  • Who is Efficient Endurance?
    I'm Chris Searle, a professional coach from Norfolk, United Kingdom. I spent 11 years as a professional swimming coach, working with swimmers from a foundation to international level, coaching swimmers from scratch to National titles in Great Britain. I worked with swimming clubs; Norfolk county as head coach and National Talent programs. I have been competing in triathlon for 10 years, competing for Great Britain at Sprint and Standard Distance. I am a qualified Swimming, Running and Triathlon Coach. If you would like to know more about my coaching journey check out the 'About' section.
  • What is the story behind Efficient Endurnace?
    Efficient Endurance was born through the idea that, for amateurs, training time is limited so needs to be used effectively. Having spent a lot of time with triathletes, runners and coaches during my first years coaching the sport, I realised that many athletes and coaches do not know why they do what they do. This caused a lot of training time being wasted with low quality, non-targeted workouts. I started Efficient Endurance as a way to both give athletes a program that is effective at boosting their performance towards their goal and provide the knowledge to them as to why they are doing the workouts.
  • What makes Efficient Endurance different?
    We realised quickly that athletes like to have structure but are also smart and like to know the 'why' behind their training. Often after 10 weeks of following a plan motivation begins to suffer. This is normally during the main build phase of a training plan. We found that giving athletes the knowledge as to why they are doing EVERY session keeps them far more motivated to the end of their plan, giving far better results. This is why we provide a full description with every session as to WHY the session is where it is and how it is benefiting you.
