We serve our athletes by guiding them to race day with the optimal physical development to meet their specific goals. We prioritize continuity of training through injury prevention. We achieve this through periodized training stress, guided by objective quantification of the training load, and subjective feedback from the athlete. This means, one size does not fit all! We utilize the most current research available in the sport/exercise science field to assure you that each decision we make together, is well informed and your time well spent.
But that's only part of the story...
Each training plan is based on individual, well established metabolic zones, allowing us to prescribe exercise intensity for each athlete's specific needs.
Our personalized online training plans are continually updated based on the information you input into the Training Peaks website. This assures you that as you gain fitness, the prescription is adjusted to account for your new performance potential. Training Peaks is also available in a convenient app for your mobile device. Below is an example of one week for one of our athletes. The workout blocks turn green when the workout is completed. If the workout was short or long, it turns yellow to alert us that something didn't go as planned. If the workout was missed altogether, the workout block turns red. The summary on the right side of the week shows us duration and distance for each sport and all metrics are highly customizable.
At Parker Performance Training, we use the Training Peaks algorithm to objectively quantify training stress, track your fitness, and deliver optimal results on race day.
Optimal performance is most likely to occur when you are just the right amount of rested, but not too much. It is a balance between what you have accomplished over the long-term, and how rested you are in the short-term. Training Peaks allows us to observe patterns in your training that result in your best performances. We can recreate these scenarios and give you the best chance at a best performance based on empirical evidence.
