The Purple Patch Squad is a triathlon training and education program designed specifically for time-starved athletes looking to perform in any distance of triathlon racing but also thrive in life. From the top of the podium to athletes aspiring to simply improve, this program will work for you.
To optimize your Squad membership, you will need to be disciplined and aim to become empowered to apply the lessons of self-management and decision making, and have a desire to improve. As with all Purple Patch Fitness programs, we cater to time-starved athletes who want to train smarter and improve their performance in the most efficient way possible.
The Purple Patch Squad provides day-to-day structured workouts written by Matt Dixon, each with in-depth video tutorials, ongoing global education around all aspects of performance, a great in-person and online community, as well as opportunities to connect live with our coaches via twice-weekly video Office Hours, and in-depth education via Meetings with Matt.
You can join the Squad at any time, in any phase of your training, and all phases include:
Daily Training (Link up with the SF Squad): Your baseline training program will align with the key sessions of the San Francisco-based Purple Patch Fitness training squad led by Matt Dixon. No matter where you are based, you can share the suffering and joy of being a part of the Squad. The workouts include a training platform utilized by our professional and individually coached athletes, video tutorials from Matt Dixon, bike and run workouts embedded with coaching cues that will link to your Garmin, Zwift, Wahoo and many other apps.
Unlimited Race Build Plans (Race Preparation): While following along with the SF Squad creates camaraderie, accountability, and learning; we also appreciate that you must prepare specifically for your key events and races. The Squad program includes unlimited Race Build plans that guide you day-by-day into your key races. You will be offered guidance and advice on how to manage your racing schedule and apply the perfect race build to your training (with 4, 7, or 10-week options available). These plans are easily applied in your training calendar and include the same tutorials, education, and structure as the regular squad sessions you will follow for the rest of the season.
Tracking and Individual Feedback: Our training software allows you to track and analyze every workout, as well as long term trends in performance. You are able to record subjective training logs, subjective metrics (mood, performance, fatigue, etc.), as well as objective data (power, pace, sleep, weight, etc.). These trends are easily tracked and able to be monitored over time. If you ever need more individual guidance or customization of your programming via your Purple Patch Fitness coaching team, you can simply purchase an a la carte coaching consultation, and we will help out. Athletes often utilize these sessions for specific race planning, season review, customization for travel, or a training camp, as well as many other options.
Education: Performance does not just arrive from a training plan. Athlete empowerment and education is a critical piece of the puzzle, hence our ongoing commitment to great education and guidance in all aspects of performance. Your Squad membership includes access to our Education Hub to help with training management and educational resources. You also have the opportunity to gain real-time guidance and feedback with our Meetings with Matt live video sessions (only available to Purple Patch Fitness athletes), twice-weekly Office Hours with our coaches and teammates, and integrated education within your daily training program.
Community: Sharing the journey with teammates and peers not only makes the experience more fun, but it also provides a wonderful source of accountability and learning. Whether you are looking to secure the best hotel at a race you have never been to, asking advice on equipment, or navigating a rough patch in training, your Purple Patch Fitness community is an eclectic and supportive group of like-minded enthusiasts. You might even end up getting advice from some of our pro squad! In the Purple Patch Squad this means a private Purple Patch only discussion board, a private Facebook group, community forums around racing and training progression, and race social events and meet-ups at select races.
