Whilst 1:1 coaching is of course excellent. For day to day training it is in the most part impractical. Online coaching allows us to build a program around your life as an individual building in the necessary flexibility that leads to consistency and ultimately success.
The Planning Process
As we get started together, we’ll have a chat to learn more about you including your short, medium, and long-term goals as well as your weekly timetable, which is essential to tailoring the training to you.
Your training plan is extremely personalised taking into account your performance ability, history in each sport, recent training data, target races, your environment, and even your genetics (if you choose to upload a genome file into the TriDot platform). Your training will include a mix of sessions and varying intensity that provides the perfect balance of training stress and recovery to optimize your improvement.
Having coached 100s of athletes to international age group level with many attaining Top 10 and podium positions across all distances, we have developed a coaching approach that works for real people.
Your coach will regularly communicate with you via email, phone, and messaging in the TriDot app so that you have the motivation, knowledge, and guidance you need to be successful. You can expect your coach to provide tangible knowledge like training tips, gear selection, transition tricks, nutrition guidance, goal setting, event selection, race pacing/tactics, recovery tips, and form analysis. Beyond that guidance, your coach will provide accountability, motivation, mental and emotional support, and work with you to establish proper life balance.
Our Weekly Rhythm
Your training will be regularly and dynamically adjusted so that you're ready for the week ahead taking into account all of your personal goals, circumstances, and performance in the previous weeks.
This is accessible in your Premium TriDot account which we can both securely access and edit at any point. During the week you update your actual training and results. Each weekend we review your progress, then update your sessions for the following week. You can view and edit your plan either via an online portal or on your Smartphone as a free download or app. For more on TriDot please check out tridot.com.
Many remote coaching programs limit the contact time with the coach. We believe this to be exactly that, limiting. We are available via email and mobile to answer any questions that you might have about your training program and enriching your experience as a triathlete.
