Training with TRI247
We improve athletic performance through the holistic development of skills, endurance, strength, speed and mobility.
We embrace traditional ideas, and continue to learn, create and implement new ones. We are experienced, creative, inquisitive and experts in our fields.
We treat every day as if it is game day, because it is the small things you do today that make the difference.
TRI247 isn’t just triathlon training. WE are about guiding you to move better, faster and longer - becoming stronger - becoming better than you where yesterday.
We aren’t just about building muscle. We build character. This is your moment. Your push to do more. To go further. Not just changing your body – but shaping the way you live. Because at the end of the day, nothing helps you see the world differently, more positively, than the lens of confidence.
This is it. Your green light. Your time to prove yourself. To rise above your own expectations. You just have to choose to do it. Commit to it. Milestones will be met. Records will be broken. Doors will open wide.
This is the moment.
Choose, Commit, Change.
TRI24/7 individualised programs are designed and tailored to your individual needs and athletic goals.
Our programs will meet the specific and individual needs of each athlete. Regardless of level our training programs will turn your dreams and goals into reality. Why will the programs work? TRI24/7 individualised training programs are not just generic cookie cutter moulds we take into account your life and needs as an athlete. Balance is the key ingredient – through close monitoring and feedback we are able to fine tune and make adjustments to the program.
Assessment & Skills Development
We believe it is important that athletes are connected with coaches who understand the physiology of the athlete. Whether you are a TRI24/7 athlete, or considering becoming a member of the team, our coaches are able to assess and inform you of exactly what you require to improve.
Please note, all athletes who participate in a cycling session on the road with TRI24/7 will be required to undertake a cycling skills session, to ensure adequate skills and ability to ride safely in a group environment. Skill sessions are available to improve your bike handling abilities, please contact TRI 24/7 to book a skills session or if you have any questions.

With the JETS you will have the opportunity to not only learn new skills, but further develop the ones you already have and achieve fitness and enjoyment in the sport of Triathlon.
Power Duration Curve and Intensity Domain
I love data, I love numbers, I love the development of systems and models, and at the moment I am in my element crunching through ten (10) years of time trial data from the Triathlon Australia Junior program. Now this data set this includes performance records for athletes from short high intensity anaerobic 30 second efforts through longer aerobic efforts, and the element that has piqued my interest is the decay (or fatigue) rate of performance over time is an interest to me both as a measure for performance and an important element for the construction of individual training plans.

Ironman World Championships 2017 Prediction Vs. Actual
The Ironman™ World Championships is over for 2017, and we have seen a changing of the guard in the men’s race, with Patrick Lange, Lionel Sanders and David McNamee taking over the podium positions. Not to forget our own local club member Cameron Wurf and his record breaking bike split of 4:12:54. I thought I would take this opportunity and have a look at the times and modelling from our race prediction article utilising the resources from www.trirating.com and www.bestbikesplit.com, and see how their predictive modelling stacked up. One point of interest, Lionel Sanders mentioned in one of the many […]Read More
Kona 2017 Bike Predictions
Ironman™ World Championships are on this weekend, streamed live via Redbull TV from Kona, so I thought I would have a bit of a look at some the statistics and race predictions that are floating around the old “Interweb”. Thorsten from www.trirating.com has published his Kona report and there have also been some interesting data published by best bike split www.bestbikesplit.com, and I thought it would be worth having a look at the analysis that these sites have undertaken. The team at Best Bike Split, have published a series of data utilising their bike split modelling tool, predicting times for […]Read More
Swim Squad – Find that 1, 2 beat
We often think that our stroke is like a metronome, consistently hitting that 1, 2, 1, 2, left, right, left, right rhythm, however for many swimmers who come to swim squad for the first time as an adult; their stroke timing is anything but. The crux of this problem is that as the swimmer rotates to take a breath, their lead arm will often slip through the water, dropping their elbow and catching no water that means a shortening of their total body length. This slippage makes it difficult to maintain body position especially whilst desperately gasping for that […]Read More
Swim Squad – Develop that Feel
So last week we introduced a number of new drills, including the ballet kick, torpedo push offs, torpedo kick, 616 and 636 drills, if you missed the article you can find it here. Today we are moving on and we are going to introduce some drills to help you develop a feel for the water and develop your catch. The first drill is called long dog, some people also calls this drill doggy paddle, but no matter the terminology it is a great drill as it forces you to develop an early bent elbow catch. Again it is of no […]Read More
Swim Squad – Where do you Start?
Last night I had the opportunity to help out and coach the Triathlon South swim squad, it had been a little while since I had been on pool deck in a hand’s on role, and I had a great time. Working with relatively new swimmers, especially with a new group with whom you need to build connection and a framework for communicating can be a challenge, but I feel we quickly slipped into phrasing we all understood. The session really took me back, it is one thing to design and take a session for experienced swimmers, it is an entirely […]Read More
Philosophy – not just a theoretical concept.
The process of coaching is complex, it is both an individual and social construct (Cushion et al, 2003), with a multifaceted mix of meanings, values and practices. In part, this is because humans are inherently different, they participate in sport for a myriad of reasons, exhibiting behaviours and traits that are driven by their individual complex psyche. This can equally be applied to coaches, why is your coach a “coach”? Do you have an understanding of their motives, philosophy or training principles? Do you care? As a coach I hope you do. Athletes face a challenging pathway in their pursuit […]Read More
What are you thinking?
In this article I want you to start to consider a couple of key matters in regard to training and racing, specifically perceived effort and cognitive strategies for racing and training. Firstly, it is worth understanding that your perceived effort will change, that is how hard you feel you are going. Rajeski (1981) suggested that effort or perceived exertion, as it relates to sports performance, is determined by both psychological (e.g. cognitive strategies, individual differences, motivations) and physiological (e.g. heart rate, lactate, Vo2max) factors, and as such, the way in which individuals perceive effort or intensity of exercise can be […]Read More
Psycho- Physiological / Social Measurement
ABSTRACT Performance is affected by a wide variety of factors; the external environment and psycho- physiological/social stressors within an athlete’s life impact greatly on both training and competitive performance. It has proven challenging for coaches to systematically capture these extrinsic non tangible factors and conditions to ensure we focus on an athlete centric approach to coaching including a mix of wellbeing, capability and performance. This paper proposes a set of variables, condition mapping and practical connections to improving coaching. INTRODUCTION Measuring and managing training methods to track the loading of athletes has been the charge of coaches for eons, be […]Read More
