COACHING PHILOSOPHY

As a coach I use an athlete-centered approach and all my programs are specific and tailored to the athlete’s specific needs and goals. My main priority is also to make sure that the training sessions fit into your life and not the other way around.

Therefore, in the very first period I’m working with an athlete, I work together with you to understand your life commitments. After that I plan and adapt the training schedule. I believe that periodization towards a goal can be similar for different athletes because of the scientific foundation of the training plan, but I also believe that every person cannot be coached in the same way.

I believe that a coach must be flexible and adapt to the unique human being he or she is working with in order to unlock their true potential. In my coaching methodology, I tend also to give the same importance and stress to the four main areas of triathlon training: endurance training, strength and conditioning, nutrition and rest and recovery.

I work most of the time through the online training software Training Peaks, but mostly because it makes it easier for me to send and review the programs week after week. However, I also am able to send the programs in different formats, like excel sheets or even email.

I'm currently undertaking the British Triathlon Level 3 coaching course for High Performing Coach Programme under the mentoring od Dan Lorang — coach of pro cycling team BORA-hansgrohe and personal coach of 2 x Ironman World Champion Jan Frodeno (2015 and 2016) and Anne Haug (3th in Kona in 2018). I already completed the Level 1 and 2, on top of the Ironman coaching certification, the Training Peaks online course and the Level 3 in Personal Training. 

If you want to get in touch to talk through your goals and targets, which can be anything from completing your first triathlon to getting a personal best at an Ironman event -- or even if you want to get in shape for the next winter season (or lose a few pounds) just drop me a line here:
