Our Approach

Athletes are streamed into training progressions based upon current fitness and capability. All programs offer structured workouts via Training Peaks, along with regular testing to set benchmarks for each athlete’s zones and efforts. Coached, weekly group training sessions (in Prospect Park for runners & triathletes, and on Zwift for cyclists) build camaraderie, accountability, and learning. Each athlete is equally valued by the group. We cheer one another on, offer support when the going gets tough and the spirit lags, and celebrate successes and breakthroughs.

Coach Peter

The shortening days and dropping temperatures of fall and winter (did we mention rain and snow?) can make working out on our own a challenge. More importantly, we often do not know how to structure our off-season for the best results – what to do, for how long, in what order, and when. But the off-season offers an opportunity that comes but once-a-year to hone skills, increase strength and stamina, and set a strong foundation for the spring and summer. 

Startline Coaching is once again offering two popular off-season run and bike programs, this year with the option to extend beyond 12-weeks. 

Both programs offer structured workouts via Training Peaks, along with regular testing to set benchmarks for each athlete’s zones and efforts. Coached, weekly group training sessions (in Prospect Park for runners and on Zwift for cyclists) build camaraderie, accountability, and learning. Winter and/or spring races are included for goal-setting and testing our mettle. 

All levels are welcome: the beginner who’s gotten a taste of racing and wants to improve, the experienced athlete who wants to get back in shape after time away, the competitive age-grouper who wants to set their sights on new goals and challenges – and everyone in between. Each athlete is equally valued by the group. We cheer one another on, offer support when the going gets tough and the spirit lags, and celebrate successes and breakthroughs.

Startline Coaching will be offering two 10 session swim development programs this winter. Two days per week are offered: Wednesday or Friday mornings from 6:30 am – 7:30 am. Starting Jan 24, and ending April 10

  • Struggling with your swim form – Complete a swim progression focused on technique, endurance, & pacing control. Increase both the frequency & yardage that you swim, and receive specific form correction from a coach in a small group setting. Hold your best form for longer!
  • Intermediate swimmer looking for a breakthrough – Complete a swim progression focused on technique, power, and endurance development. Increase the tempo and rhythm of your stroke while refining technique under coach direction in a small group setting.

Startline Coaching is also offering a 22 week triathlon group training program suited to triathletes training to complete a May/June Sprint, Olympic or Half Ironman distance race. Meet twice a week as a group in Prospect Park. Execute prescribed solo workouts the rest of the week. Professional coaching guidance throughout your entire journey. Go into the season fit & race ready!

Such a fun day for the first group training session. Weather was cool, sun was out. The key focus early in training is to strengthen connective tissue, build muscle, and do some aerobic conditioning.

The aerobic system can be developed fundamentally by time on your feet. This can be done very effectively at 60% of HR Max. To maintain & develop your aerobic engine, the bulk of your training plan should be relatively easy in effort. In addition, at easy levels of effort, the strain on your connectivity tissue is reduced and recovery is substantially easier, which reduces overall injury risk.

Squats, lunges, planks & bridges introduce load to the musculature and connective tissue. Over a course of 4-6 weeks, consistent body weight strength work will make you a stronger and injury resistant athlete.

Combine 4 short, 10-min runs with multiple sets of strength work and now you have a formidable, time-efficient workout that works everything you need to begin to set your running base and improve your durability as an athlete.

Be efficient with your time, stay out of the gym at least for now, and enjoy the fall weather. Bask in the glory of being outside during the changing seasons with your friends.

It’s happening – 4 days to go. Get your shoes on and laces tied for the off season run/strength program. The team will meet at Connecticut Muffin on the corner of Prospect Park West & 15 St. in Brooklyn. On site registration is at 7:30 am or register now so you can sleep in a bit more.

Workout begins at 8:00 am! First work out is 30-40 mins of EZ running interspersed with body weight strength exercises. Come and have some fun in the park!
