Shangrila Rendon is a pro Ultra Triathlete and the Guinness World Record Holder (2015) as the Fastest Female to complete 5 Ironman in 5 consecutive days, (consisting of 12 mi swim, 560 mi bike, 131 mi run). From walking for an hour every day to and from her first job in the U.S. at age 17, and spending 15 minutes on a treadmill before work at 19 years old, having no athletic background whatsoever, Shangrila Rendon transformed herself into a world class athlete. She did not have a bike, was afraid of water and did not know how to swim until the age of 29. Her journey may have started slow as she was juggling being a medical device engineer full-time and completing a Master’s degree at the same time. However, she was fuelled by guts and driven by pure determination to leave behind her horrible past. She has been thru some dark times - abuse, eating disorder, PTSD, severe depression and alcoholism. Coach Shangrila has been featured in Triathlete Magazine, The New York Times, Outside Magazine, Endurance Sports & Fitness Magazine, RT News and GMA 7’s news. Besides being an athlete, she is also an endurance and triathlon coach, who loves helping people see and achieve their true potential in sports. "My athletes’ goals become my goals. It is rewarding for me to witness my athletes improve and reach their dream goals in sports while still maintaining a balanced life, with no injuries and in good health."Read more Read less
