Helping You Maximize Your Performance
You might be contemplating your first triathlon or duathlon or maybe you think it’s time to take on an Ironman. The question is how do you prepare yourself with quality information to take you the next level? Since we are not professional coaches we have asked a group of coaches to help us get you the best advice in your training, health and fitness. We will continue to add new coaches to get more opinions on training. We will also provide links to all of these coaches should you wish to contact them yourself.
Please check our Clubs Page
These coaches have also generously donated coaching prizes in out Season Long Draw.

At NRG Performance Training we combine science and experience to optimize your performance. Head Coach Nigel Gray has over 8 years of coaching experience and has been traveling around the world racing as a Pro for the last 11years. To ensure the most effective training program we use lactate testing to set out individualized heart rate and power zones as well as monitoring performance improvements. These zones are then incorporated into a program that is designed to have your training fit into your lifestyle and not the other way around. Our individualized programs will optimize your training time and race performance whether you are a beginner or professional athlete. At NRG Performance Training we believe in offering the highest level of service and we believe the only way to accomplish this is by limiting the number of athletes each coach will work with. Are you ready to maximize your performance?
TRI-TRAIN is owned by Coach Jason Hervey: “I have been trained as a coach and personal trainer from experts in both Canada and the USA. I also draw upon my own experience as a coached athlete to put myself in your shoes (and goggles)! Triathlons require dedication, desire, and physical demands on the body. However, it’s not just about surviving the race, it’s about embracing the sport as part of a healthy and active lifestyle. I began this business to help others who find themselves ‘tri-curious’, wanting to discover triathlon or improve their past performance but lack the knowledge or time to implement a proper training plan, avoid injury and work with others in an upbeat social environment. Let me help you discover your hidden triathlete within, break personal bests this year and set new goals for the future!”
