EFT East Fife Tri Club Winter Training Sessions - Feb / Mar / Apr

02 Apr 2019 - 04 Apr 2019

Organiser's Description

Welcome to East Fife Tri’s Winter Training Sessions

These sessions are ideal off-season training led by EFT coaches to help you maintain your fitness and improve your technique over the winter months.

For Winter 18-19 we will be continuing our regular Thursday spin session, our swim improvers session and our Tuesday S&C session.

You must be a member of East Fife Triathlon Club to take part in this block.  Club membership fees start at £20. Please sign up at https://www.entrycentral.com/EFTC  


Spin Sessions:

These are aimed at improving your bike fitness over the colder months or get some strength in those legs before tri season 2019.

Training will be focussed on helping you build your fitness and strength, develop your pedalling technique and get you used to riding in the all-important aero position.

We use the spin bikes available to us at the East Sands Leisure Centre however if you would prefer to bring your own bike and turbo please do - just ensure you also bring a mat to set it on.


Thursday Spin

Dates:  Thursday 14th February - Thursday 4th April (inclusive).

Cost: £32 (8 sessions) if you book the whole block on Entry Central.

Time:  Class starts at 1945 but please arrive at 1930 for set-up.

Venue: East Sands Leisure Centre, St Andrews. 

Remember: Bring a towel and fluids.


Swim Sessions:

This training is aimed at developing correct technique and helping you overcome any swim related anxieties.  

If the swim section of triathlon is your weakest link or if you are returning to swimming after a period away these sessions will help get you back on track.  Each of the sessions can also be adapted to the individual as we work in small groups which allows more different swimmers to develop their swim speed and fitness with others at the same level. 

This is an improvers swimming block, so you must already be able to swim at least 25m without stopping to take part in this block.  Any stroke will do. 


Thursday Swim

Dates:  Thursday 14th February - Thursday 4th April (inclusive).

Cost: £32 (8 sessions) if you book the whole block on Entry Central.

Time:  Class starts at 21:00 but please arrive poolside at 20:55.

Venue: East Sands Leisure Centre, St Andrews. 

Remember: Bring swimming kit and pool toys if you have them (pull buoy, flippers, float, hand paddles) but the club has some to lend out too.


S&C Sessions:

The 6 week block will focus on weights so that participants can get a good grounding, both in form and strength and thereafter pattern of weights, mats, weights, functional.

Sessions IDEAL for beginners as will be teaching form and technique in friendly and non-intimidating environment. You won’t be loaded with more than you can cope with.

Programme will give knowledge and confidence so that you can go to your gym and use weights unsupervised.

Also suitable for experienced members - as a check up on form is never a bad idea, and the programme will be adaptable for those needing less instruction.

Ladies – do not be fearful of bulking up, that is not the goal and nor will it be the outcome!

Open to all members 18 and over – no upper age limit. Older members do not be fearful – in fact it would be even more beneficial for prevention of osteoporosis (particularly amongst women)

Reasons for participation for triathletes include injury prevention, stabilising imbalances and weaknesses, aiding correct running, cycling and swimming form. Great for fat loss!

It is recommended that participants attend all of the first 6 weeks sessions, but not essential
