Find A Coach
So you want a coach?
Many people who are using coachme have previously tried working with USAT and other high level coaches out there. There are many good coaches, who for $$$ per month, motivate and work well with athletes who are for instance, looking for a Kona slot, but let's face it, for most of us, that is not why we are in Triathlon.
We are looking for an improvement over last year's race, or to improve against our gym buddies, or to simply finish running not walking, standing not crawling, smiling for our photos. We put as much effort into this sport as everyone else does, we simply have to work with the disposable time we have. Sure the Pro's can put in 30 hours of training per week, as we could with the financial situation to do so right? many of us have families, mortgages, bosses and real world commitments that allow us to sneak 4-12 hours per week into Triathlon.
So, how can we improve?
Take a look around at the next race you are at. Most of the athletes you see who will end up in the top 10-15% of our age groups have been around longer, have built the knowledge, found the short cuts and know what specific details of training to pay attention to. Most of these athletes started at the same place we are at, some may be more naturally gifted with the ability to run like a race horse, or swim like a fish, but most have simply worked hard to gain the knowledge to get where they are.
These athletes are the coaches that you will be matched with on coachme triathlon.
They are ready and willing to share with you the same tips, knowledge, shortcuts and training specifics that worked for them, to get them where they are today. The coachme coaches live everywhere, many in your zip code. Working with a coach is not a guarantee of performance, but consider simply how you would benefit from learning how you can gain a few minutes in your next Triathlon?
Imagine what these athletes could teach you about our sport...
What's the next step? By completing the profile, which will take you 10-15 minutes, you will enable us to match you with the local coaches who have the specific skills that you are looking to improve upon. You can then choose to work one on one with one coach for all disciplines, or choose to work with specific coaches for each discipline.
All payment, scheduling, on line plans and management of your account is through your athlete page once you have completed the profile and logged in [see the ‘how it works’ page for more details - Available 2-1-11]. You will communicate directly with your coach once you choose them. The coach works in the same way, we handle all of the business side for them, this allows the coach to focus on training you to achieve your goals, not on building or providing the tools that may help, or collecting payment.
There are no commitments or contracts on coachme, you can change coaches weekly in order to gather the most knowledge, or if you find a coach that works well with you, continue to work solely with them. You can simply choose your coach and time every week, or sign up for multiple weeks with the coaches, it is up to you. Some weeks you may not have the disposable income for a coach, we understand this, other weeks you may have the ability to reserve several weeks with different coaches, coachme is as flexible as you need to be.
