Group Triathlon Training

Spring is in the air which for triathletes means training begins! As a triathlon coach, my brain is in full planning and training mode.

With that being said, I am pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Group Triathlon Training program will be offered this spring at Prairie Life Fitness. Last year was very successful and there is quite a demand for group training. So for those in the Omaha area interested in training with a group, both myself and Stacy Houck will be doing a 12 week training program starting March 14th that will cater to the Omaha Women’s Sprint Triathlon. This is a great group for the novice triathlete, those trying to improve time, or for those that love training with others. The training will consist of everything to get an athlete ready for a USAT sanctioned sprint triathlon: group training, weekly homework, seminars about bike maintenance at Trek Bikes, gait analysis at Red Dirt Running Company, and of course some freebies and discounts from my sponsors. This training will be open to members and non-members of Prairie Life Fitness.

I am really excited to coach this group again and look forward to both the familiar faces and meeting new folks. The more the merrier. So get ready to dust of those bikes, loosen up the legs, hop back in the pool, and get ready for an awesome triathlon season. See you at the gym.

About Flatlander Tri Coaching

Welcome to my page. My name is Heather Dall and I am a Certified Triathlon Coach located in Omaha, NE. I work out of Prairie Life Fitness (132nd location) and provide triathlon coaching, knowledge, experience, and expertise to those looking to get into triathlons to the seasoned veteran looking to improve performance. Along with being a triathlon coach and athlete, I also manage a local Trek Bicycle Store. There is nothing better than being able to be in a passion industry and share my love of the sport. I am an endurance junkie who got into competitive racing back in 2000. I started off racing mountain bikes, taking the podium numerous times. Then the kids came along and I took some time off to raise the squirts. Back in 2009 my friend suckered me into a mini tri and really the rest is history. I have been doing triathlons ever since, usually about 4-6 triathlons per season-primarily Olympic and X-Terra, plus 10K races, off-road runs, charity bike rides, and the occasional bike race. My background prior to triathlons, is tennis. I grew up playing on the courts in Northern California with the goal to play in college. I did accomplish my goal and was a walk-on at Creighton University. Long story short, while working part-time at Prairie Life Fitness in 2008, I was asked to start a tennis program for youth and adults. I still run the program and coach tennis year round. And with my connections at my gym, I had the opportunity to co-teach a 12 week triathlon training program for about 20 ladies spring 2011. They primarily trained for the Omaha Women’s Tri with a few going on to race later in the season. The group was a huge success and is the main reason I studied to become a triathlon coach. I love helping people to achieve their goals, make new strides, and spread my wealth of knowledge on to other like-minded individuals. Along with coaching, I am a distributor for Juice+ For those looking to add more fruits and veggies to their diet and make smarter nutrition choices, check out my site: http://heatherdall.juiceplus.com/
