ellie salthouse on squeeze the juice podcast

A full time job for Salthouse

Ellie Salthouse is a professional Triathlete here in Australian and is one of the best  in the entire world. We are beyond stoked to have had the opportunity to chat with her on the show and to get an insight into what it takes to be a full time triathlete.

She has been in the sport since the young age of 11  where she got picked up by a coach who saw her potential early on. Ellie turned pro in 2010 when she was just 17 years old.


What's in this episode?

In this episode we dive deep into what it takes to be a professional triathlete, the training involved, the importance rest plays, mental discipline and what she loads up on prior to racing (shout out to pizza and Nutella on toast!)

We dive into the battles Ellie's faced during her career, including taking a break from the sport to get on top of an eating disorder and to work out whether or not being a pro triathlete was what she wanted to do.

She shares the advice she would give to her younger self which we're sure many of you can relate to.
