Featured Team D3 Athlete

Coached by Simon Butterworth, USA Triathlon Certified Coach

Motivation to take up the sport of triathlon and stick with it, is, let’s face it, challenging. Three sports, four counting the important strength training, a job, a family, friends, and a few other things are hard to work into a typical workday. You can’t slack off during the week and try to cram on the weekends (it does not work well with the sport or a family).

Athletes who are coached 1-to-1, follow a Custom Training Plan, or use one of our Pre-Built Training Plans are considered members of Team D3.  Athletes can become part of the Team at any time through our coaching services.  These athletes experience the double power of coaching and camaraderie.  Once a year, in the fall, we publicly invite athletes who are not currently coached through D3 to join Team D3 with the understanding that they will support the Team the following year. 

Team D3 athletes embrace our coaching principles of Desire, Determination and Discipline and are great ambassadors of triathlon.  They also share in the camaraderie and benefits of a diverse, passionate group of athletes. Team D3 athletes range in ability from beginner to elite, and they train in home towns that span between Boulder – New York City – San Diego – Costa Rica – Dubai – and so many places in between!  With an incredible 19 years of triathlon coaching and team management expertise, we use a mix of technology, social media, events, partners and of course, racing to bring athletes together – no matter where they live. 

Take a peak at our Team!

Virtual Fun

Stephen S. + 10 other D3ers finished up the Ironman. 7-Day Kona VR Challenge. Some did it one day, some did it in the allotted 7. Any way you look at it, this quote sums it best: “I finished this motha!!! Kudos to those that start and finish on the same day. Ironman is no joke!”
