Brownlee Fitness is built on 20 years of elite Triathlon and endurance training creating two of the worlds greatest Triathletes - Double Olympic Gold Medallist Alistair Brownlee (OBE / MBE) and Olympic Gold, Silver & Bronze medallist Jonny Brownlee (MBE)
The business is in start-up phase being funded by the founders and about to launch its services to market from www.brownleefitness.com
The companies mission is to help people "Achieve More" whatever their sporting level or goal
The business has been designed to replicate Alistair and Jonny's training methodology and distill it for a global audience of all levels - leveraging and enriching the Training Peaks Platform (which has 500,000 unique Athlete visits per month)
Uniquely, as well as providing training plans the business offers membership to a training squad, events, online store, training platform and physical centre (currently in Beta).
Internal Use Only
Proven, World-Class Training Methodology, Club, Squad and Centre
Designed to help people achieve more
Help people of any sporting level to achieve more
Build a Global Brand that people value and respect
Build a Community
That is vibrant, active, caring, with Olympic level standards at its core
The business is focused around four core pillars and goals.
Delivering the highest quality training plans
Growing our global membership to achieve £500k revenue inside 18 months
Creating a Squad that works together on a week-to-week basis
Attend events where we extend the brand
Goal: 1000 paid training programmes and moving one third of those purchases to Squad membership
Goal: 2000 paying members from around world communicating and collaborating around the training methodology
Goal: 400 people actively training as a Squad and competing as a team.
Goal: Attend 10 strategic events each year where we take the brand to meet and greet Athletes of all levels
We recognise there are challenges to achieving our goals
Reaching the right people i.e. Athletes that have have no structured plan, not apart of a club or dissatisfied with their incumbent training approach.
We will create awareness through digital marketing, leveraging the existing social base of nearly 400k followers, organising virtual and physical events plus strategic partnerships with brands such as BMC, Wahoo, Addidas, Huub, Tri247, Kask, Hyperise, OTE, sportsshoes.com & Training Peaks (others to follow).
The Non Professional, Age Group Triathlon training market can broadly be categorised into online training platforms, device specific platforms, clubs and individual coaches. It's a busy and fragmented market. Through simple, concise communication we will centre on the effectiveness of our methodology, the benefits of being apart of a squad, club and supportive community.
Motivating people to want to invest their time and money in a market where there's an abundance of free, low cost alternatives requires us to price our services to scale whilst representing value to our founders and our community. We will leverage our Athlete communities stories and Alistair and Jonny's progress and success to amplify the difference we make in people's Triathlon journey.

The business has been founded by two of the sport’s most decorated athletes: the Brownlee brothers. The company has been formed based on their 40 years combined experience in the sport, and the coaching team who support them.
The only person to claim ITU World Champion crowns as a Junior, U23, and Elite, and, more significantly, the only one to ever successfully defend Olympic triathlon gold, his arrival on the circuit reshaped the way this sport is raced.
The most decorated Triathlete in Olympic history with three Olympic medals. Olympic silver (2016), bronze (2012) and Gold Relay (2021) Jonny has been one of the most consistent athletes over the last 10 years, notably finishing on the podium in every triathlon from July 2010 to May 2014 – 42 races in a row. A World Champion at Sprint and Olympic distance, Jonny has also won Commonwealth Games medals and been victorious at Super League racing.
