New for 2022, Due to popular request - we will be more focused on time in the water, to help you improve your swimming, as well as the usual bike and run.

This class is limited to 30 participants.

Join us over the summer for this 8 session triathlon class led by two certified triathlon coaches and open water swim coaches!

Two levels will be offered!

  • Level 1 is for beginners looking to participate in their first triathlon or improve their skills and familiarize participants with the T-Rex Tri course.
  • Level 2 is for participants who are comfortable in all three disciplines and looking to improve their performance. Swim workouts will include pacing and speed. Get ready for more challenging bike workouts, including bike pacing and cadence work.

This 8-session program includes workouts and educational clinics on swim, bike, run and transitions. The classes will be set up where you can choose between Level 1 and Level 2 training for each discipline (swim, bike, run). Make it YOUR workout!

Our coaching staff will help you prepare for your first tri or improve on past performances. This class will have a special focus for preparing athletes for the T-Rex Triathlon on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, but you can also join us if training for another race!
