We, at Trifit XT, do encourage you to be selective when choosing a coach. Trifit XT coaches have been part of the Triathlon/Adventure Racing community for over 10 years and we are extremely passionate about what we do! We are firm believers in coaching with integrity and maintaining quality. Our vision is to help our clients achieve their goals, whether it be setting personal records and reaching their full athletic potential, or to simply maintain fitness and enjoy the company of others who share the same hobby. We love building relationships with our clients and we believe communication is key. We want our clients to call us, text us, email us, and meet with us to discuss any questions or concerns they may have about training.
We believe in empowering individuals. Hand holding is a disservice to the athlete. We see your potential- it is up to you to fulfill. Take what we give you and run with it. Be consistent. Execute the plan. Now is the time to stop making excuses. Change comes from within. Make it happen!
How to find a Quality Coach:
- If possible, talk to someone who has been coached by the person you are considering being coached by. Ask that person about their experience.
- Find out the contact information of the coach and make a list of questions you would like to ask. Contact the coach via phone instead of email to ask questions. This will help you find out if the coach actually knows his/her stuff instead of cutting and pasting from something they found on the internet. Here is an example of good questions to ask:
-How do you prefer to communicate with your clients?
-How often do you communicate with your clients?
-What do you value as a coach?
-What got you into the coaching business?
-How much race experience do you have?
-What steps do you take to stay up to date and knowledgeable about the sport/sports you coach?
-What separates you from other coaches or what do you think you have to offer that other coaches don't?
-What characteristics do you possess that make you a great coach for an athlete such as I?
- Ask a lot of questions and expect elaborate explanations for most of their answers.
- Listen to see if the coach takes interest in you by asking questions about you.
