Choosing a Triathlon Trainer & Coach
Choosing a triathlon trainer is a BIG decision. How many other people do you share your hopes, dreams and desires to? 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 correct trainer.
A few items to consider when evaluating a triathlon trainer:
*Does that trainer 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 training style.
*How well does your trainer 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 trainer manage? Are they managing dozens and dozens of people? If so, where do you and your goals fit into the priority list?
*Has your trainer 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 triathlon trainer. It will be the difference between loving and succeeding at the sport or souring the entire experience.
