Hi, I’m Mark Pearce, Head Coach at Intelligent Triathlon Training.
No matter whether you are aiming to complete your first triathlon, win your age group, be a successful professional or simply improve your performance, I can help.
All I ask is that you are keen, committed and want to improve.
If you’re coached by me, you can be sure that everything will be covered. I have extensive experience of all aspects of preparation for triathlon. So not just swim, bike and run training, but also other aspects such as conditioning, nutrition and injury prevention.
Anyone can write a training programme or download one off the internet, but that plan isn’t specific to you.
If you choose to be coached by me, you will get a training plan tailored to meet your needs – so you can get the best out of yourself with whatever time you have available to train, and have confidence in achieving your goals.
And you can be sure that this plan has been put together with scientific backing, attention to detail and most importantly, with all your individual requirements and goals in mind.
If you sign up to be coached by Intelligent Triathlon Training, you will be coached by me, Mark Pearce, not passed off to an assistant coach.
Before committing to coaching anyone, I like to have a chat with you first to make sure I am what you are looking for in a coach, and that we both feel we could work successfully together.
We would also discuss the different coaching options available, to make sure you’re getting the right level of coaching support.
Once we’ve got that sorted, we’d have an in depth conversation so that I can find out all about you - your training and racing goals, background in the sport, time available to train and so on.
I would then put together your focused, 3 discipline training plan.
After this, we would communicate on a regular basis (how often will depend on the level of service you choose), usually by Skype.
From our detailed discussion and some analysis tools I use to help inform on current status, I will put together an overview of your training phases up until your main target event – your annual training plan.
will provide the basic outline of how and why the programme will work
for you, so you know what is coming and how all the components fit
We then discuss this and agree on the plan.
there I will plan the detail of the first block of training. I don’t
generally include more than 4 weeks of actual day-to-day training, so we
can be a little flexible depending on how you get on.
However, from your annual training plan you will have a good idea of what to expect moving forward.
Our regular discussions then focus upon how training has gone, session reviews, tweaks to the timetable or specifics of a session, and then ensuring the next training block is understood. This ensures your training is always on track and that you are progressing as planned.
As well as providing you with training plans, I can support you in your full preparation for a race.
For example I would analyse the demands of a particular race, the distance, climate, course and so on. I would ensure that your training programme is designed to meet those needs.
I can also advise on tapering, race pacing, as well as tactical/technical aspects, and nutrition.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss coaching.
We offer a variety of coaching options, as outlined here:
