Coach Details

Alan Gulledge
TriFit Evolution, LLC
Arlington, VA

I offer coaching services to both local and out-of-state athletes, and work with everyone from first time novice traitihletes to experiecned Ironman finishers and Boston marathon runners. All monthly coaching clients receive a complimentary fitness and goal-setting consultation included with the performance package. TFE athletes enjoy the following services:

  • Run gait analysis: This is our starting point. Analyzing running gait can improve efficiency in every runner and triathlete. This process includes video analysis of your stride to help you understand your running mechanics. After breaking down your gait, we can outline a series of drills to improve stride, increase cadence, and help you become a more efficient runner.
  • Triathlete swim stroke analysis: Swimming is the most technical of all. Many find swim drills confusing. Through filming your performance both above and below the water, we can figure out how to improve your stroke and kick. TFE will show you how to reduce drag, improve body positioning, and increase power through your stroke.
  • Custom training plans updated weekly: TFE will customize a training plan to help magnify your strengths and mitigate your weaknesses. Using Training Peaks, a web-based training plan delivery system, TFE can adapt plans on a weekly basis to conform to your unique training needs. Unlike other training plans, we can include our sport-specific resistance training to improve performance, allowing you to go faster, finish stronger, and avoid injury.
  • Monthly in-person training session with Alan: Unlike most other coaching services, Alan meets with you one-on-one every month to assess progress and work on deficiencies. Wether that that be focusing on running form, pool work, riding together, strength training, or nutrition and race planing consultations, you are able to work on specific elements of your performance on a monthly basis.
  • Constant contact with me: Unlike other coaches and training plans, becoming a TFE Training client allows you to have unlimited email and phone access. Have a race question the night before an event? Don't hesitate to pick up the phone.

Having discoverd traithlon in my late 20s, I had to "learn" triahtlon later in life, and appreciate the value of a good coach- I had a few over the years that have helped me immensely. A good coach can help will all aspects of trainer, from developing custom training plans to evaluating run techinique to fine tuning nutrition. I've developed myself to help meet all those challenges and more with my athletes.
