Coach Details

Geoffrey Chandler
Vanguard Endurance
Indianapolis, IN
I can attest from first hand experience, utilizing a coach can make a big difference in your racing performance. Yes, even coaches have coaches. After 28 years participating in triathlons, it's pretty difficult to come up with a personal best, however this past season after hiring a coach for the first time, I not only had some of my best placings ever, but had several solid PRs including a 58min 40K bike Time Trial resulting in an Indiana State age-group Championship.

I work through Vanguard Endurance and in hiring me, you would receive all the benefits listed below including unlimited calls/email/Skype.  

Your overall plan I develop for you will be based on your goals, athletic background, your build, past injuries, goals, feedback from completed workouts and of utmost importantance, your lifestyle. You won't be getting a cookie cutter plan or even a template, but a fluid, custom training program designed to get the maximum improvement for you.

What you'll see in my "triathlon experience" listed below, is my vast experience in the sport of triathlon, but what you won't see is my passion and excitement I have for the sport. I hope to share this passion with my athletes. 

I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your 2013 goals!
