San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2012
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training (TNT), the Bay Area’s largest endurance sports training and charity program, is hosting free preview workouts for the next two weeks. Anyone interested in joining TNT can workout with the team without any commitments.
“We want to allow people who are on the fence about joining an opportunity to see how awesome our teams and staff are,” said Heather Pace of LLS. “This is a great way for people to get their own taste of TNT without having to make a commitment.”
TNT offers training for marathons, half-marathons, triathlons, hiking and cycling. The workouts will be held at different times and locations throughout the Greater San Francisco Bay Area depending on the sport. Each sport has their own specific workouts, so people can try multiple training sessions to see what sport is right for them.
Dates and locations for the free TNT workouts can be found at http://www.teamintraining.org/sf/firsttimehere/info.
Plenty of TNT staff will be available during the workouts to answer any questions about the program. Every team has at least one coach and assistant coach as well as training captains, web captains, community captains, mission captains and fundraising captains to help you along the way. Teams are even divided into small groups that led by trained mentors.
Team In Training has a program for athletes of all skill levels. For more information, visit teamintraining.org/sf or call 800.78.TRAIN to talk to a local Team Manager.
About Team In Training
Team In Training (TNT) San Francisco chapter offers marathon training, half-marathon training, and triathlon training. Individuals can also train for cycling events and adventure hikes. TNT began in 1988, when Bruce Cleland of Rye, NY formed a team that raised funds and trained to run the New York City Marathon in honor of Cleland's daughter Georgia, a leukemia survivor.
The team of 38 runners raised $322,000 for LLS's Westchester/Hudson Valley Chapter. Because of the pioneering efforts of Cleland and the Westchester/Hudson Valley Chapter, Team In Training was born and has grown into the world's largest endurance sports training program. Cleland was honored by Runner's World magazine in 2004 as one of their "Heroes of Running" for his role in establishing TNT.
Whether participants choose The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's traditional Team In Training program or TNT Flex, a flexible, customized online training option developed by TNT's renowned coaches, they get all the support they need to cross the finish line at the marathon, half marathon, triathlon, century ride and hike adventure of their choice. Both offer a choice of world-class events, travel arrangements to an exciting destination, and a fabulous, activity-filled weekend once they're there.
