Description of Carson Christen

I have been a professional coach based out of Boulder, Colorado from 2012-2015 but now have relocated with my fiancée to Schweinfurt, Germany. I have many years experience as an athlete, around 25 years of swimming/cycling and triathlon. 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?

7 Years as Professional Endurance Coach 5x Professional Triathlon Victories (Norseman XTri / 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 reinforces my desire to work with TriSutto.

I have been with Carson for about 5 years. He has been amazing with tailor made workouts specific to my needs, age, and time available. I have dropped PR's in the 5K and my 2 mile. His communication with me was the best an athlete could hope for. He guided me through the entire adventure of running. I highly recommend him for any degree of running!  Love you brother!

Carson hat mich im Oktober 2018 erstmals gecoacht. Ich schätze ihn sehr, sowohl als Typ, als auch als Coach.
Das individuelle und abwechslungsreiche Training hat mir wahnsinnig viel Spaß gemacht und ich habe mich insbesondere beim Schwimmen bereits nach den ersten Wochen verbessert.
Leider zwingt mich ein schwerer Rennrad-Unfall seit Anfang November eine Pause einzulegen. Sobald ich wieder fit bin, werde ich das Coaching mit Carson definitiv wieder aufnehmen.

Very nice person.   I had trouble maintaining the schedule due to my busy lifestyle, but Christen was very understanding & responsive.   He is very knowledgeable and I have only heard good things from others here in the fitness mecca of the world- Boulder, CO.  I will pick up training with him again if my schedule permits!

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
