Our next Transformer group programs start on November 6th and November 20th. You will be a more skilled and stronger triathlete by Christmas! How exciting is that!

If you want to swim more efficiently, swim faster and become a better triathlete swimmer before the next season, then this 12 week plan can make all the difference. Designed to focus on improving your swimming skill, and developing your fitness and swim strength, you will see minutes coming off your swim time, with a few weeks.

Transform Your Triathlon Core

If you want to be a stronger, more durable athlete next season then improving your core and tri specific muscle strength can make all the difference. Across the board this will improve your swim, bike and run performance.

The 12 week course teaches you core specific exercises that will fire up your muscles and help you to improve both your strength and your speed. By building stronger muscles in your upper and lower body, combined with improving your core strength between the two, your body will begin to work more efficiently.

Again, there are two levels of this program, so it will work for you if you haven’t done any core training for the last year, or if you’re already including strength work in your training but want a more targeted approach.
