Turning Potential into Performance


In The Well-Built Triathlete, elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon reveals the approach he has used to turn age-group triathletes into elite professionals.

Instead of focusing narrowly on training and workouts, Dixon reveals a more comprehensive approach that considers the whole athlete. Dixon details the four pillars of performance that form the foundation of his highly successful purplepatch fitness program, showing triathletes of all abilities how they can become well-built triathletes and perform better year after year. The Well-Built Triathlete gives equal weight to training and workouts, recovery and rest, daily nutrition, and functional strength. Dixon considers the demands of career and family and the ways different personality types prefer to approach training.

The Well-Built Triathlete helps triathletes apply Dixon's approach to their season and training plan. Chapters on swimming, cycling, and running explain the most effective ways to train for each. A purplepatch section shows how triathletes can peak their fitness for long streaks of high performance.

Dixon's holistic, whole-body approach to triathlon will help triathletes become greater than the sum of their workouts. By becoming better all-around athletes, well-built triathletes will train and race faster than ever.

Matt Dixon, MSc, is an exercise physiologist and an elite triathlon coach. He is founder and president of purplepatch fitness, a fitness and coaching company that caters to triathletes and endurance enthusiasts of all levels, from world champions to beginners. In recent years, Dixon has become one of the sport's most visible and successful coaches. Top professional triathletes like Meredith Kessler, Chris Lieto, Linsey Corbin, Jesse Thomas, Luke Bell, and Rachel Joyce have found tremendous success using his training method. Dixon is a former professional triathlete and elite level swimmer. He was an Olympic-level swimmer for Great Britain before he became a tri coach in the U.S. He has a master's degree in clinical and exercise physiology.
