Description of Rafal Medak
What have you achieved in your coaching career?
Multiple Kona qualifiers, Ironman podiums, 70.3 podiums, Significant improvements for all my athletes reflected in the results My individual focus on each athlete allows them to improve quickly and reach their potential in the sport
Why do you work with Trisutto?
I have natural empathy with age group athletes trying to balance the demands of our sport into a hectic work lifestyle. Since August 2014 I’ve attended multiple training camps with Brett Sutton in St. Moritz, Gran Canaria and Poland, carefully studying the Trisutto.com approach. I focus my coaching on Polish-speaking athletes, as well as athletes leading busy lifestyles. My coaching motto: ‘Train hard, train smart, maximise your available time, get results.
I participated at the Trisutto Camp in St. Moritz guided by Rafal mid of August 2017. My objective was on the one hand to train hard and on the other hand to learn more about different aspects of triathlon sport. The camp with Rafal completely fulfilled my expectations. I appreciated his focused feedback, his engagement to give us the most of this week, and his willingness to answer any question whenever they occured. Thanks to Rafal I had a fully satisfying week and really learned a lot. I am looking forward to attend a future camp on my way to my first full-distance Ironman in 2018.20 Aug 17
Rafal has been the decisive coach in my IronMan preparation. Beyond great amount of key insights and high-level experiences Rafal has really a talent of understanding persons and their way of training. He was able to uncover, for me and other participants, quickly and sharply the weaknesses as well as the strengths of everyone. I feel much more confident going to my next event in 5 weeks, I also feel more confident to train during business trips and relaxed not to have to worry so much about a training plan. Indeed Rafal based his approach on key foundations around which everyone can build his "own castle" depending on his needs, his objectives and his skills. I am looking forward the next camp!23 Aug 17
Worked with Rafal for over a year culminating in a Kona appearance.
The last year has been a great learning experience for me. The communcation has been spot on !!! Even been told off a couple of times.
Rafal is very personable with great knowledge. His sets are delivered on time and with a very good structure. If I have not checked in, he is on my case. Just what I needed!!.
More importantly he is a good guy as well as a passionate coach.
Many thanks Rafal22 Nov 17
