ENJOY THE PROCESS
Here at Givin_It_A_Tri I take the confusion and stress out of your training plans to create a more enjoyable training experience. We will utilize different phases in your training throughout the year.
Foundation – This is the most important part of training, we talk about strengths and tackle weaknesses, and put into action how we will improve and get better for the following phases. This is typically 6 months out from your goal events.
Preparation – We start to build your fitness towards that S.M.A.R.T. goal. The skills and weaknesses that were worked on during the foundation phase will start to get sharpened with specific training and improved skill.
Race – We are specifically deep into a training plan, training in race like conditions based on what type of event you have and the race course conditions (hilly terrain etc.) and continuing to hone your individual strengths and weaknesses.
From couch to 5k, your first go at a Duathlon, Triathlon or looking for that PR! I can work with you at any endurance distance or goals, with S.M.A.R.T fundamentals and accountability to reach them.
