We offer three (3) Individual Training Plans (ITP) for youth and adults. Each has varying levels of communication, training adjustments, data analysis, testing, and coach interaction to help you achieve your performance goals.
The quality of the coach-athlete relationship is paramount. Through our coaching and support staff, ,,iCAN triathletes have access to Art and Science training methodologies including scientific training parameters demonstrated to enhance individual performance. Not all athletes require an ITP. In the development of an athlete from youth to elite, the athlete passes through many phases of development. When considering a training plan for youth or adults there are many considerations including, chronological age, developmental age (physical, mental and emotional), general training age and sport specific training age. It’s also necessary to consider the sport specific engagement, skill level, experience, and goals (short and long term) of the individual athlete.
What is an individual Training Plan?
An ITP is the combination of the art and scientific process of planning and periodization (training, nutrition, rest, and testing). We analyze the goals and objectives of the individual athlete and develop a comprehensive training plan (TP) which is periodized to meet the athlete’s performance objectives. This plan may incorporate scientific testing protocols necessary to establish the athlete’s initial bio markers and periodic testing to monitor the athlete’s improvements in performance.
When do I need an individual Training Plan?
When a youth or adult athlete becomes committed to the sport and begins to develop specific goals and objectives the training should become more specialized. Upon initial consultation, the athlete may be asked to complete an Athlete Assessment. This will address and determine the athlete’s specific training plan requirements, goals and objectives. The training plan is designed to give the athlete the best opportunity to realize their training, racing and performance goals while providing scientific information to track, evaluate, and quantify the athlete’s progress and performance. Training plans are prepared using state-of-the-art software from Training Peaks. The ITP isn’t limited to just triathlon. It can be designed and integrated with individual disciplines such as swimming, cycling, or running.
How does it work?
- Step 1: Schedule a meeting with the Lead Coach to discuss the athlete’s goals, objectives, and expectations.
- Step 2: Complete an Athlete Assessment.
- Step 3: Review Athlete Assessment and establish a realistic plan.
- Step 4: Complete administrative paperwork.
- Step 5: Remit fees for start-up.
