Top Triathlon podcast

One of the best sources to get information and tips for Triathlon. Mikael covers all the topics you can face when practicing endurance sports.
I definitely use the information I learn in this podcast in my preparation.

Like all science still trying to push boarders

Very informative; as long time listener you see topics return but every time with newer insights and views. Inspiring!

So many gems for the taking

Nico (Netherlands)
This podcast has so many good pointers on triathlon and endurance sports in general. Give it a go. You won’t regret it. If you search for improvement, this is the way to gather the knowledge and insights to make that next step! For both agegrouper and pro’s. Besides a great podcast Mikael offers great trainingplans and is a kind person, who has never lost patience in collecting and analysing inscyd data and explaining the results even in the case that he has to manually fix the data that i broke while storing it after my test. Keep up the good work Mikael and keep bringing in the gems in the podcast!!!

Value every week

As a long time listener stil every week waiting for and happy with the new episode. Interesting for all levels off athletes and coaches!

The most complete tri training resource

Lots of good triathlon podcasts out there but most focus on interviews with pros or generalities around training. I really appreciate the detail that TTS goes into - asks the questions that I want to ask experts myself.


I listen to all your shows. Not finished yet. A lot of new insights. Or gold nuggets as you would say. Thnx.

By far, the best Triathlon and endurance sports podcast!

This podcast is by far the best resource out there for Triathlon and endurance sports training knowledge. Mikael is extremely knowledgeable, but still humble enough to understand that there’s always more to learn and other people to learn from. He routinely gets the best guests out there, and is able to cover every endurance-related topic in a very structured and efficient way. There’s no ego-trip talk about his own achievements like in other podcasts where the host is an athlete. And the focus on coaches as guests rather than athletes, makes this podcast’s content perfectly suited for self-coached athletes wanting to improve their training. Thanks for the great content Mikael!

Very helpful

Triathlon Jörg
Since I recoverd the podcast from Mikael my way of training and my understanding of the effect of traning of metabolism enz. has changed very much. Every podcast is very helpful for me and I take the information of Mikael very serious. Keep on going with the good work and thanks a lot for your work!!

Definite 10 on the RPE (Rate of Perceived Expertness) scale

Jurrit (Amsterdam)
Every week I listen to Mikael’s no-nonsense podcasts. I haven’t missed a single episode since I found out about the podcast a year ago. Mikael time in time surprises me with interesting topics and guests and elaborate, well explained answers to the Q&A questions. Next to the podcasts, I’m a big fan of the Scientific Triahtlon training plans, which I use myself in order to reach my personal race goals. Conclusion: a must listen-to podcast that I would recommend to everybody that’s interested in triathlon and endurance sports.

Simply a must listen podcast for serious triathletes

NRC e-lezer
Without any doubt one of the most informative triathlon podcasts covering a very wide spectrum of specifically training and performance related high quality information. In addition also very practically bridging theory, science and real life application. Mind that various training theories and beliefs are being discussed and reviewed, well grounded but obviously leaves room for debate and personal opinion. Always looking out for a new episode, hope this podcast is here for good. Keep on providing this high quality content that is very easy to access!

Ontzettend informatief!

Als je je wilt verbeteren is dit ‘a must’ om naar te luisteren voor elke triatleet. 👍

Enthusiastic and very diverse knowledge show

Sync not
Mikael is a very enthusiastic host who loves his sport. Every time interesting topics with lots of great guests in his show.

Amazing work

Thanks for all the work you have put in Mikael! This podcast holds ton of great advice

Interesting and educational podcast

Really like this podcast as it explains many different elements of triathlon - from beginner to expert. As a beginner myself I cherry pick the podcasts that suit me best and they are all wonderfull.
