“I have been doing triathlon for the last year or so and I decided to join Hampstead Triathlon club about 5 months ago. In this time they have helped me go from completing my first triathlon to completing my first half ironman!

There are so many great things about this club and they have really helped me to grow as a triathlete. Every session is well structured and there is always something new to learn.

Dan and the other coaches are absolutely fantastic! Their enthusiasm is so infectious and they give you the motivation you need to really push yourself, even on those days you might not feel like training (we all have them :P). My fellow Hampstead triathletes are probably the friendliest bunch of people I have met and coming from a running background, I am amazed by the real sense of community in the triathlon world. I can’t wait to line up some more races and to compete in some of the team events that the club participates in. More than anything it is nice to know that you have such a great bunch of people supporting you and helping you achieve the goals that you set yourself. I can’t recommend enough coming down and giving a few sessions a try! Just be prepared to become obsessed with all things triathlon!”
