About Our Club

Based around the Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire borders we are one of the East Midlands leading triathlon clubs, dedicated to supporting our members to achieve their performance goals, whilst having a lot of fun in the process!

Triathlon is a fantastic activity for people of any age. Whether you’re new to triathlon, want to improve your fitness or even dream of representing GB in your age group; our supportive and friendly club is the place for you to achieve your goals.

Whatever your reason for joining, here at 4Life you’ll find like-minded people to train with trained and supportive British Triathlon and England Athletics approved coaches who are dedicated to helping you perform at your best.

The club itself was formed by Dean Hughes way back in the year 2000. Dean  delivered sessions for Junior athletes between 8-16yrs at David Lloyd Leisure Aspley Lane.
Facilities were very sparse in those days but Dean used his connections with DLL to help reduce the costs and battled with members for swimming pool lane space!

Richard Moyle soon joined Dean to help grow the club and the club quickly gained an excellent reputation and was established as the Junior Triathlon Club to go to.
The club was one of 2 clubs (TFN was the other) in the region offering sessions for groups of kids and competed very well in the East Midlands Junior series events.
An Academy was soon developed with the club for the most talented Juniors and many went on to represent the region at the inter regional champs and were selected to join the East Midlands Triathlon Academy.

Sessions moved on to Keyworth Leisure Centre, where Dean & Richard organised Holiday Triathlon Training Camps and children’s multi sport events for young people of all ages and abilities.

Who remembers the Keyworth Junior Triathlon and how many athletes raced this event to go onto represent GBR?

More sessions were needed for the growing number of junior members so Dean jumped on the opportunity to start sessions at the NEW East Leake Leisure – (thanks to Chris Sanderson and the staff).

This is where the very small adult section started to grow and grow and members went on to compete in regional and international events including Ironman…

The club is very proud of providing opportunities for many coaches to start their coaching journey, develop their skills & experience and many athletes, young & old of all abilities over the years have enhanced their lives through this fantastic multi sport.
