Must have training for new and nervous triathletes. Premium Open Water Training taught by Ironman Series Author and multiple Ironman Finisher Ingrid Loos Miller. This class is focused on preparing triathletes for all aspects of the swim leg--best to take this class BEFORE you have a bad experience at your first open water race. Fee includes a copy of the book, unlimited retakes of the class, a swim cap and wetsuit rental.
Skills include primarily anxiety-management and race strategy for the newbie triathlete. If you have hyperventilated in the water (most of us have), this class is for you. Learn crucial skills including the Fearless Swimming Skillset - mental strategies and preparation, goal setting, warm-up procedures, cold water protocol, mob swimming, seeding, breathing break techniques and more.
Class is taught in a flat-water lagoon. If you need help with surf and waves, contact the instructor for a private ocean-skills session.
