I am a qualified PT with a background in muscle building, and before that I competed in long distance swimming so I had some knowledge of training; but nothing like what Sam has been able to offer. Firstly, I have already learnt so much about what sort of kit I need for Triathlon, what is essential and what is a “nice to have”. Sam also sent me lots of recommendations because as a beginner, I felt overwhelmed with all the options for kit.
Secondly, she has really helped me to understand how to focus on the three different sports and how to train effectively for each. I was previously training at almost max effort every session and didn’t really understand how to build it up. Sam has got this all under control for me and plans out all of my sessions for me so I don’t have to worry about what I need to do. I love the fact she will only plan a few days ahead to start with until she gets to know you better as an athlete. I have had coaching in other areas before when I got a 12 week plan right at the start with very little interaction.
Thirdly, I had no idea how much I would benefit from her motivational energy and enthusiasm, I felt fairly motivated before starting but Sam brings a whole new level to it that turns it from being a goal on paper to an enjoyable experience every single day. She has really brought triathlon to life for me and made me feel excited to be a part of the community.
Fourthly, being a part of Tri-Energy has made me feel supported and like I am part of something bigger than myself which is fantastic. The group is full of wonderful people who are all happy to support and share positivity. I didn’t even think about this element before signing up but now I am so grateful.
I can not recommend Sam highly enough, this woman is amazing and will be the best investment you can make in your sporting journey.
