Team MPI Offers Executive Triathlon Training Camp December 2-4 in Galveston, TX

Pensacola, FL – October 26, 2016 – MULTISPORT PERFORMANCE INSTITUTE (MPI) is offering a new multi-day triathlon camp December 2-4 in Galveston, Texas. The Executive Triathlon Training Camp is an intensive technique and strategy-focused weekend that will set athletes up for their best race season in 2017.

This camp was developed by Coach Mark Turner for the busy athlete who seeks to be smarter, stronger, and faster with the valuable and limited training time they have.

Included in the camp are swim video analysis, run form analysis, and an individual goal setting session. The coached bike ride will include information about self-talk, pacing, focus, nutrition, and hydration. The open water swim session will address techniques for managing anxiety as well as fundamental open water swim skills such as sighting, drafting, and efficient swimming. For the full schedule, go to teammpi.com.

Due to the individual and intensive emphasis of the camp, it will not exceed six athletes per coach.

Athletes need not bring a large base of fitness or experience, just readiness to swim, bike, run, and learn. Included in the camp is a free (but optional) registration into the Holiday Half Marathon & 5K (your choice) on Sunday morning, December 4th. It’s a great way to train, learn and then race in one weekend!

A participant at a prior Team MPI Long Course camp remarked, “Thanks to Team MPI and Coach Mark Turner for putting on the fantastic camp! As a first time Ironman 70.3 participant, the two-day workshop really helped to calm my nerves and prepare me mentally for the event. The individualized coaching and low athlete to coach ratio allowed for the personal coaching I needed. Nutrition and hydration support during the run and bike workshops were great as well. I feel this workshop was key to me completing the event and even beating my personal time goal.”

The camp is led by Team MPI’s Coach Mark Turner, of Seabrook, Texas. He is an IRONMAN Certified Coach, USAT Level I Certified Coach, USMS Level I & II Certified Coach, USAT Cat 3 Official, USAT Elite Rules Official, and serves on the coaching staff of Team RWB Austin Triathlon Camp. Coach MarkT is a regular contributor to the USAT Multi-Sport Lab Newsletter. He is a multiple IRONMAN, IRONMAN 70.3, and marathon finisher as well as a US Veteran who served with the United States Marine Corps. Coach MarkT can be reached at markt@teamMPI.com.

The Team MPI Executive Triathlon Training Camp welcomes athletes who recognize that work for greater racing achievements in 2017 begins now! For more information and to register, go to teammpi.com.

Summer Cook Wins ITU Tongyeong World Cup; Rudy von Berg 2nd at IRONMAN 70.3 Miami

admin Athlete News, Press Release

October 25th, 2016 (from http://www.endurancesportswire.com/summer-cook-wins-itu-tongyeong-world-cup-rudy-von-berg-2nd-at-ironman-70-3-miami/)

Cook won the Tongyeong World Cup in Korea on October 22, posting the fastest swim and run splits of the day. In September, Cook won her first WTS event in Edmonton with the fastest run of the event. Cook backed her Edmonton performance up with a second place finish in the Salinas World Cup with the second fastest run split. So far, she has won 4 races in 2016, with one race remaining on her calendar.

Of her most recent victory Cook remarked, “I’m thrilled to take my third ITU win of the season. I’ve taken many steps forward as an athlete this season and it’s been wonderful to see those steps reflected in my results. I’m looking forward to continuing to build upon those steps in my final race of the season in Miyazaki, Japan before resetting and refocusing for 2017.”

Cook was a standout varsity swimmer and runner at Villanova prior to entering the USAT Collegiate Recruitment program and becoming a professional triathlete in March of 2014.

Rudy von Berg, the USA Triathlon Collegiate National Champion (2014 and 2015) and American U23 Champion (2015), finished his race season with a 2nd place finish at IRONMAN 70.3 Miami. He closed with a 1:12 run split for the second race in a row, and at just 23 years of age, he is expected to be highly competitive in the seasons to come.

“I’m very happy to finish the season with another strong 70.3 finish after my 6th place in August at the IRONMAN 70.3 European Championships among one of the strongest fields of the year,” said von Berg. “My bike power is developing, and paired with a fast run that is becoming more consistent, I expect to be a very strong contender in 2017.”

While von Berg’s season is a wrap, the remaining professional triathletes managed by fortyninegroup will race this upcoming weekend:

  •       Timothy O’Donnell, Lauren Goss, Joe Maloy: Island House Invitational Triathlon
  •       Justin Metzler and Drew Scott: IRONMAN 70.3 Los Cabos
