Our monthly rolling triathlon coaching programmes are designed with one purpose in mind - to help you achieve your potential and reach your goals. Perhaps you've chosen your goal race for 2011 but finishing that first tri or crossing the line in Hawaii seems such a long way off - we'll help you get there.
We also offer 1-1 triathlon coaching sessions or days as spending quality time with your coach can prove invaluable in your quest for better performances. This could be in addition to your monthly coaching programme or it could be a stand alone session whatever your level.
Need a 20 week triathlon training program? We have long distance/Ironman, middle distance and olympic programs available for purchase online. Every program has a comprehensive 20 week schedule - we've done everything for you but the training!
In addition to your triathlon training schedule, each week we'll also send you an exclusive triathlon e-mail with reminders of activities that you need to complete (in addition to your training), cutting edge training tips or valuable check lists such as the pre race checklist to make sure you don't forget any kit on race morning.
Take your training to the next level... step up to a TheTriathlonCoach.com bootcamp! We run half day TriFaster Workshops - great for perfecting one aspect of your triathlon performance in just a morning, or perhaps you'd prefer to develop all three aspects of your performance on our Triathlon Training Weekends.
Finally, for the more adventurous join us on our Long Distance Training Camps for overseas triathlon training in the sun - these camps are designed to allow you to fully focus on preparation for your key race and leave no stone unturned in the search for success.
If you asked us the direct question about whether we could help you achieve your goals you'd probably expect a fairly biased response. So rather than taking our word for it why not read about what some of our happy athletes have to say by reading our case studies.

You may have read previous blog posts where I have talked about the 3 zone approach to training.
The zones are separated by two significant points
Lactate threshold (approx 80% max. HR)
Lactate turn point (approx 90% max. HR)
As we approach the start of the season the training emphasis should move from one focussed on the zones either side of these points to the bit in the middle – the threshold zone.
You could call this location “the sweet spot”. After a winter of building a stronger foundation and attending to your weaknesses your fitness will accelerate very quickly if you spend 6-8 weeks emphasising this aspect of your physiology.
In the next 4 weeks I’m going to be providing you with some examples of sessions that you can do in all 3 sports but first I’m going to lay out some fundamental beliefs about training for this period. (more…)
In this final article I’m going to briefly cover some strategies for achieving your race weight.
Before I do that, lets recap on a few things
