While growing up in a household with 4 older brothers and having constant friendly (or not so friendly)sibling rivalry, Terri developed a competitive streak a mile long. Her love for sports and an active lifestyle spilled over into her adult life. Years after her last match as a competitive wrestler and raising 5 children, Terri decided she wanted to get back onto the podium. But this time she wanted to focus on endurance sports. So the obvious answer was to become a triathlete. Which is exactly what she did.
In 2015, Terri competed in her first triathlon and was hooked. Since that time she has used her tenacity and work ethic to build upon her level of fitness. In 2017 Hayworth earned a spot on Team USA where she competed at the World Championships in Sprint Distance Duathlon.
Don't let her small stature fool you, this coach brings a whole new realm of possibilities to the mantra "go big or go home" case in point, most people work their way up to a full 26.2 mile marathon. Not Terri, she started out BIG by completing one of the toughest runs first. The Battan Death March as it is known, fell victim to Terri in 2017 as she conquered the heat, sand, and humidity of the memorial run at the White Sands Missle Range in New Mexico.
In the 2016 USA Triathlon rankings Terri was ranked 11th in the SouthMidwest region in Duathlon and number one in the state of Oklahoma. Her experience as a Sherpa as well as training, racing, and being a student of multisport and nutrition since 2014 leaves Terri with much knowledge and wisdom to offer. She is currently working to earn her Triathlon Coaching Certificate from the International Triathlon Coaches Association and is looking forward to working with endurance minded individuals at Essex Functional Fitness
