up and built up a small French holiday complex that we run training camps from but mainly welcome families on holiday – LivingFrance. I now mainly coach age group athletes who are trying to get the best out of their training while maintaining a healthy life balance. I also run a number of training camps throughout the year which cater for all standards and all ages of athletes. I continue to compete as an age group athlete and again in 2010 and 2015 I returned to Kona for another go at the big race on the big Island. A big motivation to me now is just seen athletes achieve there goals and also to see my kids develop in the sport.
Triathlon and sport have hugely enhanced my life, opening many doors and offering many life experiences. It has strengthened my values and enriched my life. These values revolve around always staying positive and optimistic and enjoying life today.
So welcome to TriLiving – more than a name, a lifestyle.
