FFT is a leading triathlon, cycling, and endurance sports coaching organization for individuals and teams nationwide. Operating from hubs in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina and Madison, Wisconsin, FFT partners with local elite-athlete coaches to combine their hard-earned experience and knowledge with a high-yield, periodized and scientific training system that has proven time and time again to produce results.
Our program is scientific and periodized, built on a foundation of elite athletic experience and academic knowledge. Armed with an understanding of sports physiology, nutrition, biomechanics, and aerodynamics, and equipped with the experience to apply that knowledge, we generate success. Our racing experience is not limited to professional triathlon. Because we have elite racing experience in each component sport, we have a “breadth-upon-depth” knowledge-base to optimize your multisport performance. Add a decade of coaching in competitive performance-driven team environments and that makes FFT second-to-none in facilitating the fulfillment of your potential.
We believe that great coaching stems from a love of athletics combined with great people skills and knowledge. For us, that knowledge must be informed by experience. It is mandatory that our coaches are seasoned elite athletes-coaching is an art as well as a science. There are simply too many nuances, complexities, and subtleties that cannot be learned from sitting in a weekend clinic or reading a book; true insight can only be gained by doing, failing, and succeeding. We’ve been there; we know what it takes.
Most athletes drop the better part of an hour off their time in their first season with FFT. And these athletes aren’t novices; they range from upper-level age groupers to professionals. The balanced training plan makes FFT athletes faster at any distance from sprint to Ironman.
