Well-Fit Elite Program

Well-Fit Elite Program

Looking for fast times in your next triathlon? Great. Just searching for others who share your passion for training and racing? Even better.

The Well-Fit Elite Program is now accepting applications for the 2018 season. If you are a high-performing athlete looking to train with other advanced level athletes to help you break through plateaus and improve your race results, then the Well-Fit Elite Program is for you. The team will train together from February to September of 2018 with regular weekly swims, bike, and run workouts.

The growth of triathlon has led to an abundance of training programs for the amateur athlete, but group training options are few and far between for top athletes. This is where the concept of the Well-Fit Elite team was born.

Sharone Aharon, an internationally-known coach of world-class triathletes and the founder of Well-Fit Triathlon and Training, serves as head coach of the Well-Fit Elite Team.  Coach Sharone recently served as an assistant coach with the USA Triathlon National team, where he experienced the value of the team concept first hand.
