Coaching is both science and art. We are all read meat computers and for the most part our bodies respond to the training given. However training is complicated, not everyone has the same genetics, background in sports or importantly the same life circumstances.
Each athlete is an individual and thus may need to start with different focuses. Planning takes time, and an understanding of matching your desired outcomes with your life circumstances. Not to mention the adjustments based on feedback, illness, injury that require knowledge and time in the trenches experience.
And coaching is much more than writing plans, and adjusting them. Coaching works best when the relationship is built on trust and transparency. And one thing we have found true over the years is when athletes answer this question with a committed yes. Will you make the coaching worthwhile for you?
We offer a coaching options to fit most budgets and needs.
With 1:1 coaching we work with our athletes to lay out the steps required to achieve the stated goals. With an understanding that real performance takes time.
At Endurance Specific we understand that data is important, but so is the written feedback. When it comes our athletes logs we are somewhat anal about the written word feedback because we understand that data on tells part of the story.
Due to the very involved nature of this coaching relationship we can only take on a small number of athletes per year.
1:1 Coaching by application
This is our more budget friendly coaching. You get weekly feedback / accountability via Training Peaks and we go over and respond to your “post activity comments and uploads” and give feedback and make potential adjustments to the plan.
This option is either:
$495USD for TRISPECIFIC MEMBERSHIP / year + $100/mth USD (coaching accountability) / 4 month minimum.
$1395USD upfront for the year (saves $300USD)
A cost-effective customized training plan.
Why customized and not simply “buy our TS Training plans”? Well we have sold our plans for years and while they work and work exceptionally well when followed. However, the biggest issue is we lay out our best plans but that doesn’t always fit your life circumstances or where you are starting from. Thus while the framework of the plan is great, the application and thus the execution of the plan may not be great and thus won’t give you the best possible outcome.
When the plan is changed. It’s not the plan!
These custom training plans are perfect if you’re new to endurance training, or you simply don’t have the time nor the expertise to build out your plan. The biggest problem athletes face when building out their own plans is FOMO. You build out a plan and then an article comes out with this must do session. So you add that in, then you read something else and are like hmmm, maybe I need that too. Now you have a plan of confusion and instead of having something based on solid fundamental and that works within the confines of your life ie. a straight line from A to B, you are zig zagging your way or worse chasing your tail.
Our TriSpecific Customized plans avoid that.
If you’re new to training, or you don’t have the time or expertise to lay out your own plan, the 20-week event specific plan is for you.
How does it work and what do you get?
After you hit the ‘sign up’ button you’ll be directed to fill out a pretty in depth questionnaire that will give us all the details we need to build out the best possible customized plan for you. Once we have all those answers + you have attached us as your coach within Training Peaks (if you don’t have an account we can help you set one up).
If there is any further information we need. We will gather that via email communication.
Once we have built out the plan, we will get you to check it over to make sure that fit’s, make any adjustments and set you up in the membership area where you’ll have all the supporting documents you’ll need.

It is well known that success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. And while we’ve seen some pretty impressive results with our previous TriSpecific Training Plans and our 20 week customized training plans. We know that when we can work with athletes over a longer period we have the ability to steer the ship, make course corrections and thus keep a much straighter line from A to B.
With the TS yearly membership, your training year is customized to you. To your life circumstances, events, your strengths and weaknesses and where you are starting from.
Once you sign up, we start out with getting you to fill in our in depth athlete questionnaire so we have all the details we need to get you started. We then typically break up your year into four quarters or where you have specific events or adventures.
Each quarter or specified time frame we will have a debrief and a discussion on where we need to focus on the next part of your development. Once we square that away, we build out that next phase.
You also get access to:
