What our athletes have to say

Victory Tri coaching made me not only a more dedicated and competent triathlete, but a healthier and smarter athlete and professional. The training is tailored to fit your goals and emphasizes fundamentals, strength, and injury prevention. Victory Tri takes the guesswork out of triathlon, so that races become pure enjoyment of all the progress you’ve made. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned athlete, Victory Tri is the coach that you want. He helped me achieve my goals in starting to become a competitive racer as well as enlisting in the Army.

The value of his coaching is incredible! Derek creates the thoughtful and deliberate training plan you need to reach your goals.  I have learned so much from his draft-legal expertise and I could not imagine a better coach to fit my busy lifestyle.  I’m forever grateful for the care and mentorship he has provided in my Triathlon journey!

Derek has been a fantastic coach. He’s helped me with specific, finicky injuries, shaved a ton of time off my swim, and really focused my training. I’m still active duty and he was able to provide consistent, relevant training while I was underway.

The coaching from Derek at Victory Tri has been instrumental in achieving my personal and professional fitness goals in the past year and a half. Derek’s expertise, background, and flexibility have allowed me to achieve PRs in several marathons and open water swims while building long-term resiliency and preventing injury. Despite my unpredictable schedule, Derek always goes out of his way to tailor workouts to my schedule and goals in order to maximize time and performance.
