Choosing a Triathlon Coach
Choosing a triathlon coach is a BIG decision. How many other people do you share your hopes, dreams, and desires with? Not many. It's a close and trusting relationship. When you invest that much time, money, and emotional and physical energy into a project, you need to have the right partner coach.
A few items to consider when choosing a coach:
*Does that coach have a track record of having 'skin in the game' with their athletes? We recommend talking with their current and former athletes to get an overview of their coaching style.
*How well does your coach communicate, how often, through what platform and what are their expectations of communication with their athletes? Communication in any relationship is a make-or-break factor.
*How many athletes does your coach manage? Are they managing dozens and dozens of people? If so, where do you and your goals fit into the priority list for this coach?
*Has your coached raced your distance? Have they lived and learned all the nuances of your sport? Are they a student of the sport or are they looking to make a few bucks from taking a weekend certification course?
*Take your time deciding on a coach. It will be the difference between loving and succeeding at the sport or souring the entire experience.
