Let's Get Started



This plan was based on my experiences racing and preparing for triathlon racing and the lessons I have learned along the way. We will teach you a smart approach to continuous improvement.



This is a Training Plan for athletes who have previous racing/training experience and whom are proficient in all 3 disciplines.



It is designed where you can insert races into the schedule at various points by simple removing the training sessions for that week and inserting the 'race week' workouts from the week of your 'A' event.
