His goals: put his mind and body through hell, defy the odds, and become a hybrid athlete.

Weekly Videos

Week One

Week 1: Pedal to the Pavement

Kris' first week of training involves numerous gut-checks. Biking and running after a hard leg workout is only for the brave, but Kris is ready for the pain.

Week Two

Week 2: Swimming Upstream

Kris Gethin, running down a trail in the middle of a rainstorm? Yup. Welcome to a new world of fitness in this week's episode of Man of Iron.

Week Three

Week 3: Intense Extremes

In Kris' most intense week yet, he swings back and forth between inspiration and frustration. Does he let either extreme cause him to waver from the path? Not a chance.

Week Four

Week 4: Time to Chill

Whether at home or on the road, Kris goes to whatever lengths necessary to crush his nutrition, training, and recovery. Ice bath from a hotel ice machine, anyone? Jump in!

Week Five

Week 5: Beat-Up & Bruised

The first four weeks of Man of Iron have left Kris battered and broken. This week, he gets a well-earned dip in intensity. But, can he actually allow himself to hold back?

Week Six

Week 6: One Leg At A Time

After last week's deload, the volume and intensity in Kris' training go back up. Not coincidentally, both muscle soreness and his old injuries rear their ugly heads.

Week Seven

Week 7: Staying Afloat

After six weeks of practicing every swimming drill in the book, Kris and Sunshine enter an open water swim competition for the first time. Will they power to the beach or struggle to keep their heads above water?

Week Eight

Week 8: Going by Instinct

Think your hectic schedule doesn't allow for quality training? Kris Gethin politely disagrees. During a week packed with work and international jet-setting, he still finds time for both the weights and lung-melting endurance work.

Week Nine

Week 9: Climbing Higher

While in Europe, Kris ventures out of the gym for a high-altitude adventure, then ventures into the hotel gym for minimalist workouts. This is how hybrid athletes make the most of every day!

Week Ten

Week 10: Taking a Lap

Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor a very long plane ride can keep Kris from completing his daily workout.

Week Eleven

Week 11: Ups And Downs

Sometimes the sheer training workload is even hard for Kris Gethin, the master of high-volume training, to wrap his brain around.

Week Twelve

Week 12: Back To The Grind

Their spontaneous half-marathon completed, Kris Gethin and Sunshine head back to the gym and to a local pond to continue adding muscle, burning fat, and mastering the complexities of open-water swimming.

Week Thirteen

Week 13: Hitting His Stride

A baker's dozen worth of weeks into this project, and Kris is hitting his stride. His workouts are as intense and punishing as ever, he's more confident in open water than ever before, and even his "bad days" biking or running are productive.

Week Fourteen

Week 14: Half Over The Horizon

The countdown to the half Ironman begins in earnest this week, as Kris deloads in the gym and focuses on form and race-specific skills outside of it. This is getting real.

Week Fifteen

Week 15: The Half is Here!

Is Kris Gethin's training setting him up to conquer a half-Ironman, or is he in for the battle of his life? This week, he'll find out.
