My communication skills, experience in the sport and wealth of knowledge from training, studying, racing and living with the best athletes and coaches in triathlon are unmatched.

My unrivaled enthusiasm for my athletes and attention to detail deliver outstanding results consistently. 

My mission at T3 [Torsten Triathlon Training] is to develop YOU, the athlete, to achieve your true potential. I create an individual tailored, and result-producing coaching service, that attracts athletes seeking quality, an edge and a forward thinking coaching approach from someone who combines the experience of a (ex) world-class athlete and coach at the same time.

I accomplish this transformation through putting myself into your shoes, communication, years of experience, sports science and a passion for carefully designing the most customized training program, and delivering coaching in a fun, efficient and enjoyable atmosphere.

I believe everything I make, and everything I do must be carefully calibrated for my athlete in order to bring the best out of everyone.
