Ironman Tulsa Coaching and Planning

What our coaches say about this course

Tulsa is NOT flat... ! The rollers on the bike in this area + the heat will challenge most long course racers as they ride through the Ossage Hills. The run leaves Oklahoma State University’s Tulsa campus and make its way through historic vibrant downtown Tulsa to the River Parks Trail System. Runners will have flat and fast views of the Arkansas River as they make their way down past Tulsa’s Gathering Place and back to downtown to finish at the beautiful Guthrie Green. Our Tristar coaches have a plan for being balanced on all three disciplines and hill specificities to ensure a great run off the bike.. — Coach Cliff, TSA Level III Coach

Ironman St George Coaching and Training Plan

What our coaches say about the course

A beautiful and scenic race but not to mention challenging. Those who can rise to the occasion on this tough course will move up the ranks. Not a first timers course but certainly one if you are looking to test your limits. Our Tristar Athletes plan for this course develops the necessary sessions for extensive muscular endurance found both on the bike and run course. Each training block will have regular testing to ensure you are making progress towards your goals and raceday. - Coach Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach

Boulder 70.3 Coaching and Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

The air may be thin but the training is “thick”!  Steady ups and downs on the bike and run course make this course challenging but quick.  Quick? The bike paced well with our Tristar Athletes plan teaches you how to pedal when up to speed and coast when effort is not needed.  Onto the run you will benefit from key sessions we put together that tax your legs when running uphill.  Our coaches know Boulder, live in Boulder and can help you be your best at this course. —Adam Daniels, TSA Level III Coach

Ironman Whistler Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

Plenty of bike climbing and technical descents will challenge athletes on the course. How you pace your day and these hills will dictate what happens on the run. Athletes will want to follow the key mid week Tristar training plan session bricks that simulate the "Pemberton flats" so as not to blow up your run legs. This is one of our favorite courses to coach and dial in your training plan. — Haluk Sarci, TSA Level II Coach

Ironman Wisconsin Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

A very underrated Ironman that is one of our favorite courses as coaches here at Tristar Athletes. The hills keep coming on the bike and can really slow even the strongest of Ironmen and Ironwoman. This Tristar plan calls for vertical elevation training specific to this course with sessions that take you at and beyond the TSS required to ride well on this course. All sessions sync with your devices so you can learn to pace both the bike and run well. Our Raceday nutrition plan and strategy also are a Tristar favorite for this race.. — Adam Daniels, TSA Level III Coach

“Xterra Maui is the ultimate championship race and super challenging. Hard core swim and surf with a hilly and very hot / technical mountain bike make worthy of a World Championship!

New York City Triathlon Coaching and Training Plan

What our coaches say about the race

The New York City Triathlon is an incredible bucket list race that allows you to watch some of the fastest pros in the world go head to head before taking on the course yourself. With a supportive current on the swim, one spectator once noted that a bag of Cheetos made it through the swim course in under 18 minutes :) . The bike course will make you work hard to get you to the run, but it is worth it once you make your way through Central Park. —Coach Kyle Halloran TSA Level I Coach
