Club Info: There are three different triathlon teams at Lifetime Fitness. Each team focuses on the race distance that the member would like to compete.
The Beginner Team focuses on Sprint and Olympic distance races. The Beginner Team is comprised of many clinics to take a person who has never done a triathlon to doing their first sprint on Memorial weekend at Island Lake Recreation Area. It is comprised of over 150 members. Clinics for Beginners include swimming instruction and video, transition clinics, bike clinics, run clinics with concentration on good form running presented by New Balance, and all the instruction needed to make the first timer comfortable to successfully complete their first triathlon. The Beginner will get an opportunity to participate in March at an Indoor Triathlon at Lifetime Fitness to put some of their newly found skills to work before culminating the season in their first outdoor Sprint distance race. Many of the beginners go on to do Olympics and more. The Advanced Team concentrates on Olympics and Half-Distance Races and is comprised of about 20 members. The third team concentrates on half-distance and full-ironman races. It is comprised 75 athletes many of whom have completed 6+ Ironman races. Club Sponsors: MyTriGuys, LLC

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
