The IPA Endurance Athlete
Someone who wants to complete, finish and get faster at the any multi-sport distance without leaving a trail of disaster at home, in their workplace, in their head and ultimately their body. We will work together on training smarter and more efficiently. That means no more 8 hour slogs just so you can say you rode the distance. 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, hard working, community and humor based athletes. We work very, very hard. We laugh even harder. Are you starting to pick up what we’re putting down? We are all for the athlete, but rage against selfishness. We are about your self confidence but could care less about your ego. And we are confident that we can make you faster — and happier — as you come out to play on arguably the toughest playground in endurance sports.
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, serious athletes. And with the additional support of your family and friends who share your journey (and inevitable obsession).
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.
