Tyler Tafelsky is the creator and lead editor of Better Triathlete.

What started as a simple triathlon blog back in 2014 has since evolved into a growing community of triathlon coaches and athletes alike.

Initially, Tyler used the blog to share short posts of his favorite triathlon podcasts, YouTube videos, triathlon bikes, and other interesting pieces that he stumbled upon.

Later on, Better Triathlete shifted focus to feature in-depth content related to triathlon training, coaching, recovery, and injury prevention.

While Better Triathlete retains its integrity as a triathlon blog, it has grown to become a frequently visited triathlon resource for many intents and purposes.

From helping connect athletes with coaches to providing tri-specific strength and recovery guides, the site is now a trusted triathlon platform for a range of individuals interested in triathlon.
