    I quickly gained confidence and raced my first sprint triathlon. I had such a fantastic first race, and my competitive spirit came through so I came back the following year and won!

    When I started training with Nico I could not swim a single length of the pool but now I can complete the whole swim easily!

My Values And why This Is Important To Me

Nico Valla Sprint Triathlon Training PlanFor me it’s important to promote health and fitness for triathlon.

While often people can get fit, unfortunately this can be at the detriment to health, and while they may be linked, health and fitness are different.

Taking a holistic approach to fitness, and embracing effective training methods, specifically in the two elements of training and nutrition.

My unique velocity over volume method saves you time, and is more effectively for you, the real-world triathlete.

You gain better triathlon fitness quicker, with less risk of injury and burnout, plus you get to keep your job, social life and spouse with a more manageable workload.

A Little Bit About Me

That's me, Nico Valla racing in the European champs.

I get a real buzz from helping you achieve in triathlon.

I love knowing I’ve helped you achieve your goal and I LOVE to see your amazement when you achieve your goal on such a low training volume!

I’m a triathlete, fitness writer and creator of the Project Tri online triathlon training plans and  coaching team.

I have written many articles in different publications and I’ve helped many many ‘real-world’ triathletes reach the finish line fresh!

I got hooked on triathlon from a background in cycling time trials and mountain bike racing and I’ve been racing triathlons since 1999.

Since then I have competed on all levels and at all distances from sprint to Ironman triathlon, local, national and European and World triathlon and duathlon champs.

I have also managed to span the results board from DNF to winning, and I’ve shown that being second to last out of the swim can in fact result in a podium finish!

Helping triathletes like you who have little time and big goals, I focus on getting the most out of each training minute so you get much fitter in less time. Don’t be mistaken though – if a session is short that does not mean it will be easy. You’ll just do more work in that time!

I am 100% committed to helping you achieve your triathlon and surpass your expectations. My methods do go against the grain of tradition in pursuit of more effective triathlon training uniquely designed for you, the real-world triathlete who wants zero guesswork and a plan that works with life.

If you'd like to be a part of this, take the first step and get in touch.

Happy training, Nico Valla.
