The Brownlee Fitness Team

If you are looking for a tried and tested approach to improving your performance as a triathlete it makes sense to look to the methods used by two of the sport’s best athletes: the Brownlee brothers. Learning from their 40 years combined experience in the sport, and the coaching team who support them, is the best investment you’ll ever make in your athletic future.


Alistair Brownlee

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.  


Jonny Brownlee

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.
