Triathlon Training

Triathlon Training for Every Body
Now's your chance to take yourself to a new level!

Who is a Triathlete?
Triathletes come in all sizes, shapes and backgrounds. They range from stay at home moms & dads to lawyers, biologists and construction workers. Some are serious and very focused on doing better. Others have a relaxed attitude and workout so they can drink more beer without gaining too much weight. 

Reasons to Become a Triathlete
Great way to meet others & socialize
Awesome for runners or bikers with over-use injuries
Keeps training from getting boring
Not everyone can be good at all 3 sports, so there is always something you'll be better at and things you need to work on
It's a challenge like no other
Misery loves company (oops, I was supposed to delete that one!)

Triathlon Handouts

These are handouts I use with clients and classes. One is a list of equipment and supplies helpful for race day. The other are topics I cover in my seminars.

Why Tri?

Swim to Run Transition in San Fran.
As a personal trainer I see people everyday who under estimate what they can do physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Triathlons allow you to be in a situation where you learn about your strengths and weaknesses. The great part is no one is good at all 3 sports. Many triathletes are runners or bikers wanting to cross train and they start doing triathlons. Very few are typically strong swimmers.

Triathlons are a great way to get in shape and keep you focused on your fitness goals.

Carla's Triathlon Experience

Escape from Alcatraz Tri
Carla's been doing triathlons since 2006. Her triathlons include local races such as the Colony Christmas Triathlon, Gold Nugget, Eagle River Tri, Big Lake Tri, and the State Triathlon. She traveled to Washington State to compete in the Grand Columbian Tri & to San Franscisco twice for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.

Carla is an ACE Certified Personal Trianer and Group Fitness Instructor. She's taught others to swim and is a group cycle instructor. Carla's best sport of the 3 is swimming. She's a graduate of Total Immersion Swimming & Chi Running courses.

Carla has been to workshops and trained with Dave Scott, Chris McCormick (Macca), and the Chris Carmichael crew. She even drafted off Macca in the pool, not for very long of course.

Carla is a member of the Alaska Triathlon Club, Team Endurance and Tri4Him.
