Description of Ed Rechnitzer

I have been very active in sports since growing up in Ottawa. It was not until university that I discovered triathlon, captaining the Royal Military College varsity team. I was also an AG member of Team TBB in its last year. Eventually coaching for me would become a fusion/extension of my military leadership experiences and an innate sense of service to others. 

Outside of triathlon I competed in 4-way formation skydiving (logged ~1960 jumps), was a provincial champion and national silver medalist, and an Accelerated Free Fall Instructor. I was also a professional ski instructor at Lake Louise, and still enjoy xc skiing and biathlon. Having been involved in so many sports has helped develop my coach’s eye from different angles and a toolbox of versatile skills. 

As a coach I am highly invested in my athletes’ goals. I strive to extract the most from them. I endeavor to turn hardships and set-backs into opportunities to embolden them, to be stronger in character, to try harder, to never give up even when success seems illusive. I see every day as an opportunity to improve, to shape the next performance, to become better. Success has a price – hard work. There are no shortcuts. While talent can be a blessing, I believe that exceptional commitment, high determination, an uncommon will to succeed and a fire in the gut attitude are even more invaluable assets. I value humility above all else. It helps keep self-importance at large and conceit from interfering with one’s willingness to recognize and accept the strengths, ideas and help of others in becoming the best one can be. Ultimately, the mind is like a parachute. It always works best when open. I look forward to being a part of your goals, your training, your success.

Why do you work with Trisutto?

I have a singular focus and unwavering commitment to be the best coach I can be. My approach in this relentless pursuit has followed that of a martial artist – seeking to draw on a Master’s wisdom and depth of experience, to listen and learn, to a understand and absorb, in an unending spiral quest to forge a better version of myself for my athletes. That is why I sought out Brett’s (Sutton) mentorship and guidance. I am truly honored to have earned Brett’s confidence and to now be in position to apply the training concepts and principles that have generated so much success in our sport, at all levels.
