The Austin Triathlon Training Programs

The Austin Triathlon is approaching and hopefully all will be ready for it. If you fall into the category of “not quite ready” or “need a little extra help,” then there are tons of options for you to get that extra boost, get into shape and meet lots of new people along the way. From free workouts to raising money for a worthy cause, we are sure that there is something for everyone wanting to participate. And if you want to get your co-workers in on the deal, then check out the new J&A Corporate Wellness Challenge!

Jack & Adam’s Bicycles – Free Core Class M, W 5:30-6:30PM, Free track/hill workout Tues 5:30PM, Free long run Sat 7:30AM, Free group ride Sun 8:30AM. All meet at the shop.
