Ken Welsh   Midwest Triathlon Coaching

Preparing athletes to accomplish their triathlon goals. Work with all levels but specialize in Half and Full Ironman distance athletes.

Plans are not “cookie cutter”. I build schedules and monitor progress on a weekly basis. Plan will include specific sessions geared to athlete's experience and fitness levels.

Rates vary based on requirements, but the most popular is $350 for the first month then $200/month. Includes regular interaction on the phone, email and in-person sessions.
