Patrick Perretta is a personal trainer, an indoor cycling coach, a USA cycling coach and a Simply Tri coach. Patrick started his fitness journey by becoming a triathlete to lose weight. After losing the weight and completing a few sprint triathlons, he decided to train for a half Ironman®. While training, Patrick experienced an aneurism. His doctors thought he survived only because he was physically fit. Since then Patrick has dedicated himself to a health and fitness career. “I believe I can be a good example for others who need to overcome physical challenges and weight issues and be a partner throughout their journey,” he says.
