Bennie Lindberg – Coach
With over thirty years of experience in triathlon, I coach triathletes off all levels. I used to be a professional triathlete when I lived in Finland during the early 90s.
Since the middle of the 90s I´m active in the coaching business with my company “Ad Extremum”.
I live and work in Germany in the small town of Roth, also called the triathlon Mecca, in Bavaria just south of Nuernberg.
As coaching tools, I use email, skype sessions, and phone. If you live close by or want to come and visit, we can also do one on one coaching sessions!
If I have made you curious, please find out more about me on this webpage and if you have interest in my services do not hesitate to contact me.
It does not matter if you want to run your first 10k or participate in Ironman in Kona, Hawaii. A goal is a goal and the rules stays the same regardless witch goal you want to achieve.
My mission is to help you on your way to your goal and to choose with you the best road to travel to reach this destiny.
You have to walk this road alone, but I will be in the background to help and motivate you, and who knows sometimes perhaps even to push you!
Bennie Lindberg – Triathlon Coach
Born in Helsinki, Finland
Living in Roth close to Nuernberg in Germany
I have almost forty years of experience in triathlon. I was a member of the finnish triathlon national team and have done close to fifty different kinds of long distance including more than 30 Ironmans of which 6 in Kona on the Big island in Hawaii.
Since the middle of the 90s I work full time as a coach mainly in triathlon.
I have published four books in Germany and published many articles in different magazines. Below you will find more information about me.
For me coaching is communitation! We are all different! We have different bodies, different strengths and different weaknesses. What works for one athlete does not have to work for another.
We have some general physiological rules to play by, but that is only the frame in which we have to work! There is a lot of room for individual training in this frame and I call this space FEELING.
You also have to feel and find out what works for you and what not. I can only write you the plans but you have to tell me how it feels. It´s your body and that´s why communication is so important!
We cannot rely only on our feelings, it might mislead us when the training gets though, that´s why we need different test on a regular basis to control and monitor our progress.
Different testing sets including watt, heart rates, frequencies, and speed are all part of the coaching.
I have three rules in my coaching:
- Try to achieve as much as possible, with as little training as you can. Usually it´s no big problem to increase the hours later.
- As long as a meter remains a meter and one second still is one second coaching stays easy! If you do not get faster over a certain time, you are doing something wrong and you have to change something!
- Excellence consists of knowledge, experience and your work ethics.
My task as a coach is, together with the athlete, to create a plan how to reach the goal and then and then plan the training to reach this goal. With more than 30 years of experience, I know what we have do to reach this goal!
All my training plans are custom made, 100% handwork so to speak. Every single workout is tailored to fit your person, goals, day and lifestyle.
I only coach a limited number of athletes each year in order to guarantee the quality of my work.
