No two athletes are alike. That’s why Race Smart’s triathlon coaching meets you where you are–and moves you forward. Whether you’re looking to compete in your first race, get in shape, or hit a PR, Race Smart’s training plans in swimming, cycling, and running are created with your unique needs in mind.
Race Smart realizes that each athlete comes from a different fitness background and that we’re all unique in our physical abilities. We take pride in treating each athlete individually–no two training plans, race-day scenarios, or fueling strategies look the same. What’s more, thoughtful coaching isn’t just about delivering an athlete to a destination–we want you to enjoy the journey, too. An artfully designed training plan helps you reach your potential without sacrificing your health. Along the route to wherever you’re going, you’ll build a strong body and sound mind that will help you feel prepared no matter what race day throws at you
Along with a personalized coaching plan, (Elite plan is included), you will receive a customized sports nutrition fuel plan to better fuel your body pre/during/post workouts as you prep for race day (additional fee). As a sport certified registered dietitian, Susan has the expertise and extensive experience in sports nutrition to help you overcome any nutrition obstacle you encounter during training and on race day.
Individual attention and ongoing support are foundational to Race Smart’s triathlon coaching philosophy. If you are considering using Race Smart as your coach, and have questions or want to know more about our philosophy and customized triathlon coaching service, I’d love for you to contact us to set up a complimentary phone call.
