Rockstar Triathlete Dennis Phipps Hit his Personal Record!

Rockstar Triathlete Dennis Phipps

Coaches Notes:

Coach Dennis is an integral part of the coaching process here at Full Circle Coaching. Without a proper bike fit on a triathlon or road bike everything suffers. Dennis’ Bike fits help the Full Circle Coaching athletes produce more power with lower heart rates and feel true comfort so they can focus on training and racing!

Dennis has been doing triathlons for a while and this year 70.3 North Carolina in October was the goal. It’s great when someone I have been mentoring to understand the coaching process applies all the details to his own training and gets awesome results just by following the darn instructions!

From finally getting the balance aspect of his swim, to mastering high power on the bike with higher rpms, whcih allowed him his fastest 13.1 off the bike.

Thanks for being an important part of Full Circle Coaching over the past 11 years. Your love of cycling and triathlon inspires us all. Thanks for sharing all your bike wisdom Dennis- Love your supplements too!- You are a true Rockstar Triathlete and Coach!

What is your age?

Why did you choose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?

I joined Fullcircle through a friend of mine, Ryan Williams. It’s a long story, but he passed away, and I met Erinne from Full circle at his memorial ride. And I haven’t left since then. I am one of the Full Circle Coaching’s cycling coaches and do all of the bike fits for the athlete’s.

What is/ was your “A” race for this season?

My A race for 2023 was North Carolina 70.3. And I did my personal best 5:28:15

What are your BIG goals?

My big goals for 2024 are full Iron Man in Barcelona next year in October and during the year to qualify for 70.3 World Championships.

Tell me about your successes so far!

My biggest success this year has been finishing the run very strong off the bike in all of my races

What were some of your biggest improvements in performance for each of the following? Swim, Bike, Run, and Nutrition/Health. 

Swim: My biggest improvement in the swim has been learning how to float and have balance in the water and now I have a good strong catch.

Bike: My biggest improvement in the bike has been staying more aerodynamic and utilizing the power meter more. Focusing on higher RPMS and sticking to my power numbers in training.

Run: My biggest improvement in the run has been with pacing better and learning to walk/ run correctly.

North Carolina 70.3 was my personal best – 5:28:15

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:

  1. Listening to my body and even skipping workouts when I’m feeling tired.
  2. Really looking at my training numbers.
  3. Learning and trying different nutrition and supplements to support my performance.

What excites you the most about being involved in running/triathlon?

What excites me most about triathlon is the people around me.
