The 24:7 Triathlete – philosophy

A typical front of pack amateur triathlete will train the swim, bike & run for 10-20 hours per week.  At The 24:7 Triathlete, we believe that what you do in the remaining 148-158 hours will dictate how successful you are.  Nutrition, sleep, strength & conditioning and a myriad of other factors will dictate whether you can achieve your triathlon goals and fulfill your athletic potential, but are an area that often gets over-looked.
