In this feature we highlight Masters Pentathlete Kevin Samuels, always hungry to maintain high performance.
What inspires you?
What inspires me is to be the best I can be in every thing in do so I can inspire the youth to achieve their goal and not let anyone distract them from that.
What's your specific athletic goal for this year?
Currently complete a pentathlon for indoor and win a national championship in indoor.
What is the most significant challenge you are facing in reaching your goal?
Finances. Lacking of income and bills it’s hard to keep the adequate training I need.
What is a technical aspect of your sport you are focusing on or have previously improved?
My conditioning has improved because my coach has me running 30-60 miles in off season and 15 miles a month during the season along with what I have to do at practice.
‘Be humble stay hungry and push through only you can stop you from achieving what you deserve and worked hard for..’
What is your approach to Recovery?
I work from the CryoPlace cryotherapy studio so I get compression therapy and cryo freeze therapy which enhances my recovery and reduces my muscle soreness and inflammation.
