How to Balance Life and Triathlon    

Monday, August 1, 2016 by Coach Lawrence

One of the hardest parts of training is balancing our life responsibilities with the need and desire to get out and train.  Most of us have other obligations outside of triathlon that stretch our ability to do what we enjoy. While my job is pretty flexible and allows me to get my training in, my […]

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.

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 […]

Coach Kevin’s Take on Nutrition

Monday, May 11, 2015 by Coach Kevin

I have been told that my “bedside” coaching manner is not the gentlest—so, fair warning—I’m calling it like it is in this blog, and will give you the hard facts on nutrition and calories. The gist of my argument is that there is no magic in calories and there are equally no excuses for taking […]

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 […]
