Nicole's Research

CONSISTENCY

Training is designed to allow athletes to consistently hit the mark with appropriate levels of challenge and sufficient recovery. 

REPEATABILITY

Training is challenging but manageable so that athletes can repeat multiple build weeks with  a basis for skill acquisition and little down time.

PROGRESSION

Training is cyclical with increasing volume and intensity interspersed with recovery periods which encourage positive adaptations. 

About Top Line Coaching

Top Line takes an athlete-centered approach: Our mission is to work with you, the athlete, to achieve your top athletic potential in balance with your health and life goals. Our philosophy is that happiness and enjoyment of sport lead to optimal performance.

We understand that appropriate challenge and consistency of training are required in order to see fitness gains which, in turn, enhance enjoyment! Our coaching programs are built on empirically based exercise physiology principles and tailored to each client's individual goals.

We understand that athletes maintain busy family, work, and personal lives. Therefore, we ensure that your plan fits with each of the components of your life with the aim to achieve a healthy balance among them.

Our coaching programs lead athletes through the appropriate phases of training stimulus, recovery, and adaptation. These phases are designed with race goals in mind to ensure that athletes are in peak physiological condition at the time of their goal event(s). Our programs are tailored to athletes' sport background, level of skill, and experience in competitive sports. Nicole interacts with each athlete daily in order to discuss progress, analyze metrics, and ensure continuous progress.
