Each person is different and each has their own talent. My job is using my knowledge and experience to find this talent and to bring it to the surface. I want my athletes to achieve better results, not only in sports but in every moment of their lives.

Knowing from the early 90s the success that Brett Sutton has with his athletes, it has been a privilege learning his training principles and watching in person at camp the methodology and passion that he passes on to his campers. It is obvious that such knowledge targeted with an individual approach for each athlete, why this is the most successful team with the best training system!

Vassilis Krommidas Coach

 

A former national swimmer, Vassilis switched to triathlon as a 20 year-old. At the age of 21 he finished his first Iron distance at Roth in 9:27 and the following year he improved his time by over an hour finishing in 8:27. From there he started he started a decades long professional athletic career, while also taking time to study Physical Education and Sport’s Science; achieving the highest professional certification of Greece.

A few of his athletic highlights include representing Greece as a two time Olympian (Sydney & Athens), while also holding for 21 years the course record for M18-24 (1994-2015). Vassilis is also the proud winner of 16 national titles.

In his coaching career has trained athletes of all levels and abilities, training more than 900 athletes in endurance sports from beginners through to Olympians.

 

  • He was Head Coach in two National teams (Greece and Cyprus).
  • Coached athlete who took part in the Olympic Games (Beijing).
  • Coached athletes who took medals at ITU Elite, AG European Cups and World Championships.
  • More than 70 National titles in Greece and Cyprus (Elite and Juniors).
  • 30 Balkan Championship medals (Elite and Juniors).
  • Multiple 70.3, Ironman and XTerra World Championship qualifiers.

 

I look forward to helping you to achieve your goals.

I got into triathlon three and a half years ago the same way thousands of triathletes enter the sport: I tried out a sprint race. Nevertheless, that single event was not the reason for the big change in my lifestyle that followed shortly after,Vassilis Kromidas was. Vassilis is a truly unique coach not only because of his invaluable experience as an elite athlete but mainly due to his charismatic personality. He is characterised by his ‘powerful calmness’ that somehow triggers the driving force to strive for the best in all of his athletes. Having Vassilis as a coach means not only discovering new personal limits as an athlete, but also learning to be patient when trying to break them.

National Titles (Coach)

Vassilis Krommidas has been my coach for more than seven years. With his help, I have been able to train consistently and progressively, whilst staying free from injury. This has led to the opportunity for me to take part in the Ironman World Championship, six Ironman 70.3 World Championships, as well as multiple ITU World Championships. I have achieved significantly more than I ever thought possible, especially whilst juggling a busy work schedule and family responsibilities. Vassilis understands implicitly the competing priorities in my life, he is always available and responds promptly to my questions, quickly and effectively adapting my training schedule as necessary. Over the years Vassilis has become much more than my triathlon coach, a very close friend.

There is no secret to success. With Vasilis Krommidas for the last 15 years as a coach we managed to participate in more than 500 international and domestic races. Always on the top 10 as an age grouper in all the National Championships in my country in sprint triathlons, Cyclocross, Time Trials, Team Time Trials, MTB, Endurance, Circuits and multi stages racing.

Only a few years ago it was inconceivable for me that I would participate in any athletic competition, much less in a triathlon. Vasilis has introduced me to this sport. He has been coaching me ever since consistenly, keeping me fit and injury free while managing work schedule with substantial travelling and family, keeping the fun while constantly improving. He is also a vast source of information, knowledge as well as historical details about triathlon.

Why Trisutto Hell Camp?
