Triathlon Club

We TRI harder, together!


EN•DUR•ANCE (noun) the power to withstand pain or hardships; the ability or strength to continue despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions. 

Cross-training as a triathlete is a vigorous way to build endurance and strengthen all the muscle groups in your body. Swimming helps sculpt the upper body, cycling helps tone the lower body, and running helps develop lean muscles.

CAC’s Triathlon Club is for triathletes of all levels, provides a variety of group-specific training programs, and meets up to three days a week. In addition, the CAC Triathlon Club holds informational clinics, social events and group travel options for various races. As you train with our experienced and certified coaches, you will enhance your performance and build lasting relationships with group members.

Bonus Perk!
All Triathlon Club members receive 10% off Massage Services at LVAC and EAC!
See the customer service desk for details to redeem.

2015 CAC Triathlete
“I absolutely loved my experience with the CAC Tri Club last year. Not only did I complete the Transamerica Chicago Triathlon under my goal time, but I also met a group of amazing people that I hope to continue to be friends with for a long time”

Julie Feldman
2015 CAC Triathlete
“My experience as a member of the 2015 CAC triathlon club was incredible! Supportive coaches, challenging workouts, and relationships with my fellow athletes provided me an outstanding support system for my first ever triathlon! With the structure and knowledge provided by the coaches, I went from being too terrified of open water swimming and not even owning a bike to becoming a strong and prepared triathlete! Training with the Tri Club is the best way to get involved in the triathlon community, reach your goals, and have fun this summer!”

Mark Ahern
2015 CAC Triathlete
"Swimming used to give me anxiety. Never in my life did I think I'd find myself in a real swim practice...and like it!”
"The variety of run workouts and combination of swim and bike fitness brought my endurance to a level I never thought I'd see after college athletics."

Michael Pezzuto
2015 CAC Triathlete
“Eunate will make you a better swimmer, no question about it”
“Tri-club training not only gave me the courage to complete triathlons, but it was also one of the reasons I was able to shave 20 minutes off of my marathon time and qualify for Boston.”
“The comradery gained through Tri-club gives you the ability to test your limits and push yourself harder than you’d ever imagine.”
