Meet the Coach

JAMES BECKINSALE M.Sc, TRIATHLON COACH, FOUNDER OF OPTIMA RACING TEAM AND AUTHOR OF THE TRIATHLON TRAINING BOOK.

After years of coaching athletes in person I wanted to help athletes all over the world who couldn’t engage with coaches or clubs personally. Rather than just providing online training plans, I have put together a number of resources including training plans, videos and articles.

For the training plans to become personal to you I’ve included profiling tools that will help set your individual training zones. I’ll also be posting training sessions and current thinking on social media.

If you have the passion and commitment for this amazing sport, I believe you deserve to have the support required. This is why I’ve created “Virtual Triathlon Coaching”.




How it Works

TRAINING PLANS, VIDEOS & PROFILING WORKING TOGETHER TO HELP YOU GET THE BEST RESULTS


Depending on where you are in the world – Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere – in relation to your triathlon season, I’ve separated the year cycle into 3 training phases; foundation, winter and race preparation.

Winter training is all about developing your all round fitness for Triathlon. Yes you have to take into winter things you have learned or built on in the Foundation phase however holding this new learning under greater pressure. If preparing for an Ironman or 70.3 it’s key that you don’t over run or over bike on duration. Whatever distance you’re training for you need to have enthusiasm at the start of the 12-week preparation phase.

James started coaching me as an age group athlete in 2009 while I was working full time as a lawyer. I started to make remarkable improvements under his guidance and in early 2011 we took on the mammoth task of qualifying for the London Olympics.

I met James in late 2007, with one Kona (scraping a roll-down slot) and one sub-10 hour Ironman to my name, but I really didn’t believe I was capable of going much faster and was thinking of moving on to other challenges. Over the next four years under James’ coaching, I qualified for Hawaii every year (no roll downs needed), made the top 20 twice in Kona, knocked 5 minutes off my swim, 25 minutes off my bike and nearly 20 minutes off my run PBs and achieved my dream goal of completing an ironman in under 9 hours (at the age of 44).

Ironman (45-49), Kona Qualifier
I've loved working with James to address the physical, skill and mental limiters that have been between where I started and where I want to get in Ironman racing. The physical is the sessions we do and why, the skill is stuff you can only get from a coach that's been pool and trackside for years and finally the mental approach is key to both training and racing - when the going gets tough in an Ironman. I've learnt a huge amount in 2 years working with James both qualifying for and having a great debut Kona, and am excited about what the future has in store together.
