Lisbeth Kristensen Coaching


I’ve been involved in triathlon for almost 2 decades and as a former elite athlete, I’ve been a World Champion, a two-time European Champion and have won several Ironman and Ironman distance races. I trained under legendary triathlon coach Brett Sutton and with his squad of elite athletes for more than 10 years. So I know what it takes to perform at your best. I have been coaching since I was 14 and have a degree in sport’s science. I’m proud to be part of the coaching team and I hope you can benefit from my training and race experiences. Now I’d like to share my experience and knowledge with you:

  • Danish National Team member from 1995 to 2010
  • World’s fastest Ironman distance debut  in (2000)
  • World Champion ITU Long Distance (2001)
  • Two time European Champion long distance (2004, 2006)
  • Brett Sutton trained athlete for more than 10 years
  • Trained side-by-side with Triathlon legends such as: Nicola Spirig, Emma Snowsill, Loretta Harrop, Caroline Steffen and many more
  • 2 year degree in sports science from  University of Copenhagen
  • Mother of Astrid and Jakob, so I know what it’s like to have a busy schedule!
  • TeamTBB online coach between 2012-2013
I am really enjoying being coached by Lisbeth. Every session is different and training never gets boring. I have seen a steady improvement in my performance since I started working with Lisbeth and look forward to seeing how much better I can be while following her plans. It’s great to have someone with years of experience as a professional advising you on your training and racing. She has a really positive outlook which is infectious and understands the pressures an Age Grouper has balancing training with working and will tailor your plan to suit your schedule without you having to stress out about it, which is really important.  Kitty Perle

Following my dreams and goals with passion is essential to me. I don’t take for granted having a coach sharing that same passion with me and understanding that every athlete is different! I get into training every day, motivated, having fun and convinced that what’s on the program is right for me! Thank you, Lisbeth, for getting me back on track and helping me in achieving my goals, I’m sure it’ll pay off!

Strength training - low cadence, big gear hill reps for Trisutto camp athletes in Cyprus. Even after all these years, and all the results I'm still asked by athletes about bike cadence. How come I'm such a proponent for 'non-biker' trained athletes to use low cadence?...
