Chris Hauth is a former Olympic swimmer that quickly joined the ranks of world-class triathletes. In 2006 Chris won the Ironman Coeur D’Alene and went on to be the first American amateur & 4th overall American at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. After 12 years in finance, Chris nowadays exclusively runs his coaching program ‘AIMP’ for athletes throughout the country and throughout the world. With AIMP he not only works with ultra swimmers, bikers or runners: his ultra endurance approach and mindset coaching is applied to athletes from solo-sailing to Nordic Olympic skiers, even military Special Forces and executives in the corporate world.
Besides age group wining triathletes, Chris has coached Western States top finishers, Ultraman winners and plenty of swimmers towards age group nationals and Olympic Trials. Chris is focused not only on the physical training for ultra-endurance sports, but heavily focuses on the mental side as well. Whether just starting out, or looking to reach the top levels in the ultra-endurance world, Chris has the proven results to work with any athlete. Many of Chris’s former athletes were beginners in the endurance world and have now moved on to athletic events and adventures they never thought possible.
AIMP is an advanced training program for the ultra endurance athlete. Going long is a serious endeavor and although there are plenty of athletes that just ‘give it a whirl’, the ultra distance contains risks with every mile you go past that start line. Whether you are looking to finish feeling strong & with a smile, or looking to race for a result, an ultra endurance event or endeavor contains too many variables that cannot be avoided. With outstanding preparation and knowledge going into your event or adventure, many of these variables can be controlled and even embraced. This is where effective coaching comes into play.
You may be the athlete that has successfully completed a training program and is looking to advance their training or you may be the athlete looking to qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. Many athletes join AIMP to finish their next endurance event feeling strong with the best possible result or for that last step needed overcoming the distance for any ultra endurance event. For either outcome, AIMP was designed to help you reach that next level.
The challenge in the ultra endurance world is not primarily the physical. While AIMP Coaching can help you get to the starting line of your endurance event prepared physically for most any distance or adventure, it is the mental game that will help you not only finish, but grow and embrace the challenge that lies ahead. AIMP focuses equally on the mindset needed for ultra endurance events and helps you grow as an athlete as well as a person to apply the lessons of the ultra endurance training & racing to any aspect of our lives: career, family or any challenge you can imagine.
