Long Distance Triathlon Package

The Human Performance Unit is offering 2 ‘Long Distance Triathlon’ (LDT) packages to ensure you achieve your race goal.

Take advantage of a support package unrivalled in the expertise, experience, equipment and detail in which you are provided with. A fully comprehensive package that delivers on a multitude of fronts well-beyond that available elsewhere. Benefit from world class support to guarantee you get across the finish line.

We leave no stone unturned in preparing you for your event, optimizing everything from your training, diet, race day nutrition, bike fit, weight management and laboratory testing with state of the art equipment.


Our LDT package includes the following;


1 x Long Distance Triathlon Training Plan
• Receive a fully periodised 9 month training plan to guide you up to race day based upon your current ability and target time.

2 x incremental bike and run tests (VO2max and Blood Lactate):
• Results dictate training intensities, physiological strengths and weaknesses and provide guidance on individualised training plans.
• Results include VO2max, cycling efficiency, running economy, threshold data and training zones based upon HR, power and running velocity.

1 x Sport nutrition consultation:
• Consultations based towards optimising recovery and maintaining training load, race day strategies and weight management.
• Each athlete is provided with individualised food plans and meal examples.

2 x Body composition assessments:
• Ensure you begin the race with an optimal physique. Improve your efficiency by ensuring you are not carrying excess weight that increases your energy demand.

1 x Retul bike fit:
• Dynamic 3D bike fit to improve performance and comfort – ensure you are setup for an triathlon event.


Also Included:

Access to additional material including audio presentations and useful guides into areas such as the psychological demands of IM, pacing strategies, dietary considerations for going long, effective use of equipment and transitions, functional strength training exercises, run drills and swim technique.

Feedback from athletes who participated in previous ‘Long Distance Triathlon’ with us:


‘The nutrition advice you gave me worked a treat, no dehydration, no cramp, energy levels were good, I felt that I could have gone faster but was concerned about the heat and kept a close eye on my heart rate monitor and tailored my effort accordingly. Thank you for your advice during my training and I am sure if I had not taken part in the HPU ironman package the event would have been a lot more painful and less enjoyable.'

‘I am very chuffed and now have a target for my next one. Hopefully a respectable start for someone only training for 6 months for a triathlon. Thank you to you both and Kelly for your guidance and support. I don't think I would have managed to do it in that time without you.'

‘A huge thank you to you both - I really put my trust in your programme and followed it religiously - all of the training plans (including the core work !!), the race nutrition strategy as well as the nutrition / weight loss plan.
Really pleased to have achieved a sub 4 hour Marathon - and really testament to your training and weight loss plan. Especially as I now feel OK and am able to walk comfortably for the rest of my holiday here in Sweden.
So all in all, I can't speak highly enough about the 'Silver' package, including all of the plans and tips - I couldn't and wouldn't have done anything differently. '
