Breathe Better

If we had to choose the number one problem that our beginner triathletes come to us with it's struggling for breath in the pool. Which is why this is our focus in the very first week of the Be A Triathlete course. We'll explain exactly HOW you should be breathing then give you an easy to follow exercise that you can even do in your pool at home to improve your breathing and not be gasping for breath at the end of each lap.

Run Further

Running seems like the most simple of the three sports but we see so many athletes (even the experienced ones) getting their run training wrong. If you want to improve your running and be able to run further without stopping there are some key training concepts that you need to incorporate. In our experience most people need to slow down (I know you're probably thinking you can't go any slower), we'll explain more in week one of Be A Triathlete.

Feel Confident

We've been training beginner triathletes for a long time and you'd be surprised how long it takes most people to take that first leap from thinking about a triathlon to starting training for one. This is our big reason for starting the Be A Triathlete course. To take down the barriers, remove the excuses and give you the confidence to swim, bike and run your way to not only your finish line but a healthier and happier you.

WHY CHOOSE US

There I was. I had just moved to Brisbane, Australia and was a complete beginner trying to train for my first triathlon.  The thing is, at the time I didn't know what training to do or even what to wear.

I plucked up the courage to join my local triathlon club. Everyone there was racing these HUGE distances while my goal was to finish a sprint triathlon. One of the girls in the group actually laughed when she asked me what I was training for and I said the sprint triathlon on the Gold Coast.

If I wasn't so determined to challenge myself by finishing this triathlon I would have given up.

Ready to take the next step?

week online triathlon program that will take

beginner triathlon training Magda

CASE STUDY: Magda Michelak

STARTING POINT: When we first met Magda she struggled to swim more than 100m non-stop, she was new to cycling and she'd done some running to stay fit and active. Magda is a mum to 2 small children so was driven by the desire to show her kids what you could achieve with a positive mindset.

AFTER THE TRAINING PROGRAM: Magda completed her beginner course and her first triathlon. Not content to stop there Magda went on to train for her first Ironman and continues to set herself new goals and challenges. Now her husband and kids are into triathlons too!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, to get started you are going to need to set yourself up with some equipment so here are the basics: Swimming: togs, goggles, swim cap (if you have long hair), pull buoy and fins Cycling: a roadworthy bike though it can be a mountain bike, hybrid, commuter, road bike or anything in between. Bike helmet and either cycling shoes if you have clip in pedals or just your runners. Running: running shoes and preferably some dri-fit clothing (to wick the sweat away and keep you comfortable)

As long as your bike is safe to ride you can use it for both training and in your triathlon. We find that most people start out on a commuter or mountain bike or even borrow one off a friend! Then once they have finished their first triathlon and loved it they make the commitment to buy their first road bike.

Yes of course! The swim sessions in the Be A Triathlete course are targeted towards beginner level swimmers. We focus on building your strength and fitness in the water so that you can swim further without stopping or getting out of breath.

All the swim sets in the program let you adjust the total distance and the rest needed.

Our focus in this course is to help you become more comfortable in the water, build your strength and improve your fitness. We focus on elements of your technique that will help you achieve these three things which are namely your breath control, head position and kick.

We don’t recommend focusing on swimming drills at this stage unless you are under the supervision of a swimming instructor. For you to make changes on your swimming stroke you need to be able to receive direct feedback on your stroke and be swimming atleast four times per week.
