Well-Fit Ironman Wisconsin Training Program

February 2nd - September 11th, 2016

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, Mont Tremblant, Louisville, and Lake Tahoe. Our coaches will help you prepare for the specific needs of your Ironman, where ever it may be.

  • 31 weeks of an organized training plan with detailed daily workouts
  • Coaching support led by two exceptional USAT Level II coaches with over 50 years of combined coaching and racing experience including the Ironman World Championship in Kona
  • Three coached classes per week
