COMPLETE YOUR FIRST OLYMPIC DISTANCE TRIATHLON...

If you are planning to do your first Olympic distance triathlon, you're in the right place.


You need a plan. With three sports to balance and having to build both endurance and technique, without overdoing it and getting injured, the odds are not in favour of athletes who take a random approach to training, or try to create a plan themselves without having the adequate expertise. 


This beginner Olympic triathlon training plan will help you easily complete your Olympic distance triathlon in just 8 weeks by:

  • Guiding you through the exact progression of training volume and intensity that will keep you healthy and injury-free, while building your endurance from the base up, and not on a foundation of quicksand as tends to happen for most beginners.

  • Help you understand the purpose of each workout, week, and phase of training, to make sure you execute the training in the right way.

  • Having a plan helps hold you accountable which makes you train consistently. Consistency in training is by far the number one factor that will determine how you do in your race.

...OR GO FASTER THAN YOU DID IN YOUR LAST

If you have already completed Olympic distance races in the past, but feel that you are a beginner triathlete (as opposed to an intermediate or advanced level triathlete), then this plan will help you go faster than you have previously, and help you get towards that next, intermediate level. 


It really isn't very difficult to get to a level where you can at least finish your races in the middle of the pack. But, it does require avoiding a few key mistakes that 80% of beginner triathletes seem to make. 


  • Not having a periodised and progressive training approach with base training, a build phase, and a peak phase.

  • Not having consistency in training. The majority of beginner triathletes who lack consistency also lack another important thing: a training program. It's not rocket science to realise that having a training plan gives you a level of accountability that makes you consistent in training, which is the number one factor in triathlon improvement, whether it's about going from beginner to intermediate, or from a kid starting out to an Olympic gold medal.

  • Not knowing how to add intensity to your workouts. In addition to consistency, intensity also plays a major part in your triathlon development. This is an area where a lot of athletes tend to get things wrong, either doing too little intensity, too much, or getting it wrong on the workout level with an inappropriate "dose" of intensity in those quality workouts. This plan takes the guesswork out of intensity with a proven progression that is manageable, but challenging enough to see some serious fitness gains that just plodding along or doing random intervals here and there can't give you.

PRICING

This translates to ~0.50€ per day. That's a remarkable price for a proven step-by-step plan to success, and for having to fumble in the dark with your training any longer.

My training plans aren't your typical run-of-the-mill plans. I have gone to great  lengths to ensure not only that these plans are progressing at an appropriate rate and have enough recovery built in (both of which are elements I've found to be missing in many other plans). But I've also made sure to within the plans teach you exactly how to get the most out of them.


Which sessions are the key sessions of this week? What's the purpose of this training phase? What do I do if I can't do the open-water swim in the schedule and have to do a pool swim instead?


These are the types of questions that this plan will answer for you. When you buy this plan you do not get just a calendar with random workouts. The plan is a massive PDF-document that is well structured so you can just quickly look at your plan overview, or dig into today's workout details, or check the general information and advice quickly and easily.


Best of all, your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you're not happy with the plan, I'll give you your money back. This makes the plan a completely risk-free investment for you. You have absolutely nothing to lose!

This is a completely risk-free investment. If you are not 100% happy with this training plan, just email me and you'll get a complete refund of your purchase.
