The Triathlon Coaching Company

About Us

Optima Training Systems have been coaching Triathlon since 1999.  We recognise training time can be precious and so implement a coaching system that optimises your time and ensures goals are met through a number of phases tailored to you the individual.

Our training system combines science with 20 years of endurance coaching experience.  Our tried and tested approach has produced results in all ages and in all abilities from complete beginners through to professional athletes.

All of our coaches have been coached as athletes through the system before becoming coaches themselves.  As coaches they are mentored by our head coach James Beckinsale ensuring quality and consistency in our coaching.

Whatever your distance, current level or training hours available, we have the experience and knowledge to help you meet and exceed your goals.
