Chris Berg

TRIATHLON

Chris is a resident of San Diego, California. He has been racing triathlons since 1998, and coaching the sport with Breakaway Training since 2010. Prior to getting involved in the sport, Chris competed as a swimmer, hockey player, and volleyball player. Chris’ passion is to help other athletes achieve their triathlon dreams. He has won the Mission Bay Triathlon, one of the longest running triathlons in the world, and considered by many to be the birthplace of the sport.

Accomplishments from 2021: I wish I had more to say, I fell off my bike a few times, got some stitches and more tetanus shots than I probably needed. Ran too many KMs too quickly, then ended up running no KMs for a while. Found balance by focusing on making sure my body can give what is asked of it day in and day out.
Goals for 2022: In 2022 it is all about, wait for it.....RECOVERY. I did too much too soon last year and found myself on the sidelines for a little. 2022 is about bringing things back in moderation so I can be going full gas when the time is right. The real goal is to train more, go hard and have fun.
Favorite Fluid flavor: Huge fan of chocolate but throw some Cinnamon Vanilla in an iced coffee after a workout and that is a solid days work and reward!
A song that fires you up: Master of Puppets by Metallica, but I have gotten lost in a trance listening to TOOL. Faith No More makes regular appearances when it is time to put down some serious efforts.
