NIFS Offers 10th Year of Women's Triathlon Training, Today

Attention Ladies: The National Institute for Fitness and Sport (NIFS) Go Girl Triathlon Training Program prepares you for the Go Girl Triathlon at Eagle Creek Park on August 27th. Training begins at 5:30pm on Tuesday June 21st at NIFS in downtown Indianapolis.

Whether you are new to triathlons or have done a few in the past, the NIFS training program offers three different skill level training plans to ensure that you are training appropriately for the race. NIFS tri-training program is developed by USAT Certified coaches and fitness specialists from NIFS.

Past participant, Holly Drendel, said this about her experience, "The training is fantastic! Not only do you feel great about yourself in general, you have the support of great coaches to help with the mental and physical demands of it. They've been there and know what you are experiencing. For a beginner like myself, it was great and I will most definitely be participating again next year! This was a great group of women, hands down!"

This 11-week program meets at a NIFS, the IU Natatorium on the IUPUI campus, and Eagle Creek Park to complete a weekly workout of running, biking, swimming, or a combination of the disciplines each Tuesday from 6/21-8/23 at 5:30p. The program includes race entry into the Go Girl Triathlon, detailed training plan, a program t-shirt, weekly snacks and refreshments, and a celebration dinner.
