Get ready for your goal race with the most comprehensive and well-prepared training plans on the market

Triathlon Training Plan - Scientific Triathlon

I provide ready-made training plans that I believe are the best value-for-money plans put together so far in the entire triathlon industry (I know because I've bought so many of them myself). A select few plans are available now, and more will be added soon.


I also offer customised training plans tailored to your abilities, goals and constraints. 

PROVEN TRAINING PLANS

Because I spend a slightly ridiculous amount of time making sure that each plan I create is the best plan out there (yes, I want these plans to be the best in the entire world!), it's slow going getting them up here. So far I've only completed one training plan, but more will be added as I complete them. Send me an email if you want to learn more about what training plans are scheduled to be released when. 

My training plans aren't your typical run-of-the-mill plans. I have gone to great  lengths to ensure not only that these plans are progressing at an appropriate rate and have enough recovery built in (both of which are elements I've found to be missing in many other plans). But I've also made sure to within the plans teach you exactly how to get the most out of them.


Which sessions are the key sessions of this week? What's the purpose of this training phase? What do I do if I can't do the open-water swim in the schedule and have to do a pool swim instead?


These types of questions that my plans can answer. When you buy a plan you do not get just a calendar with random workout. Each plan is a massive PDF-document that is well structured so you can just quickly look at your plan overview, or dig into workout details, or check the general information and advice quickly and easily.

TESTIMONIALS

Mikael's program provides great insight to training and what works well to improve performance – that I don’t have myself!


Sarah Firth, 47, United Kingdom

The training plan was varied and very clear. I've benefited a lot from getting consistency and progression into my training.

CUSTOMISED TRAINING PLANS

I also offer customised training plans that I make from scratch after learning all about your training history, target race and goal, life constraints and so on.


I create the training plan with the same kind of commitment, attention to detail and personalisation I would if you were one of my individual coaching client. The only difference is that I don't monitor your progress and provide feedback and advice during your training, and we don't have coaching calls. That said, some athletes have combined a customised training plan with a couple of consultations, to get some of these additional coaching benefits without the monthly commitment. 


If you're not ready to invest in one-on-one coaching, but you want a plan that's tailored for you specifically in order to improve as much as possible, then a customised plan is the right choice for you. 


I suggest that you reach out well ahead of time to me. The recommended plan duration is 16-26 weeks for half or full distance triathlons, and 8-20 weeks for sprint and Olympic distance races.


PRICING

The price for a customised training plan depends on its duration. The cost per week is 16 €. The entire training plan is paid for up front. The minimum customised plan duration is 8 weeks.


HOW TO GET STARTED

The best way to get started with a consultation is to email me and let me know you are interested in getting a customised training plan. If you have further questions, I will answer them, If you want to proceed, I'll then send you a questionnaire about your goal race, your training history, and so on, to be able to create a customised plan for you. 

MY COACHING APPROACH AND EXPERIENCE

I am a Finntriathlon level II coach. I have coached athletes since 2013, when I started coaching running, and marathoning in particular. Since then, and especially with my own switch from running to triathlon as an athlete, my interest has shifted to triathlon. I now coach primarily  triathletes, but with a few runners and swimrunners in the mix as well. I quit my job in medical engineering in August 2017 to take my triathlon coaching full time. 


My coaching approach is that every athlete has very individual needs, so I adapt my coaching to fit you as an individual. If I would describe my three most important traits as a coach it's committed, practical, scientific and data-driven.

I'm committed to your success, and spend a huge amount of time on every athlete I coach. I'm very practical in that I realise that you need to fit your training in around plenty of other obligations, and in that I think most training gains can be made with a rather simplistic approach to training. Many fancy-looking tactics and methods will only bring you marginal gains, but down-to-earth, practical training will give you all of your big wins.


I'm scientific in that I follow all new research constantly, but more importantly, I know how to importantly and when to bring out the old BS-filter. I'm data-driven in the way that I plan and analyze your training. That's why we're using Training Peaks, and for some athletes tools like WKO4, Best Bike Split, and so on.


A data-driven approach is a massive advantage for both beginners and advanced triathletes. With all the advances in science and technology, I believe triathletes and coaches not adopting a data-driven approach will soon be left behind.
