OUR TEAM

Balancing science and emotion runs deep in our veins. Our founder, Dr. Eric Abecassis has always personified – in his own ways – the beauty that sits at the intersection of technology and passion.

Eric has achieved the kind of sport-life balance that many of us only dream of. Luckily, he’s brought together a valuable team of like-minded sports and life enthusiasts, experts in training, AI, machine learning, recovery, and more, and we’ve now empowered an app to help everyone do the same – regardless if you’re at the beginning, middle, or peak of your training journey.

Founder & CEO

Gretell OTANO

CHIEF COMMERCIAL OFFICER

Why do you train?

To be better – fitter and healthier and a role model to my son and daughter.

Favorite song to train to

Being Cuban, anything with a Latin beat makes me want to get up and dance

Dream training location

The location is not as important as the people I’m training with. Jogging with my mother and sister is a blast; riding MTB with my husband is always an adventure; road biking with my dad while listening/singing to Latin music is my idea of the perfect MS-150!

Current goal

I want to get back in shape and feel like I did before baby #2. A few years back I did the MS-150 from Houston to Austin and I loved it, so I want to repeat it next year!

Guilty pleasure

I don’t have one, but three: crusty freshly baked bread, cheese, and a good Pinot Noir.

RAELEIGH HARRIS

HEAD COACH

Why do you train?

To prove to myself that age is just a number - to discover what is possible and push my limits. I love to race, and being dedicated to training allows me to really show up to a race ready to push and challenge myself.

Favorite song to train to

“Roar” by Katy Perry – it gets me going every time!

Dream training location

Oahu - or almost anywhere in Hawaii!! Although I live in Lake Tahoe - which is pretty dreamy when it’s not snowing.

Current goal

To win a second 70.3 AG World Championship

Guilty pleasure

A glass of Antique Tawny Port accompanied by my favorite dark chocolate, heaven!

LANCE WATSON

ADVISOR & OLYMPIC COACH

Why do you train?

A day is not complete without working out – training is about physical and mental health, and getting my daily endorphins. Competition is icing on the cake.

Favorite song to train to

80’s rock. Current Country. R&B. U2. Journey. Calvin Harris. Chris Stapleton. Queen. Love all music. Don’t make me pick one!

Dream training location

Noosa, Australia. Pretty much anywhere with clean water to swim in, trails to run and the climate to ride in shorts.

Current goal

To plan a quarterly sports adventure. New country, new mountain, new ocean, new forest, new urban center, new finish line.

Guilty pleasure

Single Malt Scotch!

SCOTT SCHNITZSPAHN

PERFORMANCE LEADER

Anything Beastie Boys or Van Halen

Dream training location

Lush pine forests

Current goal

Consistency

Guilty pleasure

An afternoon Dr. Pepper.

TRACE TIDWELL

Data Scientist

Why do you train?

Initially just to get in shape. Then for the challenge of completing certain races. Now it’s almost like therapy, in that it’s often the only time during the day where I can just shut the world out and focus on me.

Favorite song to train to

I pretty much only listen to music when doing hard sessions on the bike trainer, and then it’s something heavy like Avenged Sevenfold!

Dream training location

I'd love to go to the Azores. The climate is great year-round, and it doesn't seem too "touristy." Open-water swimming, mountain biking, and trail running seems like a nice break from "normal" training.

Current goal

Get back into shape! The last year has been pretty wild (finished grad school, started new career, had 2nd child, coronavirus, and more!), so I’ve neglected my training. Long term, I’d love to do one of the Xtri races, particularly Norseman.

Guilty pleasure

Beer. I like beer.

WILL WHITENECK

SOLUTIONS ARCHITECT

Why do you train?

I train to compete in races. Setting goal times and working to achieve them is addictive.

Favorite song to train to

Any song by King Gizzard

Dream training location

Somewhere near Grand Teton National Park

Current goal

Currently working on improving my marathon time

Guilty pleasure

Bad movies

AART GOOSSENS

SPORTS DATA ENGINEER

Why do you train?

I mainly train because I like riding my bike outside, and being fit makes me feel good and be more productive at work.

Favorite song to train to

I don't usually cycle with headphones, but while doing indoor rides, I recently rediscovered jazz funk. "Some Skunk Funk" from the Becker Brothers is one of my favorites.

Dream training location

I go to the Ardennes in Belgium a few times a year. The hills, forests, and quiet really make cycling a joy.

Current goal

After having some back problems in the past years I picked up running and rowing again and my goal is to be able to do both sports without issues and compete in a rowing race in 2022.

Guilty pleasure

Any song with a good saxophone solo: George Michael’s “Careless Whisper”, Joe Cocker’s “Unchain My Heart”. Heck, even the Sunstrokes Projects’s “Run Away”. (Remember “epic sax guy”?)

GAELLE ABECASSIS

HOLISTIC NUTRITION THERAPIST

Why do you train?

I love how training regularly makes me feel, both physically and mentally, how challenging myself with a race goal keeps me motivated, and how rewarding achieving that goal can be.

Favorite song to train to

Playing a medley of the last decade’s best pop/rock songs definitely gets me going!

Dream training location

On a mountain trail, as long as it’s not too technical! And I’m lucky enough to live next to the mountains.

Current goal

I just ran my goal race for the season, so I have to settle on my next goal. Most likely a half marathon.

Guilty pleasure

“Flan patissier,” a French custard pie. Luckily, in the US, there are not that many French patisseries around the corner!

SACHA ABECASSIS

SPORTS PLATFORM SPECIALIST

Why do you train?

I train because when I run in the mountains, I feel like that’s the moment when I’m fulfilling my true nature. So I’m trying to be able to run as much as possible.

Favorite song to train to

“Derecho de admisión” by Ska-P

Dream training location

Up Puy Griou in the Cantal region, but the Valais region does look appealing.

Current goal

Setting a FKT on the Gr400 trail in France.

Guilty pleasure

Gnocchi!
