3rd Meteora MTB 2018

"At the end of the day, coaching gives me great personal satisfaction. I enjoy leading a healthy lifestyle and sharing my knowledge with others. I have had success in training Elite Athletes and feel that I am able to bring out their potential due to my genuine passion for self-improvement through sport."

Meet the Coach

My name is Thomas Triantafyllou, I was born in 1994 in Greece, but I currently live in Switzerland. I began training in rowing at the age of 12 and won the Greek National Championship five times and the Balkan Championship twice while competing as a national team athlete. Except for these achievements, I took part in a lot of rowing races, as well as long distance running, road & mountain biking, transition sports, swimming, etc. My passion for sports drove me to study Physical Education and Sports Science BSc. and Exercise Physiology MSc. The peak of my career as a coach so far was working as the Greek National Rowing team's coach. While there, I took full advantage of learning from some of the world's best coaches.
Since 2006 when I took up sports, I have experienced victories and joy, but also many setbacks. However, through these experiences and missed opportunities, I have since then turned them into motivation and strengthened my passion for coaching. I created Advanced Physical Activities in order to impart all these experiences and, in combination with my scientific background, to create effective and safe, scientifically based training plans.

P.S. My competitive sporting journey was interrupted by Ankylosing Spondylitis, which I have had since 2013 but was only diagnosed in 2019. However, I never gave up and I am still trying to get the best out of myself!
