About Phil Batterson

Hello, my name is Phil Batterson and I am the Triathlon Tutor. I am here because I am passionate about sharing my knowledge in order to inspire and help first time triathletes overcome their first Ironman Triathlon. I know what it’s like to wake up every day and feel like you aren’t living up to your full mental and physical potential. I know what it’s like to want to test the limits of human endurance by completing an Ironman but being afraid that you will fail. What if I don’t have enough time or money? What if I have never swam more than 1 length of a pool? What if I do all this and don’t finish? That is why I am here, to help you overcome these nagging doubts of failure and push you to realize your full potential by completing a Full Ironman. I am here to show you that you can succeed. It wasn’t long ago that I was searching for something to test my limits. Something that would leave me with a great sense of accomplishment. It wasn’t long ago that I was in my early years of college, my freshman year I was on the rowing team but because of injuries I was unable to compete the following year. I started my sophomore year with a bad case of mono and missed out on joining a lot of clubs or sports teams. I wasn’t feeling fulfilled and I was searching for a group of people I could lean on. Then I discovered a way to challenge myself and accomplish something that others only dream about. I wanted to do an Ironman! It wasn’t an easy road. I ran into many problems along my journey like, not having ever swam more than 50 yards before, never having run a marathon or completing a century ride (heck, when I started I didn’t even have a bike to ride), getting shoulder injuries and nursing a bad back, and to top it all off I had never done a triathlon before. Now after a long journey I am an Ironman, which is something nobody can ever take away from you, I completed the most grueling endurance event ever created. Knowing this, I am able to push myself harder than ever before, whenever I doubt that I can do something I say to myself “this can’t be as hard as an Ironman”. And now I want to help you to get the same results. The first step is simple. Subscribe to the Triathlon Tutor email list and begin your journey to becoming an Ironman.
