Tri nation triathlon training philosophies

  1. Triathlon is a team sport.
    At Tri Nation we pride ourselves on having created an environment that encourages and builds up our athletes. When you are training for an Ironman event you’ll do some of the mentally and physically hardest sessions of your life and having some great training buddies to push through these with you can make the world of difference.
  2. Family comes first.
    Our training philosophies work on fitting training into your life not the other way around. Not everyone has 20+ hours per week to devote to training and we’ll help you to ensure that other aspects of your life aren’t compromised whilst still gaining the results you are after.
  3. Targeted Training.
    Our Coaches led by Tim Franklin have a wealth of experience when it comes to Ironman training. Sessions are developed specifically to get you the best results possible and we don’t waste time on ‘junk miles’.
  4. Nutrition is critical to any long course race.
    The number one area where an athlete’s race can fall apart is in their nutrition plan. We will ensure that you are fuelled right with the assistance of the team from Apple to Zucchini. This includes nutritional advice, race day plans and sweat testing.
  5. Pacing is key.
    Too often we see athletes with fantastic bike splits who then fall apart on the run. Pacing is key to any triathlon. We will work with you to get your pacing right through aerobic testing and supported race specific rides.
  6. Have fun!
    Ironman training doesn’t have to boring. Join us and those long rides and runs will go by faster then you think!
