Gossip plagued the running community when the marathon shamelessly took on both biking and swimming as spouses. Bask in the tri-pronged glow of a modern family with today's Groupon to The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers (a $150 value).
Expert triathlon coaches Scott Berlinger and Andrew Kalley coach racers on how to develop an effective triathlon training program during a half-day workout that's safe and informative for beginners and experienced athletes alike. The four-hour, half-day camp divides 30 pavement pounders into three groups, rotating them between swimming, biking, and running sessions. Coaches provide attention to individuals in a group setting while professing and demonstrating race preparation, transition improvement, injury prevention, and how to intimidate competitors using nothing more than a clown nose and a children's picture book. Go online to register for a half-day camp that suits your schedule; additional classes may be added as needed.
- The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers is a playground for adults. I moved to the city two years ago and never imagined that I’d find a place in New York City with so much to offer. When I’m at the Sports Center, it’s easy to forget that I’m even in the city. – Patricia C., Insider Pages
- ...this is definitely a full-service athletic facility. Also, the staff is friendly and helpful, and it never gets overcrowded, even during peak work out times. – 26171, Citysearch
