Racing Well - Maximise your performance in Triathlon
Sat 3 June 2017, 10:00 – 15:00 BST
Are you a triathlete or endurance athlete? Do you want to learn how to maximise your performance by understanding how to get the best out of yourself on race day? you answered yes, then this is the workshop for you!
Trinamcis is a new service based in Manchester that help athletes maximise performance and realise their athletic potential. We help athletes maximise their success by providing them with access to experts in biomechanical assessment, human performance analysis and coaching.
As part of our workshop series to help more people learn the secrets of maximising their success we have created a workshop based on increasing athlete's understanding of how to get the best out of themselves on race day. The workshop will focus on open water swimming skills, transition skills and preparing for your race. The day is suitable for new and intermediate triathletes.
This Triathlon workshop will provide you with the tools to improve your overall triathlon technique and how to use all those tools independently in order to achieve the best results when competing. The workshop is designed by our in-house triathlon coach Garrie Prosser, a competitive triathlete and highly qualified coaching expert. In this workshop, Garrie will help you understand more about preparation for the race, swimming skills, transitions and after the race recovery.
First, you will have a practical swimming workshop where Garrie will explain the essential skills needed in order to achieve your best when in water.
After lunch, Garrie will advise you and gather everyone to take part in transitions skills workshop which is vital for maximising your performance when competing.
Next Garrie will prepare you for the week before the race, give all the essential information for the preparation for your race on the race day and also give some advice and tips on how to recover your body after the competition.
To finish, the floor is then open to ask any questions about training, racing, preparation and recovery.
