Editorial Reviews

Review

“While I am a professional triathlete, I also juggle the enjoyable yet challenging commitments of family and being CEO of Picky Bars. If I simply chased a traditional program, without consideration of my life stressors, I would be sure to find myself on a journey to failure. The dynamic mindset has helped me navigate continued evolution at the world-class level, while also growing Picky Bars and being an active participant in my family.” ― Jesse Thomas, professional triathlete and CEO, Picky Bars

“When, Matt Dixon of Purplepatch Fitness, a coach to athletic immortals, pens a book germane to everyday people trying to keep fit, it pays to listen since improved athletic performance has such a profound effect on one's work, sense of well-being and attitude to all aspects of life. The world's best coach of professional and amateur triathletes has distilled decades of experience in his new book Fast-Track Triathlete. It’s an intelligent explanation of how fitness can transform life and work for everyone.” ― Michael Moritz, Partner, Sequoia Capital

“Each time I have tried endurance sports I have found myself quickly succumbing to a cycle of injury, while it also being a drag on my ability to fit it all in with all my other business and life commitments. The Purple Patch approach has been refreshing, and not only has allowed me to thrive in sport, but also helped my energy and mindset for life’s activities.” ― Mark Pincus, Founder and Executive Chairman, Zynga

“I started the multipart journey with some goals, but also questioning how I could fit it into my busy life. Fast forward, my lens has shifted to realize that integrated the sport and positive habits is an asset to my performance in work and life, hence has become a non-negotiable tool in helping my global performance.” ― Carmel Galvin, Chief Human Resources Officer, Glassdoor

“Most training philosophies simply take what the best of the best do and water it down for each level. Matt's book flips the script and looks at how to get the best performance, while not sacrificing work and life. Matt does a great job of whittling down the fat and looking at what matters the most, where do we get the most bang for our buck.” ― Peak Performance

“One of the things that has struck me most about Matt Dixon and his coaching philosophy is his emphasis on quality over quantity. Many coaches load on volume and training hours, whereas Matt is able to create superior performances from his athletes on few hours of training. This translates into better overall quality of sessions, more time to recover, and more time for healthier life balance. His philosophy is one that I admire greatly.”―Sarah Piampiano, professional triathlete

“Matt Dixon taught me to not view my training in isolation but rather implement a holistic focus where my program was planned in the context of maintaining a healthy body, happy family, and fulfilling life. Not only have my performances drastically improved, but also my entire triathlon experience has become far more enjoyable.”―Tim Reed, professional triathlete

From the Back Cover

You can have it all . . . and triathlon, too.

It is hard to win at life when you are training for long-course triathlon. That’s because training for an Ironman® race is like a part-time job. Too many athletes make big sacrifices only to burn out or underperform.

Coach Matt Dixon opens the door to long-course racing for every athlete who has never had the time to take on a challenge this big. If you have 10 hours a week to train, you can do an Ironman. In as few as 7 hours a week, you can do an Ironman 70.3®. It may come as a surprise, but more is not better if it comes at the expense of the rest of life.

Fast-Track Triathlete offers you a custom training program and everything you need to know to make important decisions on volume and intensity on a weekly and daily basis. Dixon opens up his vault of workouts, sharing key sessions for both postseason and preseason training, and reveals a complete training plan for the 14 weeks leading up to your goal race. You get unprecedented access to the winning method of a world-class triathlon coach, including:

• 14-week comprehensive training plans for the buildup to Ironman and Ironman 70.3 races

• 10 weeks of key workouts for the postseason

• 14 weeks of key workouts for the preseason

• Instruction on scaling workouts for time and fatigue

• Travel protocols for training and racing

• A sport-specific strength and conditioning program

Dixon’s program will bring your triathlon goals within reach and develop you as an athlete season after season. The Fast-Track approach to triathlon will help you achieve fulfillment and success in sport and in life.

Matt Dixon is a world-class triathlon coach, former professional triathlete and elite swimmer, and an exercise physiologist. His Purple Patch coaching community is based in San Francisco, but his athletes span the globe. Matt is the author of The Well-Built Triathlete, a regular contributor to sports magazines and publications, an Ironman U® master coach, and a corporate speaker.
