Each program is developed in a manner to help make cyclists faster and more confident in their ability to ride outdoors whether it be for a race, Gran Fondo, cycling tour or the local group ride.

The program offers training sessions in each of the three triathlon activities (swimming, cycling and running) in a friendly and encouraging environment, and will also cover off the ‘forth’ discipline of what and how to get through the transitions from Swim to Bike and Bike to Run. You will also get training nutrition tips, learn how to fuel for your race, and additional tips on what to wear.

3433 Tri Brick Training

3433 Triathlon Swim
AGE: 17Y+ // These swim workouts are led by our experienced coaches who utilize the most current teaching and training techniques specific to triathlon swimming. Workouts typically range from 2,000-3,400 metres depending on the speed of the swimmer and the focus of the workout - i.e. technical drills, sprints, pace work/endurance etc. Our coaches provide a program that builds from a more technical focus in the fall, to a more swim-fitness period in the winter and spring and then open-water specific sessions as we approach the race season. The coaches also perform ongoing swim assessments to help monitor the progression and development of each athlete and use the results to determine training paces for the workout
