Mission Plans - Triathlon Coaching & Ironman Training

All of the QT2 triathlon training services utilize proven principles developed from a quantitative perspective. Whether you are interested in One-on-One coaching, a Mission Plan, or a Season Plan, our world class training philosophies, such as "critical volume" and "trailing volume" are included. Our athletes will tell you that our attention to detail is our greatest asset.


Triathlon Mission Plans:

Per Plan - $45 per week, OR
Annual Membership - $155 per 28 day period

An individualized training program will be created to address your athletic goals for a specific race or season, and fit your personal training volume, and planned races. This option is an ideal alternative to our One-on-One coaching, providing a structured plan and group to help stay motivated. All mission plans include the same proven QT2 training protocols that have produced Ironman champions and countless Kona qualifiers. Programs can consist of a full season plan (52 weeks) or as little as 6-12 weeks to train for a particular goal race.
