The sport of triathlon is a challenging and intense sport that requires a lot of dedication and discipline to stay in top shape. It takes a lot of time and perseverance to train and continue to grow as an athlete. Therefore, it can sometimes be lonely and discouraging to train on your own, especially when you feel like you're not making progress or you're losing motivation.

Fortunately, there is a solution to overcome these challenges: training with other triathletes.

Training with others can be a great incentive to stay motivated, improve your performance and challenge yourself. In this blog, we list some of the benefits of training with other triathletes and tips for getting the most out of these workouts!


When training with other triathletes, it is important to set clear goals for your workouts. Deciding together what you want to accomplish as a team can be a huge motivating factor to get the most out of your workouts.

This can range from improving swimming technique to reducing bike time to completing a certain running distance. By setting shared goals, you can motivate each other and hold each other accountable for your progress.


Use enough variety in your workouts so that everyone's strengths and weaknesses are addressed. Each triathlete has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, and by varying your workouts, you can work as a team to improve all aspects of triathlon.

A good way to add variety to the workouts is by alternating them in intensity and duration. For example, you can do this by occasionally scheduling interval workouts or doing a gentle recovery workout after a hard workout.

It is important to keep communicating with the other triathletes about your workouts and see where individual needs lie. Aligning these with the rest of the team can help develop individual strengths and weaknesses together.

For example, a weak swimmer may focus more on swimming technique while a stronger cyclist focuses on improving climbing skills.


Using technology can play a big role in training with other triathletes. By using fitness apps such as Strava or Garmin Connect, you can track progression as a team and share workouts with each other.

Strava is a popular app among athletes where you can track your activities, plan workouts and discover routes, among other things. By creating a Strava group as a team, you can see each other's activities and motivate each other through kudos and comments. This can create healthy competition within the team, for example, which in turn provides additional motivation to perform better.

So join the ASW Strava club!

Using technology can also help better tailor the training plan to individual needs and track progression. For example, by following a training program provided through an app, it is possible to train together and track progression.


As a triathlete, it is important to always be mindful of safety, both for yourself and others. This also applies when training with other triathletes. Therefore, it is very important to keep a close eye on each other and be alert to your surroundings.

An important aspect of safety is following traffic rules when you train outdoors. Make sure you are aware of the traffic rules in the area where you are training and always follow them. When cycling outside, always wear a helmet and make sure you are visible to other road users.

Finally, it is important to always wear the proper safety measures such as wearing a helmet, wearing reflective clothing and using lighting when necessary. By paying close attention to each other as a team and helping to remind each other of important safety precautions, you will ensure that workouts are not only effective, but also remain safe and fun.
