The Endurance Specific Podcast

This week I chat with TS LIFER, and king juggler Tim Corbett.

Tim is happily married 5 time Ironman has 5 kids and juggles family, business, coaching and competing. Right now Tim should be a 6x IMer but his most recent one in stunning Taupo NZ was done in dusted in a sub 10min time (something we discuss in the show).

He has a passion for making Ironman training and competing, family friendly helping ‘normal’ mums and dads become Iron-parents.

With a background in sport science, behaviour change and marketing, he is the Director of Thinking at Deep Limited, a specialist health advertising and marketing agency. Tim looks to mix research with real life experience so doing Ironman not only makes you fitter and faster but a better mum or dad. Your legs will only take you so far, it’s your heart that gets you across the line.

A strong believer in the power of the team, he believes Ironman should not be pursued as an individual sport but as a chance to grow communities.

His wife, Catherine, is a strong believer in the power of the ‘weapon of mass distraction’. Expensive, shiny pieces of jewellery that ‘distract’ from the pain of watching, waiting and dealing with the whining.

Grab yourself a tasty beverage and enjoy.

TS LIFEAs I mentioned I’m turning 40 on Saturday… and I’m going to be bring that big 4-0 in with a 40km trail adventure here. I was excited to see some dirt trails again last week, but alas we are back in snow… So it will just add another element of awesome.

And since it’s supposedly a big mile stone and I’ll only be turning 40 once. I pretty much giving away a year's access to TS LIFE for 40% off. Access to everything TS LIFE has to offer has never been this low. And yes there’s a catch - As soon as I’m done my 40km run, showered, had some nutrient dense food… I’ll be turning off the discount code.

So go to and put in code "happy birthday" and that will take a whopping 40% off your entry to TS LIFE. And everyone that joins will be getting a little extra gift from me.


Hands down the most potent indoor cycling trainer you can invest in. Yes, it’s an investment in yourself but mark my words, the Rev Box will make you a much stronger bike rider and more efficient at the same time.
