What is TRIactive?
TRIactive is a 6-week beginner triathlon program designed to make the sport of triathlon accessible to all whilst encouraging increased levels of adult exercise and participation in a fun and inclusive team environment.
The program is coached by accredited Triathlon Australia TRIactive Coaches and is designed to develop old and new skills whilst building your confidence as you work towards completing your first triathlon!
Pool-based swimming sessions with an accredited Triathlon Australia coach will help develop not only your baseline swim fitness, but your confidence and technique too.
By the final week of the program, your swim confidence will be given a boost ahead of race day when your coach takes your group for an organised open-water swimming session to make sure you are ready for the start line.
Using spin bikes will help develop bike-specific fitness and leg strength in a safe environment, free from road traffic.
The TRIactive spin bike sessions will gradually develop to include running off the bike so that you are accustomed to how your legs feel on race day.
The run component of your program will gradually increase during the bike sessions in order to get you accustomed to walking and then running off-the-bike.
The time spent running will reflect the demands of your specific race and this will help prepare you and build your confidence to complete your first triathlon and cross the finish line with a smile on your face!
An important part of completing your first triathlon will be having the confidence and know-how to make smooth changes between the swim/bike and bike/run sections of your event.
These phases are called transitions and your coach will simplify this part of the triathlon event-day process by practising it during your final TRIactive sessions immediately prior to the weekend of your event.
You will also receive our "Top 10 Tips for Race Day" to help keep you on track.
With your TRIactive swim-bike-run program completed, you'll be confident and raring to go with your team mates on event day and relish that finish line satisfaction as you cross the line a triathlete!
