How do I know that the coach I’ve been matched with is a “good” coach?

Every TrainingPeaks Accredited Coach completed our accreditation process, which includes a variety of requirements by the coach. Each TrainingPeaks Accredited Coach has accomplished the following:

  • The coach is certified and insured through a national governing body such as USA Triathlon, British Cycling, Cycling Australia, etc.

  • Has been using TrainingPeaks to coach their athletes for at least six months

  • Has displayed that he/she can coach athletes through TrainingPeaks to help them reach their goals


Each TrainingPeaks Level 2 Accredited Coach has completed the requirements, listed above, and has also attended TrainingPeaks University (TPU) or completing the online equivalent. TPU is an intensive 3-day training conducted by TrainingPeaks staff. At TPU, coaches also learn about, WKO+, and TrainingPeaks mobile applications. Each Level 2 Coach is personally trained at TPU, making them more knowledgeable in the features of TrainingPeaks that help them analyze your data, communicate with you on a regular basis, and plan your season effectively and dynamically.

All TrainingPeaks Accredited Coaches must maintain these requirements to participate in the Coach Match Service.
