If you are looking for a tried and tested approach to improving your performance as a triathlete it makes sense to look to the methods used by two of the sport’s best athletes: the Brownlee brothers. Learning from their 40 years combined experience in the sport, and the coaching team who support them, is the best investment you’ll ever make in your athletic future.
Brownlee Fitness is based on a simple principle: we want to help anyone, of any standard, to achieve more. Achievement is simply measured by knowing that you are better equipped to meet your goals than you were yesterday, and better than you were last week.
We believe that consistency is the key to any successful training regime. Being able to repeat the same training week in and week out will build your fitness in layers, something that is critically important for an endurance sport like triathlon. Of course, to see these improvements you actually have to do the training – reading the plan on the sofa just won’t do!
To that end, we want you to enjoy the training, even though some of the sessions will be hard, and to work towards the goal provided the reason for doing the training in the first place. You may be able to train with a club or a group of friends, but if that’s not possible the team at Brownlee Fitness will be your constant companions in the journey towards a fitter, stronger, faster you.
