Group Coaching

Tier 2 - Group Coaching

What are the benefits of the SLAP Group Coaching? Why choose a SLAP coach versus training on your own, using a long-distance coach, or trying to follow a generic program on the internet?

We strive to make our professional coaching services accessible to everyone. Triathlon is not the cheapest sport…but it IS a sport that is exponentially enhanced by working with someone who can answer your questions, give you feedback, offer guidance, and hold you accountable on the way to achieving your goals. The SLAP Tier 2 Group Coaching is an affordable way to access all of these things…LOCALLY! Not only do you get access to an incredible team of coaches…but you become part of an amazing team of athletes that will also fully support you along the way!

Frequently asked questions

The monthly Group Coaching fee includes everything you need to find success at an affordable price: unlimited communication with your coach, group training sessions (SLAP practice fee is included), pre-planned workouts updated weekly on Training Peaks to fit with your life schedule, pre-race planning and post-race recaps, a SLAP Coach on-site at many local events, discounts at Wheel Works, and SO much more!
We do not require a minimum duration. We suggest that you start at least 5 months before a 70.3, and at least 3 months before an Olympic distance race. You can cancel your monthly Group Coaching at any time. Your auto-payments will be cancelled at the conclusion of your event (discuss with your coach the option to continue with the program for a future group event).
Perfect! This is a great coaching option for you! You will benefit from the personal leadership and direction as you prepare for your first long-distance race. The entire SLAP Coaching staff will be at your disposal for questions and feedback during your journey!
No problem…we can still help you prepare for your event. If the date and distance are similar to a current event, we will match you up with other SLAPPERS. If your event does not line up with a current event on our list (or if you event is a full Ironman), please check out the Personal Coaching (Tier 1) options.
We are honored to have Coach Todd Shellenberger and Coach Beth Baumgarten working with the Group Coaching (Tier 2) athletes. Send us a message expressing your interest and we will connect you with the coaches for a personal phone call to see which one is the best fit for YOU!
