World Age Group Champs Training Program

You may have seen some posts recently about FIT’s previous age group world triathlon girls? Would you like to wear the green and gold at the triathlon Age Group World Champs at the Gold Coast in 2018? Qualifiers for the World Champs kick off in October and a number of FIT members are planning their campaigns NOW.  With this aim in mind, we have teamed up with sports coach, Jeremy Kimpton from Fit Happens, who is writing a training plan for FIT to use in conjunction with existing FIT sessions. This triathlon focused training plan will be periodised over the course of the qualifying races and the months leading up to the Gold Coast World Championships next year.

Members who sign up to this program, with the aim of qualifying for the 2018 event, will receive a copy of the group plan (specific to either the Olympic or Sprint distance) which will have a few

simple adjustments tailored to their needs, strengths, weaknesses, injuries, and any modifications they require. Participants in the program will be required to make an initial commitment of $25 per month for a minimum of three months starting on 4th September. It is expected that there will be a limited number of places available so early registration and payment will be required to secure a place.  Register for the program here.  Registration closes on the 11th August.  For more information contact Please note it is a  prerequisite for this program that you have full competing membership of Triathlon Australia.

Depending on interest, we are also considering a second in take into the program, possibly in October running for 10 weeks.  This will be a great opportunity for those who have already participated in a triathlon and want to freshen up their skills and get race ready for the upcoming tri season.  Please contact to register your interest for this program.

To assist with your preparation, some fee based FIT group sessions may be offered in conjunction with these programs (depending on numbers) including Triathlon Swim Stroke Correction, Equipment & Bike Set-up, Race Preparation and Nutrition Information.  Keep an eye out over the next couple of months for notice of upcoming events.
