What our athletes have to say

Derek has helped me improve as a triathlete in many different ways. Not only did he focus on my weaknesses, but also scrutinized my strengths. He helped me fine tune my running, swimming, and biking as well as helping with recovery and strength. He never shies away from getting in the pool or riding by you to help refine every aspect of your training. I have gained so much from him as an athlete and have results to prove it!

Derek doesn’t take shortcuts in his coaching. Instead of approaching me like a number or prescribing the same 12 week plan he does to every athlete, he helped me define goals and provides feedback daily, tailoring my training week by week. My triathlon training under Derek has been more efficient, effective, and personalized than it has been with any other coach.

My experience with Victory Tri has been nothing short of exemplary. The program has successfully guided me to strong finishes in races of all lengths, from sprints to half Ironman, in a way that best fit my schedule and requirements. I am often training in less than ideal environments, and the coaching provided always takes into account my current capabilities and limitations. No other training regimen will give you the level of personal tailoring and attention to detail that you will find in training with Victory Tri!

Derek takes a personalized and holistic approach to training his athletes, working around life constraints. He will train your weakness and build on your strengths. And in addition to training he has the race experience to share with others.
