Well-Fit Ironman Wisconsin Training Program
February 4th - September 8th, 2013
NEW for 2013: Well-Fit's Ironman Wisconsin training program has expanded to the Western and Northern Suburbs!
The Well-Fit Ironman Wisconsin training program is designed to provide comprehensive training and support to successfully complete Ironman. Since 2009, we've helped over 100 athletes cross the finish line at Ironman Wisconsin. Each year, our group consists of beginners (even those who have never done a triathlon!) as well as those who have already completed an Ironman. Our program includes weekly coached sessions to provide you with periodized training and technical feedback as well as triathlon-related education to improve yourself as an athlete. We coach to the whole athlete. Completing an Ironman is more than just doing the training - it’s doing the right training at the right time in addition to integrating proper nutrition, recovery and mindset. With 17 athletes per class, participants find training partners at similar speeds in the swim, bike and run. No matter where you are in your journey as an athlete or what pace you go, you will find a welcoming place in our group and detailed education, guidance and support from our coaches.
Please note: The timing of our program works well for participants training for Ironman Wisconsin, Canada or Louisville. Our coaches will help you prepare for the specific needs of your Ironman, where ever it may be.
Ironman Wisconsin Training Program Includes:
- 31 weeks of an organized training plan with detailed daily workouts designed to help you complete Ironman Wisconsin
- Two coached classes per week
- Unlimited communication with experienced coaches
- Video swim technique analysis
- Two supported rides on the Ironman Wisconsin course in Madison (dates to be determined)
