Drills will be identified and incorporated into your training plan.
Regular assessments will be conducted to document progress and provide continual visual feedback.
*All analyses are conducted at either the Triangle Aquatic Center or the Optimist Pool. Lane rentals are an additional fee and are paid for by the client.
Open Water Swim Training
Swimming in open water is a lot different than swimming in a pool as you can imagine. But don’t worry.
First, we’ll start in the pool with workouts designed to mimic open water swimming. Once your confidence grows, we’ll go out to the lake to roped-off swim areas. Eventually, we’ll take the training out to the open water.
Basic Gait Analysis
After a conversation about your goals and health history, we’ll assess your overall form, strike pattern, stride length, and cadence. These areas are critical when increasing your distance.
Running after you’ve already swum and cycled a considerable distance is tough. There are a few extra skills and additional training required to bring you safely to the finish line of a triathlon.
If three sports weren’t enough, the transitions in between each one can be complicated and time-consuming if they aren’t carefully planned and executed.
You’ll learn tips and tricks of the trade to make this part of your triathlon go smoothly.
Targeted Strength Training
A strong body is your first defense against injury. For endurance sports, it is also crucial in helping you maintain form over a long distance.
Before you begin your training program, you’ll receive a functional movement screen to identify any potential limiters and ensure you are prepared for additional loading and training.
A personalized strength training plan will be integrated into your overall training plan based on your needs, following the Original Strength principles.
We’ll return to the FMS screen regularly to assess your changing needs and document your progress.

A healthy nervous system is the foundation to athletic performance. Understanding how your body detects and responds to stress and being able to manage its effects, not only allows you to recover faster, but reduces the chances of overtraining, burnout, and injury.
Utilizing the principals of Original Strength, learn how to press RESET on your nervous system, unleashing your body’s potential.
Basic Nutrition Coaching
Your training and recovery can be enhanced with the right fuel.
By tracking your food intake, we’ll develop a nutrition plan to help you get the most out of your experience.
Race Day Preperation and Planning
Once you’re prepared physically and mentally, the perfect race day plan will make sure you know what to do, and how to adapt so you have a great experience.
