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!
What our athletes have to say
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.
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!
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.
