The C26 Club

Nail Your A-Race with the C26 Training Philosophy

The C26 Club Plan for 2024

The C26 Club is a great way to be a part of the C26 Team for your 2024 season!  Along with up to 30 weeks programmed by a C26 coach, you'll get invites to team events, priority camp registration, our Athlete Training guide, informative training emails, zoom calls, and access to buy C26 team racing gear.

The Club is designed for self-coached athletes but includes the option of email support from one of our new C26 coaches for the first month to help get you moving in the right direction. You will get occasional support emails with helpful training information, along with a plan structured for your A-Race that builds in recovery, along with taper for two other races.

The Club training plans are all built with the C26 philosophy—getting you race-ready without the burnout and overuse of your body. Hundreds of athletes have successfully finished their first Sprint, Olympic, 70.3, and Ironman by simply following the C26 Plans.

See what our athletes are saying about C26:

Bill Calkins

“I joined the C26 Club program because I knew from previous years that I wasn’t good at creating my own training plans and sticking to them. As a relatively inexperienced triathlete, I was trying to cobble together a plan based on what I knew other athletes were doing and what I saw on tri magazine websites—not customized to my strengths, weaknesses and experience level. Enter C26 and specifically, Coach Mike. After assessing my goals, race plan and getting to know my availability to train, workouts appeared in Training Peaks, and I quickly realized my previous plans had lacked structure and purpose. Having a set plan and schedule that fit my life (as a husband, dad and full-time employee) allowed me to train smarter and positive results have followed. Having a coach entering workouts in Training Peaks helped hold me accountable and removed the guesswork. Joining the club is one of the best moves I’ve made in the sport so far.”

“Mike and I have been working together since October 2022. Prior to finding C26, I was self-trained and had participated in one 70.3 and a couple of other endurance races. I performed well, but there was a sense of doubt if I was not going about training appropriately. The books had a one size fits most mentality, and the training felt rigid. Working with Mike has helped alleviate those feelings and so much more. Mike was able to take feedback about my workouts and general life schedule, and adhere to a training plan that fit. All of this together led to a huge confidence boost leading to a 25 minute PR in a year of the sport. Incredibly excited to continue working with Mike and C26 in the years to come.”
