Coaches on Couches Ep. 68 – Kirsten Sass – Multi Time National and World Champion Triathlete

In this episode we’ve got our good buddy Kirsten Sass (aka the smiling assassin, aka the Sassinator) on the couch….finally. Kirsten has won just about every championship there is in multisport and is now focusing her efforts on helping visually impaired athlete Amy Dixon qualify for a spot in the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo. We talk about her very humble beginnings in triathlon, her method for improving year after year, how her late father influenced her rise to triathlon royalty, how the sport got her through a tough time, how she got into guiding, and tons more! This is one interview you won’t want to miss. Kirsten oozes inspiration. That’s a joke, that would be gross. But she does share a lot of great info for the newcomer and advanced athlete alike.

The shoutouts are lacking because we prerecorded this one after fitting her on her bikes. We faked some though. Have to stay consistent.

Enjoy!

PS. Don’t miss your opportunity to train with the coach and Kirsten at our April Tri Camp!

Coaches on Couches Ep. 67 – Finding Your Ideal Diet For Optimizing Performance


Simply put, there is an insane amount of conflicting information out there in the world of nutrition right now. The confusion is multiplied for cyclist, runners, and triathletes that think they are already doing a pretty good job with their day to day nutrition. Plant based? Ketogenic? Vegetarian? Whole 30? Beach Body? Kangatarian? WTF!? It’s a thing.

In this episode we are going to try to wade through all the BS and give you the major points that will actually provide benefit to your health and performance as an endurance athlete. We’ll also provide our big tips for small changes that make big differences.

So if you’ve watched every food documentary out there and want to jump through a window, give us a listen before you do something stupid.

Coaches on Couches Ep, 66 – Vanlife for the Endurance Athlete

This episode is less on performance enhancement and more on enhancing the experience of training and racing. We recently purchased a couple of adventure vans build by the good people at VanDOit in Blue Springs, MO. The truth is we did a ton of research before pulling the trigger and spending our hard earned dollars with VanDOit. But for every cyclist, runner, or triathlete, a camper van or adventure van can make an otherwise awesome adventure, epic.

We talk about why we wanted adventure vans, why we chose VanDOit, some of the must have items in the build, and some places we are excited about going this year in these rigs.

Lastly, we chat a little about a new venture that came out of all of this. Our plan is to rent our vans so others can make memories and have some really awesome outdoor experiences. No fluff, just being in nature, staying fit, and spending time with friends and family. What else do you really need?

So if the athlete van life has interested you, check out this episode of Coaches on Couches!

Coaches on Couches Ep. 65 – Pros and Cons – Self Coached vs General Plans vs Hiring a Coach

In this episode we chat about the pros and cons of choosing to coach yourself, versus choosing a free or paid training plan, versus hiring a coach. There are a lot of factors that go into choosing which is best for you. Things like budget, spare time, and the learning curve of each will play a big role on the route you should go. So if you are a cyclist, triathlete, or runner staring down a big season with big goals, and don’t have a road map yet, join us for another round of Coaches on Couches.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 64 – How to Become An Early Riser Athlete


Some cyclist, runners, and triathletes just are not morning people. Which is odd, because most races start at the butt crack of dawn. But generally speaking, if you don’t knock out some training in the early morning, the chances of it happening diminish with every hour that passes. So on this episode we are going to give you some tips and methods on how you can change and create new routines that can lead to the incredibly efficient and productive habit of….getting your butt out of bed. If you are prisoner to warm blankets and snuggles, then you NEED to check out this episode to break the chains and actually get your training in. Hey, they are your goals not ours.

So let’s make it happen and start getting the worm on this episode of Coaches on Couches!
