thetrilife training plans

The coaches of thetrilife.com have developed a range of training plans to help you through your triathlon career, from our First Sprint Triathlon Plan to our Intermediate Standard Triathlon Plan.

When you buy a training program from thetrilife.com you will get as much coach support as you need from the experienced coaches at thetrilife.com via email.

You can choose to have your training plan sent as a "paper copy" which will be emailed to you, in order for you to print it off at home.

Alternatively, you can have your program delivered via the internet so is accessible wherever you are AND your sessions are emailed to you – so no scraps of paper to carry around! Plus you will have access to an online training diary so that you can track and analyse your training and monitor your progress.
