International Triathlon Coaching Association Blog Now Features Certified Coaches and Experts on Triathlon Training

Fri, 2 Mar 2012 20:45:29 EST

Training for a triathlon, the triad athletic disciplines of swimming, biking and running, involves more time, effort and focus than a single-sport race or event. To help more triathletes from coast to coast train, compete and succeed, the International Triathlon Coaching Association (ITCA) Program's blog now features expert advice from a variety of certified triathlon coaches. The blog is available online at http://triathloncoachcertification.com/.

The triathlon-focused blogs cover topics including nutrition for athletes before and during events, performance testing and mental training, sleep and performance, muscular strength and endurance, brick workouts (combing two or more of the disciplines) and much more. The blogs are provided by triathlon coaches who have been certified by the ISTA, which provides online triathlon coach training as well as career development for current coaches, personal trainers and others with a passion for triathlons.

'Triathlons continue to skyrocket in popularity, thanks to their fun, adventure and challenge, so we wanted to provide the best expert resources when it comes to preparing for and succeeding in races,' said John Spencer Ellis, founder of the International Triathlon Coaching Association and its certification program. 'The more you know and the more you prepare, the more likely you are to succeed in a triathlon, whether it's a super sprint or an Ironman.'

The ITCA Program, approved for continuing education by USA Triathlon (USAT) and other certifying bodies, also features a new Facebook group with the latest triathlon information at https://www.facebook.com/groups/170987673613/.

The ITCA Coaching Program is a 100 percent online, self-paced certification that provides a turnkey, blueprint for triathlon coaching success. The program is delivered in 16 modules over 32 days.
