Anna Hertel Triathlete and Writer


Welcome to my site! It is a place to share all my experiences in Triathlon and publicly document my Writing Journey. 

I’m Anna Hertel and I primarily swim, bike, run, lift weights and am a Master Student at California College of the Arts and I own a business INTENTIO Fitness Coaching. That's a lot. I know!  

My website is committed to Balance.

bal·ance : condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.

Balance is really hard to find when you want to pursue excellence. For the last couple of years I did a lot of research on time management and looked at others and how they created balance. It only confused me that much more.

Some of the questions I keep asking are:

  • How do people find balance in their life?

  • How do people juggLE different conflicting responsibilities?

  • What techniques do people use?

  • How do people not loose their mind?


I had to find these answers for myself to focus on the work I must do to be the best I can be in the sport of triathlon and pursue my dream of publishing a book.

I ALSO invite you to follow my journey!

You will receive an email with updates. Most of my posts will be about how I establish balance in my daily quest to be the best Triathlete I can be, while I pursue my studies and maintain all other moving parts in my life. 

My goal is to leave you feeling inspired, empowered and give you useful knowledge to apply to your life.
