At Vogel Endurance Coaching we subscribed to a holistic training module in both our group and our one-on-one triathlon coaching. Our training plans utilize a periodized program in order to create specific stress, recovery and ultimately adaptations to the body and mind. We believe the mind and body are interdependent; changes in one cause changes in the other. The mind/body system has a certain capacity to adapt that varies from person-to-person. We focus on helping to create the awareness in the individual to truly understand the stress/recovery/ adaptation cycling within their own body. We do this by utilizing both Eastern and Western philosophies including but not limited to: Nutrition, PH monitoring, Stress management ,Core work, Yoga, Goal setting, as well as aerobic and anaerobic training and triathlon specific skills
A sucessful coaching program needs generalists as well as specialists . The specialist is the one who focuses on the tree. The generalist understands the forest as a whole. For the 2014 season VEC is proud to partner with the following specialists in the Jacksonville area:
By utilizing these local companies VEC is able to create a preformance team around our athletes ensuring their success at triathlon. To date we boast a 100% finish rate with our triathletes.
