“Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing,
but to turn it into glory..”
Nice to meet you, I am Veronica
As I said, I was born in a very tiny medieval town, in the middle of the biggest and most beautiful countryside you can possibly imagine.
When I was 20 years old, I decided to live in Milan because of computers.
After several years of working in the IT and Software department, with a desk-bound job and always at the office, I decided to get back in shape, so I discovered Triathlon.
Swimming had always been my great passion, so I added cycling and running and started an exciting adventure.
I have competed as an Age Group athlete in more than twenty short-distance races, as many open water, running and cycling races.
I have never judged my results on my performance.
My main focus was on overcoming fears and obstacles, which are inevitable when doing such an intense sport.
I wanted to change my lifestyle, my mindset and become a whole new person.
From the couch to being an athlete.
I discovered a fascinating world, and I decided to make this sport my job.
I am also an athlete for NC Milano Triathlon, TriangleSports team (Trisutto group), and Alessandro Vanotti‘s VanottiCycleTeam.
Who was I before sports coaching?
I was in high school when I discovered my passion for Information Technology, and I made a career out of it.
I was 20 years old, when I moved to Milan, leaving my first job in Siena, in an emergency rescue company.
I found my first IT job right after my arrival, and this was the very beginning of everything.
I worked with CEOs, international managers and presidents.
I travelled all over Europe as an IT Specialist.
I ran my own company too.
It was a breathtaking journey.
But guess what I loved the most about all of this?
Why? They needed MY help.
They needed to be understood.
They needed to trust someone and to rely on a professional to solve their problems.
I have always cared very much form my Users.
As I care now for my ATHLETES.
Then I met Endurance Sports
It was not love at first sight though.
At first, I hired coaches and instructors, but I found myself always struggling.
So, I decided to fill what was an empty hole of needs for all the athletes I met (including me).
I became a coach.
It was not a comfortable journey.
But I kept believing I can make the difference.
This is where my “Fitness Garden” idea was born.
