Acerca de


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.

From the Back Cover:

"Matt Dixon remains at the forefront of the sport, a beacon to the rapidly expanding triathlon world." - Meredith Kessler, pro triathlete & Ironman champion

Training - Recovery - Nutrition - Strength

Coach Matt Dixon is in the business of developing world champion triathletes. With 150 championships and podium finishes in Ironman ® and Ironman 70.3 ® events over the past five years, purplepatch fitness pros are proving over and over again that he knows how to draw out performance. But Dixon will be the first to tell you that his pros don't train according to the conventional methods.

In The Well-Built Triathlete, Dixon upends the myths with which triathletes have been indoctrinated and spells out a better way to train for swim-bike-run. His progressive training program is grounded in the belief that performance is supported by four equally crucial pillars -- training, recovery, nutrition, and strength -- that must all be developed together. When any one of these pillars is underdeveloped, athletes fall short of their potential.

The Well-Built Triathlete begins with a thorough self-assessment that will identify imbalances that threaten performance. Then Dixon's groundbreaking book on triathlon training supplies the tools you need to tap your full potential:

  • Guidelines and protocols to improve training consistency and recovery
  • No-nonsense advice on triathlon nutrition, fueling, and hydration
  • Functional strength tests and exercises to launch a strength training program that builds resiliency
  • Sample training blocks for every phase of training as well as Olympic-, half-Ironman-, and Ironman-distance race prep
  • Workout sessions to evolve swimming, cycling, and running fitness over multiple seasons

The Well-Built Triathlete is your guide to implementing Matt Dixon's winning purplepatch fitness program and uncovering superior performance year after year.

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.
