Unsure how to train for your first Ironman?

Have you been asking yourself the following: 


  • How much training is needed to finish? 
  • When should you be resting? 
  • What to focus on at different times in the plan?
  • How am I going to fit it all in?


We know how it feels!

Having a busy work life, relaxing family time, and a fun social life aren't out of reach when training for an IRONMAN©. Yes, you will spend a considerable amount of time training, but using one of our specifically designed plans will ensure you maximise your training time and minimise the disruptions to the rest of your life. You can have a life balance when training for long-distance events, and we have created our plans with that in mind. Our low volume plans never go above 14 hours a week, even at peak volume, and we always aim to keep weekday sessions under 60 minutes to ensure you are still able to fit all your other commitments in. Coupled with built-in rest and recovery along with key focuses for each week of your plan, you will be able to get to the start line well-trained, ready to race and feeling great!

Why choose one of our training plans?

We focus on three key things.

We don't believe in shortcuts or gimmicks; we build our plans with tried and tested methods to get you to the start line in the best shape possible. Our focus is:

1. Building your endurance

2. Building your skills

3. Maximising your training time


How do we build your endurance?


All of our plans include focused aerobic building sessions that push your fitness up over time to allow your body to adapt at a manageable rate.



Why do we build your skills?


You may have all the endurance in the world, but if you can't swim, bike or run efficiently, you will be wasting all of that hard-earned fitness.



How do we maximise your time?


By building our plans to include focused time-efficient sessions, we can help you gain your fitness in the smallest amount of time possible.


We use Training Peaks to build all of our plans, which allows you to have great flexibility, and the ability to personalise your training zones and get daily reminders. Which is even able to integrate your training into all major training devices (Garmin,  Apple etc.)  and training software such as Zwift, Trainer Road and Rouvy

Our plans are expertly created by our British Triathlon Level 3IRONMAN© + TrainingPeaks Level 2 Certified Coach, Coach Chris, who has 20 years of coaching experience. Using well-established training practices, he ensures you are getting the best type of training for your experience.

What do you get with your plan?

Free TrainingPeaks Account

All plans include a Free Basic TrainingPeaks Account. The ability to access your plan from anywhere through the use of the TrainingPeaks mobile and desktop apps. You can also track your progress and performance with detailed charts. You can also track your weight, sleep, fatigue and stress through the app. Your workouts will auto-sync with all the most popular training apps and devices.

Auto-Syncing Structured Workouts

All plans are built with structured workouts for cycling and running. These workouts will sync with training platforms such as Zwift, TrainerRoad and Rouvy, which will automatically allow you to complete them hassle-free. Along with this, they will also sync to your GPS watch or training device and prompt you all the way through your workout.

Fully Detailed Weekly focusses.

Along with all the workouts, you will get weekly coaches' advice and goals for the week ahead, giving you the advice and guidance to adjust your plan if required and make sure you get the vital workouts for the week completed. Along with this, many of our plans contain nutritional advice and race day planning too. And you also get free email coach support for the length of your plan.

We aim to help you reach your goals by ensuring you are fit, healthy and ready to go come race day. That's why we offer a plan exchange; if you feel that you need to have more or less volume, you can always change to a different plan free of charge
