Traditional preparation for Ironman® and Ironman 70.3® triathlons has demanded 15-20 hours of training each week. On top of grueling workweeks and global travel, that level of commitment has proved to be an insurmountable barrier to entry for many busy executives. Yet completing the incredible challenge of Ironman triathlon earns high prestige in the sports community—as well as bragging rights.

Sami Inkinen, CEO and founder of Virta Health and cofounder of Trulia, decided he wanted to test his mettle at the Ironman triathlon distance, so he approached world-renowned triathlon coach Matt Dixon to design a fast-track training program that wouldn’t compromise on performance. Dixon developed his Fast-Track Triathlete method, which requires a manageable 10-12 hours a week for the full 140.6-mile Ironman and just 7-10 hours a week for the shorter Ironman 70.3® distance. With Dixon’s help, Inkinen won the world championship title in his Ironman age group.

For the first time, Ironman triathletes can have it all—work, life, family, friends, and triathlon. “We have designed a way to help time-starved professionals integrate sports into their very busy lives,” says Dixon. “The career-minded executives 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.
