Next Course Commencement Date: starts 12 October 2019
If you are interested in becoming involved in the sport of triathlon, then a NOVICE TRIATHLON Program is a great place to start.
We at Exceed Triathlon Club are running a Novice Course to help you understand the ins and outs of triathlon.
Let's get straight to the bottom line of it, Triathlon IS for everyone. It is not as scary or hard as it is made out by the media or posts on social media. It is a bunch of people of all ages and most importantly abilities, getting together to train and race over a course that includes swimming, cycling and running. It is also a lot of fun. The camaraderie amongst triathletes is second to none, it really is a case of " we are all in this together".
While some of you may be good swimmers , you may never have run or cycled, other of you may be cyclists but never swam. This course is designed to get you a little fitter and to get you swimming, cycling and running effectively so you will be able to finish a triathlon. We will teach you transitions which are so important to you when you are competing and will also save you so much time. We will give you the information you need , not the stuff you don't.
The aim of this course is for Beginners or Novices, therefore there is no set minimum fitness level for participation. All sessions will be in a controlled environment, which means that you can go at your own pace and will never be too far from base.
Apart from learning all the skills and basic techniques to enter this sport you will also train the same group of people for the duration of the course and develop strong friendships with an encouraging group of like mindedpeople. And, once the course is finished, it is an easier transition to the main squad if you have a few training buddies to go with.
