Want to Try a Tri

Have you ever wanted to try a triathlon? Well now is your chance, Giant Strides Fitness will be putting together a training group for the Lifetime Triathlon on September 22, 2013 in Tempe. You can choose between the Sprint Distance which is a 400 swim, 10 mile bike, and 3.2 mile run, or the International Distance which is a 1500 meter swim, 24 mile bike, and 6.2 mile run. You will swim in Tempe town lake then bike and run in the same area.

Training is already underway but you’re welcome to join the program. The training schedule will consist of five days of training with at least one discipline per day with two days off per week if you choose to do the Sprint. If you choose to do the International Distance there will be some days that will require two disciplines in a day. I will be writing the programs and we will do a group workout on Saturdays and some group swims on Sundays. The programs will cost $200.00 for the Sprint and $250.00 for the International distance .

Please let me know if you are interested in participating in this program or if you would like to be part of a 3 man team that does the event together. Also, let me know if you have any questions about the program. I hope that everyone considers giving it a try!
