Our coaching philosophy is simple, the methods are not.
In most things in life there is either a massive overreaction to things or a massive under-reaction to things. In the case of triathlon coaching and training. It’s typically a massive overreaction to the volume or the gadgets needed to achieve awesome results.
We see too many injured, sick and under-performing athletes all from doing excessive amounts of training or under recovering. Training that is haphazard or continually being changed around for no real reason. Training that has no real purpose.
That time is over.
No more chasing your tail, no more second guessing. We’re going to accelerate you towards the performances of your dreams, while not destroying your health in the process. This is very important to us.
Along the way, we’ll teach you the why’s, how’s of the training methods so you become empowered and get so much more out of your training time. We all love to learn- so you won’t be seeing an generic “go for an easy run” unless it’s absolutely deliberate, that’s doesn’t mean there is no easy running- it just means the session notes are much more in-depth than that.
Working on a monthly basis, you’ll have your training program specifically tailored to you. This means we look at your life circumstances, your training age, your goals, your strengths and weaknesses, injuries (injury history) and then work a plan that takes you step by step to your intended goals.
This is not some cookie-cutter program.
To be brutally honest with you. There are no secret sessions. Sorry to let you down… but pretty much every training session thats ever going to be written has been written. While some sessions are obviously better than others- it’s not so much about the session, but more importantly HOW the session is placed and the impact it has on you hormonally and HOW you implement the training.
Coaches and athletes worry to much about muscle recovery and pay little attention to hormonal balance. Muscles recover much quicker than an over worked aerobic system.
Each session becomes YOUR session: The systems we train to get the training effect relate to one another. They’re all interlinked. And each of these systems is emphasised on your needs, strengths, weaknesses, races and time in sport. No more guesswork for you- just a direct path to your goals.
The plans are tailored to your work, family and social life. Each month, your training plan gets updated based on your week-to-week progress and where you’re in relation to your goals or goal race. We may manipulate your daily nutrition or any other factor that is going to help you and through, the Training Peaks app (were we write your programs), text messages, emails, and Skype support. Our TS Coached athletes also get access to our TS LIFE member area and frankly kick ass community.
We will accelerate your progress.
