One on One Coaching

The starting point for most amateur athletes, including masters athletes is by joining some sort of training club or team. Athletes benefit and improve based on foundational and fundamental aspects of the sport with those groups but there is a limit to what group training can accomplish. At some point, athletes seeking to progress beyond Novice level of competition need individualized training in order to address their individual needs, and more specifically, training to address their individual weaknesses.

Athletes win on their strengths, but lose because of their weaknesses.

Bill Sweetenham, Head Coach UK & Australian National Swim Teams

With TOEST and TOETT athletes having achieved numerous podiums in the past year alone, its time for the coaching at TOEST and TOETT to grow ensuring that our athletes have the resources they need to achieve their performance goals. Individualized coaching is now available from Coach Aimee and Coach Mark so athletes can progress from a Novice to a Sport level of competition.

Individualized coaching has three components:

Goal Setting Meeting

An in person meeting where the athletes training and racing history is reviewed, followed by a discussion to establish short, intermediate and long term goals. The session results in a weekly training template recommending appropriate TOEST & TOETT programs along with training sessions that are to be performed independently.

Training Log Review

Even with goals established, consistent training in the context of life (e.g. career, business, family) can be a challenge. Having an objective review of your training log will help athletes retain or regain the direction required to achieve their goals. Receiving recommendations on how, when, and by how much to adjust training is needed both for achieving goals and maintaining physical, mental, and emotional health.

Follow Up Meetings

Adjustments to physical training plans can be made easily via email exchanges or online platforms; but making the critical adjustments to mindset, attitude, and narratives – the true limiters of performance – requires routine review between athlete and coach. Quarterly meetings are recommended for Novice & Sport athletes, monthly for Performance.

Training Log platform used is TrainingPeaks.com

Coaching Bundles

The bundles below are available irrespective of whether you choose to work with Coach Aimee or Coach Mark.  For those wanting to work with Coach MJ, athletes need to work with either Aimee or Mark for a minimum of 6 months. The exception are athletes who have already worked with a Hi-Performance Coach and are interested in changing their Coach. Please note that due to the importance of an athlete adhering to a single training philosophy, we do not work with athletes who want to retain multiple coaches.  We agree with the cliche: “more chefs in the kitchen do not make for a better omelette”; we believe that a singular training philosophy is as important as the singular focus of seeking one’s potential.

Novice Athlete x 6m/M

Additional Notes

We recommend that athletes have logged in a journal (e.g. Excel or Google doc spreadsheet, or online using TrainingPeaks.com) for a minimum of one full month in order that your coach is able to gain an appreciation for how many hours a week you train, the consistency of your training, and an awareness for the challenges that need to be resolved (e.g. business travel interrupts consistent training) in order that the training recommended is in fact doable.

Quarterly payment options are available; however, a premium of 6% is added to the fees listed above. A discount is available to families who seek to receive coaching as a unit where goals are aligned allowing all to train and race together. Any questions… or if ready to start, then contact aimee@toett.ca.

TOETT does not provide refunds due to the amount of work (in the background) that it takes to review training logs and to perform the necessary preparatory work ahead of consults. The commitment our coaches make to athletes will not be compromised by those who want to ‘test out’ services, or who want to change their minds at will; our desire is to coach and only coach athletes who are as committed to their goals as we will be to them.
