Q: What does it mean to belong to the TRIinfitness "coached" training program?
A: There are many benefits for all experience levels to train with a "coached" training program.
For starters, having your own coach is great for added motivation, helping you stay on task with
planned workouts that fit your current level of fitness, lifestyle needs and multi-sport goals.
The TRIinfitness coach knows when to push forward and deeper and also when to back off based
on experience levels, energy for the day and how your overall training is coming along. We provide
the coaching needed to not only help you enjoy the sport even more and remain injury-free.
The training is about quality rather than quantity - providing our athletes safe progression and efficiency
to get the most out of your training.
For beginner athletes, our coached programs provide great mentorship, helping you along every
step of the way. We are there to guide you when to go hard, when to take it easy and when to back
off. This is done during group workout sessions as well as guidance during the week away from the
group workout sessions, helping to keep you accountable so you can reach your triathlon goals -
whether its to complete your first triathlon or if you're wanting to hone in on specific training techniques
to reach a personal best.
The TRIinfitness coach brings high quality with years of experience and education, providing you the
one-on-one instruction in the group setting.
More important, the TRIinfitness coach is adept at helping you holistically; not only solving the
puzzle of training for multiple sports, but also injury prevention, optimizing training and
nutrition, managing the often overlooked skills, mental preparation, and last but not least,
Q: Do I have to be a paid member of TRIinfitness to participate in your workouts?
A: Your first one is on us. Come on out and meet the team, coach and workout mentors. To gain
the many great benefits of coached training with on-going guided support and valuable tips, you will
want to invest your time by joining the TRIinfitness training program.
Q:I might be away for some of the training due to work travels or family vacations, I'm not sure
that I want to pay for a training program if I have to miss any sessions.
A: This is very common with many of our athletes as life presents many obstacles that may take us away
from our training for a week or a session here or there. This is where the on-line coaching and email
support from your coach comes in handy. We are there to support you, providing tips on how to
maintain your training while on the road so you can still follow your training plan best as you can and
return back with the group to continue your training with your teammates.
Q: I only want to do the run (or bike) portion of the multi-sport training.
Can I still join in the TRIinfitness training program?
A: Of course you can! Cross training in any of the other sports is a great way to stay healthy overall,
getting you out and staying active. Often we have a member who starts out by doing only of the sports
offered during training, this is a great way to start. Or, some may be rehabbing a shoulder injury, so the
swim workouts are not a current option. We encourage all to come out to as many workouts as you
can, giving support back to your fellow team mates and keeping you on track in your fitness and
Q: How fit or fast do you need to be to join TRIinfitness? I'm worried I'm too slow and won't be
able to keep up and don't want to hold the group back.
A: Our goal is to get women out and active in a friendly, encouraging, all-paces welcome environment.
We accommodate for all fitness levels, speeds and ability levels. You train at your own pace and
Q: How do I find out about the TRIinfitness Multi-Sport workouts?

trainings. We also provide a private Facebook group page with all training updates, fitness tips and
more as well as a group page on Meet Up - TRIinfitness Women's Network.

new team members?
