is a true “endurance geek”. His passion for triathlons
and helping others achieve their athletic goals was a
strong influence in the establishment of his own
business in 2007. The business is appropriately called
Endurance Geeks and their services include everything
from metabolic testing to coaching multi-sport athletes.
Barry has been competing in triathlons of all distances
for seven years and this includes three Ironman
finishes. Although training and racing in triathlons is
a passion, his true enjoyment is educating and assisting
fellow athletes improve in the sport. He has a strong
foundation in the field of fitness and holds a BS degree
in Exercise Science, a MS degree in Occupational Safety
and Health, and is a Certified Personal Trainer through
the American Council on Exercise.
When not immersed in
training or racing, Barry makes family a top priority.
He has a very supportive wife and two daughters whom are
active in swim and dance. A triathlon is a family event
for the Baird household, as you will often find his wife
and daughters at races holding signs near the finish
line that say, “Go Daddy”!
