BEARMAN Training Plans
Custom Triathlon Training Plans Explained
We provide a specific customised plan for the exact number of weeks required ( the minimum sign up period is 12 weeks) at the affordable price of 12€ per week. We use the Training Peaks Platform to provide you with a fully interactive and customised triathlon training program filled with great information and valuable training and racing tools designed for you by one of our Four Experienced Coaches.
STEP 1 – The Triathlete Profile
Once you have contacted us you are asked to complete our Online Coaching Questionnaire. Once you hit send your new triathlon coach will take a look through all this in detail. This questionnaire will gather complete information on you, your training and racing history as well as help you to define your goals. It will also provide a brief lifestyle audit (your working times, training times, equipment, training facilities, family commitments, etc) enabling our coaches to design the plan specifically for your needs, level and timeframe.
STEP 2 – Evaluation and Follow up
Armed with your information from the questionnaire, we will do a complete evaluation of your previous training and racing. We will determine your strengths and weaknesses as an athlete, evaluate your goals and determine how to best advance you towards them. If necessary, I’ll follow-up to gather more details or get clarification. I will also confirm the exact price of your plan with you (based simply on the number of weeks the plan runs for).
STEP 3 – Design of your New Training Plan
Lastly, we will design and build a fully customized triathlon training program just for you. The plan is designed for exactly the period of time you have available leading up to the event(s) or goal(s), in addition to the BEARMAN, you may wish to include other races and events, and of course continue the plan on into the future. Your program will gradually but progressively guide you towards your race(s). You’ll train optimally and avoid the pitfalls that come with following a generic program. You’ll become a better triathlete.
STEP 4 – Your New Training Plan Arrives

Giving you the ability to upload data from your heart rate monitor, GPS, and Power meters (compatible with over 80 different devices).
