Tri-K Coaching Philosophy

Consistency in training is the key to success in triathlon and running. A program of consistent and time effective swim, bike and run workouts will get you to your goals.

Keren keeps triathlon training simple by providing tailor made, carefully structured monthly training plans based on perceived effort that will fit into your busy life and give you the results that you are looking for. Your personal training program will be based on a range of Easy, Moderate and Hard efforts over a training week. Swim workouts are based on distance, with bike and run workouts time based.

Training plans can be also based on "numbers" and metrics such as heart rate and power on the bike. FTP and heart rate testing can be performed to set training benchmarks.
