We will work together on training smarter and more efficiently. If you’re tired of being tired of being tired of training, then IPA Endurance might be the team for you.
Not for Everyone
The IPA Endurance team is expanding to like-minded, Master’s Athletes, community and humor based athletes. We work smart and efficiently. We laugh even harder. We are all for the athlete, and our community. We are about your self-confidence and translating that into your overall life. And we are confident that we can make you faster — and happier — IPA is a MASTERS ATHLETES program. We specialize in getting our team across the line at IM between 11:30 and 16:59. If you want to go under 11:00, we can give you recommendations as there are so many good coaches in town.
The IPA Tribe
Triathlon is an individual event. The journey into yourself and your limits is what makes it so special. But we know you will get faster with a tribe of other accountable, committed athletes. The group is what makes IPA roll as we are diverse, inclusive and caring towards each other.
Selecting a coach for Multi-sport is a very personal decision, and our approach won’t be a fit for everyone. If it isn’t working for you, we’ll help you find a program that fits. And, if you leave in the first 30 days, we’ll refund your money. It’s that simple.
We believe in what we are doing and know we can make you a faster, funnier, and happier athlete. Happy and well-trained athletes go faster.
