Matt Dixon brings a unique blend of professional coaching experience, elite athletics and education to lead the purplepatch team. His Master’s degree in clinical and exercise physiology combined with his experience as an elite swimmer and professional triathlete form the backbone of his coaching philosophy, the purplepatch pillars of performance, a much broader and adaptive view of the path to peak performance than conventional endurance sports coaching.
He is a highly sought after resource in the fitness and endurance community, writing and contributing to multiple publications and organizations such as Triathlete Magazine, USA Triathlon, Outside Magazine and Powertap. He has also been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Men’s Journal, Outside, Men’s Fitness, and Men’s Health.
Matt is the author of ‘The Well Built Triathlete’, IRONMAN U Master Coach, lead hydration advisor for Camelbak, and sits on the advisory board for LUMO Technologies.
With Matt Dixon’s purplepatch pillars of performance athletes of varying goals and capacities, are able to train throughout the week using the same purplepatch philosophy and methodology. The purplepatch mission is to create an effective program for all to follow, without forcing athletes into a standardized program that simply doesn’t fit into their life.
