GAITHERSBURG, MD – February 6, 2013 – Worried about open water swimming? Unsure what to expect during hectic transitions? Confused about the TRI ‘lingo’ (what the heck is a brick workout anyway?). We’ve got answers!

Once per month, over the next 3 months, Fleet Feet Sports, Gaithersburg is offering a free triathlon training seminar. Each seminar will focus on a specific portion of the triathlon.

In our first seminar we will have Matt McGoey from All-American Bikes in-house to discuss everything and anything related to the strenuous bike portion of the event. He is a successful cyclist and bicycling specialty store owner, with many years of experience and multiple cycling certifications. This seminar begins at 6:30pm on February 25th, 2013 at our Gaithersburg Kentlands’ store.

Part 2 focuses in on the almost-always, dreaded, feared, loathed swimming event. Whether the swim for your triathlon takes place in a pool or a dark, murky lake, swim coach and personal trainer – Janet Witkowski, will provide great information and training tips to make the swim a little less daunting. Come prepared to ask Janet all of your swim-related questions, anything from wearing a swim cap to stroke technique is fair game, on March 18th at 6:30pm.

The final portion of our TRI Seminar Series will encompass two key aspects of any triathlon – the run and transitions. Lloyd Henry from ONPoint Fitness will be on-hand to go over tips and tricks for making the switch from swim to bike and bike to run as smooth, successful and FAST as possible!

Also, as the recently announced official running shoe of the Ironman Triathlon, Newton Running will be here to discuss ways to finish strong during the final leg of your 1st (or 50th) triathlon. This final seminar will be held April 22nd at 6:30pm.

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned TRI vet, each of our 3 FREE seminars will provide great information and training tips.
