Semi-Custom Training Plans

Not sure if full custom coaching is for you? Not to worry. Podium Training Systems provides semi-custom training plans to fit every race distance and ability.

What's a semi-custom training plan? We don't believe in providing plans that simply tell you to go swim, bike, or run, with no consideration to working the proper energy systems, your ability, or your needs. Our training plans take your current ability into consideration through initial baseline testing across all disciplines. Heart rate for the run, pace for the swim, and power or heart rate zones on the bike are created and all of your training is then specifically tailored to you and your ability. Regular re-testing ensures that all of your training is providing the best impact through the duration of your training.

What sets our training plans apart from most of the static plans that are available online is that we include one on one consultations to ensure that any questions you might have regarding the structure, testing, and upcoming training are answered and you are fully ready to embark on your triathlon training journey. Once purchased, you'll be contacted to not only get your training plan loaded into Training Peaks, but to schedule your individual consultation with Coach Dave and to ensure that your plan is exactly what you need. It's that simple. 

Regardless of your age, ability, and target race distance, Podium Training Systems can help you make your next race your best race. Questions? Email us: dave@podiumtraining.com
