Half the battle of being a self-coached athlete is organizing your weekly workouts so you arrive at the start of a race prepared. D3 has taken care of that struggle! Utilizing his twenty three years of coaching experience, D3 Head Coach Mike Ricci has taken his best coaching formulas and crafted a collection of training plans that will help you arrive at the start line of your key event prepared, energized and ready to hit your target goals! These plans are designed for the age group triathlete who juggles a busy life with work, family and other responsibilities, yet wants to be able to incorporate his/her own goals and passion for triathlon on a consistent basis. Mike’s plans have set thousands of athletes up for success, many of who keep coming back for more!
With choices ranging from ability to distance to number-of-weeks-to-the-event, we leave no stone unturned in trying to help you reach your goals.
D3 Tri Squad
If you like the idea of a pre-built plan, but would prefer some interaction with a coach, the D3 Tri Squad is a cost-effective option for getting both!
A top benefit of the Squad is a personalized Annual Training Plan! A D3 coach will recommend a sequence of training plans based on your stated goal, strengths and weaknesses and help you organize your training so you are prepared for your big event! Members of the Squad are supported by a coach throughout their 6, 9 or 12 month membership through a private Facebook Group where questions and camaraderie are the theme.
Plus, members get a D3 race kit!
If you’re serious about improving your technique and swimming with more confidence, and yes, even faster, our coaching team is ready to meet you at the pool! Even top-tier swimmers have trouble understanding what they’re doing in the water without the feedback of video analysis or from a private lesson. At D3 Multisport we’ve got the tools and trained eye to help you see exactly what you’re doing in the water, and identify what changes will give you the most benefit!
Have questions related to your training or racing ? Need to dial in your nutrition? What about training with power or HR? In a slump and wonder whether you should push through or if you might be on the verge of overtraining? Wish you could just sit down with an experienced coach and get the answers you need? The coaching staff at D3 is here and ready to help!
Training Camps and Clinics
We offer two specific opportunities where you will receive hands-on instruction and gain a huge confidence boost in your training and race objectives. The talented D3 Multisport coaching team has one goal – you! With training camps in both Tucson and Boulder, their coaching skills will help you prepare for a season of racing. The camps are timed perfectly! Tucson, in March, is an excellent spring board to clear out your winter training and transition into early season racing. Boulder, in June, is spot-on for athletes racing IM Boulder, or any other fall or early winter, long distance races. Each camp has carefully crafted training sessions complimented with information about race day strategy, pacing, nutrition essentials and more.
If you’re into endurance events at any level, a sound nutrition & hydration regime is just as important as the right training plan! What you choose to eat and drink and the timing of each can have a direct and profound impact on not only how you feel today , but the quality of your workout two days from now and how well your body holds up over the season! Set up a consultation with D3’s Certified Nutritionist and make sure when you head out the door for for your next workout or race you’re literally fueled for success!
