Scott Flynn, MS, CSCS, triathlon coach
What Sets Us Apart?
- Professional Certifications-I hold certifications from two of the leading exercise science organizations in the world (ACSM and NSCA)! These aren't weekend courses with a take home test. They require area specific collegiate degrees, extensive knowledge, hundreds of hours of demonstrated skill, and rigorous testing.
- Collegiate training-I dedicated 6 years to learning the science of exercise and how to assist others in performance improvement.
- Coaching experience-I have been a triathlon coach for 5 years and coached athletes (young and old, new and experienced) to podium finishes, AG Nationals, half ironman first timers, and many more.
- Race experience-I've been racing for over 9 years, with multiple podium finishes earning All-American honors (top 5%) from the USAT in 2012 and 2013, and 2014.
- Mobility and Flexibility-I work with athletes in person and online from locations all over.
At Threshold, I like to keep it simple. Assess, analyze, plan and support.
You are assessed at the beginning of training to properly customize your program. I then analyze your strengths and weaknesses and create a specific plan to target those areas. Last, I support your efforts from start to finish.
Proper stimulus + Proper nutrition + Proper rest = Personal Record.
Proper stimulus is about how you train. Mileage without a goal is a slow, arduous and less effective way to train. Workouts are designed to improve major performance predictors (Lactate threshold, VO2max, economy, etc.). When combined with good eating habits, you'll see major improvements in no time. Rest is training. So, I use a set of unique rest periods to make sure you're prepared enough to hit the road hard the next day without potentially injuring yourself or over-training.

Threshold got it's name from the popular term "lactate threshold." As you probably know, improving the LT is the single best indicator of performance and the focus of most if not all training programs. Threshold also describes training "on the edge," a necessary means to get enough training stimulus that will lead to adaptation and improvement. Of course, improvement, is the point!
