"All I spent was 3 days with Coach Mike and the improvements he helped me make we're unbelievably helpful. With the new techniques I learned, I am now able to pretty much half my effort and still improve my time. I am now a more efficient athlete and am less prone to injury as well. The program is worth every second if you're interested in moving up in the ranks of triathletes!"
