Athlete Testimonial of the Week: Adam Fisher

I have been with Malone Coaching for 9 months, and have surpassed my expected abilities by leaps and bounds.   Prior to Malone Coaching, I was utilizing a popular workout plan book, which had me spending significant time training under a generic plan.  Once coming onboard, Katie sat down and discussed my time commitments, goals for the season and future hopes and expectations.   Through working with her, I was able to train less over a week’s time, and still significantly outperform past performances.  

 

The one on one training sessions, allows the coach to effectively break down your mechanics and work with you on proper form and technique. The effectiveness of this is evident in my improvements in a comparison of my swim at the Ironman Louisville in August 2012, and the Leadman Epic Tri in September 2013.   For the Ironman I was swimming 3 to 4 times a week, and completed the 2.4 mile swim in 1:16:18. The Leadman swim was a 3.1 mile (5k) leg that I completed in 1:22:42, that is only 6 minutes and 24 seconds slower to cover an additional 7/10th of a mile. This improvement was done while maintaining a 2/3 swim session per week plan.

 

This year I have also experienced numerous PR’s, consistent top 10 and top 5 finishes in various runs, National USAT Age-Group Championship qualification and consistent results at every race. Katie has provided me with the tools to exceed the goals I have set, the motivation to keep me focused and the encouragement to bring it all together. All of this was done while maintaining a positive attitude, and encouraging spirit on the sidelines of the races for everyone on her team.
