  • One of the great challenges to triathlon training is harmoniously employing various bones, muscles and connective tissues in one incredibly intense regimen. Enhance your client’s workout with techniques that keep them pain-free and moving toward their competitive goals. You’ll also discover tools to enhance performance including orthotics, heart-rate monitors and hydration suggestions.


    You will learn:

    • Basic understanding of joint movement and how it relates to cycling, swimming and running training
    • Why low back muscles can be the source of triathlete ailments ranging from sciatica to hip pain or burning in lower extremities
    • Performance benefits of orthotics and the importance of heart-rate monitors
    • Proper exercise to help prevent injury

    The course materials were sent on time and the format was easy to follow. This is my second CEC course purchased through GMP Fitness and I am impressed by the convenience, ease of use, as well as the manageability of the lesson plans, which were important features for someone with a busy schedule! Gina at GMP handled my customer service issues promptly and was incredibly helpful to me in getting my CECs completed on time so that my certification remained current. I would recommend GMP Fitness courses to any fitness professional seeking to add relevant information to their repertoire of knowledge and to also fulfill certifying requirements.

    Very thorough. Materials repeat but I guess that drums it in better. There's a lot of material to read and hours spent on it but I feel I have a great idea about what all is involved in preparing for such an event.

    Really good insights into triathlon training. The course covered many aspects in relation to endurance training in general, and specifically the art of triathlon training and racing. Nutrition, equipment selection, hydration, periodization of training, training drills, injury prevention...... all were covered within this course.

    I completed five ironman triathlons and three ultra marathons by age 40. I studied my training regime, trained hard, appropriately, had great races and no injuries. Little did I realize the impact my 40s had on tendons! I was so tight everywhere that exercise really hurt. Physical therapy - doing all I could to get over the obstacles… but still hurt a lot. I ordered the Triathlon Injury Prevention Specialist to see if I could figure out my missing link. The stretches and strengthening workouts were very specific and hit the sore spots on me! It was also the first course I read where I could understand the biking information and how to become a stronger biker. This course answered some long overdue questions regarding training. At last… so many of the questions I once had were now answered! After ten months of not being able to run… I am running, PAIN FREE. I am ENJOYABLY biking… PAIN FREE. My swimming… so far, has never been a problem. :) - This course was very easy to follow, very easy to read, well put together, covered many topics I have not read before. I am SO happy to finally have things figured out and be on the road to training again!! :) - Great course—thanks! Bought some orthotics, started the strength/stretching recommendations… finally running strong again! Time to take on another ironman!
