Friday 90 min Swim Squad

Location: Keith Spry Pool

Session: 6:00 - 7:30 am

Fee: $15/session. Paid by full term.

Enquiries: Email jen@tractionfitness.co.nz or call 027 24 23 527

Description:

For keen triathletes and swimmers. This session is a key weekly session for anyone who takes their swimming seriously. If you are aiming for an Ironman event or improving your swim skills and performance adding a 90 min pool based swim is a no-brainer.

The session has a similar structure to other sessions with more time able to be spent on warming up/stroke mechanics and the size of the main swim set(s).

Winter Windtrainer Sessions

Location: Thorndon Squash and Tennis Club, 4 Katherine Ave, Thorndon

Time: 5:30 - 6:30 pm

Fee: $90/term (9 sessions)

Description:

Sessions are designed for triathletes - a focus on longer aerobic workout sets that are progressively built up over the 9 weeks.

In contrast, the classic gym based spin classics have short, explosive sets - great for a busy professional who wants a 45 min session but not tailored to the demands of the fitness required for triathlon.

Sat Tri Based Session

to Jul 6

Sat Tri Based Session

Location: Keith Spry Pool

Session: 7:30 - 10:00 am

Fee: $15/session

Enquiries: Email jen@tractionfitness.co.nz or call 027 24 23 527

Description:

1 hr swim set followed by either a 60-90 min windtrainer or longer aerobic run workout. These sessions vary based on the time of the year and the squad focus but will always start with a swim. The idea is to complete a safe ‘brick’ type triathlon session - warm and dry is perfect for winter months.

The session is great for new triathletes who need to build their skills and fitness for events later in the year and for athletes who have international events during our winter and need a good workout environment.

WairarapaWomens100

Join us on Saturday Sept 14th for the WairarapaWomens100. 

REGISTER https://www.tractionfitness.co.nz/ww100rego/

This is a international women’s riding day - there are events happening all over the world on this day. We are one of many that you can find through the Rapha Womens100 website. 

We have achieved our goal of 100 women riding 100 km and I know this wasn’t a fluke - how much can we smash it by? Come out and let’s give it a go, together.

We’re inviting all women cyclists and especially those who would like to set a high level challenge of making their 100k ride. We will provide what you require to complete your goal - a cool supportive group of female cyclists.

The course is undulating but not hilly. 

We’ll start, return and then return again to Martinborough – anything to get an extra coffee in! There are two loops in this ride – we’ll nail the bigger Gladstone 66 km first, then the Greytown loop which is 34 km.  

To ensure we keep you and your supporters happy along the way we’ll centre proceedings at The Village Café, 6 Kitchener St, Martinborough. If you want a cuppa and cake after the first loop just make yourself at home by popping in and saying hi to Bruce and his staff. They’ll fuel you up for the remainder of the ride. 

So this is how we’ll roll …. 
o 8:00 – 8:15 am: Those who are aiming for their first 100 k ride or know it’s going to be a big day out & they have a head start to help out
o 8:30 – 8:45: Those who think it’s still a long way but they will manage it with a bit of inspiration from their mates
o 9:15 am: Those who are confident they can finish 100 k without a coffee break
o I predict that everyone will be finished by 2 pm

What you need to know ….
o This is a fun, un-timed, un-marshalled ride on open roads and all riders are taking part at their own risk
o You will get plenty of correspondence prier to the day - a map, instructions & company. But note you will need to look after yourself in terms of following the course. We will put signs out but there will not be marshals. 
o You need to come prepared to fix your own punctures so bring a fix-it kit with 2 tubes and a pump. Please bring along a road-safe bike.
o Although you will be passing the café twice on the ride you should take food and drink with you (as well as your visa and coffee card!)

The Route …. 2 loops from The Village Café, Martinborough – 

o Loop 1, Gladstone Loop – travelling thru the village square & onto Oxford St – turn left at Todds Rd and follow the back route to Gladstone – left to Carters Line – to Ponatahi Rd & back into Martinborough & past the Village Café & around the town square ... then

o Loop 2, Greytown Loop – Along SH53 towards Featherston but continuing straight onto Bidswills-Cutting Rd and then right onto Fabians Rd – follow to the end and turn right towards Greytown - left just before the main road onto East St - right onto Hospital St - left onto the main st of Greytown and along the road for 50 m. Left onto Bidswills-Cutting Rd and returning along this road to Martinborough & the finish at The Village Café
