Steve Howard, a 60-year old engineer, lives with his wife Debbie in Broussard, Louisiana (Near Lafayette, Lousiana). In 2008, weighing over 300 lbs., a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes prompted him to get serious about eating and living healthfully. By taking up cycling and adopting a mostly-vegan diet, he lost 115 pounds. The following year he became a Total Immersion Swimmer.
In 2012 Steve became certified as Total Immersion Swim Coach and also certified as a USAT Level 1 Triathlete Coach. As a result of weight loss and becoming an avid swimmer, cyclist and runner, he has regained his health and fitness. Both Debbie and Steve take part in a variety of swimming, cycling and running events. Steve and his wife Debbie share their knowledge and passion on swimming, cycling and running and health and wellness with friends and family.
