The Bikes for Kids campaign is a wonderful way to give at Christmas.
Ana has been coaching triathletes ranging from the beginner level to the elite level for over 3 years. She has been involved in the sport for over 6 years competing in all distances from sprint triathlons to IronMan distance events. She is a Level I Certified USAT Triathlon Coach.
Ana developed an interest in coaching while realizing how much her involvement with the sport transcended to other areas of her life. She is extremely passionate about working with beginner to intermediate level athletes. She is very detailed oriented and has a proven record of great results with her athletes throughout her coaching career. She is an extraordinary communicator, her ability to connect with people and to empower people are great assets to her coaching skills. We are very excited to have her on board!
“When you are part of someone’s journey, who doubted herself or himself to run a 5k and is now training for their 2nd Marathon, when you see someone who trusted you as a coach proceed into the “elite” field, when you are part of all the process and the growth of an individual, regardless of his or her athletic level, when you see that athlete conquer his or her own goals and overcome limitations, when you see their accomplishments transfer to other aspects of their lives, the reward is so HUGE, the fulfillment is so GRAND that you know you are dedicating your time to something worth it. This is it for me! I love what I do” -Ana Lemus
Ana played tennis at the collegiate level in her home town, she also played for Ridley College in Ontario, Canada while as a boarding student abroad. Ana has been a certified spin instructor and was a favourite at Villa Sport in The Woodlands TX for over 2 years before moving to Oakville. She is also a Certified CXWORX Core Les Mills instructor. Teaching is another passion of Ana’s since connecting with people is what she loves the most.
She is married to Jorge, who is a triathlete as well and together they have 2 kids. Miranda, her 11 year old, plays competitive soccer for U12 and decided to take on ice hockey now that they moved to the great white North. She plays the drums, the guitar, and is involved in anything she can put her sight on. Her son Eugenio is a sports fanatic! He is in grade 7 and plays tennis and basketball currently. He loves to narrate sporting events so perhaps a career in broadcasting is in his future.
Ana is currently in training for Ironman Zurich which will take place on July 2014.

Participating in Tcob is something I dont think i could do without. It offers a hugely supportive environment creating a team atmosphere for what most people would think is an individual sport. The feeling of community at any TCOB event is so strong I think of the group as my other family... My super fit family! I am not just a better athlete for being a member but a better version of me.
