Our coaches create a season plan that structures your training around your planned races and goals. You’ll know when you’ll focus on a race-specific training plan, and when you’ll recover and maintain your fitness with a maintenance plan.
All Coached triathletes build a personalised training plan. Whether you’re new to triathlon or aiming for a Kona slot, training for a race, or simply wish to maintain fitness, Coached provides you with a carefully structured and detailed training plan.
Triathlon is a strength-based sport. Coached training incorporates sport-specific strength training into your swims, rides, and runs to save you time while we make you strong. If you want to do functional strength training outside of the three disciplines, our library has detailed strength training sets to choose from.
Let’s face it; there’s lots of sh*t you need to get done each week and running is just one of those things. Life happens, and we understand that. You tell Coached how many times you want to train each week, and what days you want to do each session. If things come up or your plans change, you can easily adjust your training. If it’s major, our coaches are there to help you.
Most triathletes prefer to train by pace/power OR heart rate. At Coached, we advocate a hybrid approach. You train by heart rate during low-intensity sessions and to pace/power for race-specific training. This best-of-both-worlds approach ensures the work gets done, while carefully balancing fatigue and the risk of injury.
If a session looks good, we’ll give you a like. When we see something that doesn’t look right or needs your attention, we’ll comment. You can also comment on your training sessions to provide context. For example, why you cut a session short or ran harder than prescribed.
If you’ve been feeling under the weather, are wondering what to eat, what shoes to buy or have questions about your training, our small team of passionate coaches is just an email or in-app message away. Unlike some coaches, we do not limit how many times you contact us in a week. If you have a question, you need an answer, and we’ll make sure you get it.
Coached is more than a training programme; it’s a virtual team. Every Saturday, join your coaches and teammates on Zoom. We share updates, athlete results, chat and answer questions. It’s great fun! If you miss it, we upload the video and a podcast of the session so you can listen to it during your next session.
The team Telegram group connects everybody. Chat with your teammates, share updates and useful articles you’ve read. If you’re struggling for motivation, the team is happy to provide you with a nudge in the right direction.
Each week our coaches have dedicated hours scheduled for 1:1 Zoom calls with our athletes. Book a call every 4 – 6-weeks to chat with a coach about your training, race strategy, progress, nutrition, or anything else on your mind.
Mental strength and resilience are just as important as physical conditioning. We teach simple tactics for improving your mental game and managing pain.
Learn to fuel your body correctly so that you can improve fat burning, lower inflammation and recover optimally from training and racing.
Triathlon performance is found in the balance of stress and rest. Our programmes have a strong focus on recovery so that your performance and health are never compromised.
Many triathletes get fit only to blow it on race day. Use our race execution strategies to maximise fitness on race day and perform at your potential when it matters most.
“Coached has given my training structure and is flexible at the same time. This makes training much more bearable. With constant support from the coaches and a supportive community, training is fun and I have progressed quicker than I expected.”
“Iʼve come a long way with Coached. Various podium finishes, four Half Ironman’s, and one Ironman under my belt. Coached has helped me be very consistent in my training and improve my fitness level significantly.”
“In the four years, I have been Coached, I have reduced my marathon time by 20%, participated in several half-ironman events and finished my first Ironman. Coached programmes work very well with my busy work schedule as the programme is flexible around my business trips. The support and tips from the coaches are very helpful as challenges often arise in training and racing.”
