Swim Bike Train! Powered by PTS Sports

So here’s the big announcement!

So you all know that I have been working with Brett Daniels (a/k/a Coach T-Bone), the head coach of PTS Sports, for a while now.  Coach T-Bone is a Level II USAT and USA Cycling Expert Level II coach. Also, since I am now Level I USAT Certified, he and I have been planning some awesome things for the Army.

Here’s the newest and biggest endeavor that SBM has ever undertaken—and we are SUPER excited.

Introducing Swim Bike Train! Powered by PTS Sports!


The idea behind SBT is to provide affordable, accessible training plans for sprint, Olympic and 70.3 distance races.

Not only that, but you have the option to join the SBT Training Groups for each distance–the Training Groups will launch on Facebook, and will be led by Coach T-Bone and Swim Bike Mom.


Why Swim Bike Train! Powered by PTS Sports?

Are you signed up for a race but don’t really know where to start training? Thinking about getting a coach but aren’t ready to fully commit to a monthly fee? Are you an independent athlete who just needs a road map and a nudge in the right direction?

Swim Bike Train Groups may be just what you are looking for.

We offer plans for the Sprint, Olympic, and 70.3 distances along with the support of a secret Facebook group for you to ask questions and get encouragement from other athletes in the group.


All plans are written by PTS Sports Head Coach, Brett Daniels

Each closed Facebook group will also be moderated by Brett Daniels (USA Triathlon Level II Coach) and Meredith Atwood (USA Triathlon Level I Coach). Each member will be able to ask questions regarding the schedule or general questions about your training and have them answered within a 24 hour period. Phone consultations with Brett or Meredith will be available for an additional fee. An athlete may can upgrade to Individual Coaching at anytime during the training period, if she or he feels that more personalized data analysis or conversations are necessary.


Here are the Plans!

Where do I sign-up!? And What Happens Next?

The Plans will be released no later than Sunday, February 16th.  You will receive an email from Coach T-Bone with your access code for TrainingPeaks.com on or before Sunday. Once you sign up for TrainingPeaks.com (it’s free), the access code will allow your PTS Sports plan to be uploaded into your TrainingPeaks account. You choose your start date for your training plan.

Your 12/16/20 weeks in the group, depending on the plan, will begin when you download the plan. Meredith will send you an email invite from Facebook with a link to join the secret training group. You can continue in the Facebook group after 12/16/20 weeks, and will be emailed  instructions how to continue after the time is up.  You will also have the option to jump to the next distance or Plan at that time to continue on with your goals!

    O. M. G. This is awesome!!!!!!!!! I was just saying yesterday how I needed to get some direction in my tri-life. As a totally newbie to this whole thing, I have been working out but having a hard time getting everything to mesh! I will have to check this out. Thanks!!

  2. Michelle says

    Sounds very promising! Are you able to share how many days/week these plans entail? Or perhaps it’s flexible depending on 2 a days?

    • Swim Bike Mom says

      Hi Michelle – Plans will be 6-7 days a week with some doubles for oly and Him plans. Of course things can be rearranged by the athlete to meet their schedule

    • Swim Bike Mom says

      In the interest of time, there is no stregth training on this plan. It certainly has room for it, if you want, but the plan maxes out at 12 hours.

  3. Paige Alldredge says

    This is so cool!!!!! I’m doing a sprint in May and an Olympic a month later. Should I pay for the sprint program? Or the Olympic one? Is it possible to “upgrade” and pay the difference or something when I’m prepping for my oly?

  4. Julie says

    eeek – just signed up! I have been out of the training mood since having work done on the house. Contractors do a good job of sucking energy out of you. Hoping this will help get me back into it.
