This 12-week sprint triathlon training plan for beginners was created exclusively for Outside by Matt Dixon, a former professional triathlete, coach, and owner of San Francisco-based Purplepatch Fitness.

The workouts are built to be interesting, specific, and progressive. They will prepare you to finish your first sprint triathlon strong.

You should begin this program healthy and injury free, and be patient with the workout progression. We believe in training hard, but balancing that hard work with integrated recovery, proper nutrition and an effective functional strength program. Endurance training, recovery, functional strength, and nutrition make up the pillars of performance.
