What Makes Vanguard Endurance Different!

Custom Coaching

Custom Coaching and the support services that we provide below are designed to provide the best possible chances for your success. The difference in coaching fee structures reflects the time commitment required to give you the best possible chance of achieving your goals.

What most coaching companies will not tell you is that it takes the same amount of time to write an elite program as it does a beginner age group athlete program. Where the true difference comes in is in the time taken to monitor, analyze data and communicate with athletes in order to gather the information required to maximize results. Unfortunately, most coaches simply don’t have the level of knowledge and/or skills within their coaching teams to do this data analysis correctly. So, while most coaches will offer “elite level plans” most are in truth not capable of providing them.

It is for this reason that we only use coaches elite coaching experience, and with a USA Triathlon Level 2 Coaches, or equivalent National Governing Body (NGB) certification. This ensures that you are getting the full level of support and knowledge that you have selected.

Video Analysis – Swimming – $150 per/session

Video Analysis – Running – $150 per/session

Video Analysis – In Running Analysis we are looking to get a clear picture of not just your biomechanics but also how your running form changes as you increase speed.

I have had the privilege of being coached by Justin Trolle at Vanguard Endurance for the past 8 months. It has been a game-changer for my mountain biking.

Justin’s expertise in endurance sport coaching is unmatched, and his coaching style is a perfect balance of challenge and support. Under his guidance, I’ve seen significant improvements in my race strategy, physiology and overall performance.

What sets Vanguard Endurance Coaching apart is the personalized approach they take. Justin understands the unique demands of mountain biking and tailors training plans to my individual strengths and weaknesses. The results speak for themselves, and I am grateful for the invaluable insights and improvements I’ve gained through this partnership.

I wholeheartedly recommend Justin Trolle and Vanguard Endurance Coaching to any serious cyclist or endurance athlete looking to reach new heights.


Keegan Hale - Elite Mountain Biker

I started working with Justin and the team Vanguard Endurance at the end of January of 2022. I contacted him about joining the team and he told me to come and do a practice to try it out with the team, I had just got to Colorado and I remember how hard it was to breathe and how much my body hurt but what I remembered most was how much he made me feel apart of the team and it was just day one for me.

I knew from then on that I wanted him as my coach and that he could really help me achieve my goals. I wanted to be part of his team. As I began practicing more with the team I made new friendships/teammates to train with and started building a coach/athlete relationship with Justin.

Justin not only sees my potential but has helped realize that potential as well and helped me build a plan to achieve my goals, he is an amazing coach who sees me as a person first and athlete second which goes a long way. I can always count on him and the team to support me through blood, sweat, and tears this sport has.
