Blog Title: The Renegade Triathlete Psychology System Review
As a triathlete that is always looking to improve my training, nutrition and ultimately, my PRs, I can become overwhelmed with the volume of information that is available from the Internet, books, magazines, etc. I’m sure you feel the same way; there is no shortage of training and nutrition advice out there (for better or worse).
It’s a completely different story, however, when it comes to the mental training protocols for triathletes. This information is scarce, and often what you can find is just the general sports psychology paradigms that have been around decades. As six time Ironman Champion Dave Scott puts it “There’s no question, the component of triathlon training that is lagging behind is the mental component. We haven’t done a very good job of integrating psychology into training programs”
The Renegade Triathlete Psychology System was created by a team of alternative psychology coaches and elite triathlon coaches and competitors, to specifically address the most common challenges that we face in our training and racing, such as:
Lack of Confidence
Losing Focus - not sticking to the game plan
Pain: fatigue, cramps, nausea, etc.
Accelerated Healing from Injuries
Strong Training... but Lack-Luster Racing
Worry and Anxiety over the “Uncontrol-ables”
Learning to Trust your Training and Abilities
The Renegade Triathlete Psychology System differs from all of the other sports psychology products out there in two ways:
- It's specific to triathletes. There is no doubt that the creators of this system went to great lengths to cover as many aspects of triathlon training and racing as possible. They drew upon their own experiences, but also consulted with elite coaches and their triathletes for insights and feedback.
- It utilizes alternative sports psychology. The three main tools are hypnosis, NLP, and Energy Mechanics (a form of acupuncture).
- These guys and this system are results-oriented. They admit up-front that they are intentionally short on theory, and only care about results. All of their techniques are outside of mainstream, but as you will see from the testimonials on the website, so are the results.
One of the great things about this system is that it gives you several different techniques to test out for any of the areas you need to improve. My personal favorites are the hypnosis sessions. I was a little skeptical at first, because all I could think about was my brother doing funny things up on stage at a comedy show when he was hypnotized. But these audio sessions are nothing like that! It just feels like 20 minutes of relaxation, with the coach taking you through any of the three segments of a race, or building confidence, or recovering faster from training. I felt great after each session, and within a couple of weeks started noticing improvements in several aspects of my training... without any conscious effort on my part.
The NLP and Energy Mechanics techniques are very interesting and have become a staple of my training and racing. Both of these are performed in-the-moment and have proved to work well for any negative feelings that crop up, especially late in a race. They are also very subtle, so you never have to feel self-conscious about using them.
The one drawback I had in learning these last two techniques is that I’m a visual learner. Although the descriptions are quite detailed and there are photos, I really would have done better with some video tutorials. Maybe they will add this feature to the product in the future.
The Renegade Triathlete Psychology System is a valuable resource for any triathlete that believes that he/she can improve upon their mental training and preparation for racing. Although some of the psychological challenges can differ from the rank beginner to the elite professional, these techniques can be adapted and used by all of us to finally start “training our brains”.
At the time of this writing the price is $57 US. Which seems to be quite a bargain, as that just one session around here with a sports hypnotist (who may know nothing specific to triathletes) is a whopping $125. Another nice feature is that these guys offer free email coaching for sixty days, as well as a solid money-back guarantee.
