A’la Carte Classes

A’la carte classes feature sport specific training on the day/time you select. Training is offered month to month with the flexibility to start/stop at any time and priority of training on your specific goals or a broad introduction. Scheduling is subject to coach availability.

Intermediate Tri Class
So you have done a race or two and are looking for a plan to follow as well as a group to train with. We will take your triathlon training to the next level.

Intermediate Tri Swim
So you know how to swim but are looking for a group to train with. We will do some drill work but mostly work on building strength and endurance to gain speed in the water.

Beginner Class
Tri Swim includes stroke analysis and evaluation with lots of drill work and technique and progresses from the very beginner start up techniques to race ready for swimming efficiency as well as triathlon skills for racing.

Strength for Triathletes
A much neglected part of the triathlete is the stretching and strength needed to keep you injury free and performing at your best all season long. This class will improve performance.

By Appointment Only

Triathlon Personal Training includes fitness testing with detailed personal training plan using heart rates and state of the art customized workouts. We will address core and over all strength in each discipline and use our one on one sessions to accomplish your goals. Private Swim Lessons EVEN FOR THE NON SWIMMER includes every aspect of the freestyle swim stroke. Learn to swim again by going back to the basics and working on breathing, balance in the water and stroke efficiency and so much more. INTERESTED in a Specialized Class? You and at least 3 friends can meet with me and we will design your class. I’ll set up a class for you and we’ll cover all the aspects of SWIM/BIKE/RUN and so much more.

No swim, No problem
I specialize in the beginner and non swimmer.
I had to learn from scratch as an adult. I can help.

My first experience in elite competition was in rowing, initially at the collegiate level and ultimately in national and International events. After taking a break from racing to start a family in 2000 I started competing in triathlons in 2000. In 2007 I raced the White Lake Half Iron distance and qualified for Long Course Worlds in Lorient, France placing 4th in my age group with a time of 4:50.36. In 2008 I won the 35-39 age group at St. Anthony’s Triathlon, the largest US Olympic distance race, with a 2:22.16. In 2009 I qualified for Duathlon Worlds and placed 9th in the 10k run 24 mile bike 5k run with a time of 2:12.17.
