Pre Race Open Water Swim Clinic

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced swimmer, there is no substitute for training in open water. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to train in the same waters you will be racing. Life Time Tri is excited to host this event for the 2017 South Beach Triathlon, with 100% of proceeds going directly to featured charity partner, Save the Children.

The swim clinic will cover the following basics:

INDOOR TRIATHLON

Indoor_Tri_4cIf you’ve ever wanted to try a tri, this is where to start. The 60-minute indoor workout will feature a 10-minute pool swim, 30-minute spin on a bike, 20-minute treadmill run and is the perfect way to kick-start your triathlon training. The indoor triathlon is based on time rather than distance — meaning you receive points for going further in a specific period of time, not going faster over a fixed distance. Participants are graded on a curve.

All Indoor Tri participants will receive:

  • “Triathlete” Indoor Tri lifestyle shirt
  • Race bib
  • Swim cap
  • Additional great offers from Life Time for members and guests
  • Results posted after on indoortri.com

Athletes of all abilities from beginner to experienced are invited. Indoor Tri events are open to both members and non-members of Life Time Fitness.
