Stop making this mistake

As triathletes, we want to be light and lean.Whatever way you slice it, carrying too much excess weight isn’t going to help your performance. 

And in order to stay in race condition, we need to watch our diets. 

Trouble is, something we see a lot here at Brownlee Fitness when athletes come to us, is that they’re not eating nearly enough.

They’ve convinced themselves that to stay at a good weight, they need to really cut down on the calories. 

Or they restrict themselves to small portions, and only eat carbs around training.

And while that might help keep your weight down, it also poses 2 problems:

1. You’re very likely under-fuelling.

Training nutrition isn’t just about what you eat during a session.

Your overall nutrition plays a huge role in how much effort and intensity you can put in when you’re training.

So if you’re not eating enough on rest days or light days, you’re going to suffer badly when it comes to your tougher training days.

2. You’re also under-recovering.

Us triathletes love to get really into the weeds with recovery methods like foam rolling, ice baths, and sports massage.

But very few put enough focus on what REALLY drives recovery - nutrition.

Getting the balance between eating enough to train and recover optimally, while not stacking on the extra kilos is hard.

But if you’re struggling, we can help with that.

Our bespoke nutrition coaching is designed to fuel your performance and boost your endurance, while ensuring you stay in the condition you’re happy with.

Some of our nutrition clients want to shave a little weight in preparation for their next race, but find they bonk whenever they try to “diet” on their own.

Others know they need to add a little muscle, but aren’t sure how to do this in a healthy way.

And some just appreciate a helping hand when it comes to planning the ideal nutrition strategy for them, so they feel GREAT in training sessions, and turn up on race day in peak condition.
