The PowerUp Tri Podcast will be hosted by former pro triathletes Matt Lieto and Jordan Rapp, lending their in-depth knowledge of the multisport to the Zwift Tri audience. Matt and Jordan will be joined by a guest host on each episode lending their knowledge of the triathlon world and providing a contrasting opinion/personality to the podcast. The podcast will focus on several key segments focusing on training, current events, and technology, without the premise of coaching listeners to a better result. Different from other podcasts, the unique background of our hosts and the guest hosts will provide a rare look inside the pro ranks of the triathlon world to entertain, inform, and maybe even raise a few eyebrows. Also different from other podcasts, this is not a coaching podcast aimed at making you a faster triathlete. It will however give you tips and insights to make you a more informed, well-rounded triathlete.

Frodo’s Legacy episode
I am a fan of the podcast and have been hoping for this episode for a long time. I’m so glad you got him on and he did not disappoint. Some great nuggets of inspiration and information.
Sadly, unsubscribing after seeing the latest episode. The conflict of interests in selecting one of Lieto’s clients for the Zwift Academy team, him gushing about an adjunct professor teaching online “working full time” and then giving her a platform on this pod is just too thirsty. Fare thee well. RIP Jordan Rapp.
Love love love this podcast!
This is a great podcast for triathletes that zwift. The hosts are very funny and I love the guests that they have on. The show is broken up into segments that keeps the podcast moving at a good pace: tech corner, main topic, questions and power up. It’s also nice to get small tidbits on the workings at Zwift. Overall, great pod!
