From fueling breakfasts to filling lunch ideas we have you covered this spring

Since the dawn of time, we’ve been told about the importance of diet and nutrition and it’s never been easier to create healthy appetizing food no matter what time of the day. We have worked closely with Whole Earth and OTE Sports to provide a range of healthy, fueling meal ideas and recipes to help you through spring.

Getting your head around sports nutrition

Sports nutrition can be quite complex and for anybody new to the world of endurance sport, getting your diet and nutrition right can enhance not only your exercise experience but also your general wellbeing. Here’s a couple of common questions:

When do you eat?
How much do you eat?
Why should you eat?

OTE Sports have helpfully supplied us with lots of interesting information, articles, recipes to help you along your way.

Check out all the useful articles and information both Whole Earth and OTE Sports have put together for our winter training guide.

DIGITAL PARTNERS TO SUPPORT YOUR TRAINING

Digital has crept into every element of our lives and the triathlon world is no different. We have partnered with four companies who are leading the way with forward-thinking digital training.
 

From performance to indulgence, British triathlon has you covered.

When you become a British Triathlon member, you get access to group workouts, e-races and in-game unlocks like the British Triathlon jersey for your avatar. Our partnership with Zwift has established an official place for members to train, race and interact with other members.

Training Peaks provides access to athletes and coaches on the British Triathlon World Class Programme and support team, allowing them to log workouts, plan their season, analyse their heart rate, pace and other data. After each workout, Training Peaks breaks down the complex data to deliver valuable feedback so you can see exactly where your fitness is improving.
 
In order to get set up at home and ready to train through the winter, you need some updated gear. A turbo is an essential piece of any home set-up and our partner, Wahoo has all the products that fit and work seamlessly with Zwift.
 
A recent addition to our line-up, 4iiii has now been announced as the Official Power Meter Supplier for British Triathlon. As a member you receive an exclusive discount on the 4iiii product family which includes power meters and heart rate monitors.
Understanding your performance is paramount when looking to find the marginal gains in each activity.
 

HOW THEY ALL FIT TOGETHER

Cycling is all about understanding power and output, if you can understand where your energy is being used, you can start to manage this in an intelligent way to get the most out of each ride or run. 4iiii’s power meter allows you to accurately manage your power output so you can stay in control.
 
You can use Training Peaks as your daily or weekly calendar of activity. In the calendar you can schedule all your training sessions and even set the intensity. Once complete, you’re then able to upload this information into Zwift so you can race and take part in rides which fit in with your training plan. 
 
Wahoo is one of the leading suppliers of turbos on the market. Their turbos allow you to turn your road bike into a indoor trainer. There’s a type of turbo to fit every standard and budget.

Safety

SAFETY IS ALWAYS PARAMOUNT

We have lots of partners that help support you on your triathlon journey and now that the nights are getting lighter and the mercury is rising we can start confidently venturing outdoors again. We work with Yellow Jersey who provide exclusive partner discounts to help insure your kit should anything happen, supported by our leading public liability insurance available with British Triathlon membership.

A FOCUS ON INNOVATION AND ADVENTURE

When British Triathlon were on the hunt for an Official Vehicle Partner, cyclist and pedestrian safety needed to align with this decision.
 
Volvo invest a huge amount of time, money and energy into safety innovation. Routinely voted as the safest car on the road, Volvo cars have a range of technology included on the vehicle that aim to provide a safer environment and less accidents on the road. When this is partnered with their continued effort and drive regarding environmental and social issues – Volvo as a brand aligns perfectly to British Triathlon.
You wouldn’t get into your car without insurance so it’s always seemed strange that so many people ride their bikes without it. You could be left in a pickle if you get into an accident whilst on the road. Our membership package provides gold standard public liability insurance and when partnered Yellow Jersey’s insurance options you’ll have everything covered moving forward. Yellow Jersey provide competitive and stringent cyclist insurance to support you if the worst should happen when you’re out and about.
 
Yellow Jersey have a range of different insurance options suited to every triathletes’ level and with the competitive rates assigned to British Triathlon members it’s a no brainer.

INTRODUCING THE VOLVO AFFINITY SCHEME
