The Academy places a big emphases on the psychological aspects of the sport – why? You may ask.  Any sport has fantastic benefits that sports in general can give you, none so much as triathlon as the time investment is generally greater as we train for the different aspects of the Swim | Bike | Run, but with such big highs there can be some real lows, that you need to be aware of that may not be covered off by your coach.
