Online Coaching FAQs

Do you recommend a coach or do I select from your list of coaches?

If an athlete has a preference for a particular coach that is super, but if not we help decide which coach would be most suitable.

It’s important to have a good coaching relationship. Some athletes prefer a male or female coach, but also as we are international company we have coaches from various countries and often find athletes and coaches of similar nationalities communicate work best.

Before starting to work with a Trisutto coach, the process is usually a Skype or phone call for the coach and athlete to learn more about each other, and for the athlete to be able to ask any and all questions they wish. It is important to discuss sporting goals, work and life commitments, logistics (e.g. distance to the local swimming pool), past injuries and to get a feel for personal motivations and the individual persons characteristics. Everyone is different and unique, and getting the balance right so training compliments life, produces results and not tips it out of kilter.

All of our Trisutto coaches have been coached by Brett as athletes and/or mentored as coaches, and use his training methods and principles in their own coaching. Each coach has their own style, hence matching coach to athlete is important.

The majority of our coaches schedule workouts one week at a time to be able to incorporate feedback and help tailor training specifically to the athlete.

The sign up process is online. Simply purchase the coaching product – this pays your first months coaching fee, and creates a monthly subscription that charges your credit card / PayPal account on the same day each month.

How does the subscription work?
When you sign up online, you pay for one month of coaching. A monthly subscription is also created that automatically charges your Visa, Mastercard or PayPal account on the same day each month, for the following months.
* you can sign up at any time, up to the start date agreed with your coach. We can adjust your subscription renewal date to align to this start.  Note that your first month coaching fee is still paid when you sign up, however by changing your renewal date, your subsequent payments will then be correctly lined with your start date.

* you only need to sign up once, then payments are automatically charged each following month, until you decide to cancel – which can be done at any time. There is no minimum period.

You receive a receipt (by e-mail) for each monthly subscription payment.
