Description

Are you thinking about getting into triathlon or doing your first race? Have you finished a couple of races and are keen to improve your performance?

Triathlon training and racing can be daunting and confusing. Many beginners are a little intimidated by everybody else who looks like they know what they are doing and have all the gear.

Triathlon for Beginners is an easy-to-understand and insightful book packed with practical training tips and strategies, nutrition advice, how to develop mental toughness, and advice on triathlon gear you need. It will help you:

  • Understand the sport of triathlon and how it works
  • Develop a training plan that simplifies your season
  • Train effectively, so you minimize the risk of getting injured
  • Avoid making mistakes that cost a lot of time and money
  • Help you feel confident when you are on the start line
  • Decide what race length is best for you, from sprint to Ironman
  • Buy the right triathlon kit to suit your ability and your aspirations

A personal note from the author: This book is gathered from years of training and racing, not only from my triathlon experience but from the experiences of champions. I have trained with and raced with elite athletes and winners from all over the world, but I also started out not knowing what I was doing and was scared to death when I did my first race.

I wish I had this book when I started out. I would have saved myself a lot of heartache and stress! I wrote this to help all triathlon rookies get over their nerves and enjoy this fantastic sport.

Triathlon for Beginners is a complete start-to-finish guide that covers all areas of training and racing, including what you need to know and how to begin; how to understand the jargon of the sport; training rules and techniques; swimming, cycling, and running techniques; race etiquette; and how to get faster and better performances.

Great first book

This is a great first book. If you already do triathlons you will struggle wanting to get through the first few chapters. Although basic in general, he does a good job with the book and worth listening to on a long bike ride

The best triathlon guidance for beginners, hands-down!

I wish I would’ve come across this book earlier. In preparation for my first triathlon I’ve read over 12 books and manuals including “the bible”, this is by far the best. Simple yet technical enough, well written (and read). Fun to follow along and a nice sprinkle of motivation and mindful reminders of the non-physical parts of fitness training. This book would help you become a triathlete in the best possible way. My coach loved it too.

First Timer All Around!

This is the first audible book I have listened to from start to finish. I enjoyed it and it had such useful information. Looking forward to my first triathlon in August 2019! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I highly recommend this book if you plan on doing a triathlon and don’t know where to start!

Great beginners book

I have 2 sprint triathlons behind me, and my next goal is running an Olympic distance. Because if that reason I got this book ( audiobook + kindle). This book has addressed all of my open questions like how do I get faster ? Do I need strength training or only 3 sports are good enough for training ? An example and more important the logic of a training program and some other questions. After reading this book, I feel more confident about preparing for my next goal. For sure this is not the only reference for me, however it has been the starting point towards a huge goal. Definitely recommended to you, if you are in similar situation like I am now.
