Donald Brooks - A very busy Triathlete

Meet Donald. A husband, dad to two energetic boys, and is a very busy Triathlete.

He was bitten by the triathlon bug in 2014. Nine years later Donald holds 8 Age-Group World Championship titles, eight European Championship titles and 10 British titles. He has podiumed at all distances from Sprint to Ironman.

And in one 4-week period in 2023 he won 4 world titles in his Age Group in four weeks - over the Ironman distance, 70.3, Standard and Sprint.

As you might imagine, Don prioritises recovery. Riixo are proud to have supported these phenomenal achievements and to have worked with Don on his recovery protocols.

Donald’s approach to recovery is as diligent as his training. He gradually improved his score from 57% to 79% during the course of the 2023 season.

Donald is proactive with his diet, he stretches meticulously (especially after run sessions) and invests in regular sports massage treatments. The area he finds hardest is getting enough sleep – perhaps this isn’t surprising with an active family, a busy job and a high training load.


Donald found his personalised recovery report (from our Score Your Recovery tool) incredibly helpful and the one-on-one support from our Recovery Team helped him build his recovery protocols driving performance and training consistency.


Donald found our Recovery Cuffs at the Leeds 2022 WTCS event hosted by British Triathlon and they are fully embedded in his daily routines.

Don't ever stop.

I really like these cuffs. I’ve used ice and compression separately for years but using them together is a game changer – it’s more convenient and feels more beneficial.


I suffer with the occasional niggle and have picked up more than a few injuries in my lower legs over the years.


These recovery sleeves have become a go to product. I’ve worn them to work, under my suit, after a morning ride. At the weekend I’ll wear them after my longer more intense sessions as I am spending time with the family and catching up with jobs around the house. They’ve definitely helped my recovery and they fit nicely into my life.
