We are also co-hosting the Triathlon Festival (    This is an amazing opportunity to meet the CE Team, have a bike fit, swimtest (yes swim) a new wetsuit and listen to some amazing speakers that we have lined up for you.

There are still places available online  for £8 (just a few so get in quick before the price goes up).  If you miss out on the cheaper prices, turn up on Saturday with a copy of your SFFT confirmation and get you (and everyone in your party) get in for £10.

There’s a secret not everyone wants you to know about.

Training doesn’t actually make you fitter or stronger…

The cat is well and truly out of the bag, but before you rip up your training plan and throw your trainers in the bin, hang fire and let me explain.

That swim, bike ride or run is just the stimulus. You complete the session, feel great at having ticked it off but are clearly a bit fatigued as a result.

The instant result is:
Training = Fatigue.

The more you train, the more fatigue you are going to build up, making you more and more tired.

Proof then, that training isn’t what makes you fitter.

How then, do you weird the results from your hard efforts.

This is where rest and recovery come in.

As part of Mission Fast Twitch, we will be utilising recovery as one of our prime markers for every participant to ensure that they are training like Goldilock’s favourite porridge.

“Just right”.

We can all train more, and many of us think we NEED to train more, when in fact, all we really need to do is focus more on recovery strategies.

Train hard, recover smart and you’ll see great results.

Combine recovery with our training plans, strength and conditioning sessions, the triathlon nutrition blueprint, weekly advice, coach contact and accountability from our private Facebook Group to keep you motivated…

And you’ve got a powerful ally.

Just 10 places available so we can ensure everyone gets the close attention they need.

Ideal for you guys who have entered!?
