Why Should You Have A Coach?
A Triathlon Coach can help you train smarter, get faster, enjoy the sport even more and remain injury-free. Whether your goal involves find the perfect triathlon for you, increasing your speed or distance, or just training smarter and saving time, a coach is your ticket to growing in your sport!
It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced triathlete or a beginner; a coach can make the difference in a good year and a great year of competitions by creating a personal training plan that fits your lifestyle and goals, and holds you accountable for putting in the work!
Training in three disciplines makes it three times as important (and helpful) to have a coach who specializes in triathlons at your side, helping you tweak and train – not to mention keeping you motivated! A coach is not only objective in doling out rest days but they serve as a fatigue manager and helps you by maintaining an emotional detachment from the actual training and racing. Unlike your internal message, your coach will gauge your body’s abilities as well as your mind’s willingness to make sure you don’t end up overtraining – which can result in injuries, decreased time and a lot of frustration.
Keep in mind, putting together a successful training program and managing it takes a significant amount of time. Most of us are also busy with work and family responsibilities. Having a coach can take that burden off of you, and you can rest assured you’re getting the benefits of their years of training experience.
So if you’re ready to take it up a level, or you’re just getting started and want to avoid training injuries and under or over training, contact us today to get started with an LB Endurance coach.
