"I first met Mark Wilson at a HITS triathlon training camp that he presented in May 2014 at Diamond Mills in NY.  At this camp Mark introduced me to new techniques to improve all three of my splits.  He focused on simplicity and effectiveness.  I don't have a lot of time to train and he worked his training plans around this limitation.  I currently focus on Sprints.  I thoroughly enjoyed the week and left with a tailored plan ready to see what it would do.  I was cautiously optimistic as it was quiet a change to what I had been doing, but I was excited!  

The plan essentially requires less time in the pool, but focuses on an approach that requires good form and strength to be successful.  The drills don't work unless you develop these characteristics.  I don't want to go into detail here as it really requires Mark's explanation to be properly understood and applied.  Suffice to say that in some 5 months I have improved my swim splits by about 10%.  Although I am still not as fast as I would like to be (who is!)..the methodology is paying off..and requiring less time while providing steady improvement. This has allowed me to spend more time on my bike and run which are my strengths.  Over the same period of time I have also increased my power output on my bike by at least 10% and my running splits by more than. 5%.  So what has this done for my races? I won my AG Duathlon back a few weeks ago (40-44) and last week placed 4th in my AG in a local tri. Narrowly missing 3rd spot by 7 seconds predominantly due to a T2 transition blunder, but all three splits were PR's!  This is a race that I did last year and placed 11th.  The good news is that these improvements continue, and at my age this is unusual.  Again this is only after app. 5 months of following Mark's plan and coaching guidance.  

Although I live in Texas and Mark in NY, our weekly coaching phone sessions are effective.  In 30 minutes we review the previous weeks training outcomes, discuss the plan  for the following week and develop strategy for any races coming up if required.  Mark also good at realizing when rest is required based on this feedback. He prescribes recovery weeks accordingly to build on progress and reduce risk of overtraining.    

Mark has many years of experience and this is clear in his coaching style and results.  I highly recommend Mark if you want to not only improve your performance, but enjoy doing it at the same time! "

"Mark Wilson captures the essence of coaching.  His triathlon camp demonstrates why he is the coach for all levels of ability.  He enjoys each of his athletes, believes in their desire and compels them to reach (or should I say "fall") for their next steps.  Throughout a week of full-day workouts and classes, each athlete has full and direct access to Mark, the breadth of his knowledge and experience, at all times.  You, the athlete, feel like you control the experience.  There is one thing Mark forces you to do...believe in your greatness.  This is a great coach."

Steve Fischer, PA

"I have been working with Mark Wilson for 3 years and continue to be inspired, challenged, surprised, and learn more about myself every week.  There are many coaches that can offer athletic advice and provide organized workouts.  In my opinion there is only one that can provide the perfect balance of body and mind.  From the moment you first meet Mark you can feel a different energy.  I first met Mark at a 10k run and wasn’t sure I was up for the challenge of triathlon since my first try years ago.  A few months later, I asked Mark if he would coach me.  Little did I know, but my life would change from that moment.  In one year, I learned to swim, set a 10k PR by 6 minutes, finished an Ironman 12 weeks after breaking my foot, and placed 2nd in my age group at a half-ironman.  All of these athletic pursuits would not have been possible if Mark hadn’t been able to truly understand who I was as a person and what motivated me.  Mark has helped shape my life with my visions athletically, professionally and personally.  He has a gift that is generously shared with everyone he meets."
