Consultations per triathlon training plan include triathlon training/racing season goal setting around work/family/social outlets and gathering current fitness level data–age, height, weight, base and max heart rate zones per swim/bike/run discipline–that will complement a 3, 4, or 6-8 week periodization training schedule.

Custom triathlon training schedules for entry and/or elite level triathletes are built using 3, 4, or 6-8 week periodization with swim/bike/run training zones of base preparation, build, and taper weeks working within target heart rate zones per discipline allowing for form focus, endurance/strength and max VO2 training level ease.

Unlimited monthly phone/email coaching contact is available per Triathlon Training Plan 1, 2, or 3 reviewing swim/bike/run training performance data per discipline, but 1-on-1 Private Scheduled Training Sessions with your coach analyzing form and technique per discipline are only available with Triathlon Training Plans 2 or 3, and are dates/times that are agreed upon by both the athlete and coach for the length of their overall training plan, whether it’s a plan as short as 3 months or as long as 8 months or more. Each athlete’s triathlon training schedule plans are revealed one month at a time, regardless of the triathlon training plan option chosen.

How to Get Started with Triathlon Coaching and Training

1. View our Service Appointment Calendar to select your desired consultation date/time and the Triathlon Training Plan 1, 2, or 3 you are seeking.

2. Once your consultation date/time and triathlon training plan have been selected, you will be directed to to a secure PayPal page where payment and registration will be completed.

3. Once consultation and triathlon training plan payment has been received, you will be contacted via phone/email, or meet in person if possible, with a Coaching Questionaire to gather necessary training data prior to your monthly schedule development.

4. Your training schedule, regardless of the plan you choose or triathlon distance you are training for, will only be revealed to you one month at a time, hence the required 3 month minimum commitment and acknowledgment of a month-to-month payment for each phase of your selected triathlon training plan.

Or, you may pay for your triathlon training plan in full based on both the level of triathlon training plan chosen and the number of months it takes to get you through your week-to-week training schedule/month, training B & C-Races, and up to your A-Race.

For example, if you choose Triathlon Training Plan 1, and your intended schedule takes you 6 months to get you to your A-Race, then 6 x $150/month + $50 consultation fee = $950. In addition, a TRAIN-OR-TRI Liability Waiver will be emailed to you to be filled out and emailed back along with the Coaching Questionaire ASAP prior to beginning writing your triathlon training plan. You will be given an approximated turn around time for your first month of personalized triathlon training schedule after your consultation and the parameters of your training have been clarified followed by month two of your training and payment, and so on.

Testimonials from a few recent bike fittings:

I would like to thank Mo at TRAIN-OR-TRI for the most awesome bike fit.  My bike is so comfortable now.  I was able to take 3 minutes off my Lake Padden Triathlon bike split this year and have pretty much crushed all my pre-bikefit Strava PRs.  If you have never had your bike fit to you, you are missing out on some serious speed!  Thanks, Mo!

Mo was amazing! She has a sharp eye for details, and was able to quickly pick up a few elements in my bike fit that made quit a difference in my riding. She used video taped analysis of my riding form throughout to assess the issues, and followed up with more video to ensure that corrections had been made.
Her attention to the details of the fit are exceptional. I had recently gone from riding only about 50 miles a week to 120 or so, and was noticing a few areas of discomfort on the bike with the increased mileage. Mo continued to tweak the setting of the cleats and seat until she felt it was perfect. I have never had a bike fit so uniquely to my riding style and body, and now feel like I can ride all I want with no problems at all!

For a while I was eye-balling my seat’s height and my cleat position. I moved the saddle forward little bit and then back after few weeks. I kept telling myself that I will get used to all discomfort and the saddle just needed to break-in until I met Mo Trainor. She was really patient, precise on measurement, and explained every step on my bike fit.
Needless to say she spent more time than what it called for and she undid all my experiment settings. Now I’m riding with more comfort and am getting stronger every day. I’m glad that I got it done and wish that I had got it done sooner. I would recommend her bikefit to anybody that needs one.

Another precision bike fit by TRAIN-OR-TRI. This is the fourth bike Mo’s dialed in for me and I can’t recommend her services enough! The amount of power and comfort afforded from a properly fit bike is immediately noticeable. Thanks for breakin’ out the lasers, protractor and iPad again Mo!

Why Spin?
New to cycling? Training for the upcoming triathlon season? TRAIN-OR-TRI spin class provides a low impact, high intensity workout for all ability levels on Cycle-Ops turbo trainers and riser blocks. You bring your own road/tri bike, cycling shoes, hydration/nutrition, sweat towel, and enthusiasm. Indoor turbo training on your own road/tri bike increases bike handling skills, teaches effective gear utilization, and promotes proper body/aero positioning while spinning your way into aerobic/anaerobic fitness.

What is Periodization and PRE-Training?
TRAIN-OR-TRI spin classes are built on a 4 week periodization schedule: 2 weeks of power climb, 1 week of race pace, and 1 week of active recovery. Every 4 weeks the intensity level ramps up via gear load, number of repetitions per drill, and duration per drill. Each cyclists perceived rate of exertion (PRE) will vary per drill per week of periodization, allowing cyclists to differentiate between recovery versus tempo versus race pace.
