Welcome to FIV3 Racing

Individualized Endurance Coaching

At Fiv3 Racing, we believe there is more than training plans in Endurance Coaching. Our coaching foundation is built around five non-training plan principles that result in success in long course endurance: hydration, nutrition, electrolytes, race planning and mental toughness. We pride ourselves in having a very personal coaching experience, it isn't just training for an event. It is balancing family life, travel, and work while focusing each workout on the goal of making you faster! No stone is left unturned. Our ideal athlete is looking for one or more of the 3 following season goals: Personal Records (PRs), qualifying for a World Championship and/or qualifying for the Boston Marathon. They also need to be prepared for a different coaching experience, one built around a tight-knit community, and a Coach who will have your Spouse's number in their phone.

What we do

Personalized Coaching

Endurance Team


After years of coaching experience we found that giving one client more "attention" because that athlete signed up for a higher coaching level just did not work for us. Interaction levels came more naturally, when questions were asked, they were answered, and when workouts completed, they were commented on. When we needed an athlete to update Training Peaks or to give us a race schedule we asked for it, no matter the level. Feedback naturally went both ways. There was one way to coach, by how much interaction the client wished for, as well as how much was natural to get the athlete the fastest across the finish line.
The difference we found was in the distance of the key or "A" race of the season. Long course (Ironman or 70.3 for example) required more individual coaching focusing on the important "non-training" factors of nutrition, hydration, electrolytes, race planning and mental toughness. Five things that are not as imperative to succeed in short course racing. Our pricing is based on these fundamentals. You are either long course or short course. Fiv3 Racing does provide discounts for couples racing together as well as non-local athletes as described below. We provide occasional local to the DC area group training opportunities. We also provide single-sport packages in run, bike and swim only.

  • Start-up: Evaluation of past training plans and race results and develop future goals specific to the individual athlete
  • Training Peaks: Premium paid by Coach
  • Communication: Dictated by Athlete and what their needs are, but at a minimum, interaction at least 2x a week (Coach or Athlete initiated)
  • Plans: Sent in blocks of 1-2 weeks, Coach will adjust for unforeseen events
  • Workouts: Programs are structured to the individual athlete, no cookie cutter plans!
  • Races: Race plans, including detailed nutrition and pacing which has been thoroughly practiced by the Athlete, at a minimum, for "A" races. "A" race plans discussed via meeting or phone call
  • Testing: Coach will provide testing to determine baselines at the beginning of the Coaching arrangement as well as the beginning of the season
  • Camps: 10% off Camps (while actively in a Coaching contract)
  • Coached Workouts: Coaches will provide opportunities year-round for Coached group workouts that are no cost to current Athletes. Depending on time of the year options include: SAG'd group rides, swim clinics, group bike testing, group runs etc. (Local athletes to the DC area only)
