Why would you want to join Midwest Triathlon Coaching?
Here are some of the benefits other athletes tell us they get from the Coaching Relationship:
- Take the guess work out of training
- How much volume? Swimming vs. biking vs. running?
- How often to train the three sports and how hard should the sessions be? How about strength training?
- When to push vs. when should you take time to recover? (Hint: most athletes get it wrong)
- Saves time
- Spend valuable time training, not trying to decide what to do and when to do it.
- Stop wasting time doing the wrong things. Do what should be done, not what could be done. (Or worse, what your buddies told you they are doing. Hear that far too often!)
- Saves money (Because let's face it, triathlon is an expensive sport.)
- Avoid costly mistakes such as buying the wrong equipment or signing up for the wrong race.
- The Team gets some great discounts on things you already buy.
- With a Coach inspecting your training log, it provides the extra push needed when motivation sometimes starts to slip.
- Have a plan that has been built by a professional that takes into account your busy life.
- Every workout has a purpose that is moving towards your specific training and racing goals.
- Social Connections
- Get to know other MTC athletes at training events and races.
- Develop training buddies and long term friendships with like-minded people.
- Arrive at the start line knowing you have done the right things to prepare and are truly ready to go!

Midwest Triathlon Coaching Philosophy -
- The coaching relationship as a true partnership between coach and athlete.
- The journey belongs to the athlete; a coach is part of the team that also includes family and friends all working together to get the athlete ready for race day.
- Athletes must be clear about their goals and expectations; a coach helps them realize what is believable and achievable.
- A good triathlete is a balanced triathlete: swim/bike/run or life/work/sport.
- Getting fast and "going long" takes hard work and consistent effort; "overnight successes" are few and far between.
