“Coach Cube is the most detailed and caring coach I have ever had. His daily follow up is spotless and his workout routines have allowed me to get better as a triathlete without getting injured. Highly suggested.”
Stefano Papaleo

“TCF ( Coach Cube ) molded my workouts to fit my crazy schedule and to get the most out of my precious time.
The workouts were kick butt, and I grew as an athlete. The goals I set for myself were his goals too… Resulting in PR’s for me! Thanks TCF and Coach Cube!!!”

Samantha Allen Reid

“Very personable, helps achieve your goals/dreams while working AROUND your schedule. Couldn’t have done my half distance and took on a full without TCF’s help. Full confidence in myself when I have TCF to build my workouts and base. Couldn’t have had better experiences.”

Lee Meyer

“Was thrilled when Coach Cube took me on as an athlete. He was very respectful of the fact that I had been in the sport for almost 20 years. He challenged me and had me doing workouts I didn’t think I could do. He was also appropriately cautious with me because of being injury prone. If you are looking for a great coach…you just found one in Coach Cube, and TriCoachFlorida.
Feel the Burn! Thanks for being a great coach Cube!”

Samuel F. Wilkinson

“I am training for my third full ironman, the second using the services of Fred at Tri Coach Florida and would never do another race without his guidance! He has listened to all of my goals, all my conflicts with a busy family and work schedule and creates a program around all of it to make me strong and successful! If you are looking for a very affordable, caring and knowledgeable triathlon coach……look no further! Welcome to the family! Feel the BURN! Jay Brandt”

Jay Brandt

“I met Fred at IMFL 2014 when he was coaching 2 friends of mine. I watched them grow stronger under the eye of TriCoachFlorida and they were able to crush IMFL. I am registered for IMCHOO 2106 and I have been using TCF for 3 months now and feel stronger than ever. Fred has a way for athletes to work around their busy schedules (work, family, travel, kids) but still get the right training for your Race. I have cut my run pace by :30/mile and feel stronger on the bike already. The best part of TCF is the coach-athlete communication. Fred is always available for questions about race day or even the specifics of a training day. He answers questions in a very timely manner and is always helpful! I Highly recommend TCF if your looking to improve your performance in any distance race.”
