Why Choose Podium Training?

Choosing a coach for customized, one on one, programming to improve your training and racing is an important decision. Why should you choose Podium Training Systems? Podium Training Systems athletes have had some great results over the last couple of seasons, and we'd like to be a part of your future success. Have a look at what some of our athletes have said:

Through Podium Training, Dave has helped me go from training on my own as an existing AG elite to pushing new PR's across my swim bike and run. The training has been exactly what I needed: putting hard workouts where they need to be, adding a structured overall strategy towards an A race, and best of all, giving my training renewed enjoyment and personal reward.
Our TrainingPeaks relationship has been all the more successful when combined with the Podium Training tri-camp series. In addition to 1:1 coaching on form/mechanics/technique, we have a personal context to find new growth.

I initially started swimming with Dave’s US Masters swim group. Those first few months of swim training were painful, but having Dave on deck really helped with the motivation and pushed me in just the way I needed. The workouts were tough, but he kept them varied and interesting. I gradually progressed and my swim times improved significantly, more than I even anticipated. In the local Colorado Xterra races I competed in, I was often one of the top age-group female swimmers out of the water. This was somewhat unexpected as mountain biking is my strong suit, not swimming! I then hired him to help with biking and running workouts as well. These also pushed me and gave me the intensity training that I needed. Long story short, I won my age group at the Xterra World Championships with a winning margin of 15 minutes. I owe much of that success to Dave’s help

Can You Say Miracle Worker?
The date was April 28 and I had the Boulder Ironman coming up on August 7th and this was my first swim session with Dave Burgess. Oh, did I mention I could not swim the length of the pool? He took video, broke down my swim stroke, and started with basic mechanics and breathing. I listened, practiced, and started to swim.  Dave knew I was determined, but even this was a big mountain to climb for a coach and an athlete.
Seven weeks later I asked Dave for a swim test. A two hour session in the pool to see if I could cover the 2.4 miles. This would be a huge mental obstacle to overcome. I swam the 2.4 miles in 92 minutes!  I walked away with the confidence that I could complete the first leg of the Ironman.
If you need a coach that is encouraging, a great teacher, and will get you the results you need to compete in your event, Dave Burgess is the guy!  I am an Ironman because of Dave Burgess.

Dave coached me through my second Ironman where I saw a noticeable change in my swim efficiency and speed. That efficiency transferred over nicely to Xterra triathlons. I am now a top swimmer and age-group competitor in the Xterra series.
