Ironguides Launches THE METHOD BIKE FIT for Triathletes
ironguides is introducing THE METHOD BIKE FIT, a comprehensive bike-fit philosophy created to help triathletes ride faster, longer and in greater comfort, while reducing the chance of injury.
ironguides is a group of global coaches certified in The Method triathlon training. The Method is ironguides' unique, effective training program for multisport athletes of all abilities.
Based on the same principles that have generated an Ironman World Champion, multiple Olympic medallists, ITU World Champions and World Cup winners, The Method ensures optimal training for each athlete—from the beginner to the seasoned age grouper to the professional triathlete.
THE METHOD BIKE FIT is done by certified ironguides coaches who are trained to analyze each rider’s unique attributes, pedal stroke and body position. Using the data gained during the assessment, ironguides coaches optimize the bike and equipment to match the rider’s biomechanical profile.
"Triathletes, whether aiming for Olympic distance races or the Ironman, spend many hours in the saddle, both in training and in races," says ironguides Head Coach Vinnie Santana.
"Comfort on the bike not only improves the joy of training and racing, it can make the difference between success—whether that means securing a spot for Kona, topping your age group or finishing your first Ironman—and failure, through pain, injury or a disappointing Did Not Finish with a sore back."
THE METHOD BIKE FIT:
- assesses the rider both on and off the bike, relying on measurement and experienced judgment;
- is entirely customized for and tailored to the individual;
- accounts for all aspects of fit and flexibility;
- incorporates theoretical and practical knowledge of an experienced fit technician.
THE METHOD BIKE FIT focuses on the individual triathlete, emphasizing the athlete's ability, specific training location(s), background in training & racing, and the athlete's goals, whether aimed at performance or lifestyle. THE METHOD BIKE FIT is a real-world protocol tailored to the individual triathlete, rather than wind tunnel tests or pre-set formulas.
ironguides coaches are based in Singapore; Bangkok, Thailand; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Tiszaujvaros, Hungary; Port Elizabeth, South Africa; and Abu Dhabi, UAE.
At ironguides, we offer simple yet effective training methods, a focus on understanding and interpreting the athlete's body, and a life-balance perspective to training and racing.
Each ironguides coach delivers straightforward and effective advice to help athletes stay motivated and realize their goals. All ironguides plans focus on developing the athlete's skills and speed as well as aerobic conditioning. Through specific, detailed training sessions, athletes achieve both maximum ability and aerobic conditioning in each sport.
ironguides offers a range of coaching packages.
