I joined Ultimate Multisport in June of 2019. I was looking for accountability and structured workouts but I've gained so much more. I've met amazing teammates, traveled to new destinations for training and camp, been pushed beyond what I thought my limits were (in a good way!) In just 3ish short months of training with Jimi, I was able to take off over an hour off my half Ironman time!! Fast forward to 2020 and I was eager to see what I could do with my Ironman time.
Obviously COVID struck and plans were derailed. I fell into the mundane cycle of quarantine and work and was feeling discouraged with my body image and lack of racing. Jimi challenged me to run every morning for 30 days and I honestly thought he was crazy, also pretty sure I laughed when he said it. You could say I have a strong dislike for running and have not always been the most disciplined with getting all of my workouts in. What was just 30 days back towards the end of July has now turned into a quest of 200 days without missing or shortening a workout (February 10th, where you at?!)
I have gained so much throughout this journey that has turned me into a stronger person. I have woken up earlier than I care to admit but now naturally wake up early and can tackle more on my days off work. I look forward to my workouts rather than dread them. I can workout in any sort of weather which will definitely be an advantage for race day. Most of all I have been able to completely change my mindset. I've been able to just clear my mind when the going gets tough and get through it. Who knows how the long the streak will continue but I will definitely look back on this time during challenges throughout life and know I can tackle anything!
Jimi has helped me improve in so many aspects. I've gotten faster and stronger in all disciplines of triathlon. I've become resilient when challenges arise and have become more confident. Training with Ultimate Multisport has definitely been a blessing in my life. I'm eagerly looking forward to more races and the training journey to come!
"Having Coach Jimi guide me has made a dramatic impact on my swim and bike. The training plan Coach Jimi developed for me has been spot on, even with the added difficulty of working around my Achilles problems. His training plan has been the key to my gains this year. So far I have set PRs on both my Olympic and Half Iron distances this year and with his continued outstanding coaching I am confident I will do the same for my Full Ironman." -David, MI
"Coach JImi understands my abilities and limitations better that I do and that's why he has been able to push me beyond my comfort zone in all three disciplines, all while keeping me free from overuse and other such injuries. His advice and insights have been monumental in my success as well. I now have the confidence to push myself beyond previous expectations. I credit Jimi's belief in me and his abilities as a coach, as the reason for my success this race season. Thanks, coach!" -Tony, MI
"I believe having you as my coach is one of the best decisions I have made since I started Triathlon." - David (MI)
"Coach Bones worked out a game plan to fit my race plan and goals. I stuck right to the plan. I can honestly say that with his help, I finished well before the times I expected. He came up with a perfect individualized plan for me that fit my schedule and abilities. His experience and knowledge was instrumental to getting me to the finish line. I gained monster bike speed and ended the year with my first podium finish! Thanks for an injury free and successful season!" - Seth (Holly Springs NC)
"During those times when I didn't believe in myself, your confidence in me gave me motivation to keep going. Your online feedback was helpful and encouraging. You were always available, able to answer my questions, and ease my concerns. You made me realize that I had another whole new gear on my bike." -Raina (Lansing MI)
"You recommended elite personal coaching for my first Ironman event. That was the perfect plan for me. Even with a bad ankle sprain, right in the middle of the meat of my training plan, I was able to do the extraordinary task of finishing Ironman. You were right there, each day, assuring me of my success. Great training plan! Thank you for all of your help!" -Carissa (Lansing MI)
