Getting started in Triathlon

Getting started in Triathlon

Do you want to start training for triathlons, but don’t know where to start? Maybe you lack the ability to swim…maybe you aren’t sure about how to ride a bike…maybe you’ve never even put all three disciplines together. Put all fears and doubts aside and follow our proven approach!

At Alamo 180, we encourage athletes to approach triathlon safely and conservatively.

First, it takes courage to start the journey! So celebrate taking the first step to an active lifestyle!

Second, lay the right foundation. Start with learning how to swim. Once you feel confident in the swim, sign up for the Rookie to Race beginner triathlon program. If you can already swim, then head straight to the Rookie to Race program.

At the completion of the Rookie to Race program, you’ve successfully laid the a solid foundation of skill and efficiency and are ready to build endurance. Pick the race distances you plan to do and progress patiently. You can’t rush success, so take your time as you enjoy training and racing.

For athletes that would like to achieve a Half Ironman, we recommend doing so within one year of completion of Rookie to Race. For the Full Ironman, we recommend doing so within two years of completion of the Rookie to Race program. Learn more about Rookie to Half Ironman and our Rookie to Ironman program.

We have successfully trained HUNDREDS of triathletes to the finish line of their goal race and we are confident we can do the same for you! If you’re ready to live your best and most active life through the sport of triahtlon, we are ready for you! Achieve more, together.
