If your training is going to make you suffer, you may as well do it in a beautiful place. That's why Braden Currie loves Wanaka, in his home country of New Zealand.

From open water for swimming to open roads for biking, it's a big world, and it gives him room to do big things – all in preparation for the upcoming Red Bull Defiance. Check out the video below and learn more about Braden's training philosophy while soaking up the stunning views of the South Island.

This is why Wanaka is an amazing place to train

The video gives a unique insight into Currie's new training philosophy, which is a little bit of 'less is more' – putting together training and recovery blocks to optimise his body for performance when it's needed most. 

Hopefully, all this training will pay off when he and Team NZ Adventure take to the adventure race course at Red Bull Defiance in late January, where he and other athletes will takes bikes, boats and of course, their feet over 60km in three days, finishing in Lake Wanaka.
