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.

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!
