Over the past few weeks, Team RTA has been very busy training and racing. Our coached athletes and club members alike, have continued to kick butt and add to their list of multisport accomplishments… while having loads of fun along the way.
There have been countless first time finishers at various distances, TONS of new PR’s and several podium performances.
As professional triathlon coaches one of the most satisfying aspects of our job is helping our athletes and Team RTA club members achieve their goals and realize their dreams.
Whether their goal(s) is to simply lead a healthier life style, finish their first race, take on a longer distance event, podium, go to the national or world championship or become a USAT All American… anything is possible with this group!
Each athlete is unique and has to deal with their own set of obstacles along the way to their finish line. It’s the journey that makes the experience truly special.
Whether our athletes are looking to podium or are just trying to finish, the common characteristics of hard work, dedication and perseverance bond the members of RTA. This bond helps to create a COMMUNITY and SUPPORT SYSTEM of dedicated athletes making each individual’s journey MORE FUN and the finish line MORE GRATIFYING.
