My name is Aaron Hutchinson and I have been a Triathlete since 1995. I have completed 8 Full Ironman’s with finishes in 2010 Vineman, 2011 Cozumel, 2012 Penticton, Canada, 2013 Whistler, Canada, 2014 Cozumel, 2015 Cabo Mexico, 2016 Vineman Santa Rosa, and 2017 Ironman Santa Rosa. I founded Body On The Move in 2011 as my passion for health and wellness began to also incorporate race coordination. I’ve competed in over 100 races, coordinated over 50 events since 2010 (5K, 10K, 1/2 Marathons, Full Marathons, Triathlons Sprint, Olympic, and Full Distances) as well as Road bike and Mountain bike events.
I am here to share with you my passion and the benefits of making a fitness lifestyle change and the feeling you experience by making that choice both short term and long-term. As well as, how this permeates throughout other aspects of your life whether it is simply feeling great, having a positive attitude toward self and others, as well as everything else that one may come into contact with on a daily basis.
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” -Wayne Dyer
Through my life experiences, I am here to share with you how amazing it feels to inspire, give back, and create a sense of community. I do this by helping people train to achieve their goals, set new ones, and inspire others as well in the process. With a strong sense of conviction, it is known that my experiences provide an opportunity to move others and ultimately assist in helping create and tell their own stories. It is through reminders that we, as human beings, have ideas and concepts about one self and situations mirrored. I always like to remind people we are all looking for a source of inspiration and feeling like we are part of something that is maybe bigger than ourselves. I will elaborate more on this later; however I would now like to give you a peak at my training plan and how I arrived there.
My daily training begins with Yoga, of which I began practicing in December, 2010. I continue to a core workout, biking, swimming, and then running in that order. The daily routine is always yoga, of which I then incorporate the remaining aspects of my training based on my weekly obligations to my family and work.
With the expecting arrival of my daughter’s birth in 1996, I began my fitness endeavor in 1995. My dad passed away at the age of 40 because of a rare hereditary defect in the heart called Wolf Parkinson Syndrome. It was an electrical defect in the heart not a mechanical one. I was 25 at the time and I did not want my daughter growing up without her father. My dad’s birthday is on the same day as mine July 23rd and by no coincidence I completed my first full Ironman on July 30th, 2010. This was one week from my 40th birthday and 8 days removed from the anniversary of my father’s death. Two profound things occurred that race day in 2010. As I crossed the finish line I realized I did not need to run from death
anymore and I was going to be ok. With that feeling, the doors opened up and I felt like I could literally do
anything and this became my “Day One” of an incredible journey that continues to this day.
My journey or “Walk”, is similar in some ways to another’s, but yet, sometimes pales in comparison. My journey or walk has been a spiritual one that involves my trust in God and what he has planned for me. Other people in my life who have inspired me besides my daughter and my dad include my mom who was born with a birth defect. She never made any excuses or never backed down from a lifelong challenge. I often remind her she is with me every training day and every race no matter where I am on the planet.
My intent is to share and hopefully inspire others to reach for life; for there are no limits but the limits we self impose upon ourselves. Life is about creating “WOW” moments; the moments that allow you to look back on, in reflection, with pride and assurance that you’re making a difference in people’s lives. Hopefully inspiring others to do the same and pay it forward. No one is perfect, we are perfectly imperfect. It is never too late to make a lifestyle change and start taking steps that will lead to treating yourself better through nutrition, regular exercise, and spiritual practice. Remember people are watching and always looking for inspiration. Think of your life in 20 years, what will your legacy be? How might your choices affect your family, friends, and people you don’t even know yet in a positive life changing way? You are the “author” of your own story. How will you write your own novel?
