Travis M. Sherman   Travis M. Sherman | Podium Finish Training

Thank you for taking time to read my profile and bio.

My coaching focus is primarily on the beginning, intermediate and advanced level athlete that is looking to improve their abilities in cycling, running or triathlon

I specialize in working with athletes that are 20 or older that have a cycling, running or triathlon focus and are looking for someone to guide them in their training via online means or via email with some phone communication.

Thank you for your consideration.



I am a husband, a father of two small girls (3 and 6) as well as a business professional that is still working hard to compete at a high level in bike racing, triathlon and Ironman. I fully understand and can fully relate to the busy and time crunched "family man" or "family woman" that is trying to balance fitness goals with family and work obligations.

My bike racing career began in 1992. Since 1996, I have raced as either a category 2 or a category 1 racer and has seen me racing all across the U.S. and in Belgium.

During my career, there have been serious crashes (bike vs. car or in racing) and injuries that have resulted in several "comebacks" and "starting from zeros".Each time, with God's grace, I have been able to successfully comeback.

I feel that these experiences have given me great insight into what many athletes have experienced and, as a result, I'm looking to share what I've found (the hard way) with others.

In 2010 I was involved in a major crash at the US Pro 100K bicycle race and as a result, I decided to experiment with doing Ironman triathlons. Ironman triathlon is now a second love of mine (behind bicycle racing) and I will be a 6 x finisher in 2016 with a sub10 finishing goal.

I currently split time competing in bike racing as a category 1 racer, triathlons and in Ironman. My passion is to help others achieve their goals and to create a relationship that lasts beyond the "coach and athlete" relationship.

Thank you for reading and for considering me.
