Coach Bio

Mikael always had a great interest for science and understanding the mechanisms behind endurance performance. However, Mikael strongly believes that the science of training or coaching is only one input to decision-making. The other inputs include the athlete’s feedback and experience, as well as the coach’s anecdotal knowledge and experience. Mikael emphasises the importance of coach-athlete communication. Without great communication, a coaching relationship can never be fully successful.

Mikael is the Founder and Head Coach of Scientific Triathlon and host of That Triathlon Show.

Mikael always had a great interest for science and understanding the mechanisms behind endurance performance. If we understand performance at a physiological and biomechanical level, training to improve performance becomes much easier. 

However, Mikael strongly believes that the science of training or coaching is only one input to coaching decision-making. The other inputs include the athlete’s feedback and experience, as well as the coach’s anecdotal knowledge and experience.

Mikael enjoys the challenge of finding the balance of getting the biggest possible return-on-investment on training time. This requires carefully considering multiple inputs including the athlete's feedback, objectively measured training response and performance, factors external to training like work and family, and using these inputs to always try to improve training planning. Never believing you have the best answer is the key to keep improving.

More than anything, Mikael emphasises the importance of coach-athlete communication. Without great communication, a coaching relationship can never be fully successful. Triathlon is about so much more than just numbers in a training log. It's also about psychology, confidence, and even productivity and time management. And it is only through ongoing, open and honest conversations between the coach and the athlete that an athlete can reach their peak performance.
