A goal without a plan is just a wish. Coach Alison Freeman is a USA Triathlon Level II Endurance Certified, Ironman Certified, and TrainingPeaks Level 2 Accredited Coach. She has proven success getting first-time 70.3 and Ironman-distance athletes to the finish line, as well as proven success with time improvement for experienced 70.3 and Ironman-distance athletes.
Alison works primarily with long-course athletes (70.3 and Ironman), and specializes in working with athletes new to long-course racing, as well as athletes with atypical or unusually time-constrained schedules.
Her biggest goal as a coach is to set you up for success! She wants to make sure that your training fits into your pre-existing life and provides the balance that you need in order to juggle all of your commitments and interests.
Her approach to training is focused on educating you as an athlete so that you have the tools to succeed both in training and on race day. She is very data-driven in how she analyzes your workouts, but also relies heavily on your workout comments to understand the bigger picture of any day's training. By providing structured training, making sure you understand the "why" of the training approach, and using qualitative and quantitative feedback to assess your workout execution, she assures that you toe the start line with your best chance for success on race day.
Additionally, she greatly values the personal relationship that goes hand in hand with coaching. The better she knows you as a person, the better she can ensure that training is an enjoyable part of your life. Because if it's not fun, it's not worth doing!
1-on-1 Coaching, Consultations, Local Coaching, Remote Coaching
My only requirement is that you, as the athlete, will communicate with me regarding your workouts and other relevant life info. An athlete-coach relationship is nothing without good communication!
The coach consultation includes a one hour discussion with a TrainingPeaks Level 2 coach on the phone or video call. This also includes one month of TrainingPeaks Premium Athlete Edition and a completed coaching consultation summary after your call.
