Individual Training

Startline Coaching offers individualized season training programs for endurance athletes in the following endurance disciplines:

  • Open Water Swimming
  • Triathlon
  • Running
  • Cycling

Start with a custom training program and then add in additional services to meet your specific needs for an additional fee. The approach is ala carte. If you don’t see what you need, Startline Coaching will endeavor to build up a program for you to meet your specific needs as an athlete.

Startline coaching programs are individualized based upon the athlete’s training needs, goals, current fitness, athletic background, and natural abilities profile. The training plan is also adjusted based upon progress of the athlete, and life events. No plan is static!

Begin your journey by scheduling a one on one coach consultation.

Note: The safety of all athletes, coaches, and staff is of paramount concern as we collectively face the health and safety risks of the COVID-19 pandemic. All Startline Coaching programs follow USA Swimming best practices, USA Triathlon Safe Return to Multisport Guidelines and Return to Racing Recommendations for Race Directors and the directives issued by federal, state and local authorities. All athletes, coaches, & staff engaged in Startline Coaching programs are expected to follow the USA Triathlon Return to Racing recommendations for Athletes as well as Startline Coaching Return to Training Safety Code of Conduct.

Note: As of Oct 1, 2021, and without exception, all participants in Startline Coaching programs must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to attendance at any and all in-person Startline Coaching training or clinic sessions.
