In its 13th year, the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon has already become one of the country's premiere mid season tri events, drawing a substantial international and professional field. The swim portion in the Hudson River is America's fastest Olympic distance swim. This class would be great if you're a fit beginner, or if you have some tri experience we can help you to set a PR.
The twice weekly workouts will be a combination of run, bike and bricks workouts. Improved pacing, increased endurance and strength and transitioning will be the overriding focus of the class. In addition to our twice weekly group workouts we also have an Online Training component which is updated weekly to let you know what we're doing in class that week as well as some suggested in-between class homework.
We will have TWO group swim workouts. One pool workout (May 6th) at the beginning of the class that will work in conjunction with our weekly online swim coaching. We will cover all of the basic swim drills in class so that you will better understand and are able maximize the online coaching. The second will be an Open Water Swim Workshop at the midpoint of the program which will provide you with the essential open water skills necessary for a successful race day. If a stronger swim concentration is desired all program participants will have priority discount entry into one of our fitness level specific tri-swim classes.
We've developed this program for someone who can already swim 250 yards continuously, run 3 miles continuously and can bike 12 miles continuously.
Ample time is devoted to race day preparation so that if this is your first triathlon, you will be well informed and prepared.
