I'm super happy to offer Private and Semi-Private triathlon coaching for adults in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
For 8 years, I competed in triathlon races, and raced in all the distances, from the Sprint to the full ironman. In my final year of racing, I competed in the EPIC IRON in Dartmouth, NS, finishing first in my age group and qualified to represent Canada at the World Long Course Championships.
I started out with no experience, used a mountain bike with flat pedals for my first triathlon race, no cycling gear except a helmet, but I had a desire to learn and get better.
I am a true believe that when you allow your mind to open up, believe in yourself, and stay dedicated to your dreams, your body is capable of doing anything that you want it to do.
Power doesn't come from the body, it comes from the mind!
If you are new to triathlons, or maybe have some experience but looking to take on a bigger challenge, I could be the right coach for you. All new clients can book a FREE 30-MIN CONSULT. To learn more, read on.
Here's what I offer:
- beginner to intermediate triathlon coaching
- competitive and non-competitive coaching
- single coaching sessions
- progression programs
- training programs
Private lessons are great for individuals who desire 1-on-1 instruction. Each lesson is 60 minutes with options to extend to 1.5 or 2 hour lessons (additional fees apply).
Semi-private lessons are great for adults who learn well with a partner or friend. It's also more social and great for people who can learn by watching others.
Each lesson is 60 minutes with options to extend to 1.5 or 2 hour lessons (additional fees apply).
There is a maximum of two adults required for triathlon semi-private coaching.
This program consists of 600+ minutes of coaching. It is divided up into 10 x 60 minute lessons. Depending on the goals, skills, and fitness levels of the clients, we can double up the sessions to make for larger lessons.
The program is available for both privates and semi-privates.
Within the program, I have 3 major areas of concentration. Clients who want semi-private lessons must all have the same concentration.
LEARN TO TRI: This is a 10=week program for beginners only. Clients need NO prior experience and do not need to have a high fitness level. Both fitness and skill is built during this program.
INCREASE FITNESS: This program is most excellent for people looking to increase their triathlon fitness level. Whether you just want to get faster for personal pleasure or compete in a race, this is an excellent program for upping your game.
INCREASE SKILL LEVEL: This is suitable for clients who already have triathlon experience but maybe have weak areas, such as climbing hills on the bike, slow transitions, or struggle with the run. Lessons are catered more around these weak areas and practiced until the skill level has increased and the triathlete gains more confidence.
Training programs are a great way to stay motivated to achieve a certain goal. You can follow them on your own or hire me in combination with the plan. I develop personalized training programs to match the goal of the client. Fees start at $100, and depending on how much detail and length of the program the client wants, will depend on how long it takes me to designed the program and the final cost.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING SESSIONS
What I teach during a session will depend a great deal on what the participant(s) already knows how to do. With that said, the first session will always begin with an assessment of skills and fitness in order to identity strengths and weaknesses.
