About CTC Newbie Program

What is The TriCollective?

The TriCollective is built to help the self-coached beginner or intermediate athlete get the most out of their training time and cut through all the noise so they can focus on what’s most important. It is weekly guidance and insights, so you know exactly what to be working on throughout the season. You will have monthly access to a coach through group “coffee chats” on Zoom (or in person if schedules allow). 

It is scalable training that meets you where you are at. You will have access to a shared community training plan for triathlon that will grow or shrink based on your goals (i.e. short versus long course). Each season, athletes are entitled to up to two 6-week event-specific plans to help them dial in before race day.

It is loads of resources from gear reviews and recommendations, to discounts, to webinars and trainings. Whether you are new to the sport or looking to level up, there will be something for you.

Who is it for? Why should I sign up?

The  TriCollective is perfect for anyone who wants more guidance and community but doesn’t necessarily want to go all the way into one-on-one coaching. Think of it as self-coaching with a boost and a bunch of friends! If you are just getting started in the triathlon world and need some guidance or have been in it a little while and want to hone your approach, this is perfect for you.
