Being a Better Triathlete is as Easy as Breathing | James Nestor
What if we told you that simply breathing through your nose could lower your heart rate and improve your performance dramatically? That's what author James Nestor discovered as he researched his book, "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art". He explains how the simple act of learning to breath with our mouths shut (especially while training) is a huge game changer.
No Ironman, no problem! Create your own race with Kevin Rodriguez and Lauren Boulay
Kevin Rodriguez and Lauren Boulay are co-workers and training partners.

From Paralyzed To Olympic Hopeful in 18 Months | Leanne Taylor
Two years ago, Leanne Taylor was on an afternoon hilly bike ride with her boyfriend when a simple braking error changed her life -- she went over her handlebars, breaking her spine and paralyzing her from the belly button down. But with an endlessly positive spirit, Leanne turned potential tragedy into a whole new path in life: she's now in the Canadian Paralympic program and poised to potentially compete in the Tokyo 2021 Paralympics.

What Never Missing A Workout Can Get You | Doug Gailey
Doug Gailey has been nicknamed Mr.100 - as in 100% - because he literally never misses a workout on TeamTrainiac.com. Doug is an age-grouper who, only a few years ago, couldn't swim more than just a side-stroke. But a total commitment to his workouts has shown what consistency can do: he's not only a comfortable, capable swimmer, he's put down great 70.3 race times, and looking forward to continued improvements when racing resumes again!
How Much Progress Can An Amateur Triathlete Make Starting From Scratch in Three Years | Robyn Stirling

Customer ReviewsSee All
Great podcast full of entertaining and educational triathlon goodness! Highly recommend to anyone interested in the wonderful world of triathlon especially those just starting out and wondering where on earth to begin...
Good except the host talks about himself too much!
Some good interviews and interesting segments... however it is a drag listening to Taren talk about himself so much. Mate, let your interview subjects tell the stories and keep the spotlight off yourself a bit!
Love your work.
Podcasts, YouTube, email subscription with training drills.
This is really helping with my training and motivation.
Particularly love the inclusion of AC/DC thunderstruck in the workout playlist. Good to see an Aussie band made the cut. Always seems to kick in you need it.
Keep it up.
