This program has been designed by Sharone Aharon, USAT Level III coach, to meet the training requirements of athletes at any ability level.
This training group is for you whether you are:
- an individual focused on improving your form and technique to finish the race strong
- a beginner or an intermediate athlete with some multisport experience, prepared to take your race day performance to the next level
- an athlete with a long-term goal of completing a full Ironman
All participants receive an online training program, which details exactly what to do each day to reach your specific race day goal. Participants will train with like-minded athletes twice per week, guided closely by Well-Fit's USA Triathlon-certified coaches who will not only share knowledge but provide additional motivation.
Two classes each week will take place at the world-class Well-Fit Training Center, the Whitney Young Pool, the UIC Physical Education Building Pool, Northerly Island and Ohio Street Beach. Dates and times are listed in the class registration section below. The program includes a fully-support 56-mile group ride.
The program will be led by Coach Ted Ramos, who has years of experience helping athletes accomplish their goals at the half-Ironman distance. He will be assisted by other Well-Fit coaches and Elite Team athletes.Testimonials
"I wanted to let you know that my Well-Fit training for Steelhead was one of the most rewarding and incredible experiences I've ever had. Noelle and John were phenomenal coaches, the camp was unforgettable, my team members were amazing, and all of the well-planned workouts led me to a great race. I'm not exactly a natural athlete, but I really enjoy setting and achieving goals for myself. I'm really excited to participate in more Well-Fit training programs this year." - Anne Bowers, Steelhead 2010
"Can't say enough about how much this training group and Coach Ted and just everyone has made this so much more fun and inspiring. Hope to see you all around Well-Fit!" - Adi Merchant, Muncie 2012
