“I have been nothing but impressed by the thought, preparation and precision of the training schedule phasing and design over the year and race season as a whole.

Although I've always considered myself fit you have notched my training up to another level and it's been a pleasure to not have to worry about planing my own training schedule and leave it to you, knowing full well that each session will have an important and very relevant role to play in the schedule geared towards peaking for the season's races.

The culmination of our goals came through at the end of the season with my Half Ironman A-Race.

I started the race feeling ready and armed with all the right tools to perform well. Thank you!

At the end of the race I felt strong and content that I had done the very best I could have. Thank you so much!

Russ, your dedication and passion for tri has really shone through.

I love that you adopt the latest schools of thought on training and ways to facilitate our training goals.

The results this year for me and the rest of the team training talk for themselves”
