ironguides provides various triathlon training programs to suit both your goals and budget. All our training plans, whether through our most custom online personal coaching as featured on this page or via our more affordable training plans, follow The Method.
ironguides offers a unique, more organic way of training and racing and, ultimately, living.
Instead of churning out training plans following a generic, zone-based and highly quantitative way that delivers the same old “A, B, C and key races” terminology, The Method takes a more qualitative, skill-oriented approach. This means, in a nutshell, that you receive simple yet sophisticated and effective training techniques that teach you to understand and interpret your body.
ironguides offers a light-hearted perspective on training and racing, though—make no mistake—our goal is to help you perform to your full potential! Or, as we like to say, your best is our business. Explainer video

Order and StructureThe Method training plans are set up in a very specific order, using a structure that permits very high quality training without compromising recovery. In The Method training, all sessions are planned so that each complements the other: by following the order of training as indicated in your program, you enhance the efficacy of the previous and following training sessions because you optimize recovery.
Simple Training Intensity LevelsThe Method doesn’t rely on one particular tool or piece of equipment to guide your training levels. Instead, ironguides athletes are encouraged to use simple and intuitive intensity guidelines. The Method does not discourage the use of heart rate monitors or power meters—whatever context you feel best conveys the desired training level to you is the one that will help you best achieve your goals.
The Five SystemsStrength, Speed, Neuromuscular, Lactate Tolerance & Endurance. The Method views the body as a highly complex organism of Five Systems that constantly interact to determine the effectiveness of your training. By controlling these interactions and taking into account the hormonal effects of each type of training you do, The Method ensures the highest training efficiency and rapid, optimal recovery.
RepetitionThe Method relies on a high level of repetition to help you train more than just your aerobic conditioning. By repeating certain training sets over a number of weeks, ironguides athletes learn to improve motor skills, train concentration skills, develop intuitive understanding, better anticipate training, track performance, accurately gauge fatigue, and build consistency.
