I completed five ironman triathlons and three ultra marathons by age 40. I studied my training regime, trained hard, appropriately, had great races and no injuries. Little did I realize the impact my 40s had on tendons! I was so tight everywhere that exercise really hurt. Physical therapy  doing all I could to get over the obstacles… but still hurt a lot. I ordered the Triathlon Injury Prevention Specialist to see if I could figure out my missing link. The stretches and strengthening workouts were very specific and hit the sore spots on me! It was also the first course I read where I could understand the biking information and how to become a stronger biker. This course answered some long overdue questions regarding training. At last… so many of the questions I once had were now answered! After ten months of not being able to run… I am running, PAIN FREE. I am ENJOYABLY biking… PAIN FREE. My swimming… so far, has never been a problem. 🙂  This course was very easy to follow, very easy to read, well put together, covered many topics I have not read before. I am SO happy to finally have things figured out and be on the road to training again!! 🙂  Great course—thanks! Bought some orthotics, started the strength/stretching recommendations… finally running strong again! Time to take on another ironman! Five stars!!!  Kristin Jorgensen, ACE Certified Professional

As a triathlete and personal trainer this course was immensely helpful. I not only learned how to update my own training plan, I also learned how to better help those starting out in the sport to compete safely and effectively. The Triathlon Injury Prevention Specialist course helped me gain insights in running, biking and swimming. Most clients that come in for training are looking to improve in one of those areas. Now i have more of a specific knowledge in all of those fields to better help them.  Zac Hersh, NASM Certified Professional

Even though I have been participating in Triathlons since 1991 and completed the Lake Placid Ironman in 2005, this course filled in the blanks in various areas of training concepts, specificity of muscle stretching and strengthening. I volunteer at an annual kids week long triathlon camp and this material will greatly enhance the support that I will be contributing to that camp! Great course and I am looking forward to taking more of these courses!
