Friday, July 15, 2016 by Coach Kristen

I often hear people question on how to stay active while traveling.  I recently took a trip to Montreal and wanted to share a few tips I used to stay active… 1) Two weeks prior to traveling I searched online for local triathlon clubs.  I contacted the director and asked if I could drop in […]



Mistakes Triathletes Make

Friday, July 1, 2016 by Coach Tommy

Judging their training success in hours and distance trained Many athletes focus too much on achieving a certain number of hours of training or a particular distance. They judge the success of their training on how much training they can get in during the week. They don’t give any thought to the other aspects of […]



How to Avoid Burn Out

Tuesday, June 21, 2016 by Coach Denise

I’ve always had a “if some is good, then more is better” attitude. While fun, this has not always served me well. I did my first Ironman in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that I proceeded to do another one the following year and then another one the year after that. While fun, that […]



Seven Habits of Highly Successful Triathletes

Sunday, February 21, 2016 by Coach Tommy

A long time ago, during the ‘80s, in a galaxy far, far away, I read a book titled The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  This book changed the way I managed my personal and professional life.  I still use many of the concepts in that book.  In fact, I still use […]



Make a Comeback

I have appointed myself the queen of the comeback. I’ve had more injuries than I can even count. I’ve had broken bones and expensive pieces of metal put in my back.

Thursday, March 19, 2015 by Coach Kristen

Do you ever feel like your purpose in this sport is greater than what you have been doing?  What the status quo of every other triathlete seems to be about?  The feeling that getting into the sport of triathlon is not just about yourself, but about a greater purpose?  Yeah, you’re getting healthy while doing […]



Race Roulette

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by Coach Denise

Around this time of year, everyone starts to look at which races and events that they want to do. Often, we pick races based on which ones our friends are doing which is a perfectly reasonable reason to do a race. I once did an Ironman solely because a friend of mine was turning 50 […]



Tri’ing is for all types…

Thursday, July 11, 2013 by Coach Kristen

It really is just about getting out there and doing something that maybe you know you can do with confidence, or you are nervous as all get out and unsure whether you will finish, or maybe it’s something that someone else thinks is best for you…no matter why you show up race morning, just know you all have to go through the same things…you swim, you bike, you run…you finish what you started.
