Coach Details

Rob Barlow
Foundry Multisport
Arlington, VA

We're passionate about helping athletes achieve individual endurance sport goals. Whether you are interested in improving general fitness or qualifying for a World Championship, Foundry Multisport has a proven system to aid you in achieving your goal.

Our coaches have diverse backgrounds that support the our mission; additionally, our individual career fields lend themselves to making continuous improvements in the coaching process through the use of data and analytics. This data driven approach, when applied to the athlete, is exceptionally efficient in maximizing performance.

We thrive by using our unique backgrounds to supplement each other. This synergistic approach is never more prevalent than in the performance of our athletes.

Our passion is found in endurance sports and helping others succeed through our knowledge, structure, experience and leadership abilities.

As a USAT certified coach for the past 7 years, I've worked with beginners to World Championship athletes.  The goal is to assist our clients to be the very best that they can be while still maintaining a "normal" life.  We take the time to listen to our athletes; we need to understand what motivates them and where their strengths and weaknesses lie.  Through testing and data analytics, we can determine how to guide them to a successful triathlon execution.  Our approach is very direct; we don't believe in prescribing workouts "just because everyone else is doing it."  You do the work that you need to do in order to meet your goals while still carrying out your responsibilities to your family and your career.  In doing so, we've earned a lot of respect as we value the individual as a whole person, not simply as an athlete.

Coaching Strengths

I believe that triathletes should train their whole body, not just their legs. The best triathletes have not only leg speed and endurance but also solid core and upper body strength. Total body fitness leads to better race times and fewer injuries.

How Can I Help You

As a swimming, cycling and USAT Level I certified triathlon coach, I have developed a reputation for demanding the best from my athletes while always giving them my best in return. I look forward to spending more of my time as a coach and mentor to athletes looking to excel and push themselves to new levels of performance.
