- You are curious about the sport and have wanted to try it out for awhile.
- You are someone who wants to develop total fitness while trying something new.
- You have a real life that you need to work around (jobs, kids, etc.).
- You want to make some awesome friends. Triathletes, for the most part, are just awesome people.
- You are not 100% new to swimming. While there will be guidance for beginner to intermediate level swimmers, this program is not a replacement for swimming lessons. You should be able to swim at least 400 meters continuously before starting this program. If you need help? Check out some of Coach Gerber's swimming articles available on Breaking Muscle.
How is TriStrong Different?
There are three key components that make TriStrong stand out: it’s built for fun, it is made to work with real lives (you know, like the ones with crying babies, demanding jobs and all that stuff that gets in the way of training sometimes), and it focuses on total fitness, not just endurance.
In the programming guide you will get a good feel for how this program is built to be flexible enough for your unique life.
