Steelhead 70.3


Steelhead 70.3 Half Ironman Training

April 9  |  18 weeks

This program has been designed by Sharone Aharon, USAT Level III coach, to meet the training requirements of athletes at any ability level.

This training group is for you whether you are:

  • an individual focused on improving your form and technique to finish the race strong
  • a beginner or an intermediate athlete with some multisport experience, prepared to take your race day performance to the next level
  • an athlete with a long-term goal of completing a full Ironman

All participants receive an online training program, which details exactly what to do each day to reach your specific race day goal.  Participants will train with like-minded athletes twice per week, guided closely by Well-Fit’s USA Triathlon-certified coaches who will not only share knowledge but provide additional motivation.

Two classes each week will take place at the world-class Well-Fit Training Center, the Whitney Young Pool, the UIC Physical Education Building Pool, Northerly Island and Ohio Street Beach.  Dates and times are listed in the class registration section below.  The program includes a fully-support 56-mile group ride.

The program will be led by Coach Ted Ramos, who has years of experience helping athletes accomplish their goals at the half-Ironman distance. He will be assisted by other Well-Fit coaches and Elite Team athletes.
