What do you look for in a training program or group? What qualities will amplify your performance?

Of course, you want a smart and progressive training plan throughout the season, but at Purple Patch, we believe there is so much more than just a "beef stew" of workouts.

Matt and the team at Purple Patch want you to thrive in sport and life, develop great supporting habits around your training, and build a platform of accountability, feedback, and community.

So, what is Purple Patch doing to deliver on this mission? How are we planning to evolve? And, most importantly, how will you benefit from these additions?

Matt reveals what Purple Patch Fitness has planned over the coming year - how we're going to build on the massive success of 2021 and help athletes and fitness enthusiasts thrive, shine, and find great performance in sport and life.

We are evolving in three main areas:

  • Help more people through Bike and Run Squad programming

  • Better Measure Progress and Gains through Habit Creation with Inside Tracker

  • Improve Coach and Community Connectivity via live coached workouts, athlete watch-parties, improved education tracks, swim analysis, and more.

Yes, it's a peek behind the curtain, but also a description of programming, tools, and inspiration to help you chart your own progress through the coming season.

As always, if you'd like to learn more or have a conversation about our community, reach out at [email protected].

    190 Nutrition Case Study: Fueling For the Elite Amateur Athlete

    48:24

    In Part 3 of the Purple Patch series on performance nutrition, Matt Dixon, along with leading performance nutritionist, Scott Tindal, lift the veil on nutrition and fueling with nutrition case studies around real-life Purple Patch athletes. The goal for all? To frame a smarter common-sense approach to nutrition and fueling in order to build a long-term platform of health and resilience. This final case study is centered around the elite amateur triathlete, Andy Williams. Like many triathletes, Andy is seeking top-level performance in all areas of his life, with his primary goal being an IRONMAN World Championship qualification. His first few attempts had been disastrous, but all-too-common for many multisport athletes. He's gone from GI distress from overconsumption to bonking because of underconsumption. Like many, prior to working with Purple Patch and FuelIn, Andy didn't have a grasp on his eating and fueling habits. He didn't know his sweat rate, body composition, amount of fuel he should be taking in, and what types of food he should prioritize around training and racing. This led to confusion and paralysis, dangerous experimentation, frustration, and poor results relative to training potential. With the guidance of Scott and Matt, Andy developed strategies around: His Baseline numbers - knowing exactly where he was starting from and where he needed to be Repeated testing and nutrition practice in stressful training situations to mimic hard race conditions Hot Water Immersion and/or Sauna protocols for heat acclimation Better organization and specificity around his eating and nutrient timing for energy management, hunger control, and body composition. In this discovery process, Andy upskilled his knowledge, felt empowered and confident during races, and achieved his goal of qualifying for both the 70.3 and IRONMAN World Championships. This work included no voodoo science, no magic elixirs, and no secrets. As you'll hear, the only requirements were a massive desire to learn, organization around habits, and repetitively applying that knowledge. 0:00-04:05 Welcome and Episode Introduction 04:06-07:40 Squaddie Update - Upcoming Events include a Discussion with Inside Tracker, a Live IRONMAN Florida Course Overview, and a public webinar on the topic, "So You Want to Do Your First IRONMAN."
