No gimmicks, no holding deposits, no hidden fine print – we want to spread the love, fun, and passion for Triathlon with you!

As the largest triathlon community in Australia, Tri-Alliance is based in Melbourne’s Bayside region and currently trains over 200 triathletes weekly under the guidance of eight qualified and experienced coaches.

As part of the Tri-Alliance family, you’ll receive professional triathlon-specific coaching to improve your fitness and performance, train with like-minded athletes, all whilst enjoying the social side of training.

Our Try-the-Tri program encompasses all of the fundamentals of Triathlon Training including the following;

  • Swimming – we’ll sort out your technique, grow your confidence in the pool and open water, learn swim-specific drills and have you swimming laps in no time!
  • Cycling – learn how to mount and dismount, understand your gears, use cadence and heart rate zones, ride in a group.
  • Running – Develop correct technique, increase your aerobic fitness, understand cadence and gain confidence in your running no matter your fitness level or speed. Nobody gets left behind!
  • Transition – Nail the fundamentals of transition set up, T1 (water to bike) and T2 (bike to run)
  • Nutrition for Long Course  Learn about how to set the correct lead-up and race day nutrition plan for you.
  • Triathlon Slang – You’ll learn all the terms, phrases and general Triathlon jargon triathletes use. Did you score a negative split in your session? What the heck does T2 or T3 mean? All this and more you’ll find out!

Don’t be fooled into thinking you need to spend exuberant amounts of money to get started in Triathlon. In fact, starting out is the very opposite. At Tri-Alliance, all you’ll need is a positive attitude, and any type of bike – preferably one with two wheels and that’s safe to ride on!

  • Swimming – Goggles, cap, and swimmers (wetsuit too if you have one but our great partner at ORCA will provide you with a 20% discount if you need one).
  • Cycling – A helmet and bicycle of any make, model or design is fine! Don’t forget to bring along shoes to wear on the bike, too! (Our great partners at Giant/Liv Bikes are here to give you a hand with the right advice and 20% discount)
  • Running – Joggers and comfortable running gear (If you are in need for some new treads then Mizuno offer 20% to our Try the Tri athletes).

Tri-Alliance welcomes participants of all shapes and fitness levels. If you are doing a sprint event there is no prerequisite other than having a positive attitude and wanting to give triathlon training a go!
