Andrej is Croatia's most successful long distance triathlete with 3 international ironman distance wins, 3 podiums at Ironman races and ETU European Champion title. He started training late, at age of 23, but soon fell in love with the sport and decided to give his best to make a living out of it.
Description of Andrej Vistica
What have you achieved in your coaching career?
I've coached Marin Koceic to 8:32h iron-distance PB (Challenge Roth 2013). In the same year he placed 5th overall at Challenge Vichy and recently he won his age group at Ironman Wales (2017). All this while working as a manager in Ericsson Croatia. Romano Scuric went 9:37h at Challenge Venice, improving his PB by 1:30h in one year. Salvatore Alioto had multiple PBs while also maintaining very tasking work schedule. Bojan Stojnic placed 3rd overall at Balatonman in his first iron-distance race. Daniel Filic finished his first Ironman in Italy with a time of 10:52 after 4 months of training under my guidance.
Why do you work with Trisutto?
I owe all of my results to Trisutto coaches. I approached Brett when I was a kid with unrealistic dream and he connected me with Joseph Spindler who coached me for the majority of my racing career. All I know about the sport I learned from them. I'm passionate about coaching and I want to become the best coach I can be. In my opinion, there's no better place to learn and develop as a coach.
Andrej Vistica does not have any active camps at the moment
Since June 2017 I have been in contact with Andrej the trainer. He is very easygoing, discreet and all round great person. With his knowledge and experience he helped me realize my goal at the Ironman challenge. I wish I had started training with him earlier than I did.
He is always very specific in training sessions and analysis, whilst being very communicative and always on call.
I look forward to further working in conjunction with him in the oncoming season.
Troughout many years,aside from being a professional triathlete, Andrej has been alot of things to me; training buddy, friend, coach and great role model. First off we started as training buddies in the same triathlon club, but Andrej's will, determination and love for triathlon took him on another level. As andrej progressed as a professional triathlete, he acquired great experience and knowledge for the sport, so i decided to try my luck with him as my coach. That decision was one i never regreted, nor will i ever regret. His commitment as a coach was far more better than mine as an athlete sometimes was, which really helped and motivated me more when i needed it the most. Having said so, sometimes it felt as he knew my body limits even beter than me myself. 3 Full distance triathlons and many other short course races done under Andrej's guidance with a smile on my face (especially my full distance PB 9:37h).
I can only say that my results could have been better only if my engagement was better and more serious, would recommend andrej alway without hesitation. Good luck
After several years of social gatherings and competitions, I decided to engage Andrei as a trainer.
Many people will question if someone younger with not so many years of experience in triathlon as a sport can be a coach for me after I invested so many years in the triathlon.
I've been in the triathlon since 2000, but the real chance for systematic work started when I decided to go to the "long triathlon" in 2012.
Andrej was already in a long triathlon, had a serious approach, and most importantly, he was in the true sense of the word Man.
The training plan was systematic, he liked to learn and during our 5 years of collaboration he has evaluated in accepting new technologies, functioning of the human body including feedback, and all that to achieve better result.
Every single coach does this in a different way, but at the end, the only thing which count is the result and satisfaction of me as a user of his services.
In addition, my results confirm that I am on the right track and that Andrej as a coach knows very well how our plans come true, and all of that on mutual satisfaction.
