Welcome to Mountain Peak Fitness Coaching & Training Systems! Here you will find information on how you will begin receiving your scheduled workouts and communicate with your coach on a daily and weekly basis.
We will begin first by having you fill out our Athlete Profile and sign the waiver below. Then select either the Running Profile or Cycling Profile to fill out. This will give your coach more detail into your current and past training.
We will create a Training Peaks account for you if you don't already have one. Training Peaks is where you will find your scheduled workouts and data analysis tools to have a deeper look into your training. Your completed training data will be uploaded to this account at the end of each workout or as often as possible. Learn more below.
At the end of each week you will fill out your TTA Form (Training Time Availability). In this form you will let your coach know how much time you have available to train for each day of the week. This allows us to properly schedule your workouts and training plan. Your schedule is continually refined and scheduled weekly or bi-weekly, based on your feedback and training data analysis of your completed workouts.
Each morning you will be emailed your workouts for the next 2 days, you can also view your training schedule at TrainingPeaks.com or through the mobile app for your smartphone or tablet (Apple, Android, Kindle). To learn more about setting up your Training Peaks account and downloading the mobile app, click here.

+ Communicating with your coach
Once your TP account is setup and connected to your coach, you will begin receiving your workouts. After you complete a workout, visit your account, upload a workout file or enter in data manually if GPS device wasn't used, then post any comments or feedback in the pre & post activity comment section (post how you felt, how the workout went, etc.). You don't have to post comments for all workouts, just key workouts or if asked to do so by your coach.
You will stay in touch with your coach via email, phone consults, texting and video chat. It is imporant to keep your coach updated on any changes that you need to make to your schedule, workout feedback, how your feeling, etc.
Each week you will fill out our Training Time Availability Form (TTA Form). This is an essential form for you to fill out before each upcoming week so your coach knows which days you have available to train and how much time you have available. It is best to fill this out each Saturday or Sunday for the upcoming week. This will allow your coach to effectively schedule your workouts. You can access this form in the upper right hand corner of our website, under "Forms" at any time or visit www.mountainpeakfitness.com/tta. Select your coach, fill out the form and hit the submit button.
