Join me LIVE for an indoor bike workout!

I understand that you may be experiencing stress from the change in your active lifestyle, current work/family situation and life uncertainty during this public health crisis. During these times, we must all stay positive and support one another. Most of all, we must continue to take care of our mental and physical health.
If you are in need of some social interaction, motivation and a quality workout, join me on Facebook on Saturday March 20th, 2020 at 8am EST for a 75-minute indoor bike workout. I will coach you through the entire workout (pump-up music included) and we will sweat, have fun, suffer and work hard together.

Trimarni Clermont Camp - Day 4

The time finally came. The last day of camp. Surprisingly, our campers were a bit giddy and full of energy. Over the past 4.5 days, we never had the TV on and had little discussion of what was going in the outside world. I feel this really helped with the moral of camp as everyone was positive and encouraging - and staying passionate and dedicated to their swim/bike/run workouts.

Our last day of camp started at the Clay trail around 8am. We specifically selected the trail for the Sunday run as we had planned for it to be the day after the race (softer surface = easier on the legs). But since we worked our campers pretty hard on Saturday, everyone enjoyed the run workout on the clay trail.







We gave the campers a specific run workout with varying speeds and it was awesome to see everyone supporting one another. We kept with an out and back segment on the trail so that we could all cheer for one another.


After a dynamic warm-up, we spent 30 minutes warming up (15 min EZ then 15 min good …

Trimarni Clermont Camp - Day 3

Our campers were able to sleep-in a bit (compared to waking up early for the race - which was cancelled) and the overall energy in the house was positive, uplifting and motivating. Everyone was excited to spend the morning outside, on another beautiful and warm day. Although our race was cancelled, life was not cancelled. One can never plan for the unexpected. Sometimes the best moments are the ones you don't plan for. Trust the magic of the unknown. 


Around 8:15am, we all caravanned to Waterfront Park (just as we did on Friday) and got ready for our long ride. For many of our campers, our planned 4-hour ride was the most they had ridden in a very long time - and for some, it was their longest ride ever! We feel that it's important to not only teach our campers good skills and provide a lot of education at our campers but also put our campers into situations that they may not be able to (or are afraid to) experience alone as we feel every athlete is capable of so much more th…
