The Genetics of Athletics: Reach Your Potential

Have you ever heard someone say – “That athlete’s a natural! It must be in his/her DNA.” – meaning that the athlete’s impressive ability is a result of their genetics. And while “natural talent” still requires dedicated training and skill development, there is a world of genetic information contained within an athlete’s DNA that predisposes them to respond to different types of training in predictable ways. Therefore, it begs the question, if the genetic information is known, how can it be used to alter triathlon training for optimal performance for any athlete at any performance level?   That’s exactly what the TriDot team has been pursuing, and now we’re excited to launch our industry-disrupting genetics module, PhysiogenomiX (genetically optimized triathlon…

TriDot Preseason Project 2013 Results

Preseason Project 2013 was a huge success…thanks to the 837 athletes who participated! How would you like a 35-minute improvement on your half distance or 1 hour and 5 minutes on your full distance triathlon?  Read on. TriDot's Preseason Project 2013 Results Highlights (9:34)   The Preseason Project was designed to test and improve the effectiveness and proven science of TriDot preseason (and inseason) training.  We leveraged data from participating athletes to provide a precise and accurate comparison of triathlon race ability improvement between those who trained with the TriDot system and those who trained without it. Among the large population for this project, athletes fell into four unique groups.  Preseason-Only, Inseason-Only, Full-Season, and Control Groups. Preseason-Only comprised athletes who…

Episode 101: Data-Driven Triathlon Training

In this episode, we examine the very foundation of your triathlon training.  What is your training based on?  What are you trusting in for results?   We explore data-driven training and how you can have complete confidence that you’re getting the most possible out of your training.    Data-driven triathlon training uses predictive analytics and other big-data technologies to design and optimize an athlete's training. To be defined as "data-driven", BOTH an athlete's individual data AND training and race data from a large population (big data) of similar athletes are required in the training design process to produce an optimal and individualized outcome for each athlete. In this approach, data is the basis of the training and drives decision-making and…

TriDot’s Bottom Line: Better Results With Less Training

Triathletes are known to be “Type A” personalities. We love taking things to the next level — beyond our expectations and those of others. Bottom line: We’re driven to constantly improve. And that’s exactly what we’re doing at TriDot. THE BIRTH OF TRIDOT Since my first sprint triathlon in 2003, I have been intrigued with not only the sport of triathlon — but also the training science behind it. As I began researching the science, I found training resources to be mostly generic philosophies, unproven theories, vague concepts, one-size-fits-all templates, and personal anecdotes. Many of these conflicted with each other. And any published research I reviewed was too small of a sample size to be conclusive or broadly applied. While I…
