Winning is a Mindset Not a Spot on the Podium
Our Advanced Iron Distance training is built to help experienced athletes achieve their peak performance and qualify for World Championship events. An athlete attempting this plan should already have 2 or more years in the sport & be able to train 12-15 hours a week without getting injured or overtrained.
"As far as the program is concerned, I could not be happier. I can honestly say that I am race ready not just to finish but to PR. I can literally see improvement not just in my speed but in how I feel and how confident I am. A full IM is a long race and lots of things can happen. Should I not hit my target time, it won't be because of the plan but because of my own race execution."
