If you haven’t heard of Ben Greenfield and Kerry Sullivan yet, you soon will.
These two guys are making waves in the triathlon community with their Rockstar triathlon academy – a closed-door triathlon training and mentoring program set up specifically to help triathletes drop their times in all three legs of their race using a step-by-step formula.
I interviewed Ben and Kerry to try and pry out of them some of their best advice and tips for triathlon training and racing.
How they got started
Kerry was originally a soccer player, but after attempting his first triathlon in college he realised he not only enjoyed the sport but was good at it. Ben picked up triathlon during his Master’s degree in sports science, as he thought it would be a good way to help his research.
Why triathlons are cool
Lots of cool toys to play with (bike, wetsuits, heart rate monitors, etc). The races are great fun, you get to mix it up with the different sports. The people are driven, competitive but also a lot of fun to be around. You can eat “a crap load”!
What it takes to make it
Find good coaches and training partners to work with. That will kick start your racing and get you ‘up to speed’ with everyone else sooner than normal.
How do you get started
Get out there and start training. You can read as many books as you want but that won’t get you closer to kicking butt in a race. Even if you start small, it’s better than nothing. Have a training plan, start following it and find someone to keep you accountable to it.
How to turbo charge your results
Find a good coach who can show you results. Follow their training plan. Be consistent with your training. Have fun in your training and competitions!
