A triathlon is a big dream for most recreational athletes, you could even say—their biggest dream. When you set this goal for yourself, you typically are experienced in running or cycling and now you're looking to get into swimming as well.

Do these triathlon coaching challenges sound familiar?

Gear overload: Road bike, TT bike, trisuit, wetsuit? What do I need anyway?!
Freestyle swimming turns into survival mode in the open water
No confidence in open water ("I can't see in this stuff! Am I swimming straight?")
Heavy legs when you start your run after cycling
What are those triathlon race rules about? Drafting? Wetsuits allowed? Littering?
Managing nutrition and hydration in all 3 disciplines of the triathlon
"How should I train for a triathlon?"
"What do I need to know when preparing for a triathlon race?"

I feel you, because my first foray into triathlon was riddled with slip-ups and failures as well. I want to spare you that experience and provide you with professional triathlon coaching as your one-stop shop for all things swimming, biking and running.

This is what you'll get:

Motivation to train regularly
A clear path towards your goal, no matter if you're just starting out on a sprint triathlon or if you're aiming for a long distance / Ironman race
Proper technique for all 3 sports (swimming, cycling and running) that you'll remember for your whole life
A varied training program full of fun and challenging workouts that will get you in perfect shape for your race and avoid injuries along the way

What can you expect from a Triathlon Coaching?

1. Complex training simplified

Triathlon is a very complex sport. 3 or even 4 disciplines (you read that right, don't forget performance training!) have to be combined and balanced. Training load management can get tricky sometimes, but you won't need to worry about that. You'll receive a personal training plan in a weekly rhythm that considers your individual circumstances (job stress, amount of sleep, etc.).

2. Long-term planning for your Triathlon Coaching goal

For a strong middle distance triathlon finish (think Ironman 70.3), you should train between 6 and 8 months. All the periodisation and priorities will be set by your Triathlon Coach. You've got enough balls in the air just managing your job, free time and social activities, you don't need a sports science degree just to create a training plan that ends up failing you. Let a pro handle the planning and just enjoy your triathlon training and races!

3. Constant feedback on your progress—confidence on race morning

In Triathlon Coaching, the most important thing is making sure that you're on track from the very beginning. Base training deficits can't be magically cured later in the season, and that is why we'll check your progress constantly right from the start and we'll take corrective measures if necessary. That way I'll make sure you're confident and ready for your day X.

4. Technique and form that you'll remember your whole life

Endurance sports is about more than just a strong engine and tirelessly working muscles, it's also about technique: Freestyle technique, running from, but also pedaling technique on the bike. I'll teach you all you need to know in a way you'll remember forever and you can draw on whenever you need to, even deep in the red zone. That is what triathlon coaching is all about.
