Balancing a Big Life with Big Performance in Long-Course Triathlon
★★★★★ Lays out all the elements needed to succeed and excel at triathlon without compromising the other important things in your life like family, friends and sleep.
In Fast-Track Triathlete, elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon offers his plan of attack for high performance in long-course triathlon--without sacrificing work or life.
Developed for busy professionals with demanding schedules, the Fast-Track Triathlete program makes your PR possible in Ironman(R), Ironman 70.3(R), Rev3, and Challenge triathlon in about 10 hours a week.
Training for long-course triathlons once demanded 15-20 hours each week--on top of work, family, travel and other time commitments. For many, preparing for long-distance triathlon is more challenging than the race itself.
Fast-Track Triathlete opens the door to your best performance in full- and half-distance triathlons in half the traditional training time. Dixon's laser-focused, effective approach to workouts, recovery, strength and mobility, and nutrition means you can prepare for triathlon's greatest challenges in just 7-10 hours per week for half-distance and 10-12 hours per week for full-distance.
Fast-Track Triathlete includes:
- Dixon's complete guide to creating a successful sport and life performance recipe
- How to plan out your triathlon training
- Scaling workouts for time and fatigue
- Training and racing during travel
- Executing your swim-bike-run and transitions plan on race day
- 10-week off-season training program with key workouts
- 14-week pre-season training program with key workouts
- 14-week comprehensive race-prep full and half training plans with fully integrated strength and conditioning
Dixon's first book, The Well-Built Triathlete, revealed his four-tiered approach to success in all triathlon race distances. Fast-Track Triathlete turbocharges Dixon's well-built program so even the busiest athletes can achieve their long-distance triathlon dreams without sacrificing so much to achieve them.

★★★★★ The importance of sleep/rest, quality vs. quantity, endurance AND strength, nutrition, etc. -- this book shares such a realistic and balanced approach to training and helped me train for and complete my first Ironman (140.6) race as a working mother of 3 small children and a 13:32 finish time.
