ENDURANCE Coaching

Training toward a big athletic achievement is a lot easier (and a lot more fun) when you have a team of people helping who are totally invested in your success.

1:1 Coaching

Work one-on-one with coaches who are certified, experienced, and FUN…and whose sole purpose is turning you into a legit badass! You bring your athletic dreams and passion; we help you spend your precious time and energy wisely so your dreams become reality. This coaching style is recommended for the athlete that:
  • seeks regular feedback
  • desires expert guidance
  • pursues continuous improvement, day-to-day and year-to-year
  • focuses on enjoying the journey and committing to the process
We assess your current fitness level, help you set goals, deliver training, offer feedback, and answer all the questions. Plans include options for Performance Testing and LBE Lab swim membership.

Group Coaching Options

You know what they say. Teamwork makes the dream work. And it definitely makes it more fun where learning and training is concerned. LBE offers group instruction to groups of three athletes or more – for swimming, cycling, running, and multisport disciplines.

Clinic delivery is customized for each group based on collective athlete experience, goals, schedule and setting. 

Examples:

  • Beginner Bike Tour: Learn bike anatomy, basic maintenance and operation, then head out for a group ride to learn road rules, how to ride with others and techniques like steering, braking, climbing, descending and shifting.
  • Open Water Swim EQ: Using Fresh Freestyle Coach Dinah Mistilis’s incredible EQ tools, we transfer your pool swimming skills to the open water by eliminating emotional pitfalls that inevitably lurk beneath.
  • Bike 101: You bought the bike and helmet…but you still feel intimidated by what seems like a simple machine. Here’s the secret: The more you know about how to operate it, the faster you can ride it!  On the ground and on a ride, we’ll teach you what all the “thingees” are really called, how to use the “whatchamacallits” and what’s the best line to take through that tricky corner.

What they told you in kindergarten is true: Sometimes we need to sit (almost) still to learn stuff and things. 

Classes and workshops can be delivered in-person at LBE Lab, via the miracles of modern technology, or at a location you pick. Topics include season planning, winning race strategies, race fueling and daily nutrition, TrainingPeaks tutorials, open-water and cold-water swimming, and more. Let us know what you want to learn, and we swear to tell you the truth about our expertise in that area. (We might also be able to recommend someone else if we don’t have much.)

LBE Lab is experienced at building and delivering training camps for groups in and around the greater Knoxville, TN area – and also in farther away places like fabulous Las Vegas. We can assemble one-day fully supported bike tours or host a long weekend filled with education, training, testing, and team-building fun.

Let our team lead yours to a fun finish – a successful completion of a “couch to 5k” run program, or a group triathlon entry. We customize the program for your company’s culture, schedule, values, and wellness goals.

TRAINING PLANS

For the athlete who is self-motivated, disciplined, and also wants to know they’re getting a modern, high-quality plan to help them perform for a goal event. 8- to 24-week plans are available across a variety of common race events (e.g., 10k open water swim event or half distance triathlon). Don’t see a plan you seek… ask us!

A la carte customization is available; buy a plan and have LBE customize it to your particular events, life schedule, equipment, and training specifications (or limitations).

CONSULTATIONS

Ask us anything you want. Seriously.

For a single 90-minute session, our coaches answer your questions, provide resources, feedback, and guidance.  

Here’s an example: You’re well on your way down Badass Boulevard, with both multisport and single sport races planned. You already own and are working your plan for the multisport event, but you are a little unsure if you’re doing enough, or maybe you’re trying too much to fit in the other events?!  We’d love to help you sort through it all and maximize your chances of success.
