Subject: Avg. Cost of a triathlon coach

What is the average cost per month of your triathlon coach?  I want them to have contact with me and be able to critique me.  Not looking for an online coach.  Is 200 a month high or is that average. I've seen some that are 400 a month.  I just need workouts, critique, race plan, etc...  Also someone who can adjust my training depending on improvements, or daily life, etc...

Thanks

I pay $125 / month - see my coach once a week at a coached bike workout and sit down and discuss training plans formally once per month.

some coaches go by race, so you might pay them a fixed amount for training for a HIM, for example.

That has been for me around $300 - $400, for about 12-14 weeks.

I checked a local coach's site, her pricing is $225/month for tri training.

My guess is that is probably typical...but varies.

The one on one critique is where the money starts adding up. Without that requirement, you're in the 75-500 dollar range. Tons and Tons of options around a 100 bucks.

Finding a coached swim workout may be an option but 1 on 1 can get costly.

I pay $260/month.  That includes 4 1-on-1 workout sessions per month.  Also includes training plan, access to call/email him anytime with questions, and includes some group workouts.

I pay $50 a month to a local swim coach who is newly USAT cert.  I also pay $70 for her swim class which runs every saturday for about 10 weeks.  So I get one on one stroke assessment during swim class and she changes my workouts to address those swim issues.  Other than that we mostly e-mail.  I do see her at the kids club swim practices, but I make a point of not asking her questions during that time.  Since she is new it is a real great deal for me IMHO.

USAT did a survey and the average cost comes in somewhere around $160/month.  All depends really on what you're looking for and where you live.

My coach is $110/month. I pay $280 for the Tri club membership per year. I pay $240 for master's swim 3 times per week for 7 months. I pay $50 for a running membership at U of M indoor track.

With all that I get 3 swims per week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday), 2 indoor track sessions (Tuesday/Thursday), 3 indoor bike workouts (Saturday/Monday/Wednesday). I can email him at anytime and we have set up a google document where he posts the workouts for the month and I check the workouts off. I add comments, HR, speed, distance, etc and he adjusts the workouts accordingly. We also meet at least once a month at his house for updates, questions, direction, etc.

I feel that I am getting exceptional value for my money.

I pay my coach in BBQ.  Mesquite-smoked turkey seems to be a hit.  He's dropped my swim time by a third.

I dropped ~40 min in my 70.3 from 5:40 to 5:03, around 20 minutes in my olympic to a 2:22 and around 15  minutes in my Sprint to a 1:18(really hilly). Working with him less than a year.
