We personalize triathlon and run training plans to meet the different needs of our clients including: IRONMAN triathlon, Ironman 70.3 Triathlon, Olympic & Sprint Triathlon and Running races from 5k to marathons. Beginners training plans start out at less weekly training volume and have fewer and shorted intervals than the experienced athlete training plans. Training plans are personalized around lifestyle, family life and work commitments
If you have more than one workout scheduled in your training plan, it does not matter which order you do the workouts in. You can also separate them into different parts of the day if that makes more sense for your schedule. The one exception is triathlon BRICK workouts (bike immediately followed by run workout). The run should start within 5-10 minutes of finishing the bike in order to simulate a bike to run transition in a triathlon.
The minimum stated physical requirements will vary by race distance, plan duration and athlete level. Following on from Q&A you will need to complete we will determine minimal requirements based on your goal and prior fitness levels. We recommend that you consult with your physician prior to starting any exercise program.
Yes, we personalize your training plan around other commitments outside your training and recognize you will miss some of the workouts. We will adapt training plan and provide guidance, as you go to accommodate missed sessions. As a rule of thumb, if you can complete 70-85% of the given workouts per week, then you’ll be successful.
We create field test to determine your training zones for swim, bike and run. If done correctly, the results should be a good approximation of what you would learn from a metabolic test in the lab. We use training intensity zones in our training plans in order to differentiate the levels of intensity that you should maintain during each part of a workout. Training at different levels of intensity stimulates different training responses and is an effective tool to maximize training time.
