Testimonials from a few of our clients 

 “Simon, Darren and the rest of the team are hands down the best coaches I’ve worked with in my career as a triathlete. They help keep me focused on what’s important, nudge me when necessary to keep the hammer down and make sure I’m having fun along the way. To have access to a five-time world champion and one of the top running coaches in the business is an incredible competitive advantage.”

Brian Weaver, Kansas

"As a motivated age grouper, I knew that I needed the proper guidance if I was going to succeed as a triathlete at the elite level. After emailing and calling around the U.S. to several top coaches, Simon and Darren were my first choice. Not only did their extensive athletic backgrounds and knowledge get my attention, but their unique determination to guide me to my goals really stood out. After moving to Boulder, CO and getting to know both Simon and Darren on a personal level, I can say with confidence that my initial judgments were completely correct, they will go beyond the call of duty to provide their athletes with all of the tools necessary to achieve their goals and much more. By tailoring a program specifically designed with the athletes goals in mind, achieving personal records and completing lifelong goals becomes possible no matter if you are a first timer or seasoned professional."

Damon Barnett, pro triathlete, Colorado

"Boulder Coaching does an amazing job of working with athletes to develop a program that fits their needs as an athlete. I have been working with Simon and Darren for a year; I have had great success thus far and look forward to continuing to improve under their guidance."

Mary Beth Ellis, pro triathlete, Colorado

"Investing in my training with Boulder Coaching has paid off big dividends to my race results in the past year. In IM Arizona, I bettered my previous PR by over an hour. In Timberman 70.3, I bettered my previous PR by ½ hr.
With limited training time due to real world responsibilities( hectic job, busy family life w/ kids), Boulder Coaching maximizes efficiency in every workout. And that’s what made the difference!"

Matthew Wong, New York

"I thought the days of setting PR's was over for me, but last summer I recorded the fastest Half Ironman bike split of my life (2:21) at age 52! I credit Simon's logical and planned workouts for my performance breakthrough. Even though I have been cycling for 24 years, I never approached training like I did last summer, with all workouts geared to my LT and varied by cadence. It's a scientific approach that works!"

Ted Kennedy, Colorado

"I am extremely pleased with the service that Boulder Coaching is providing. In addition to the extremely detailed schedule I am afforded the opportunity to train with the coaches 5+ times a week, which in my experience is unprecedented.

Most importantly I’m seeing great gains already. I’m sold on this company."

Jeff Radwick, Colorado

The difference for me between having a dream and chasing a dream, is my coach/coaching staff and training program. Putting the knowledge, experience and expertise of Boulder Coaching behind my own motivation, gives me the training program, guidance and support I need, to truly become the best athlete I can!

Becky Witinok-Huber, Professional Triathlete, Colorado

"Since signing on with Boulder Coaching, I set PRs in my last two Ironman races and qualified for Kona. They took my performance to the next level.The coaches of Boulder Coaching give first hand insight into training and racing. Their personal racing experiences have been invaluable in my race preparations. As CEO of my own company, I have a limited amount of time to train. Boulder Coaching has improved my performance with a program designed around my tight schedule and helped me qualify for Kona."

Guy Berkebile, Pennsylvania

"Boulder Coaching continues to provide an excellent, tailored program based on my goals, race schedule and available training time. I like the fact that the week to week training has a big picture focus and is easy to follow. The professional racing experience of the coaches often shines through in the guidance through the race season."

Scott Varwig, Illinois 

"Boulder Coaching is a community of the world’s best coaches and athletes. Coming to triathlon as a biker, I had a lot to learn about balancing the other disciplines. Simon, Darren, Lisa and Colleen are invaluable in providing insight and focus to my goals and training. They work with me to juggle a busy professional career with completely customized and targeted workouts. I’m not trying to be a professional triathlete, but Boulder Coaching ensures I achieve maximum performance as my abilities grow."

Bill Spencer, Colorado

“I’ve been training with Simon for over a year, and with Darren for 8 years. As a recreational athlete I very much appreciate the enthusiasm, energy, and wisdom that come with the entire Boulder Coaching staff. Certainly I wouldn’t be where I’m at without them.”

Steve Dunbar, Colorado 

"With the goal of qualifying for the Hawaii Ironman World Championship this year I knew I'd have to take my training to a higher level. Boulder Coaching has provided me with the guidance and motivation to do just that! Simon, Darren, and Lisa have elevated my performance in each of the three disciplines through their personalized workouts and training plan. After just 5 months of training with Boulder Coaching I was able to qualify for Hawaii at the St. Croix 70.3 race. Thanks to Boulder Coaching I'm looking forward to achieving new goals in Hawaii this year!"

Erik Werner, 40-44 Age Group, Colorado

"When I was introduced to Simon, the first thing he said to me was "I can give you a workout that's 40+ hours of training per week, but if you don't have the time to do it, you're wasting your money." I knew right away that he understood the life of an age-grouper (ie, balancing family, work/travel, and training) and he was the coach for me! Living in a wired world, I always felt tightly connected to Simon and Darren, and their ease of accessibility kept them right on top of my workouts, despite the 2,000 miles that separated us. All this is great, but working with a coach comes down to execution: after just three short months of working with Simon and Darren, i raced at the USAT Olympic Distance Age Group National Championship and dropped over 5 minutes off my previous bike PR, while still having enough fitness to maintain a great run, despite 90 degree heat. As i get "older" their structure of going very hard on the hard days while going very easy on the easy days has kept me injury free, and will hopefully add longevity to my sport."

Jason Macaluso, CT

"Just wanted to say a very special thank you to the Boulder Coaching team for the fantastic assistance and guidance I received from your team of coaches. The expertise and personal guidance was awesome whilst I was in Boulder preparing for Kona and the assistance received once I broke my collar bone was way beyond the call of duty.

The additional guidance received whilst preparing for Clearwater 70.3, especially the swim sets with one arm and applying what I had learnt from you guys played a huge role in my managing to finish on the podium and secure the thrid position in the 50-54 age category."
