Services And Pricing

TeamBSC Triathlon Coaching offers you comprehensive and professional coaching services that are individually tailored to meet your needs.

Before we get started, you can expect to have an initial consultation, either in person or over the phone, where we will talk specifically about your experience in sport, your history, your goals, and your other life commitments. Then, after doing some sport specific testing to find your baselines, I will create individualized weekly training plans for you to follow. Through regular email and phone communication we will be assessing your progress and altering your future training accordingly, putting you in the best possible position to achieve your goals.

I am available on an unlimited basis to help you determine your seasonal racing schedule, including picking appropriate tune-up races along the way to your ‘A’ Goal race(s). I am also happy to consult with you about training and race day nutrition, pacing strategies, injury prevention, time management, and of course, your mindset. I believe it is possible to put it all together!

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!

Not only am I appreciative to Michelle for designing workouts that fit my needs, but she also for helping me realize the potential that I didn’t think was within me.  I was regularly pushed beyond what I would consider a comfort zone, and always came out just fine on the other side! With TeamBSC, I found a training plan tailor fit to me.  Between custom heart rate zones which shifted during my build and power numbers which increased throughout the season, I really felt as though I was getting something that was unique to me.

​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.

In preparation for IMAZ, I wanted to drop you a short email, as I know my mind will be elsewhere next week.  This being my “virgin” voyage to an IM start….I thought I’d start with the following, as it captures what I’ve done since June 4, 2012.

 

  • BIKE – 2,250 miles
  • RUN – 450 miles
  • SWIM – 87 miles
  • BEING PREPARAED FOR YOUR 1st IRONMAN……PRICELESS!

 

I continually go back in my mind and remember when I fist met you during your spring IM Camp in AZ.  I was in awe of all the things you discussed that I had no clue about (most of which I still don’t know much about ;).  I started by stating I would love to have you as my coach someday……not because you were what I wanted, but rather you were what I needed.  Well, in hindsight I could not have been more WRONG!  You’re exactly what I wanted and needed!  I asked that you provide me with a “plug-n-play” strategy/training plan because of my work & family commitments.  You did that with flying colors!  People around me told me you were tough (BSC didn’t derive out of nowhere).  Well, I don’t have that viewpoint.  I don’t think you’re tough at all…I actually think you got the “best” of what I had to offer and you obtained that in the most supportive manner.  Your words of encouragement and positive reinforcement are second to none and vastly appreciated.

 

Needless to say, I couldn’t have done this without your coaching….both mentally & physically.  Of course, it also helps to have a loving & supportive wife who has “been there & done that.”  The journey has been an awesome experience and I have you to thank for that.  I sing your praises every chance I get and look forward to the future that lies ahead.  I’m not sure what that will entail at this point, but rest assured if there is another IM in my future there’s no one I want to travel the road with other than YOU!

 

Thank you gain for everything!  I know this email comes a bit prematurely, but I didn’t want to wait until the last moment to tell you how I feel.
