Most of your coaching and training is done by women, for women, with women, with an emphasis on safety, fun, and learning how to train. There is no other program that follows the three "F's" in training like we do: fun, fitness, and friends. Most training programs focus on your "performance" measuring how fast you can race and getting you on the winner's podium. We have programs that do that, as well as programs that get you to the starting line knowing everything you need to know prior to doing your event!
Below, we have cover some frequently asked questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us or call at 877-283-1575.
Cut-off Dates: Each program and team has a different cut-off date. Please see the description of each individual training program to find out that date. You can also contact us directly by email and we'll put you into contact with your coach.
Missing workouts: We all have busy lives and we know that happens. We encourage you to make as many workouts as possible as to keep motivated on on track. If you do miss a workout, you can contact your coach ahead of time or follow the workout schedule online so you don't miss a beat!. If scheduling is difficult for you, you might consider One-on-One Coaching.
Haven't trained much: No problem! Even if you are new to fitness or haven't been active in some time, we can help you get there. All programs start with a base building and endurance phase and use heart rate training and zones to help you get going in the right way! That doesn't mean we won't challenge you though! :)
Checking out the team first: We understand this can be intimidating. For most of our programs, we have kickoff or "Meet the Coach" evenings for you to check out the program before fully committing and meet other women in the same situation as you. We encourage see when these are in your area after you find a program (putting in your zip code) and then by clicking on the more details section once you find one near you.
Swimming: Our programs are not a substitute for swim lessons, but we will do our best to assist you an provide you direction so that you can complete this section of the triathlon. We would recommend you enhance your program with our skills clinics or even one-on-one sessions with your coach. Swim clinics are only 2-3 hours so we can't "teach" you to swim in that brief time, but we can give you direction on swim programs and swim coaches who can help you. However, we urge you to start now and take swim lessons at your club or community fitness centers. The more swimming experience you get the earlier the better you perform
