In his new book, Fast-Track Triathlete, Dixon offers his plan of attack for high performance in long-course triathlon—without sacrificing work or life. Developed for busy professionals with demanding schedules, Dixon’s program makes your PR possible in Ironman, Ironman 70.3, Rev3, and Challenge triathlons in just 7-10 hours a week. Fast-Track Triathlete: Balancing a Big Life with Big Performance in Long-Course Triathlon releases this fall in bookstores, tri shops, and online. See previews at purplepatchfitness.com and velopress.com/getontrack.
Training for long-course triathlons once demanded 15-20 hours each week—on top of work, family, travel and other time commitments. For many, preparing for long-course triathlon is more challenging than the race itself. Now Fast-Track Triathlete opens the door to your best performance in full- and half-distance triathlons in half the traditional training time. Dixon’s laser-focused, effective approach to workouts, recovery, strength and mobility, and nutrition means you can prepare for triathlon’s greatest challenges in just 7-10 hours per week for half-distance and 10-12 hours per week for full-distance.
“We have designed a way to help time-starved athletes integrate sports into their very busy lives,” says Dixon. “Athletes using our fast-track program achieve their sports goals and tell us they have more energy, better health, and improved performance at work.” Dixon’s new approach refutes the accepted dogma of endurance training with more pragmatic solutions. “If the Fast-Track Triathlete program works for some of the most in-demand CEOs in the world, I believe it can work for all goal-driven, busy athletes.”
Fast-Track Triathlete includes:
- Dixon’s complete guide to creating a successful sport and life performance recipe
- How to plan out your triathlon training
- Scaling workouts for time and fatigue
- Training and racing during travel
- Executing your swim-bike-run and transitions plan on race day
- 10-week off-season training program with key workouts
- 14-week pre-season training program with key workouts
- 14-week comprehensive race-prep full and half training plans with fully integrated strength and conditioning
Dixon’s first book, The Well-Built Triathlete, revealed his four-tiered approach to success in all triathlon race distances. Fast-Track Triathlete turbocharges Dixon’s well-built program so even the busiest athletes can achieve their long-distance triathlon dreams without sacrificing so much to achieve them.
