Interview with Lisa Roberts:

Lisa is a 6x iron-distance champion and multiple course record holder, making regular appearances on podiums around the world.   She has been a professional triathlete since 2009 and business owner since 2008. A professional triathlete for 12 years, Lisa is now making the shift to elite ultra trail running and other endurance events. She already has 2 wins and 1 course record under her belt.

Lisa is known for her consistency, strength, perseverance, 'can do' and 'never give up' attitude.  She is a relentless presence with closing run speed and persistence to the bitter end, never letting the competition feel content.  She attributes this perseverance after experiencing a turning point in her family life when, at age 11, Lisa's father was in a swimming accident that left him quadriplegic. This experience and her father's positive approach to a devastating life change is part of her moral fiber that gives her endless positivity and willingness to push through.  Lisa started a landscape design consulting business in 2008, in a time that many thought was foolish. She forged on, powered by her belief that her clientele was looking for change and she could provide that.  It turned out to be a bold, successful move.

Lisa truly believes in community, integrity and giving back.  ​She is a regular at local events - either competing or volunteering. When not racing, Lisa enjoys travelling, baking, landscape design and overzealous home improvement projects.

She has taught bicycle safety classes as a League Cycling Instructor, assists at local events and takes a great interest in helping people of all ages lead active, healthy lifestyles.  She is open, approachable, kind, hard-working, tireless, fair and is a fierce friend.

Watch this space as Lisa builds Spiral Multisport, her training squad promoting an active, healthy and happy lifestyle to people of all ages and abilities. Create the upward spiral and achieve the goals you have set for yourself, following the TriSutto training principles that has created multiple World Champions and Olympians!
