Trail Transformation
Triathlon Coaching

Completing a triathlon can be one of the most rewarding experiences in sport. Training for one, however, can be one of the most challenging. It’s hard to know how much and when to focus on each of the three disciplines, especially if you’re out to crush a PR. 


At Trail Transformation, we offer personalized triathlon coaching for multisport athletes of all abilities. Our balanced approach to triathlon training includes pacing strategies and individualized workouts for each discipline, along with race day and equipment advice. 


With regular speed workouts, the infamous brick workout, easy days, and even rest days, the Trail Transformation coaches work with triathletes to make training sustainable, fun, and smart.

Benefits of working with a Trail Transformation coach

  • Balanced focus on multisport training

  • Tailored strength programs for running, cycling, and swimming

  • Quality over quantity to optimize training  for each discipline

  • Physical therapist backgrounds to help prevent injuries

  • Access to a coach for questions, concerns, and celebrations of success


The energy of the swim. The rhythm of the bike. The adrenaline of the run. These sensations—along with the  feeling of crossing the finish line—are what make triathlons so appealing. But training for three disciplines can feel like a tall order, especially if you’ve never attempted a triathlon before. 
If you’re unsure of where to start, which gear to buy, or how to fuel your body, we can help. Our coaches work with you to design a balanced plan that meets you where you are and, as physical therapists, address the unique mobility and musculoskeletal demands of triathlon training. Together, we’ll push through training plateaus and toward a triumphant finish.

  • Do I need a watch?
    No, Coaches can help guide you through your training based on manually entered activities. However, the added data that can be attained from a watch, will increase the accuracy of your training exponentially.
  • Do I need computer?
    No, our training software can be used directly from your smart phone.
  • How do I pay?
    Trail Transformation accepts all major credit cards, as well as Paypal. Once you start your coaching package, your coach will guide you through our simple payment process.
  • Am I good enough for a coach?
    Absolutely, runners of all abilities benefit from coaching. Coaching not only gives you short term training goals, but also aids in injury prevention.
  • What do I do if I need to change things on the plan?
    Communication is key! Your coach will be happy to help you adjust things in a way that best meets your schedule. The best way to contact your coach is via email, but if it's urgent as in changing a workout the day of, a text message will likely work best.
  • Can you help me with a road race?
    Absolutely, Trail Transformation has coaches that specialize in all areas of running.
  • I’m just getting started in running, is that ok?"
    Yes, the start of running is one of the best times to work with a coach. Often new runners try to do too much too soon and end up getting injured. Another benefit of working with a running coach early, is they can help you break any bad habits before they are truly formed.
  • Can you I be trained for a fast 5k, half marathon, boston qualifier?"
    Yes, both Coach Michael and Coach Tyler have had lots of success on the roads, and know what it takes to perform well in these events.
  • I’m not signed up for a race, I just want to run injury free. Can you help?"
    Yes, running is a life long sport. We're here to help you in any way possible.
  • I’m limited on time, can the program still help?"
    Absolutely, in fact time crunched runners often benefit the most from a training plan. Instead of just getting out the door, our coaches can help you maximize the time you do have.
  • I’m currently injured, can you help me get back?"
    Yes, many of our coaches are Physical Therapists by trade and specialize in helping runners return to the sport they love.
  • I have a question for the coach, how do I reach out?"
    Shoot us an email at
  • Can I request a specific coach?
    Yes, if you have a relationship with a coach already, and are looking to work with them specifically we will do our best to accomodate. That being said, our priority is always making sure that the client gets the coach that is best equipped to help them maximize their training.
  • I don't have a gym membership, how do I do the strength exercises?"
    The coaches will work with you to develop a routine that you can perform at home. The gym opens up opportunities for more exercises, but they can also be done at home.
  • I'm not close to any trails, how do I train for a trail race?"
    Our coaches have ways to simulate the challenges of a trail race. If you can run, then we can train you for a trail race.
