With almost forty years of experience in triathlon, I coach triathletes of all levels. I was a professional triathlete in Finland during the early 90s. After that I have worked as a certified professional coach.

Since the mid-90s, I have been active in the coaching business with my company ‘Ad Extremum.’

I live and work in Roth, Germany, a small town in Bavaria often referred to as the triathlon Mecca, just south of Nuremberg.

I utilize email, Teams, Google Meet, Zoom, Skype sessions, Whatsapp and phone calls as coaching tools. If you’re nearby or wish to visit, we can also arrange one-on-one coaching sessions!

It doesn’t matter whether you’re aiming to run your first 10k or participate in the Ironman in Kona, Hawaii. A goal is a goal, and the rules remain the same, regardless of which goal you strive to achieve.

My mission is to assist you on your journey towards your goal and to collaborate with you in selecting the best path to reach it.

While you must walk this road alone, I’ll be in the background to support and motivate you, and perhaps even give you that extra push when needed!



Bennie Lindberg – Triathlon Coach

Born: Helsinki, Finland, September 26, 1963 Currently Living: Roth, near Nuremberg, Germany

With nearly forty years of experience in triathlon, I bring a wealth of knowledge to my coaching practice. As a former member of the Finnish triathlon national team, I’ve completed close to fifty different long-distance events, including over 30 Ironmans, with six on the Big Island of Hawaii, in Kona.

Since the mid-90s, I’ve dedicated myself full-time to coaching, primarily in the realm of triathlon. Additionally, I’ve authored four books in Germany and contributed numerous articles to various magazines. For more detailed information about my background, please continue reading below.


Coaching, to me, is all about communication. We are each unique, with different bodies, strengths, and weaknesses. What works for one athlete may not work for another.

While there are general physiological principles to follow, they merely provide a framework. Within this framework lies ample room for individualized training, which I refer to as “FEELING.”

It’s essential for you to intuitively understand what works best for your body. I can provide training plans, but you must communicate how they feel. Your body is your guide, underscoring the importance of communication. However, relying solely on feelings can sometimes mislead us, especially during tough training sessions. That’s why regular testing, including watt measurements, heart rates, frequencies, and speed assessments, is crucial for monitoring progress.

In my coaching, I adhere to three principles:

  1. Strive for maximum achievement with minimal training. If needed, we can always increase training hours later.
  2. Coaching remains straightforward as long as a meter remains a meter and a second remains a second. If progress stalls, adjustments are necessary.
  3. Excellence is built upon knowledge, experience, and work ethic.

As a coach, my role is to collaborate with athletes in creating a plan to achieve their goals. With over 30 years of experience, I possess the insights necessary to navigate this journey effectively.

All my training plans are meticulously crafted by hand, tailored to your individual needs, goals, schedule, and lifestyle. To maintain the quality of my work, I limit the number of athletes I coach each year.
