Drills will be identified and incorporated into 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.
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
Lock in those gains with the right fuel for training and recovery.
Your training will include a basic introduction to daily nutrition with a focus on the “big three,” carbohydrates, protein, and fats. You’ll also learn about your body’s recovery needs, and race day logistics.
By tracking your daily food intake, your needs can be addressed and modified for a personalized nutrition plan.
Race Day Perperation
We’ll discuss things to prepare and do the week of an event, the night before, the morning of, and of course, during and after the event. We’ll leave no stone unturned.
Having the perfect race plan will calm your nerves and give you the confidence to compete well.
