Description of Carson Christen

I have been a professional coach based out of Boulder, Colorado for the past 5 years however early this year my girlfriend and I relocated to Schweinfurt, Germany, which will be my base moving forwards. I have many years experience as an athlete in competitive sport, having swam for 18 years, raced bicycles for 7 years, and been involved with triathlon for over 4 years. I have worked under Trisutto Coach Jo Spindler to my greatest triathlon achievements and have seen first hand how productive the Trisutto coaching philosophy is. I rely heavily on the science aspect of sport, but I find it so important to look past the numbers and truly get to know an athlete and find out what works for them psychologically and socially to create the ultimate coach-athlete experience and performance. This is why I sought out Trisutto and I look forward to continue learning from Brett and the Trisutto staff as part of the coaching team. Growing up in the Midwest, USA football, baseball, and wrestling were the traditional sports we took part in. However I always had a love for the water, and luckily I choose the path to swim competitively. I swam for 4 years at University and also took up bike racing whilst I was studying Sport Science and Biology. Upon completing a Masters degree in Sport Physiology I understood the underlying principles of how the human body works. It was also during my time in my Masters program that I started running, in turn discovering the sport of triathlon. After graduating from University, I accepted a position as coach and sport scientist for a company in Boulder, Colorado. For 5 years, I had the privilege to learn from some of the best coaches and athletes in Colorado and around the country. I have coached 4 professional triathlon victories, and I was also given the role of coach for the Cycling Academy Pro Cycling team during the 2016 season. During this year, I also coached 4 National Champions and 1 Olympic qualifier. I look forward to working with you towards your goals, big or small!

What have you achieved in your coaching career?

6 Years as Professional Endurance Coach 4x Professional Triathlon Victories (Challenge / Ironman / Xterra) Multi-Nationality Cycling National Champions (Namibia, Israel, USA, Slovakia) Coach of German Olympic Bronze Medal (Deaf Olympics Cycling), and Rio Olympic Games Cyclist (Namibia) Amateur victories and podiums at the Short to Long Course / Xterra / Duathlon disciplines.

Why do you work with Trisutto?

I discovered a passion for long course triathlon, and whilst competing myself, have found immense happiness being a professional coach and working with athletes from all over the world, towards whatever goals they have. Having utilized the Trisutto methods myself, I understand why the group is the most successful group in the world. The price you must pay for success in sport is hard work. There is no magic powder or golden ticket. I want to instill this in the minds of my athletes, and show them that consistency is king, and they must work towards the 99% they can control before they look at the 1%’ers. These are the guidelines I’ve always used, and knowing that Brett and Jo preach the same, reinforces my desire to work with a great company.

The Trisutto training method is the best. It's simple, straightforward and effective. Carson is very responsive and friendly, definitely knows his stuff. Despite not having raced yet, I feel the improvements in my fitness week after week.

After a deep search all roads end up with Trisutto Training , and after a brief conversation with Robbie he advise me to join Carson Athletes group, and for me this is the BEST recommendation, communication which i find THE KEY with your coach is excellent and on top of that the approach to transfer our conversations into a plan. I do feel that success will come as a consecuence of this working together, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

I started with Coach Carson 2 years ago. Since then I have improved my performance in a way I never could imagine. He´s always available for any inconvenience and he has adapted my training and schedule in the best way when is necessary.

I’ve only started working with Carson a few weeks ago, but I already wish I have “discovered" him earlier in my triathlon career. Besides being a professional coach who knows what he’s doing, he is also present at all times, and, what’s more important, genuinely and sincerely cares for me and my results. Also communication is a breeze, and a pleasure. Altogether it makes me very optimistic about my current and next seasons, and I already make some crazy plans with I hope Carson can help to realize.
