About Team Training New England
Beginning in 2005, Team Training New England (TTNE) has been preparing and empowering women – from the novice to the more experienced athlete –to compete in sprint distance triathlons and other challenging events.
Team Training New England’s goal is to help everyone experience the benefits of incorporating fitness and training into their already busy and full lives. Setting goals, meeting and training with like-minded people for a specific event creates an incredible atmosphere of camaraderie and support. This experience is life-changing not only for the individual athlete, but for everyone in their lives!
We began as an informal group of 20 female friends and family members, TTNE has grown into a large network of like-minded athletes who have successfully completed at least one triathlon (many have gone on to do more). Once these athletes have been “bitten by the TRI bug” there is no stopping them. Feeling strong and fit is their motivation to keep working.
Due to consistent inquiries and the nature of our programming, we have decided to open our services to men. Our focus will continue to be on the beginner triathlon participant.
