Episode 1 – ‘Achieving consistency’

The endurance athlete’s never ending challenge, to achieve greater consistency.  In this seminar we seek to provide you with a few tools and some advice on common hurdles athletes often face in achieving greater consistency.

Episode 5 – ‘Defining ‘perfect’ – Understanding the ideal swim stroke’

Swimming is all about rhythm and efficiency. But how can you achieve that if you don’t know what you’re aiming for when it comes to improving your swim stroke.  In this seminar, coach Matt seeks to broaden your understanding of the swim stroke and what the ideal stroke looks like.

Episode 6- ‘Bike workshop’ with professional mechanic, Mark Akers

Chaotic, entertaining but incredibly helpful! That’s how this seminar was described immediately afterwards by some of the attendees.  Mark is a former mechanic for track world record breakers, Team Huub-Wattbike and in this session he provides a whole host of bike maintenance tips starting with the most basic stuff and building on that to tell you the tricks pro mechanics use to make even the simplest jobs like changing an inner tube that bit more simple.  There really is something for everyone in this seminar.

Episode 7 – ‘Optimising training around the menstrual cycle’

Episode 9 – ‘Running mechanics’ with the London Running Physio

Running is the most high risk of the triathlon disciplines and requires the most discipline in terms of training approach and recovery.  Scott from the London Running Physio lends us his expertise in how to manage things to mitigate the inherent risks of structured run training.

Episode 10 – ‘How do I know when I’m recovered?’

A question that seems like it should be obvious but can in reality, be a complex balance between logic and ego.  In this session we demonstrate some tools and provide advice you can use to bring a smidge more objectivity to decided whether you’re ready to go again.
