As a doctor I have in depth knowledge of human anatomy, neurology, endocrinology, physiology and the body’s biochemical pathways. This gives me a unique perspective that augments my Ironman Certified Coach training. Any coach can regurgitate course material learned during certification. But my advanced degree gives me a level of understanding beyond what the average endurance athlete needs. My services range from basic training plans to complete coaching with thorough assessment and analysis.
As a coach I have to integrate this sport into my client’s life instead of compromising it. Every athlete has different needs and life demands. A proper balance with the right training unique to each athlete will lead to success. The plan must be adaptable to personal demands and ongoing assessments. Physiological, psychological and/or sociological factors can affect an athlete’s training. Furthermore the human body frequently has structural imbalances that predisposes it to injury. These imbalances can often be corrected by incorporating an athlete centric concept using various forms of training and paying particular attention to limiters identified in a thorough functional analysis of the athlete. My training programs safely and properly implement a systematic progression that maximizes results while avoiding injury or over-training. This is where a coach’s responsibilities are key. Careful application of the supercompensation theory with appropriate volume progression must always be at the forefront to get the desired response. Time intervals between successive workouts should be carefully designed so that all the undesirable traces of the previous workout are overcome but the progressive fitness improvement is preserved. A well designed training program with proper analysis of data will lead to success and create a great experience for the athlete.
