After spending much of my adult life learning about the physiology of the body during exercise, as well as working as a clinical dietitian and coach, I have had great success in helping individuals of all ages and fitness abilities learn how to develop a healthy relationship with food. More so, with new "food" freedom and trust in the daily diet, I have helped athletes (and fitness enthusiasts) learn to eat in a way that maximizes performance as well as reduces risk for injury/illness. With a basic understanding of your individual needs, you will quickly find yourself recovering faster after workouts, encouraging gains in lean muscle mass and eliminating "sports nutrition" fears when it comes to eating before, during and after workouts and racing.
Half or Full Ironman
Half or Full Ironman
With years of endurance training, racing and coaching experience, our 20-week half or full Ironman distance training plans are designed to help you develop the necessary skills, stamina, endurance, strength and fitness to feel confident and prepared for your upcoming endurance event.
Training for an endurance event requires dedication and commitment. It’s understandable if you feel a bit overwhelmed with the amount of time, energy and focus that you will need to give to your training but still have to balance training with life (family, kids/family, travel).
We are glad that you came to Trimarni for help.
Our 20-week endurance training plans allow for gradual fitness progression and development to help you reduce the risk for injury, burn out and sickness as you train for performance gains. Our training plan takes the guessing away from what you should not be doing so you do the right training at the right time. As coaches who specialize in endurance coaching, we are confident that you will enjoy the detailed, periodized workouts in our training plans, which embody our coaching methodology so that you can train for athletic excellence while keeping your body in great health.
We believe that training for a triathlon event should be fun and you should enjoy the journey to the start line but you should not feel like training is taking over your life. Our plans are designed so that you are challenged enough to experience fitness improvements but not to the point that you will be overtrained. No matter your current fitness level or time constraints, we have formatted every workout to help you develop the necessary skills and fitness to feel ready to achieve athletic excellence at your upcoming half or full Ironman distance triathlon.
The half and full distance Trimarni training plans carefully incorporate the same Trimarni coaching workouts that helped athletes experience success in the past.
