About Peter Leo

The future is bright

Peter Leo profile

Peter Leo is my assistant coach and a very quick triathlete himself, mainly competing in Sprint and Olympic distance races at the elite level. He has been involved in endurance sports all his life and his immediate goal is to combine both the practical and theoretical aspects of the athlete-coach relationship.

Peter and I met at a training camp in the Austrian Alps in 2011 when he was already a really good U23 triathlete. Over the summer months in 2014 and 2015 he did an internship with me at my base in Annecy, with focus on high performance coaching and performance analysis of endurance athletes. Since then we have worked together as coaches both remotely and together on numerous training camps for both elite and amateur athletes.

Peter Leo the triathlon coach

Peter holds both a BSc and an MSc in Sports and Exercise Sciences, and he is currently doing a PhD at the University of Innsbruck, Austria working with U23 professional road cyclists.

In academic collaborations with me, Peter has researched a number of specific areas of applied physiology related to endurance performance:

1. 'The Anthropomorphic and Physiological Profiling of Highly Trained Triathletes'.
2. 'A Contemporary Analysis of Training Load Quantification in Endurance Athletes'.
3. 'Muscle Deoxygenation Kinetics in flat and uphill cycling time trials'.

Peter Leo and Garth

Peter is now Head of Performance for Cycling Team Tirol (UCI Continental Team) as well as a fully certified Triathlon Coach.

  • When I met Garth in 2013, in my late 40s, I was already in reasonable shape. Or so I thought! The programmes Garth has set for me have coaxed me along to a much higher fitness level.

  • Hi Garth
    Many thanks for a truly memorable weekend. The training, teaching and experience was fantastic: I was still reliving some of those climbs on the plane home! It was also great to meet your lovely family.
    Thank you again and I can’t wait to get back down for another weekend of precision training.

  • I was fairly new to cycling. I loved it, but felt like I had reached a plateau - I was suffering from frequent illness and injury, I didn't see much reward out for the extra effort in, and consequently my motivation was starting to falter. By good fortune, the gurus at Cyclefit recommended Garth Fox - and I haven't looked back since.

  • {Garth is} a man of integrity, who seems to be driven by nothing more than a desire to help others to achieve their dreams - be these to finish a sprint triathlon, or to qualify for Kona - Garth will be at your side (sometimes literally!) every step of your journey. You're in safe hands.

  • My goal after having two children was to get back to at least the level of 10k running performance I was at before having children, which was 50 mins. Under Garth's highly professional guidance I recently managed a time of 45 mins and came 6th in my age group! I am ecstatic and have already set my sights on a triathlon next year. As Garth always tells me, the limits are only where you set them. Thankyou!

  • Garth's enthusiasm for endurance sports physiology seemingly knows no bounds. He has a great understanding of the human body and how it responds to rest and training. He's also one of those rare people who have both communication and analytical skills, when most people only have one or the other.

    Phil Mosley - Elite Triathlete & Coaching Editor of Triathlon Plus magazine

  • Garth really knows how to connect the dots between training and performance. His enormous expertise in physiology and sports science makes his training interventions very perceptive and his ability to tease out the precise adaptations required for the desired improvement in performance with different training stimuli is uncanny.
