On Tuesday 15 May, British Triathlon welcomed nine members to the Loughborough Performance Centre for a behind-the-scenes experience of the life of an elite triathlete
On the day, the British Triathlon Members were invited to enjoy a coaching session from some of the sport’s top coaches and get an idea of how to effectively fuel your training from some of our top nutritionists. They were also given the opportunity to take part in an exclusive Q&A with Great Britain triathlete Ben Dijkstra and paratriathlete George Peasgood.
Throughout the eight-hour long session, the participants did everything from learning how to fine-tune their swim technique, to creating protein balls and fruit smoothies, learning how to be best prepared throughout training and come race day.
Gaby Hay, British Triathlon Membership Manager, said: “It was great to welcome a selection of our members to our High-Performance Experience Day to get involved in a wide range of activities and workshops; learning from some of our top coaches and athletes. As part of our British Triathlon membership, we offer members exclusive discounts and money-can’t-buy offers, which will hopefully help them on their triathlon journey and help retain them within this fantastic sport.”
Katie Nimmo, a participant on the day said: “It’s been fantastic, having the opportunity to spend time on some of the different disciplines and looking from a more holistic point of view at the nutritional, psychological and physiological aspects of the sport. It’s been a wonderful experience.”
