If you’re considering attempting an Atlanta triathlon, make sure you’re ready for the grueling battle. Even though it’s more about finishing, and doing your personal best, you still want to perform as well as possible and that takes training. There are a number of options to get that training, but the best is with a personal trainer that specializes in competition training, such as the Tough Mudder, Spartan Race and Battlefrog. These trainers know how to help you achieve your best time if you’ve competed previously and how to ensure you finish the race if you haven’t.
While normal workouts will help you get fit, training for a triathlon takes more.
You may be fitter than you’ve ever been and now looking to use that fitness to prove you can compete with the best. However, triathlons, like the Spartan race involve more than just functional fitness. They require a higher level of physical fitness and mental toughness to make it through. They’re all about the challenge and getting back in touch with your body. With the Tough Mudder, teamwork is added into the mix.
These types of races are for anyone, not just runners.
You may not be the best runner and maybe even hate running a bit, but that’s not what these races are about. They’re a variety of challenges with obstacles along the way. The monkey bars will challenge your upper body strength, while crawling through the mud under a barbed wire fence makes your whole body work in ways it hasn’t since before you first walked and brings a tinge of terror to the workout to test your nettle.
Each type of obstacle has different training needs.
Personal trainers know the different challenges of each type of triathlon or obstacle race. They know how to provide training that will help you master each one. Your training may start with something as simple as running up hill, but it will definitely get harder and more specific from there. Don’t worry if you’re not the best at all of them, it’s more about making it through each one that counts. You’ll find at least one or two where you really excel and those will help you make up for any lost time on others.
People often look to triathlons and challenges to break the monotony of regular training. It turns the goal from building endurance to a more concrete on of finishing the race, such as the honor of receiving the band, shirt or metal that says you did.
When you work with a personal trainer that specializes in training for these types of races, you’ll also get a healthy eating plan specifically for your needs. It even includes foods to eat the day of the race.
While getting fit should be about wanted to be your best and feel your best, there’s nothing wrong with getting bragging rights from finishing these tough competitions.
Personal trainers will remind you consistently through training that you have to keep going. The day of the race, when you’re tired and in a tough spot, you’ll hear them in your mind telling you to keep going.

TRIATHLON TRAINING yields 1st Place at Kiawah Island Olympic Tri (1km swim/40k bike/10k run)
While working with Midtown Trainers for the past 12 months, Tate has achieved amazing results through our CardioActive program. These customized workouts gave him an unprecedented weight-loss, and improved endurance. While working on his strength-training and weight-loss, we were simultaneously able to coach him with our Triathlon training program. Additionally, Tate still follows our nutritional program and took 1st place in a Olympic distance triathlon.* Congrats Tate! Your progress is motivating to everyone around you!
I definitely recommend Trey if you want to change your life.
Finding the right personal trainer who really cares about your goals is hard, especially when you want to achieve them in a short period of time. Trey proved me the opposite! Trey, I love your energy that keeps me going when I want to give up, your good advice when I don’t know what I am doing, and your strength when I lost mine!
Don’t waste your time, effort and money somewhere else where it’s all about money and not personal, this is the real personal training where you feel like the only client!*

ARE YOU CONSIDERING HIRING A TRAINER?
Trey is not your typical trainer. You can tell immediately he’s not just a “human counter” or someone concerning with just making money. He truly cares about assisting you in reaching your goals. In the process, he’ll motivate you, push you to do more, and make you give more than you thought you had to give. It’s hard work, no question. In the three months of working out with Trey, I have learned how to effectively workout, how to use the gym’s equipment, and how to eat healthily.*
Trey has helped me curb my diet, my daily routine, and implement a great daily workout that has really changed my overall physique and boosted my confidence.
The studio also offers services like massages and ready to go meals. He really likes to figure out what your goals are and to help you achieve them. Once you meet Trey, you will instantly see his passion for this. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.*

ARE YOU STILL TRYING A DIY WORKOUT PLAN?
Working out on my own was difficult and confusing, but after three months of training with our Midtown Trainers Trey and Ray, only two to three times a week and following their nutrition guides, I’m getting the results that I never got trying to do it myself!*
Very impressive results in such a short-time! Congrats James – you made a new level of commitment!
Ongoing knee pain sidelined me for almost a year because I was afraid to cause more pain and make matters worse. With a focused workout plan, Midtown Trainers coached me back to health, toned my legs, strengthened my knees and helped me drop 5 dress sizes! It was far superior to the other weight loss programs out there in that Midtown Trainers helped me become a healthy person, not just a person who lost weight.*
