Club Training

Born2Tri caters for all abilities and ages from 18-80+ (in fact our 80+ member is the world duathlon champion 2014 and 2015 so he’s no slouch!) and our training sessions reflect this.

Monday: swim session at the Braintree Swimming Centre at Freeport in Braintree. 9-10 p.m. this is a coached session and as we hire all lanes we can cater for all abilities plus we have a lane specifically set aside for more in depth stroke and swim analysis using the club’s own video equipment. We’ll give you a memory stick with your footage on it to keep and then bring to each session to be used for just your video analysis.   The cost is £3.00 for members (which is less than for a public swim) and £6.00 for non-members.

Wednesday: alternate weeks we have coached run sessions at Braintree Leisure Centre (or Tabor School as it is during the day) in Panfield Lane and a club Wattbike session at Indoor Revolution in Braintree, please check the training calendar

Thursday: (summer only) open water swim, run and social session at Tri-Farm near Boreham. Meeting at 6.00 p.m. you can do all three or just one. To ease the socialising they sell tea. coffee and cake!

Friday: coached swim technique session at Braintree Swimming Centre from 8-9 p.m. This is a more intense coached session where we have a maximum of four people in a lane with two qualified coaches to help on that all important swim efficiency.

Saturday: group bike rides led by one of our CTC trained ride leaders. These are split by speed and distance ranging from Group 1 which is at the speed of the slowest rider and is a gradual programme to build up fitness riding at 12-14 mph on average and ranging between 20-30 miles (depending the level of ability of those riding),  Group 2 15-17 mph 35-40 miles and then Group 3 which is the 18mph+ group. Meet at the Discovery Centre in Great Notley Country Park for a 9.00 a.m. departure.

Sunday: on the first Sunday of each month we have a run-bike-run session meeting at Rayne Station for a 9.00 a.m. start, you can do any element of the session so there’s no need to do the whole thing. This will be run by one of our coaches. We also have mountain bike sessions in the Winter and again check the training calendar for more details.

All these sessions are for all abilities so you don’t have to be Jodie Stimpson or the Brownlee brothers to come and join in!
