Coaching Services

Running, Cycling and Multisport Coaching and Consulting

I offer remote-based coaching and consulting for runners, cyclists and multisport athletes. I enjoy working with athletes of all levels of experience, fitness and ability. Helping others enjoy sport, challenge themselves and pursue their goals brings me a great deal of happiness. 

Who am I?

I'm Albert Harrison - most people call me Bert.

I was fortunate enough to grow up running and racing bikes. I ran cross country and track at Berry College from 2007-2011. I found duathlon as a post collegiate athlete. 

I am a four-time USA Triathlon All-American in duathlon, a three-time national champion, and a two-time age-group world champion. I finished 6th at the 2018 ITU Powerman Zofingen Duathlon World Championship. As of 2023, I am still competing as an Elite Duathlete, a Masters/Cat 2 road cyclist and an "Elite/Pro" mountain biker.

But of course, race results don't make you a good coach. I also received a master's degree in exercise science from Appalachian State University. In my time at App State, I worked closely with coach and physiologist David Morris to examine the effects of different oxygen concentrations on training intensity and cycling performance. Environmental physiology, strength training, bioenergetics and nutrition remain my primary interests in exercise science. My experience as a scientist has had a profound impact on my training and coaching philosophies.

I've had the opportunity to coach with four NCAA cross country and track and field programs (men's and women's teams). I've also had the opportunity to work with post-collegiate runners, cyclists and multi-sport athletes from all levels. From elementary school kids to the master's weekend warriors; state champions, to Boston qualifiers; ultramarathoners to Cat 1 cyclists.

My coaching philosophy centers around the athlete's overall health and his or her enjoyment of sport. I love helping athletes challenge themselves and pursue their goals. I enjoy applying the concepts I have learned as an exercise scientist and using the knowledge I have gleaned from over 20 years of involvement in endurance sports to formulate progressive training plans.

Whether you want to improve your sprint speed, raise your threshold power, run a fast mile or marathon - I'd like to help! Pricing is negotiable. We can create a plan tailored specifically to your needs. For more information, contact me by email.
