Fall 2017 Foundation Program

FALL 2017 FOUNDATION PROGRAM

Become a stronger and more efficient athlete with our 12-week Fall Foundation Program. This program is designed for athletes who have some triathlon training experience and are willing to invest the time and effort in pre-season to ensure peak performance in their race season. We will challenge both your skills and fitness. You should be able to run ~4 miles, bike ~2 hours and swim ~½ mile freestyle. This is ideally combined with the Ironman Program or the 70.3/Short Course Program for the ultimate race training experience!

Now through December 23, 2017 

 

Pre-season is the ideal time to focus on developing the key elements of movement economy in swimming, biking and running. The Foundation Program is designed for athletes who already have some triathlon training experience and want to improve their performance. It is not an introductory program. You should be able to run 4 miles, bike 2 hours and swim ½ mile freestyle. Learn to run with light and fast feet, and to manage your effort level while running up or down hills. Train to handle your bike like a pro. Learn how to change a flat in under 4 minutes! How fast you swim/bike and run is secondary to how you do them in this program. Finesse now is fast later!

The FOUNDATION Program is ideally  combined with the IRONTEAM Program or the 70.3/SHORT COURSE Program for the ultimate training experience! If you are committed to be your best, this is your best choice.
