“Michael has been coaching me for 9 years and the best part has been the relationship we have developed. We can talk about anything and he always takes into consideration how all aspects of my life affect training and racing. He is very flexible and we make adjustments in my schedule if needed. I always know that my plan is tailored specifically for my needs. The workouts? Some of the most fun and creative I have ever had. Training is so much fun because there is always a new challenge to look forward to.Michael is always available to answer any question or to give any advice. In the years he has coached me I have faced some challenges and he has been 100% supportive. Last but not least, his coaching has made me a stronger athlete and I was able to qualify for Kona!”


“After almost 30 years racing triathlons I decided to hire a coach. Work and family life were taking over the training and my racing times were slowing. I wasn’t really worried about the times but I had lost a bit of the zeal and felt I had wasn’t giving or getting my best. I needed help and immediately called Michael. We have now been working together for about 8 years and the relationship has been great. I chose him for his experience, a positive attitude, and a personal approach.  Michael listens to my goals, fitness level, and time commitments, and tailors an interesting program just for me.”


“At the Lovato Performance Training Camp, my experience not only rocketed my training but also introduced me to a new tri-family.  While training amongst the majestic Flatirons, Michael Lovato’s professional resume as a triathlete is enough to believe that this guy knows what he’s doing. But more impressive is his natural ability to connect to people and translate his expertise to the various levels and abilities of each athlete. As coach, Michael was professional, articulate, funny, and personal. He got to know every one of us campers. Pacing poolside barking drills and complementing efforts. Spanning the bike courses either riding along or in a nutrition packed support vehicle (coke and chips!). And hustling up and down the run courses by running or biking. Always checking our “vitals”, lending advice and infusing motivation. And in between workout sessions, Michael educated and enlightened us on nutrition and training as well as offered tips for race day. And he has been in touch with us since the camp ended, making himself available for any questions.”
