Inspiring, challenging, fulfilling.

 

These are just some of the words that come to mind when I think of what training with Michelle has been like.

 

I started competing in triathlons two years ago and was self coached up until I met Michelle, November of 2009. Since then she’s been coaching me for my first half Ironman (Honu 2010) and I couldn’t be doing it with out her. It’s one thing to go out run, ride, swim, and then race. It’s another to train to race.

 

Michelle’s experience in the sport shows. I know I’m in good hands. She has already been (and then some) to the tough mental and physical places I’m going and is willing, ready, and able to get me through it.  She’s totally stoked on seeing her athletes succeed and that energy of hers is infectious! It’s like she’s my triathlon mother. She’s there to: guide me, listen to and love me through some tough spots, celebrate my successes, and most importantly tell me when to suck it up and get it done.

​Taryn has proven to have the technical skills a coach needs – the background, experience and knowledge necessary to design an effective training plan, improve form and prepare athletes like me to reach their goals. She consistently educates me, responds to my questions and shares articles, videos and feedback that contribute to my progress. She adapts each week’s workouts to balance my personal schedule, athletic strengths, weaknesses and overall goals. She is extremely knowledgeable in many areas from race planning to swim technique to nutrition.

However, what differentiates excellent coaches from the rest are softer skills inherent in those who can lead, inspire and influence. Coaches like Taryn have these personality attributes. She is well known in our local triathlon and running community for her unwavering positivity, dedication to the sport and willingness to help others.

I have been training with Michelle since May of 2014. I learned about Michelle online and heard great things about her coaching from other tri friends. I decided that I should give her a shot since I wanted to up my game and thought personal coaching would help. Michelle has helped me develop a passion for the sport that will remain with me for the rest of my life, and has improved my ability tremendously in the 2.5 years that we have worked together. In this period she has prepared me for three full IMs, eight half IMs, a slew of marathons, swim races and Oly/sprint tris.

Recently, Michelle has shown great patience, tenacity and creativity in training me in some of the most challenging, inhospitable and unideal environments (Baghdad, Iraq for a year and now Port-au-Prince, Haiti for the past eight months). In these locations, where I can no longer can train with a group or ride my bike on the road, and frequently must swim in 25yd (or smaller) hotel pools, Michelle regularly crafts workouts for me that have not only made me physically stronger, but mentally tougher as well.

Michelle has been extremely understanding since I have had to deal with a Category 4 hurricane in Haiti in October, which shook up my training schedule (and my spirits); she continued to virtually nudge / take out the whip on me to ensure that I was staying on track and not fall into a ‘blob’ state, which would have been very easy to do! Best of all, I now consider Michelle not only a coach, but a dear friend. She is brilliant on so many levels, and a true gem for the sport of triathlon. A total inspiration and a wonderful human being!

Michelle stays update with the latest triathlon news, has years of experience coaching and has seen what works and what doesn’t. She is REALLY invested in each of her athletes and really works with each athlete as an individual.  Michelle gives detailed feedback on TrainingPeaks within hours of uploading a workout.  I very much appreciate the personal attention.  Michelle pushes me to work hard and also to take it easy when I need to.  For the six months I have been working with Michelle, I have earned 1st female overall 3 out of 4 races I’ve competed in (the fourth race I got a flat tire!). I could not be happier with my decision to switch over to Michelle and I am looking forward to what the 2017 triathlon season has in store for us!
