Focus is ever-changing when following a moving target. Excellence is a moving target.”

THE MATRIX

Unless you're a full time professional, or a member of a National Team, you have a life that probably includes at least forty-hours a week at work, additional family commitments before and after that, and a whole list of priorities that are not about training. And even though having a great experience in the sport can be a priority, many triathletes train in ways that hinder the chance of success in all of areas of their life! But a coach can help you create a balance that increases the chance of success in every single area of your life, including in your races!

Do you have a job? Likely yes! Do you have a family? Possibly, and even if you don’t there are likely lots of people in your life that you devote a lot of time to. How will you mesh your goals in triathlons with these pieces that are also very important to keep healthy?

This is the matrix of knowledge that great coaching can bring to your training. It took me fifteen years of competing in triathlons as my life evolved from an individual athlete to a husband to a father and then to being a business owner to really learn how to fulfill my dreams in all of those areas at the same time.

This is the matrix of knowledge that great coaching can bring to your training. It begins by assessing the amount of training that is realistic for you then building a training program around that to match the matrix of your life, your commitments, your goal races and your fitness. It’s a tall order, but it’s also something that is easy to accomplish with the guidance of someone who has been in the trenches and learned what can never be taught in a book!

A coach can help you navigate the matrix called life:

  1. Looking at triathlon and life as a whole, not two separate entities that must compliment each other.
  2. Building a training program that is focused yet realistic.
  3. Guiding you and educating you from a knowledge and experience base that has been learned over time so that you can maximize your training time.

These are the perspectives that great coaching will bring. Why take six years to gain them when you can do have them at your fingertips today?
