'Podium' Personal Coaching with Coach Dan Bergeson

Coach Dan Bergeson lives in the Chicagoland area and coaches athletes of all levels for running and triathlon.

What is Personal Coaching?  Coach Dan offers personal coaching to athletes looking to improve their race times, taking on a first time endurance event, looking to meet specific race goals, or wanting to be top of the podium! First, it is important to know, do you want Coaching or just a Training Plan?

Coaching is more than a training plan. It offers you the extra assistance you need to figure out exactly what and how to personalize your training plan as you continue towards race day. It provides you with expert personal guidance, assistance, and knowledge to help you meet your goals.

Personal coaching is for any athlete, beginner to pro, slow to the fastest - it is for athletes who want to make the most out of their training and racing! Coaching available for short to long distance triathlon & duathlon; competitive cycling; and short (track) to long (26.2) distance running including Boston Marathon qualifier training.

We offer several options for Personal Coaching - or contact us to discuss your needs!

1) COMPLETE COACHED TRAINING PROGRAM - $225/month - after a 1-1 consultation with Coach Dan, you will receive a personal training schedule for your race, geared to meet your goals. Coach Dan uses training peaks software (free to you) to send you your schedule, generally in 2-week training cycles, workouts are adjusted regularly and you receive a daily email with your specific workout (not a generic plan, a workout to meet your specific race goals).

Are you an athlete with time specific race goals? Have you been struggling to get to the next level? Have you always wanted to be at the top of the podium? Athletes who train, and train well, often need an expertly trained coach to help them navigate through their training. A coach takes the 'what should I do today' and 'is this the right workout to get my to my goals' pressure off the athlete. We work alongside our athletes to help determine where you are in your fitness, power, pace, and how to use that information to improve your times and meet your race goals.

Personal coaching is also great for beginner athletes who need extra attention, motivation, and knowledge of a coach to help them get started and meet their fitness and race goals!
