USAT Coaching Clinic - list of presentations - powermultisport.com

I will blog more about the clinic in the next couple of weeks but I will give you brief run down. The clinic was a full two and half days. The information was valuable. It reinforced a lot of my beliefs and may have taught me a few things. One of the most valuable parts of the clinic was being in a room with 30 like minded people. Just sharing stories and experiences was worth the trip.

There were presentations on following:
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Traditional Nutritional Strategies
  • Triathlon Specific Strength Training
  • Running Skills and Economy Training
  • Sports Psychology and Mental Skills
  • Swimming Skills and Economy Training
  • Dynamics of Coaching Youth and juniors
  • Cycling Skills
  • Triathlon Specific Training and Key Workouts
  • Periodization and Planning
As a first step to being a certified triathlon coach it was invaluable. In addition it provides coaching network and affordable insurance.




I have been putting together a coaching website – www.powermultisport.com/ – please let me know what you think.

Make sure you check out that ‘fat James’ picture – www.powermultisport.com/coach-james  .

  1. Mental skills....Can't wait until you cover that topic. I just ordered some books about mental training for endurance athletes.

    "you've come a long way baby" congrats for turning your life around and the commitment to healthy living.

  2. Great job James. I wish you the best of luck in this endeavor. You have a vast amount of knowledge and understanding of the sport. And tell your story over and over. Part of being a tri coach is selling dreams and hopes. People want to have success like you did. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you. I am sure we can find a way to collaborate.

    You ALWAYS give great advice and are always spot on. It was only a matter of time before I knew you would end up being a coach :)

  5. Wow man quite the change.

    I think a move towards coaching is a smart move. First off, it's a dream job and thus your personal and preffesional muse is fulfilled. And the sport is growing so quickly getting clients won't be a problem. So you'll make some money which is never bad. Perfect.

  7. It sure is kinda nice to see the blueprint in front of me. You and I have a lot in common and it kinda cracks me up. I like what you are working with. I think your website demonstrates a low key approach to hard work, without any intimidation. I think newbies are easily afraid. Well done. I am looking forward to hearing about how things go. I would like updates on the number of clients you get.
