“Picking up a new sport as an adult is daunting. The support and encouragement from the World Multisport team and the rest of the beginners made this a really enjoyable course. I built new friendships along the way and looked forward to every session. I learnt so many triathlon fundamentals as well as tips & tricks I didn’t realise I needed to know, finishing the course feeling so much more comfortable and confident to continue on with triathlon”

The Countdown Is On...
Our Beginner Courses Will Enable You To:
If we had to choose the number one problem that our beginner athletes 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 our swim and triathlon courses. 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.
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.
We've been training beginner athletes 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 beginner triathlon 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.
