About

A commitment to the athlete and their journey through the sport.

Yoder Performance was started to provide real triathlon coaching and give back to a sport that has given me so much. Throughout my years racing as a professional triathlete, I have grown through success and failure, injury and times of strength, and through mentorships of my own. Absorbing all of my experiences, I have developed my methodology based on the fundamentals of simplicity and consistency. Triathlon success derives from doing the fundamentals right, committing to the process, and taking joy in your journey. I take the utmost accountability in my role as coach and my objective is to provide steadfast dedication to every one of my athletes. I believe triathlon is a sport for all and every athlete has their own reason for taking on its challenges. My coaching is dynamic and inquisitive; always striving for betterment through commitment to the process. My role is to assist and guide; to encourage and be patient; and to instigate positive change and belief in goals that were once thought unattainable.

communication

To provide effective coaching, I incorporate athlete feedback and observation to assess and coach my athletes. I prioritize communication and constant vigilance to progress each athlete appropriately. Patience and listening skills are critical to fully understanding what the athlete needs and how to manage their training. I believe that coaching is much more than simply writing a training program. Coaching is about the daily process, decision making, and professional oversight to enable the athlete to reach their goals.

Compassion and consideration

I love coaching because of my drive to make meaningful impact in others lives. My goal is to empathetic and constant in the care for my athletes. Although I demand a high level of commitment and discipline from all of my athletes, I strive to be in tune to how my athletes are feeling and what may be happening outside of training. Compassion and consideration of athlete’s needs are fundamental to my coaching methods.

about me

ANDREW YODER

Andrew Yoder is a professional triathlete and triathlon coach based in Lancaster, PA. He has developed his own unique training methodology based on knowledge gained over a decade of professional racing and integrating learnings from his experiences with the best minds in triathlon.

My experience with him has challenged me, bettered me and motivated me in the sport again. He thinks everything out precisely for the good of the individual.

Andrew's principled and transparent coaching methods helped me see the possibilities in my future.  This year, I qualified for the Boston Marathon after many attempts prior to his leadership and I also qualified for the 2018 USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships.

That empathetic foundation paired with the wealth of knowledge he has accumulated over his decade-plus of competitive racing has enabled him to craft simple yet effective training plans that fit well into a busy lifestyle while still maximizing performance output.

Last year, I finished 22nd in my AG at the USA Sprint Nationals in Omaha, Nebraska. I competed again this year and after one year of training with Andrew, I placed 8th in my AG and earned a spot on Team USA and will compete at the World Triathlon Championships in Australia in 2018!

Training and racing triathlons is by no means easy but Andrew certainly makes it enjoyable and his genuine character makes it easy to buy into and believe in his program.

Beyond the basic weekly plan, working with Andrew definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone and into an entirely new level of training. His training plan not only ensured that I was well prepared for race day, but he also turned me into a better overall athlete.

I'm internally driven, but Andrew's belief in me as an athlete surpassed my own goals and vision. He invited me to explore who I am as an athlete, and aim higher.
