Today we spoke with Ger Redmond - Professional triathlete, coach - and former prisoner
Ger has a unique, powerful and inspiring story to tell. In 2017 he decided to change his life; Ger is currently changing a generation for his family, having gone from prison to pro triathlon, whilst raising a family in Dublin.
His motto is no excuses and this is a huge part of his commitment and work with the athletes he coaches every day. Having completed Ironmans at the highest level himself...this is a story of grit, resilience and putting in the hard work.
We hear about how Gers' life turned upside down from a potential route to professional soccer at a young age - back to raising a family in his teens. We unpack why the late Kobe Bryant inspires Ger, we discuss training philosophies - and what a normal day looks like for Ger.
Ger shares his story with troubled youths, prisoners and athletes these days, about how circumstances don't have to dictate your future self, how powerful self belief is and life really is full of challenges for all of us.
