Special Olympics Triathlon Training Clinic

We had a great triathlon clinic this past weekend. We had an amazing turnout. Very proud of all the athletes. All of their hard work is paying off. Special thanks to the coaches and unified partners for their time and energy. We are so grateful for their help and support!

Amino Acids During Training

To maximize performance, it is essential to supplement amino acids throughout training. Amino acids provide the fuel your muscles need to work harder and longer while preventing muscle breakdown during intense exercise. Therefore, i encourage you to take some amino acids supplement for you that fits your individual needs. For more information on how to properly fuel your body, please visit don’t hesitate to contact me.

5 Tips on Keeping Motivated During Triathlon Season

Great Article

Running Clinic Recap

If you’re a triathlete, understanding the key elements of running is essential to improving your performance. In our latest Running Clinic Recap, we found that integrating proper breathing techniques and building strides into your workout routine can make a major difference in your overall technique and endurance. We’ll take an in-depth look at how these exercises will help strengthen your speed and agility in no time!

Overview of the Running Clinic Session

Our running clinic session was a success! We had an amazing turnout and we were able to provide useful tips on running economy and efficiency that can help runners improve their running performance. Our head coach discussed the importance of proper form and gave out drills that athletes can use to improve their running mechanics. He also instructed on various strategies to avoid injuries, such as strength exercises, stretches, foam rolling, and nutrition. During the clinic, we also answered questions from our attendees about running program planning and how to monitor data throughout a race season. Altogether, it was an informative evening that runners would benefit from joining each time it is offered.

Key Takeaways on Proper Form and Technique

Understanding proper running form and technique is essential in order to optimize performance and reduce the risk of injury. During our recent running clinic, experienced coaches highlighted the importance of posture, foot-fall, stability, balance and power production. We learned that by adjusting certain aspects of our mechanics such as stride length, arm pump and neck placement, we can maximize our efficiency on the track or road. Additionally, the coaches provided a range of dynamic drills to help participants become more aware of how their body moves when running in order to ultimately improve speed and endurance. Overall it was an informative session that left us ready to start practicing better form!

All in all, the recent running clinic provided invaluable knowledge and insight for any aspiring runner. With an extensive overview of proper form and technique, training tips for improving performance, the various health and wellness benefits associated with regular exercise, strategies to avoid injury while running, and a Q&A session with an expert coach, the clinic was a comprehensive experience that yielded great results from participants. For anyone looking to take up running as a hobby or serious endeavor, this clinic served as a great introduction to what lies ahead. Whatever your ambition may be, it’s important to always remember to respect your body and take necessary precautions while running in order to succeed at your goal safely and healthily.

For more information, don’t hesitate to contact the Coach.
