Sancture Online Coaching Explained
Our online triathlon coaching program provides you with customised support and attention from your own experienced Triathlon Coach 24/7. We use the Training Peaks platform to provide you with a fully interactive and customised triathlon training program filled with great information and valuable training and racing tools from one of our five experienced coaches.
How The Process Works
Once you have contacted us you are asked to complete a triathlete profile. At this stage your potential new triathlon coach will contact you to discuss your profile further. You can both raise any questions you may have and more importantly start to get to know each other.
From your triathlete profile we gather detailed information about you, your training and racing history and your goals. It allows us to perform a full and thorough evaluation before building your annual training plan.
Using our training philosophy, your program gradually and progressively builds you into better triathlete, however old or young you are and whatever your current level. We help prepare you for the challenges of your race distance as well as specifically prepared objectives.
The training plan is built specifically for you, taking into account your commitments with regard to your family life, available training time, training facilities, equipment and club sessions etc. We cater for all levels of athletes from complete beginners all the way through to professional athletes.
Training Peaks Software
The training details for each and every session can bee seen on Training Peaks and are automatically emailed to you on a daily basis. No more guesswork on what triathlon training to do, just check your email or the day’s training schedule. This schedule incorporates every single workout. We will also list the purpose for each workout as well as any special instructions or goals for workouts and races.
The plan is built around the primary goal of your training cycle and along with your weekly feedback, is updated to reflect how your training is going. This plan is also adjusted whenever “life happens” and you need to change things around.
The Athlete’s Commitment
Online coaching is a two-way street and your feedback is essential. Just as we provide the training plans, we expect you to provide all the feedback that will allow us to help you achieve your best. Throughout the program we rely upon consistent weekly feedback via your online training diary, email, text or phone.
Letting your coach know the results of each key workout or race, any problems with the training, upcoming holidays, family commitments etc is essential. This allows us to make any necessary adjustments to the training schedule.
The schedule you receive is not set in stone but is a flexible work in progress. It is modified continually, based on your feedback and with the results of each workout and race. This is why we ask that you keep us updated on how the training is going.
Unlimited Contact With Your Coach
Unlike other coaching programs, we don’t limit the number of calls or emails from athletes. We wholeheartedly welcome and encourage your feedback as often as necessary, especially in the early part of the training schedule. Send us all your questions, let us know how things are going both physically and mentally. You are the only one who truly knows your body so we rely on your feedback to keep your program on the fast track to success.
