FFT believes in a team-based approach to training and racing. Many seasons of coaching have shown us that when individuals come together to pursue a shared goal, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Just because swimming, cycling, and running don’t involve a ball, doesn’t mean that the concept of TEAM doesn’t apply. Not only is working out with a team more fun, but it is also more effective. When training with a group, our athletes report that their perceived effort is lower, despite training faster. Furthermore, group training increases opportunities for knowledge transfer between athletes and helps athletes hold themselves accountable. Knowing that someone is waiting for you at the track or the pool after a long day at the office or at school helps overcome the most difficult hurdle in training: just showing up to the workout.
Each team is organized slightly differently based on local factors and the needs and abilities of the group. Please contact the Head Coach of each team to inquire about details. FFT currently has the following programs in place, either by coaching the team as a whole or by coaching individual athletes on the team.
