Group sessions are focused on improving the skills and techniques of our sport. The group workouts are defined and scheduled by the Coach at times that seem to best suit the group.- the Coach is in attendance for at up to 1 hour. There will be multiple sessions throughout the month to choose from. There will be strength, swimming, running, transition and cycling group workouts. The type of workouts offered will be affected by the weather and the season. The goal is to offer early morning times and evening and weekend times to accommodate the most possible schedules.

An individual session with the coach is defined as a swim, bike, run, strength, transition or other workout lasting up to an hour, as determined to be appropriate for the individual by the coach. The individual and the coach will work together to schedule these workouts. These workouts are typically focused on improving the skills and techniques of our sport.

Additional services available

  • Getting Started Quickly is a 2 hour individual session with the coach when you first get started. During this session we will review your swimming (video analysis), cycling (on a trainer) and running (video analysis) technique. This is a great opportunity for the athlete to get some pointers right away and the coach can more appropriately focus the training from the start.
  • One-on-one Swimming, Cycling, and Running instruction or other sessions as defined (transitions, strength, etc.). These sessions include video analysis. Performance Testing
  • Performance Testing Please see details on performance testing page
