Triathlon Coaching Services

Many athletes believe that they are “not good enough” or ready to work with a coach. I work with athletes of all athletic abilities and backgrounds. Whether your goal is to complete your first sprint tri or PR at your next Ironman then I can help you reach your goals. Coaching can be a costly investment. I understand this and offer several levels of coaching that will meet your desired needs.

Customized Training Plans

Pre-Built Plans

Note: I strongly encourage athletes to choose the customized, individualized coaching plans offered above because I believe they are the most effective plans to help you reach your goals faster and stronger. However, not everyone can afford coaching and thus pre-built customized plans are a good alternative.

12-Week Plans Pre-Built Training Plans – $75

– Available for:

** Sprint distance triathlon

** Olympic distance triathlon

** Half-Ironman distance triathlon

A 12-week plan will adequately prepare you for your goal race by improving your overall fitness through building endurance, strength, power, and speed via the scientifically sound periodization method.

What my pre-built plans include:

– A structured, periodized plan to get you ready for your goal race

– Each workout will include heart rate zones/power zones/rate of perceived effort

– Handout on how to conduct a heart test/power test and email support to determine zones

– Details on warm-up and main set for each workout

– Suggested strength training

– Suggested training, pre- and post- workout and race nutrition

– Most workouts (depending on the race distance) will not exceed 90 minutes during the weeks and range from 2-4 hours on the weekend (Half-Iron distance has the most training time commitment)

Note: In my personal and professional opinion, I do not believe that pre-built plans should be used for the Ironman distance due to the nature of the time commitment involved to train for 140.6 miles. Ironman racing is a timely and costly investment and should be monitored by a coach to ensure a good balance in sport and life.
