The Rx3 MISSION
The mission of Rx3 Performance is to build and foster a relationship between coach, athlete, and community that promotes the sport of triathlon while improving the experience of the athlete. The coaching foundations are the cornerstone of the Rx3 system. Each Rx3 Performance coach prescribes these four elements in their coaching practice.
1. Proper physiological assessment-Assessing the athlete’s current physical capabilities through questionnaires, benchmark testing, and/or lab testing is in many ways the first domino in setting up a successful relationship between coach and athlete. These parameters are the key components to prescribing a training plan that is proper in terms of intensity, duration, and frequency.
2. Proper goal setting-The athlete and coach must agree on a proper goal set. The athlete should set goals that are high enough to motivate while being attainable in a feasible length of time.
3. Intelligent and specific individual training plans-There are many aspects to designing training plans that are specific and correct for each athlete. Rx3 Performance coaches will take into consideration many factors of each individual athlete that includes strengths and weaknesses, goals, history, training environment, availability, and many more all while keeping it fun and engaging.
4. Proper balance of family, work, life, and sport-This is an aspect that is often overlooked but is held dearly with Rx3 Performance coaches. We love triathlon, but only as it is properly balanced in the athlete’s life. This means many different things for different athletes. Rx3 coaches are dedicated to finding balance within the athlete’s involvement in sport as it fits into individual lifestyles.
