12-week basic level training plan and corresponding weekly ZOOM call sessions geared towards “New to Triathlon” (or “haven’t raced in a long time”). The program will get you ready to take on a Try-A-Tri or Sprint triathlon.

Target race(s) for the Sprint distance would be the Toronto Triathlon Festival (TTF) or potentially other races (such as IronGirl in Grimsby in early August).

The intent of this clinic is to educate, motivate and provide opportunities and access to a “group coach” and provide athletes with the tools and confidence to achieve their goals of successfully completing their upcoming triathlon.

  • Significant learning opportunity – the better you are prepared, the higher the likelihood of success
  • Cost effective – significantly less costly than having a 1-1 coach
  • Opportunity to ask questions directly – weekly zoom calls
  • Build confidence prior to race day / alleviate some of the pre-race jitters 
  • Learn some of the Triathlon Ontario key rules to avoid penalties e.g. drafting, helmet rules, etc.
  • Will cover subjects on swim, bike, run, nutrition, and much more
  • Know what to do when things don’t go the way as planned on race day 
  • Provide a general 12 week training plan for Sprint Distance triathlon (with appropriate modifications for “try-a-tri” distance)
  • Issued in 4 week blocks
  • Available on Training Peaks via special link (provided prior to clinic)
  • Aimed at the above listed races but could be used for later races if desired
  • Facilitated weekly ZOOM calls for 30-45 minutes consisting of the following:
    • Structured weekly topics (see attached for details)
    • Presentation format via ZOOM to educate and enable increased knowledge plus ample time for questions 
    • May also include some live demos (e.g. how to change a tire)
