The series developed by Virgin Active, Asics, Gatorade, Maxifuel , Speedo and Timex and draws on the considerable knowledge of Virgin Active experts, Olympian Marc Jenkins, coach to World Champion triathlete Helen Jenkins, the members of Team Challenger World (www.facebook.com/teamcwuk) and Team Freespeed (www.freespeed.co.uk) and experts from the individual sponsors

The Virgin Active London Triathlon (VALT) (www.thelondontriathlon.co.uk) and its principle partners have launched a 13 part Triathlon Training Series designed to help athletes prepare for the London Triathlon or any other event this summer. The videos are designed to help both first time and experienced competitors. The videos are led by Virgin Active experts, Olympian Marc Jenkins, coach to World Champion triathlete Helen Jenkins, the members of Team Challenger World (www.facebook.com/teamcwuk) and Team Freespeed (www.freespeed.co.uk) and experts from the individual sponsors.

For the beginner the videos provide a comprehensive guide to help get the most out of their triathlon experience whilst for the experienced triathlete, individual videos will help them make targeted improvements in their performance.

The videos were filmed at Virgin Active West London and Marc Jenkins home in South Wales. They cover pre-race planning and preparation, equipment for triathlon, its selection and use, general race day tips, open water swimming tips, transitions, ensuring your bike is race ready, how to change a flat tyre, run tip and hydration and nutrition strategies (a detailed breakdown is provided HERE)

On the videos Olympian Marc Jenkins of the Challenger World Triathlon team comments; "This is phenomenally comprehensive series of videos that provides the breadth of information a beginner needs to enjoy their day, whilst some individual videos such as Gatorade's Hydration strategy and planning or Maxifuel's nutrition video's will provide veteran triathletes with information that will help them refine their race strategies to make those little gains that make such a difference."
