Coaching Services

Running, Cycling and Multisport Coaching and Consulting

I offer private, remote-based coaching and consulting for runners, cyclists and multisport athletes. I enjoy working with athletes of any level of experience, fitness or 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 grew up running and racing bikes. I ran cross country and track at Berry College from 2007-2011. And I found duathlon as a post collegiate athlete.

I am a four time USA Triathlon All-American in duathlon, a three time national champion, two time age-group World Champion and I finished 6th at the 2018 ITU Powerman Zofingen Duathlon World Championship. As of 2021, I am still competing as an Elite Duathlete and Cat 2 cyclist.

I received a master's degree in exercise science with a concentration in strength and conditioning from Appalachian State University in 2015. 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, fatigue, strength training for endurance sport, bioenergetics and sports 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 also have a USA Track and Field, level 2 coaching certification.

I've had the opportunity to coach with two NCAA cross country and track and field programs (men's and women's teams). I've worked with numerous post-collegiate runners and cyclists and at all levels; from elementary school kids to weekend warriors, state champions, Boston qualifiers, ultramarathoners and Cat 1 cyclists.

My coaching philosophy centers around the athlete's overall health and enjoyment of sport. I love helping athletes challenge themselves and pursue their goals. I enjoy applying my understanding of exercise physiology and biomechanics to prescribe productive workouts and 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.
