Christine Waitz

Is a two time Ironman Age Group World Champion and a German Long Distance National Champion. Based in Roth, Germany she specialises in triathlon and endurance sport coaching as well as technique training in swimming, road bike and mountain bike. Christine speaks German and English.

From my very beginning in endurance sports I benefited from coaches who had a lot of experience, who knew how to carefully build up a performance and bring an athlete to one’s best. I started to understand how important a coach is when I met Brett Sutton in 2009 and was able to work with him for three years. Just as I enjoyed working with him I now enjoy working with athletes myself.

I started doing triathlon when I was 13 years-old. Being born at Roth it’s probably no wonder I chose triathlon. Having been the opposite of athletic as a child it has been a surprise for those who knew me, though. Looking back, it has been the starting point of almost 20 years of passion for endurance sports. Why?

Triathlon is fascinating. In many ways. Testing personal limits, during ones daily training – and taking it to the extreme at a race.

Triathlon is intoxicating. You can thereof convince yourself every July at Roth. Those emotional memories you can make there are absolutely unique and unforgettable.

Triathlon unites. During a race every athlete will fight for himself. During a race – and solely there. Outside the competition triathlon unites. Not only athletes, but also volunteers, fans, locals. Almost twenty years of sports gave me uncountable friendships around the world.

I’m thankful for all of those experiences. That’s why my goal is not only to help an athlete to find the best version of themselves but also to convey the fascination of endurance sports and everything connected to it.

To my biggest success I count two Age Group World Championship titles, two 5th ranks as a Professional triathlete (Challenge Roth & Ironman Malaysia), German national Title Long Distance and a 2nd rank at the 24h-Mountainbike World Championships.

  • Studied arts and teaching
  • 3 years of training with Brett Sutton during the time I was a professional triathlete at TeamTBB
  • Licensed triathlon coach (DTU C and B-Trainer), licensed Mountainbike coach

I first met Christine in a training camp in Easter 2015 where she was camp manager. I was immediately impressed by her experience, knowledge and calmness.

After that season I was lucky enough to win her as a coach! Since then, I’m supplied with varied plans, good advice and above all very quick answers to questions each week. Training blocks are announced, the particular training focus is alway obvious and I always know my current position in training. Each session has a purpose as well as it fits into the big picture – no longer so-called “junk Miles” with Christine. In addition to the significant progress in training I also noticed that I do have more free time, because I do not have to take care of planning my training – also I am more concentrated on the training sessions themselves.
