Up your game

Pro triathletes have a distinct advantage: They often have access to a team of experts providing personalized advice on swim stroke, bike fit, training zones, running form and all the X-factors that get you to the line fitter and faster.

Now, for the cost of a pair of Zipps, that same level of expertise is available to the amateur triathlete at the University of Colorado Sports Medicine and Performance Center in Boulder, Colo. Late last year the center debuted an assessment package called Up Your Game that offers a chance to work with highly credentialed staff armed with state-of-the-art equipment under one roof. Triathletes can choose from one- to three-day packages that feature fitness testing, nutrition consultation, gait analysis, a Retül bike fit, saddle pressure mapping, SwimLabs stroke analysis and more through a multi-disciplinary team of sports scientists, physical therapists and athletic trainers.
