Luis Andarcia has been competing in triathlons for over 25 years starting out in Venezuela and continuing when he came to San Francisco in 2004. A competitive amateur triathlete and masters swimmer, he has raced over 100 events from ironman triathlons to open water swims and super sprints. He is a 2018 USA Triathlon All-American, American College of Sports Medicine-certified personal trainer, USA Triathlon Level 1 coach, and is a bike fitter for road cycling and time trial bikes.
He also has wider experience in the field of fitness as a Mad Dogg Athletics Spinning Instructor, TRX Certified Trainer, and KBOX Round II Certified Instructor.
"Being involved in the fitness industry plus working to get better results at the races have been the catalysts that keep me doing research for the latest techniques and practices that will help me achieve my own goals, and at the same time apply what I learn with my clients."
"... I look forward to my sessions with Luis every week! It has been three years and I have yet to tire of our ever changing workouts. Luis is enthusiastic, supportive, and a great motivator. As this is my 7th year racing half and full distance ironman, marathons, and swim events, I see Luis for core strengthening, weight training and explosive power. He has strengthened my body so I am able to push myself harder in races safely." -- Ann Weinstock, Endurance Athlete and Mother of 3
“Luis prepared me well with a detailed 16 week training program that progressed from short runs to longer, more intense runs and HILLS. Lots and lots of hills! He was very encouraging along the way as I struggled in the beginning of the program and pushed me (sometimes literally, with a gentle nudge on my back up a hill) on the tougher parts when I wanted to quit! He is a great trainer…tough when he needs to be also personable and fun and easy to get along with. I would recommend him to anyone, and I definitely will train with him again for another race!" -- Pauletta Estes, San Francisco 2nd Half Marathon finisher
“Luis has been an amazing trainer and friend for the past 10 years. He is literally the only thing that can motivate me to get out of bed and into the gym at 6am! He never ceases to kick my butt (despite my constant complaining) but more importantly he always ensures that I am having fun and smiling. Coming from a girl, I know it can sometimes be hard to work with a guy trainer but honestly I would never want to work with anyone else. He makes me laugh, makes my muscles hurt and after each session, I truly look forward to seeing him again!!!" -- Leslie Gillman, weekend warrior
"When I began training with Luis I was a relatively out of shape mother of two with a goal of finishing the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon without embarrassing myself. Luis created an extensive 5-month training plan and helped me complete the workouts and stay on track. He was extremely encouraging and convinced me to change my goal from just finishing the race, to finishing in the top of my age group. With his support and his ass kicking workouts I exceeded my goal at Alcatraz. I am now in my second year of training with Luis, and I am looking forward to even more success this year! I highly recommend him to anyone who is committed to getting in the best shape of their life." -- Meghan Clark, 4th place F40-44 Escape from Alcatraz 2010
"... Luis has gotten me in great shape for ski season and an upcoming heliski trip to Alaska. I am skiing with more confidence, strength and endurance than ever. Luis is very knowledgeable about fitness, nutrition, and sports-specific training programs. And best of all, Luis always maintains a great sense of humor while he's pummeling me during a workout. I highly recommend Luis to anyone training for specific goal who wants to take their performance to the next level.” -- Geoff Beard, Heliskier
