Free Training Plans

Every year we publish our free training plans for beginning and intermediate triathletes, offering an introductory 12-week schedule to prepare for the race.

If you need help or want a personalized training plan or ongoing coaching that considers your own strengths, weaknesses, goals, schedules and priorities, we have a number of personal trainers ready to help. We hope you have a positive and fun training experience and are ready to have a great triathlon experience.
