YouCoach - Training plans

What is it?
This service is a simple yet complete model with general-semi personalized training plans, multimedia content, online advice and social interaction through a private forum. This provides an effective alternative way to training with expert advice from E3 coaches for a lower cost.

We offer “Off-season” or race specific training plans for different distances (Olympic, 70.3 and Ironman), durations and 3 different levels based on your current fitness level, experience, needs and racing goals. The semi-personalized plans are accompanied with “how to” guides, annual training plans, multi-media and other materials that covers most training questions/needs for our athletes. In addition you can ask as many questions as you might have to our expert coaching group via a private online web forum (hosted at or via our private Facebook Group and you'll get response within the same day.

Unlike other general plans, ours are delivered on three to five 4-week blocks; this allows us to make fitness progress assessment at the end of each block and recommend what 4-week block plan will suit the athlete's needs based on strengths, weaknesses, time constraints and adaptability. This scheduling flexibility maximize fitness gains.

Is YouCoach for you?
This service is more of ‘Do It Yourself’ model for athletes. In simple words; we provide you with season plan with detailed workouts, we provide you the tools (plan, guides, calculators, testing, videos, etc.), we provide you expert support and YOU do the Coaching matching the plan to fit your specific needs. This allows athletes to have a direct control over their training schedule.

This service will suit better those athletes who enjoy taking control of their program, require minimal coaching support and with a flexible schedules or for those wanting to be more involved with their plan and learn at the same time.

How Does It Work?
It is very simple:
  1. The athlete fills up a fitness assessment and submit to us, we analyze it and based on that info provided recommend what plan level will fit the athlete needs. 
  2. We submit the first 4 week block plan, “how to” guides and schedule a startup conference call to discuss the details of the plan, terminology, goals, etc. 
  3. We also give the athlete access to the private forum where he/she will have access to different multi-media and personal thread in which he/she can ask any questions in order to further adjust the plan to match his/her need; those will be answered by our coaches within 24-48 hrs. 
  4. During the last week of the 1st block, the athlete will complete the fitness progress assessment with detailed feedback so we can recommend the next 4 week block that will fit his/her needs and goals. We do this at the end of every block.
