Ydub Co-ed Training - Fall 2018 - Partnering with Industrial Strength Fitness
YWCA’s triathlon training is a comprehensive program that provides review, and tactical coaching that will elevate swimming, biking, and running performance. 
This 6-week training will lead up to a YWCA Practice Triathlon on Sep 15th.

YWCA is partnering with Industrial Strength Fitness! What does this mean? It means you have access to more equipment including TRX, sleds, medicine balls, kettlebells, sand bags, and more! 
You’ll develop more overall strength as your body is challenged in different ways!

Prerequisites include: Ability to swim the freestyle stroke 250 yards non-stop (10-full lengths of the pool), bike 10-miles, and run/walk 2-miles.
