I am passionate about sports and physical activity. I grew up a soccer player in Italy and have completed numerous Triathlons, from Sprint to Ironman.
I believe One on One coaching provides the best performance on race day.
Every athlete is different in their physiology, strengths, weaknesses and response to training.
As such, a tailored and personalized approach will provide the optimal results.
My approach is quantitative as I truly believe the saying "What gets measured gets Improved!"
Marco is a USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach, USA Cycling Level 2 Coach, USA Cycling Power Based Training Certified, US Masters Swimming Level 2 Coach and a Training Peaks Level 2 Certified Coach.
My coaching and training approach is predicated on the belief that quantitatively driven training provides the most likely path to success. This process is based on creating an unbiased and objective assessment of an athlete, their strengths and weaknesses measured against goals and objectives. Only once this is done can a training plan truly be designed that will be both tailored to the athlete and focused on their goals.
As the athlete develops and changes, the training plan will adapt to match the new needs. This will insure progress and not stagnation.
One thing I found in both coaching and my own training is that quantifying performance improvements (and/or decline) can be a great motivator for an athlete. It can provide validation that all the hard work is worth it. It can also force an athlete to face shortcomings in their approach to training or the coach in their training prescriptions.
Nothing can replace the knowledge, experience and insight of a good coach, but a good coach can achieve extraordinary success if he or she not only has access to good data but can apply it to the individual athlete. This will result in more efficient and effective training, avoiding the trial and error shotgun approach that can lead to plateaus or worse to injury.

I prefer that athletes use Heart Rate and GPS or Power on the run and Power and HR on the bike. My approach is quantitative and to provide the best service I need accurate and unbiased data.
