Here is a ‘Testimonial from Squad Member – Linda Gaspirini Being a new member this year I found the whole Geelong Triathlon Coaching / Endurance Team Triathlon Club experience to be most enjoyable, and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the club to any potential new members, from the training sessions and to the laughs, I know my experience and that of my other recruits has been 100%.
I would highly recommend the Endurance Team Triathlon Club for a number of reasons:
- You will receive invaluable advice by a professional and friendly coach
- It’s a great way to keep yourself motivated and keep on track towards reaching your goals, whether it be completing your first triathlon or improving your time from last year
- The clinic provides an opportunity to meet a group of great people that share similar interests (who won’t call you crazy for getting up early on a Saturday morning for a light 2 hour training session).
I commenced with the Team in November 2011, after a fellow team member suggested I join to overcome my fear of swimming in the deep big ocean (I think I watched Jaws too many times) and have a go at the Active Feet Triathlons…well let me tell you I have come a long way. My coach, Lyndal Dew, always kept me on track, providing valuable advice and little techniques which greatly improved my swimming experience one which I don’t fear anymore, but maybe my competitors do (LOL). Lyndal’s experience, positive attitude to the sport and her role as a coach provided us all with a sense of calmness amongst the group. Nothing was ever an issue and she would install confidence ‘that you can do it’ and would re-assure us all that we were improving.
I believe from joining the Team I achieved great results in the Active Feet triathlon series, so next season I would like to tackle the longer distances and with the experience and advice from my coach, the wonderful team morale, my enthusiasm and positive attitude I feel I can do it!
Thanks for everything Endurance Team!
