Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, September 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Just as swimming, cycling and running are three distinct athletic endeavors, becoming a triathlon coach involves a variety of specific educational, technical and motivational skills. To meet the growing needs of triathlon coaches, the International Triathlon Coaching Association offers a unique triathlon coaching certification to improve athletic performance, create jobs for coaches and decrease sports related injuries.
The triathlon coaching certification, approved by USA Triathlon, National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association, the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the International Sports Science Association and other certifying bodies, helps triathlon coaches construct programs for both training and racing, identify appropriate pace training zones, identify heart rate training zones and more. The multi-sport training covers both shorter sprint distances and full triathlon training.
“With men and women of all ages participating in triathlons in unprecedented numbers, great triathlon coaches are more important than ever,” said Dr. John Spencer Ellis, founder of the International Triathlon Coaching Association. “The International Triathlon Coaching Association not only offers the latest certifications in triathlon coaching, but we also offer complete business training that helps our graduates enjoy both financial and coaching success. We want to build the economy and the sport.”
The online triathlon coaching certification program, which follows all the rules and regulations of USA Triathlon, offers ongoing enrollment and is valid for two years.
