  • What is coaching?
    Coaching is an art to develop athletes from their current state to their goals and dreams. It is guidance provided in terms of sports science by an expert which has to be executed by the athlete. Coaching is more of listening to give solutions than just instructing. This has to be both ways between athlete and coach. It doesn’t restrict to only Training Plans and Socialization in the form of group activities. Coaching has a lot to do with feedback systems and communication.
  • How does online coaching work?
    In today’s expanding world, it is difficult to find the right coach within your vicinity most of the time. Online coaching exposes you to a variety of options worldwide. It is the training system that allows you to train at your convenience with access to a coach. You select your place and time to train and do the workouts. You get your workouts in a digital format with all the necessary descriptions & and demonstrations to make you understand. Athletes and Coaches communicate using preferred digital modes available and set within the coaching system. To perform any technique analysis, athletes shoot videos as instructed and share them for coaches to analyze and send inputs/instructions to act on.
  • What is your approach to training?
    I believe a lot in understanding my athletes before I start planning for them. So my process consists of extensive analysis initially where I try to gain as much information as I can to help understand the lifestyle, current health, sporting history, and many more things. Once analysis is done, athletes are taken through extensive baseline tests to understand their current fitness. Post which the plan is curated and delivered to athletes weekly where weekly analysis is performed by the coach and feedback is provided based on that. I always put health first before training because unless you have good health, you can’t achieve anything in performance. Your technique is analyzed quarterly. At the appropriate stage when I feel some coaching is needed for an athlete on a certain topic, I don’t see whether calls are offered as a part of the program or not if that is needed for my athletes. Another factor I emphasized during my training is movement quality.
  • What's Your Communication and Feedback Process?
    Athletes receive feedback weekly upon analysis of the uploaded data to let them know where they need to work more and take action to make their execution more effective. This feedback is provided either via Video messaging or a quick 30-minute call as per the use case. Regular communication happens via Telegram, Email, or WhatsApp whichever is preferred.
  • What is the location and schedule of monthly group sessions with a 1-1 coaching program?

  • What are the minimum requirements to start triathlon training?
    You should at least have the ability to perform the following individually but at a stretch: 400 meters proper freestyle 15 mins cycling 15 mins run
  • What If I don’t know how to swim but still want to attempt triathlon?
    You can surely do that, however, your first focus should be learning to swim. Without knowing how to swim, it is difficult for you to build triathlon endurance as well as get exposure to Open waters since you are not confident in your freestyle stroke in the pool in this case.
  • What's your experience and background?
    I have been breathing endurance sports science for more than 8 years now after investing 5 odd years of my life into educating myself and research in the field thereafter. I am fortunate enough to have my extraordinary mentors with whom I also had opportunities to work with some of the finest professionals in the industry across borders.

  • How do you tailor training plans to Individuals?
    By performing detailed individual analysis I first understand the athlete and his/her surroundings as well as conditions with the history well. This is then followed by baseline fitness testing is used to understand their current fitness. Combinedly all this information is used to curate the program for them, having the right intensity and volume of the training which is around their existing lifestyle.
  • What do you envision for your Athletes?
    I envision that all my athletes train and race injury-free by keeping health at the core of their training up the ladder.
  • What if I quit between 3/6/12 months?
    Ensure that you are joining after giving thought to all possible aspects. There will be no refund if you decide to quit after joining.
  • What if I have less time available?
    Don’t worry, inputs are taken to plan your training based on your lifestyle so you don’t feel it a burden to exercise even if you have less time availability. You will be also communicated about the minimum time requirements according to your training goals before starting.
  • What If I need time off for “non-medical reasons?"
    Consistency in training will only bring results. If you train for a year and then take a break of 3-4 months, you will lose your fitness and have to restart from the beginning or at least go back to a point. This is a waste of your efforts and time you already have invested. In your time off, to keep your fitness levels maintained, your plan will be discussed with you and adjusted as per your preferences to the activities/tools/time if you prefer to do so.
  • Do you provide a nutrition plan?
    My scope of work is limited to exercise regimes. However, I do provide nutrition guidance based on the nutrition approach for pre, during, and post-race nutrition along with the daily food. The approach will not state the specific foods or quantity of them but will teach you how should you eat, when to eat, etc.
