Looking for a fun, energetic and supportive group of athletes
to train and enjoy life with? Look no further!
You have found your match with the IronEdge Tri Team.

What a difference a season makes! After three summers of training myself for Olympic distance triathlons, I decided to take the next step and start training with Heather and the IronEdge team. In one season, I had 3 PRs and have fallen in love with triathlon all over again. From swim analysis and drills to time trialing and nutrition, Heather has been able to improve all aspects of my race and training. In the IronEdge team, I found a group of positive people of all abilities who supported each other like family. If you want to take your training to the next level, give IronEdge a TRI.

The energy that day was off the charts and it was one of those days that reminds you of all the reasons you love doing triathlon.
