Beyond Generic Plans

Tri 1st Custom™ Triathlon Training Tailored To You

At Tri 1st Coaching, we believe in the power of personalised coaching to transform your triathlon performance. We also understand that 1:1 coaching is not for everyone. But forget one-size-fits-all generic training plans. They overlook your current fitness levels, life circumstances, and any injuries or niggles you may be dealing with. More often than not they lead to injury rather than success.

 Instead, embrace all the benefits of a structured training plan, but one that’s tailored to you. 

What's included

From sprint triathlons to Ironman distance, X Terra, duathlons, beginner to advanced, masters (40+) specific, off season and more. Pick your key race or fitness goal and choose the length of time (12 – 20 weeks) you want to have a structured plan for, we’ll do the rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the minimal fitness requirements to start a plan?

We create training plans for beginners, intermediate and advanced athletes. so there are no minimal requirements. However, to get most out of a structured training plan, we recommend that you can

  • Swim 400 metres
  • Cycle for 30 minutes
  • Run or run/walk for 30 minutes

If you are not quite there yet, we would advise that you slowly increase your general fitness to the above levels first.

Depending on your experience and fitness levels we will start off with an initial testing week to assess your fitness, set your heart rate and training zones. Please note, the testing week is not a prerequisite.

Regardless of your levels of fitness, we strongly recommend that you consult with your physician prior to starting any training plan.  You should be in good physical condition to commence training.
