With all the athletes I coach, I have three goals:
-Improve the athlete's performance
-Increase the motivation and enjoyment the athlete gets from the sport
-Provide 100% personalized feedback, mentoring and support. Essentially, teach my athletes to be able to self-coach, should they so desire.
I have coached complete beginners to finish their first sprint and Olympic triathlons, and helped intermediate and advanced triathletes to reach performance goals and place in their age-groups.
My name is Mikael Eriksson, and I live in Helsinki, Finland. By day, I work as an engineer, but I'm taking my coaching full-time within the next couple of months. I might already have done that by the time you read this, in which case I've also relocated to Lisbon, Portugal.
I've coached athletes for several years, and get as much enjoyment out of my athletes' PRs, Boston qualifiers, and other successes as I get from my own. I'm a Finntriathlon level II certified coach.
My philosophy is that every athlete has very individual needs, so I adapt my coaching to fit you as an individual. If I would describe my three most important traits as a coach it's dedicated, practical, and data-driven.
I'm dedicated to your success and spend a huge amount of time on every athlete I coach.
I'm very practical in that I realize that you need to fit your training in around plenty of other obligations, and in that I think most training gains can be made with a rather simplistic approach to training.
Many fancy-looking tactics and methods will only bring you marginal gains, but down-to-earth, practical training will give you all of your big wins.
I'm data-driven in the way that I plan and analyze your training. That's why we're using Training Peaks. A data-driven approach is a massive advantage for both beginners and advanced triathletes. With all the advances in science and technology, I believe triathletes and coaches not adopting a data-driven approach will soon be left behind.
