My name is María Martín and I live in Berlin, Germany. I was born in the nineties and I am a sportaholic. Sport has been a very important part of my life since I was very small. I played basketball for more than 10 years, but I had to sadly break up with it in 2013 to start my laboral career in Germany.
Fed up after trying all kinds of gyms and workouts, I decided to start running like many other people, frustrated with their sedentary office lifestyle. Finishing my first half marathons made me wish for more ambitious goals and since practicing one sport is not stressful enough (irony), I decided to get into the insane world of triathlon.
In this project I found myself alone, and like most low-budget young millennials, I had to ask my personal consultant Google Search for a response to the keywords “Swimming for Triathlon Beginners”.
The magic of SEO made me find the MySwimPro App and it was then that I began to understand how to train both in a pool and in open waters. Since then, my coach is attached to my left wrist on my Garmin and its vibrations before reaching the wall of each set, is what motivates me to continue improving in a sport that only brings me serotonin joys.
“Since I train alone, MySwimPro has become my digital coach, motivating me every time my wrist vibrates to make sure I meet my lap goal!”
I am currently working toward completing a 2km open water swim in less than 55 minutes! I am following my personal training plan in MySwimPro and enjoy the variety of workouts.
“The MySwimPro app has made it so much easier, starting with the technique training and many workouts I would have never thought of. Never underestimate a swimming app!”
When the MySwimPro team asked me about becoming an ambassador, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to show my followers that it’s possible to improve as an athlete without a coach on deck.
Also, triathlon is a sport were mainly man take part of. Showing that a woman can start from 0 and in 1 year be fit for long distances without the help of clubs or personal trainers, motivates me to promote the addition of MySwimPro as a training successful app.
Thank you so much for sharing your story, María! We’re so excited to have you on board as an ambassador, and can’t wait to see you crush your goals this year!
