What our athletes have to say

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.

Training in the military taught me to push through pain, which is a valuable skill, but wasn’t very helpful if I was injured on race day. Victory Tri’s measured approach taught me to manage pain and now I am actually able perform on race day instead of survive.

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!

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.
