What people are saying


“Tom’s Ironman training program produced great results. There were 10 of us that did Ironman following various programs. Those who followed Tom’s program had the best finishing times – the proof is in the pudding. In addition to emailing the weekly workouts to his clients, Tom works out with us and provides feedback live and in person. He puts his heart and soul into his training programs.”

– Wally G.

“My husband and I started with Tri 101 three years ago with limited background in swimming, biking or running. We’ve since crossed the finish line in multiple sprint races, a few marathons, half Ironman’s, and one Ironman. Our lives have changed over the last few years in a myriad of ways, all for the better.”

– John & Kellie H., Coach “Grads” extraordinaire!

“When I registered for my very first half Ironman I was very nervous. 1.2-mile open water swim! Half marathon after a 56-mile bike! Am I crazy!

However, Tom’s Half Iron training program-built confidence in me weekly. He corrected my many swim problems, passed on sooo much knowledge about nutrition, managing workload throughout the race, and an actual race strategy to follow. I lined up the morning of ready to rock.

Making me a lean mean fit machine with a plan was not the best part. It was the friends I made along the way that I still stay in contact with today. Race with. Train with. Complain with. Nothing felt better than sharing my fears, pain and finally the accomplishment with someone else. I do not think I could have ever completed the race without the program.”

– Donny T. – The Man with a Legendary 70.3 Finish Line Celebration!

“The Half Ironman training program was the most emotionally fulfilling time of my life and I plan on reliving the experience. The program included weekly training sessions, physical health, mental health, nutrition, race day strategies, and Coach Tom. He supported me along the way, and he encouraged me to do my best. Thanks for an amazing experience. ”

– Fern H., TRI 101, Half and Full Ironman Training Program Grad

“We were the ‘non-Believers.’ We had heard about Tom Ryan’s Ironman coaching while speaking with another local Ironman finisher he had coached. As we listened, both my husband and I thought, ‘His training style included dramatically LESS training time than other coaches.’ Two other athletes, coached by Tom told us, ‘His approach to training is drastically different due to his emphasis on rest, perceived effort, and lifestyle.’ We decided to go with Tom, starting with a 70.3. Now, we’ve been with him for two Ironman’s! While other athletes were getting injured and burned out, we remained healthy and energetic!”

– Jerry and Jeri D. – Texas

“I remember saying that to myself as I drove to the first tri101 workout. Here I am, a 42-yr-old ex-athlete, 25 lbs. overweight with two knee surgeries under my belt. I was slightly intimidated and knew I’d probably embarrass myself. When I joined TRI 101 I could not run 1 mile, I was surprised how a little dedication from me changed that so quickly. I finished the program and completed two sprint triathlons in the same year! I have since competed in two 15k runs and have plans for my first half ironman. Tom’s tri 101 program showed me a path to get myself back in shape, which in turn has positively impacted all other areas of my life.”

– Jerry and Jeri D.

“Ironman was a race and I wanted to tackle. Yet, a cancer battle consumed a good part of 2012. The next year, Tom created a training program that balanced my lifestyle which included a wife, a five-year-old daughter, and a newborn son, along with a job that required monthly travel. Tom’s approach taught me the balance between training – life and what he calls an athlete’s #1 workout – REST. Ironman training did require a great deal of time. Yet, it worked! ‘m ready to do it again. ”

– Walt C., Ironman Finisher
