Peter’s extensive experience gives him a unique ability – he is a guide, an advisor and a friend. Peter is is always willing to share his wisdom – whether it is setting goals for the season, planning a race, or figuring out how the training plan fits into your goals. Under his guidance I reduced my half-iron time from 6:15, to 5:16 in two years. I also finished my first Ironman and felt confident and in-control through the entire event.
Peter will help you figuring out which goals are reasonable and are achievable given the time and the level of commitment you have at your disposal, so you and your family can set the expectations before the training started.
Peter is always there for you, regardless of what triathlon-related question you might have. He has so much experience, and won so many races in all conditions, that he will have an educated and balanced opinion on any aspect of triathlon racing: from equipment, to scheduling, to handling surprises that each race will invariable have in store for you.
In addition, Peter is always there for you, especially when you need him most – right before the race day, when you might have that last-minute question that you have not thought of until the last moment.
It is hard to imagine more experienced, caring and wise coach, who genuinely cares about you and your race, and who will help you get faster and better at triathlon racing. I am very fortunate that Peter Russo is my coach.

Stas Antons, Peter is always there for you

I am 41, happily married, co-homeowner, full-time CT technologist, and avid (well, actually addicted) fitness enthusiast. I stumbled upon triathlon in my early 30′s and never looked back. By my 3rd season involved with the sport I was dabbling in long course training and had finished my first Ironman in Lake Placid. I wouldn’t say long course was instantly infectious, but I knew with a little time and direction it would be a challenge worth trying once again. I recently finished my 6th IM and am planning #7 for 2014.
By 2010 my passion towards long course was gaining momentum, and I was searching for a more individualized training schedule. That is when I approached Peter Russo. Peter is very well known in the tri community for his amazing athletic speed and endurance, two disciplines he excels at; and as a coach, Peter excels just the same. Peter listens to my personal goals and then works with me to design a training plan with the intensity and discipline conducive to my needs. Peter always emphasizes the positive, and enforces the talent of each and every one of his athletes.
