Training For A Triathlon

training for a triathlon

Training for a triathlon is physically demanding and getting your training right is key to success.

Loughborough University’s Sports Science Service can help you optimise your training and triathlon performance.

We offer a range of services specifically for triathletes to help improve their training and competition performance.

Whether you have just started training for a triathlon or have been training for years, we can help you to get the most out of it.

All our services are tailored to be specific to your needs as a triathlete.

We have worked with triathletes of all ages and abilities, and with people training for sprint through to ironman distances.

We always ensure that our advice takes into account your training background, what you are wanting to achieve and the time you have available to train.

Services We Offer:

Physiology Testing

A physiology test assesses your fitness, and can be done both running and cycling. You receive feedback about your strengths and area for you to work on. Finding out what might be limiting your progress means you can then tailor your training for a triathlon to ensure you achieve your goals.


We offer diet analysis and consultations. Nutrition plays a key role in any event lasting longer than 1 – 1.5 hours. If you are training for an Ironman event then the significance of getting your nutrition and hydration strategies right is even higher. Good nutrition allows you to get the most out of each training session, both during the session itself and your recovery.

Find out about the nutrition services available for triathletes as well as lots of useful information to help you get your nutrition and hydration right.

Triathlon Training Articles

We have spent many years studying sports science and we are constantly keeping up to date with the latest research to ensure that the services we provide to athletes are the best they can be. We are very experienced at translating the science into useful information for athletes, in a way that even the least scientific person can understand.

Here we will have some articles about different aspects of triathlon physiology, triathlon training and sports science. We will be adding to these on a regular basis as new research comes out. We hope you will find these interesting and helpful for your triathlon training.
