For some athletes, a full coaching relationship isn’t affordable or desirable, but they want an expert to draw them up a custom triathlon training plan based around their individual circumstances with detailed workout and instructions. Seeing “40 minutes in Z2” written in an excel spreadsheet isn’t going to cut it. They need more in the way of specificity.
Our plans are delivered via TrainingPeaks. They come with clear instructions, progression and individualised targets which can be sent directly to your fitness device. We take into account the equipment you have available, the days you have available to train, your preference for rest days, your strengths/weaknesses as well as your schedule between now and the event.
Plans start from £10 per week and last for as long as you need them to. Need a plan to take you all the way up to an Ironman in ten months time? No problem. Realised you’re in over your head and need a quick four week plan to get you round your first triathlon? No job it too small.
While we primarily offer triathlon plans, we can also provide plans for open water swimming, cycling and running as well.
How Our Custom Triathlon Training Plans Work
The process starts with a video/phone call or face to face meeting where we learn more about you as an athlete. We will discuss your training history and what you’re looking to achieve. If you’d rather skip this step, we can send you a quick questionnaire instead.
We will then send you a link to connect our TrainingPeaks account to yours. Once your TrainingPeaks account is synced to a fitness service such as Garmin, Suunto or Polar, workouts should start populating your calendar so we can see the kind of training you’ve been putting in both recently and historically.
You start to fill in the calendar with current commitments, events and regular training sessions you would like us to work around
We send you a health questionnaire to make sure there isn’t anything we need to take into consideration.
Once we have your completed form, we will send you confirmation of the price and payment details
Sit back and wait for us to write your custom triathlon training plan. This should normally be within seven days, but we’ll let you know if there is a delay for any reason.
We E-mail you when your plan is complete with any notes from the coach. It’s then up to you to put in the hard work and achieve your goals!
Looking for more from your training plan? You can purchase the following add ons to your plan:
Monthly Catch up and Plan Adjustments- £30 per month
This add on is for those looking for a bit more support to go alongside their plan and the option for me to edit your plan as the season progresses. For an extra £30 per month you can have a monthly call with me to discuss how things are going, and I will make any tweaks necessary to the plan after the call.
Nutrition Add On- £60 extra
Looking for help with your race and/or day to day nutrition? Want to know how to fuel your workouts without gaining body fat? Unsure how to avoid stomach issues during the run? Wondering what the breakfast of champions is? We can setup a 90 minute call to go through your current diet, easy tweaks we can make to maximise exercise adaptation, and that all important on bike fuelling. More information can be found here
Strength Assessment- £40 extra
We will provide a generic strength plan for you if required, but with one of our strength assessments we can provide a virtual strength assessment to identify weaknesses, imbalances, and potential injuries waiting to happen. We can then provide you with a bespoke strength plan for you to follow, and optimise performance.
Coached Session- £40 extra
This is essentially just an hour of my time, for whatever you would like to work on. It could be an in person coached session if you are local, an analysis of videos you have of yourself training, help choosing the right kit, or anything else you would like to pick my brains about. You can purchase as many of these as you deem necessary.

Will you write a plan for my child, partner, colleague e.t.c.?
Yes, we absolutely provide custom training plans as gifts. However we will need to enter into a discussion with the athlete in question before delivering the plan. We need to be aware of any potential health or injury issues before writing the plan, as well as learn more about them. Drop us a message and we’ll find a solution.
Will you be able to follow my progress?
Yes, as our TrainingPeaks accounts will be linked. As a result we will be able to view your training and refer to it if you have questions for us.
Will you make adjustments to my plan if my circumstances change?
Broadly speaking, no, unless you have purchased the relevant add on. That being said, we’re not unreasonable so if there has been a major change to your situation drop us an E-mail and we’ll be able to advise on the best way to adjust your training. If major adjustments are required, we may be able to provide these for a small fee if you desire. This will be assessed on a case by case basis.
Should I pay for a TrainingPeaks premium membership to go with my plan?
This isn’t necessary unless you are looking to move future workouts around or want to gain advanced insight into your workouts. It can certainly help, but the questions is, what would you do with the information if you had it? You get a free 30 day premium membership when you open your TrainingPeaks account. You can use this as an chance to have a poke around and see if the features interest you.
Do your plans include strength and conditioning workouts?
Yes, we will include strength sessions unless you want to opt out of these.
If you have any more questions, simply drop us a message using the form above and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible
