Years of coaching experience goes into the design of our plans! USA Triathlon Elite Coach Mike Ricci has designed these plans with his twenty years of coaching expertise.

Purchase of this plan includes our 'Training Terminology' and our "How to use Intensity" documents. You’ll also have access to our online videos for run drills. We leave no stone unturned in trying to get you to reach your goals!
During the training plan, there is testing every few weeks throughout the program to test your fitness level so you can re-adjust your HR Zones if you train with a HRM. If you don’t train with a HRM, that’s fine as the tests are still good training and you can measure improvement based on time.

Most importantly, purchase of this program includes complimentary access to the D3 Forum at any time for questions that you may have about this plan.
