You might ask, “what’s Included in Full Service Triathlon Coaching”?
I get to know each new athlete through an initial athlete questionnaire, email exchanges, and an initial phone conversation.
I develop a detailed plan that outlines time, volume, and intensity benchmarks for each day / week in a cycle. The season plan will be shared with an athlete and will provide the athlete with information on how we intend to build fitness throughout the season.
Heart Rate Testing
I constantly monitor each athlete’s heart rate data during training and racing. Initially, I set specific training zones based on heart rate testing, and then I update those zones as necessary throughout the season.
These plans are specific to the athlete’s sweat rate and caloric needs for all race distances. After executing a “sweat test”, I analyze the results to determine accurate hydration needs. The fueling plans include specific instructions for exactly what to eat and drink on race day.
I give specific pacing instructions for every race on an athlete’s schedule. All pacing plans are detailed and are based off heart rate, pace, and power (if applicable). I leave nothing to chance on race day!
There are no restrictions placed on the amount or type of communication that an athlete may have with me. Training scheduled will be changed at any time at the athlete’s request.
Feedback is given on any training session where instruction / encouragement is warranted or when the athlete asks a question. I analyze each and every race. Feedback typically comes in the form of an email response, a voice recording, or a phone conversation.
An athlete may send a video or may set up an appointment for me to take video and give analysis in any of the three disciplines. Swim video analysis occurs the most frequently.
I give all my athletes access to our library of training / racing / nutrition documents and also a variety of instructional videos covering swim drills / technique, run mechanics, strength movements, and more.
All athletes are given a profile on ajbcoaching.com where they can share pictures, race schedules and results. I also utilize automatic billing through the website. Coaching payments can be set to recur ever 1 week, 2 weeks, or 4 weeks.
