Sleekgeek have partnered with Exercise Solutions, a leading quality and experienced Triathlon coaching brand, to offer you the experienced coaching and support you need to achieve your half Iron Man in East London 70.3 in Jan 2016. We are assembling a team of top experts to assist you on your journey.
You can run and train for a half marathon without a coach or by yourself. You can go to gym without a personal trainer but TRUST us if you are considering getting into the exciting sport of Triathlon and the exciting world of Iron Man you do NOT want to do this without professional guidance and with a team behind you.
That is why we have created this program for you with top partners.
Our Head coach Samantha Harrington has 10 years’ experience both locally and internationally in the triathlon game aims to bring all our athletes top class coaching, knowledge and attention to detail.
As well as your expert coaching team from Exercise Solution your Program Director is Jason Wilford who is a nearing 40 Managing Director, dad to twin 6 year olds and Serious Tri-Geek … Having been selected to represent SA at an age group level in both the standard and ultra distances. He will be competing at Olympic distance world champs in Chicago this year. In 2015 he would have competed in 2 full Ironmen and 7 half Ironman. He will be your air traffic controller, making sure the right advice and info reaches you, from the right sources – when you need it.
This is a 6 month program with the first goal to prepare you to do the Germiston 5150 in November 2015. After that the next 3 months prepares you to stand on the beach in East London next year to achieve your Half Iron Man.
