The sport of endurance training and triathlon changed Ruben's life starting in 2005.  Never having any training to run long distances, as a mere stroke of fate, he starting training for a marathon.  

In October of 2006, Ruben ran his first marathon of 26.2 miles.   He instantly got addicted and he didn't stop there... he wanted more.  In 2008, he started training for triathlons.  He went from not even knowing how to swim to completing the Ironman Triathlon in Lake Placed on July 24th, 2011.  An Ironman triathlon consists of a 2.4 miles swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile marathon.  All in one day.

Training for a triathlon takes long term planning... just like any other long term goal worth accomplishing.  There are many lessons one can learn from endurance training that applies to everyday life.  Thus, Ruben created Quality of Life Planning.  

TriumphLIFE is the platform to educate, empower and inspire others to plan and pursue their goals.  Although Ruben has spent most of his professional career working in the Financial and Real Estate Investment industries, he believes good health is everyone's greatest asset ... and quality of life is everyone's return on investment.    

Ruben created the TriumphLIFE Network to form a community to connect like-minded, socially "response-able" individuals and organizations committed to creating a positive impact for others in and around the world.  He is driven to empower people to plan for, pursue and live their ideal "quality of life".  

What is your ideal quality of Life?...

Ruben is currently back to training for the Long Beach Marathon on October 8th.  Follow his story on Instagram.
