What is a personalized training plan?
It is the highest level of triathlon coaching service available. An annual training plan (ATP) and customized workouts are designed for each individual athlete with their specific goals in mind. The workouts are developed bi-weekly and uploaded to the athlete’s training account which is provided by the coach. This periodized training schedule is both flexible and designed around the athlete’s personal lifestyle. It is very detailed and allows progression of training to maximize athlete potential.
Who is a Personalize Coaching Plan for?
Personalized Triathlon Coaching is for any triathlete who has the desire to improve or achieve, and the discipline to track their training. Our coaches have worked with beginner athletes as well as elite level world champions! We have helped athletes obtain podium spots at local races and podium spots at International Triathlon Union events as members of Team USA! Our athletes have crossed the finish line at their first sprint triathlon as well as at the Ironman 70.3 and Kona 140.6 World Championship races!
How does the training plan work?
Athletes who purchase a personal coaching plan receive a premium Training Peaks account and are expected to keep it up to date by regularly marking workouts as complete or synching their data and writing comments about their workouts. Without this information, the coach cannot accurately monitor volume and progression or build an appropriate plan. Athletes who do not complete this information at least once weekly risk being dropped as a client by the coach. Communication is a big part of training success, so expect to communicate with your coach through your training peaks workouts or by sending an email each week.
Do I need a heart rate monitor?
Yes, you will need to use a heart rate monitor for training. In order to see all training data (mileage, heart rate, power, speed, time, etc) it is important to have one that syncs automatically to your Training Peaks account and uploads the results of your training. Our favorite is the Garmin 935XT model. This, or most Garmin devices and some other brands, will upload all the data the coach needs. The more information the coach gets from your workouts, the better the training will be for you!
How long is a training plan?
Most athletes remain on a training plan year-round. The plans are periodized based on where the athlete is in their training cycle – base, build, peak, race or transition (off-season with a strength emphasis). Some athletes purchase a plan just to prepare for their “A” race of the season. The minimum initial purchase is 3 months, then you can pay monthly.
What is included in the training plan?
Personalized training plans are limited in availability for quality assurance. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about starting your plan.
