TrainingPeaks Retail Store is Now Open
Software Executive, 6+ Years racing Triathlon
“TrainingPeaks helps me analyze my critical data, especially on the bike, to make sure that I'm getting the most out of my workouts. I am living proof that you don't need high volumes of training if you are smart about your plan and pay attention to the data. In 2010, I took 14 minutes off of my IM bike PR at IMAZ on a windy day because I had trained with power and used TrainingPeaks' plan and software to analyze my preparation.”
A distance runner since 1980 and a triathlete since 1983, Ian Hersey balances a demanding work and travel schedule as Chief Technology Officer of Attensity with a mission to continue to improve and to test his limits as an endurance athlete. Hersey’s athletic resume includes 23 marathon finishes (eight sub 3:00 and 21 sub 3:10) and ten Ironmans (PR 10:26:28), plus numerous running and multisport races at shorter distances. Preferring quality over quantity in training, Hersey’s lower-volume approach has kept him healthy and consistent over the years. Known for his love of gadgetry and willingness to experiment with new gear and training methods, his biggest joy aside from beating others in his age group is helping friends and teammates improve. Married to Jeanne Cooper, a journalist, travel writer and his biggest supporter, he looks forward to continuing to discover new places while fueling his athletic fire.
