There are many cool gifts for women triathletes that can be very useful to them.


When I first became a triathlete back in 1983 there were no books at all on the subject of triathlon. The sport was so new that no books had been written.

I would say that triathlon books that would motivate, inspire, and provided the triathlete in your life with training and racing tips would be a great gift.

Information on training, avoiding injury, diet, equipment are just a few questions that a triathlete needs to find answers to when they are getting started in the sport.

I have written several books on triathlon.

My books are not training books but are books compiled from my experiences over the past 30+ years of endurance events including over 35 marathons and 14 Ironman Triathlons.

A good triathlon coach will get you to the start line and my three triathlon books will get you to the finish line.

You can visit my ironstruck book store and find the perfect book for the new or experienced triathlete doing their very first try a tri triathlon or the Ironman.


Use of book “reader’s” is becoming very popular and all you will also find a link to Kobe on the top right hand side of this page.

Kobo is the online version of Indigo books. All my triathlon books are available in E-pub format at excellent prices.

Why not buy your favorite triathlete a book reader and download my triathlon books onto it for them? That would be a very unique and helpful gift.

If you enjoy using a book “reader” then visit Kobo Books and you will find all my books available at excellent download prices.

Do you know where your triathlete works out? If you do, a fitness club membership would be something she has to buy anyway and would most likely be much appreciated.

It might be one of the more expensive gifts for women triathletes but perhaps you could buy them a one month pass for a gym of a pool perhaps.


A triathlon gear “transition bag” is ideal for use in the transition area when a triathlete is carrying their gear to the start of the race.

A triathlon gear bag is especially handy in a race like an Ironman that involves lots of racing gear. You could even put an assortment of gifts in the transition bag and wrap the bag up with the other gifts in it!


A good triathlon watch is a very necessary piece of equipment and would be a great gift for a triathlete.

Although their are many watches that have the same triathlon-focused functions, there is something special about a “Timex Ironman Triathlon Watch”.

A heart rate monitor is a great piece of technology that enables athletes to train and race within their physical limitations without over-stressing themselves. This makes a heart-monitor an ideal tool for preventing over-use injuries.

If used properly and on a regular basis, a heart-rate monitor can be instrumental in helping the woman triathlete in your life realize her goals.
