A big strength for Kyle is that he listens. Because of this he has talked me through success (two Aquathlon world championship medals and two fourths in triathlon) but also through challenges, like a concussion (not tri related) and getting back on track when life gets in the way of training. Every year I decide to trust him all over again.
Kyle coached my transition into multi sport after years away from completion. His approach, knowledge and passion for the sport helped build my confidence and push me to going further than I could imagine.
I have had Kyle as a coach for two years now. His knowlege base and background in kinesiology really make him stand out. He has helped me get through several potentially career ending injuries. Not only was I able to overcome these injuries, I was prepared to compete at an extremely high level and place on the podium. He knows what an athlete needs to do at various points in the season and is not afraid to back up his reasoning when being questioned.
Using various media for communication such as Trainingpeaks, email and monthly athlete check-ins coach Kyle stays in touch and up to date on changing athlete needs and conditions. Pre- and post-race debriefs have helped me feel more confident going into races and understand areas of improvement a bit better.
From the start, Kyle saw potential in my ability to become more competitive as an age-group triathlete. Through this program, I’ve been exposed to new and more efficient ways of training thanks to Kyle’s strategic workout plans. With his coaching support, I have managed to improve my times in all three disciplines - even the one I thought was my strongest.
I’ve been training with T1 Triathlon for over 2 years and have seen tremendous results in my triathlon performance. If you are looking to step up your performance, you have come to right place.
I have worked with Kyle for a number of years. What I have most benefited from is his honest and helpful approach to my fitness goals. He has great listening skills, which then translate into appropriate action - these moved me forward. With Kyle’s help, at the age of 69, I did my first (and only) triathlon in Fort Macleod. It was a 200 m swim, 10 km bike ride and 2 km run - mainly a stumble, in my case. I had decided I would do something like this before I turned 70, and consequently I felt a great sense of accomplishment. All of this took great effort and I was coached all the way by Kyle. Thank you, Kyle and T1 Triathlon for your faith in me, when I didn’t have it myself, and the plan which moved me from a hope to a completion.
