Summer BEGINNER triathlon program, starts early Aug…

20160419_183221 Want to become a TRIATHLETE? 

Why not train to complete your first triathlon? In early  August  2017, we are going to start a beginners group of first timers, aiming to complete our first sprint distance triathlon in February 2017. A sprint distance triathlon is a 750m swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run (a great challenge). Our goal will be a sprint triathlon here in Cape Town in February 2018. That gives us ample time, to get over the intimidation factor, to train effectively and learn all about triathlon before our first race! No level of experience is required. The more unfit the BETTER!

How the training works – Embark has been set up to guide first timers through the process of completing a triathlon. Embark runs all year round, although from August we start a new beginners group and in February, if the bug has bitten, you can then go on to focus on 70.3 Half IRONMAN. Even if you have completed a couple of triathlons before, the coaching and group sessions that Embark offers will prove invaluable to your overall experience.

img-20160430-wa0032Embark offers a coached group swim session, run session and bike session each week, and you receive a weekly program to complete on your own, in your own time. The advantage of group training is that it keeps motivation levels up and aids in healthy competition for progression. As the sessions are coached, there is always a coach available to ask questions and answer queries.

During the months leading up to the race, we will complete single discipline races and events to get us prepared for the distances. We will practice swimming in the sea, swimming in dams and swimming in indoor and outdoor pools. We will become confident bike riders, confident runners, and in time confident triathletes! We get nutritional experts in to give us guidance about training and preparing for race day, and we assist in correct equipment choice for the race. Although Embark takes utmost care in injury prevention, should you get injured, we are aligned with professional biokentisists , physio-therapists and leading sports practitioners in order to recommended the best in the industry.

The Embark program costs just R699 per month. The groups are going to be limited in size, so if you are keen on getting the correct coaching for multisport, please book your spot in the beginners group soon.

Please contact us for further information regarding the Embark beginners training program or register online.
