I’ve had 121 coaching with Tri Energy for over 18 months now. In 2019 I trained for IM 70.3 Stafford and my first full IM in Hamburg. My Tri Energy training plan was completely tailored to my goals and nothing phased the coaches, even when I decided to sneak in the LCW in Holland along the way! The volume of training was really hard but the support and encouragement kept me going and there was peripheral advice available on nutrition, hydration etc. I will always be a back-of the-pack athlete but 121 coaching has enabled me to achieve more than I ever thought possible.
In 2020, 121 coaching has been valuable in a completely different way. Lockdown has meant that all events have been cancelled, no swimming, no group exercise – but there are virtual events emerging and apps like Zwift that mean we can train in very different ways, plus Tri Energy’s own sessions on Zoom, such as swim cord training and strength and conditioning, plus the weekly team challenge, Trisolation via Facebook, all of which I can access for free as part of my coaching package. The versatility and innovation of the club has really impressed me at this time. Best of all is that as a 121 coached athlete, I have had weekly phone calls with my coach through this period, to tailor my plan to goals that are realistic in the current environment and this has really kept my motivation going. I can’t recommend Tri Energy highly enough and it’s 121 coaching in particular to anyone who has specific training goals.
