Holiday Party!
The Central Florida Tri Club will be hosting there annual Holiday party on December 19, 2015. The location will be held at Zachary Sinnott home:
Location:
1900 Temple Drive
Winter Park FL 32789
Time: 5 pm – 8 pm
Food – what to bring: Bring your favorite dish so you can share with your fellow teammates. We will provide a protein.
White elephant gift exchange: Bring a gift worth <$25. It will be a fun game.
Donate to Knights Pantry at UCF
UCF Students need your help! On UCF campus there is necessary resource available for students in need of food and clothing: the Knight’s Pantry. Since rigorous data collection began in 2011, we have assisted about 9,500 per semester, and that number is increasing annually! In these four years, we have provided over 110,000 pounds of food to UCF students!
A key component to exceling in college includes being able to maintain a healthy sustainable diet and being able to apply for jobs and internships, and hopefully landing an interview. For students who have to choose between buying textbooks and eating, we have found that without expendable income students will attempt to cut corners and go without proper nutrition, hygiene items, or the ability to look professional on job interviews. With a month away from school, and the resources that come with it, winter break can seem daunting for Knights in need.
In order to accommodate our students and offer the best opportunity for success regardless of economic starting point, we have been collecting non-perishable and canned food items, professional clothing for both men and women, and various hygiene items. If you by chance have any not-immediately-perishables, excess toiletries or business clothing and would be willing to donate to UCF Students in need, please consider doing so.

Schedule your Bike Fitting – Today!

What are the benefits of a proper bike fit?

A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized efficiency.  An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding.  All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.

Who can benefit from a bike fit? 

Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, you will benefit from a bike fit.  Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective yet economical way to improve performance.

How long does a Bike fitting take? 

An average fit with fitting lasts 90 minutes.  However, if you have major adjustments or component changes, the fit may be longer.

Schedule your bike fitting today at:

2016 Triathlon Season 
Is it the adrenaline rush of the finish line? The discipline and structure of training? Or the sense of community you feel from fellow triathletes? Maybe it’s a little bit of everything that makes triathlon so indescribably addicting.

Whatever your reason, we’re giving you one more! Make a decision in 2016 on what races you want to do. If it is a Olympic Distance or up to an Ironman Distance, now it is the time to start building your strengths and weaknesses!

Many athletes from the club have races towards the end of the year and may others have started doing their Marathon training. If  you need guidance on how to plan your training and how does the club can help, please reach out to me.
