We joined the Aktiv Racing Team in the spring of 2012, through Trysport Niagara. The owners Barb and Wolf Guembel (professional triathlete) coached triathletes to take them to the next level of endurance, specific to triathlon racing. Nutrition, technique, speed and endurance in all disciplines (swim, bike, run) were all focused upon when gathering for workouts 6 out of 7 days of the week. Last year, Wolf and Barb coached a group of 15 athletes to complete the Mont Tremblant Ironman in Quebec, in August. For seven of us, it was our very first Ironman. We all completed it with flying colours!
Training through the winter months, only became more exciting by adding bike rides on cross bikes once a week, to compliment the indoor swim sessions and outdoor run workouts. They’ve also set up a summer and fall trail race series on the Niagara Escarpment, as well as two swim race series in the Welland Canal, to give athletes an opportunity to stay on top of their game throughout the year.
