WHAT DO I NEED TO GET STARTED?
We start every season with indoor training, so you probably need less to start with than you think!
1. SWIM CAP, GOGGLES, & SWIMSUIT
LADIES: We highly suggest finding a swimsuit that will do well in lap swimming, like a simple one-piece suit. This way, you will not have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions while you practice!
GENTLEMEN: Avoid baggy swim trunks with too many pockets, as this will only cause resistance and drag.
2. WATER, WATER, WATER!
You will eventually need a road bike, but we start with training on stationary indoor bikes... We ALWAYS drink water while we are biking! On race day, the bike ride will be the best place to drink water, so we have to train our bodies to intake water while we train.
Make sure you are staying hydrated by always keeping a full water bottle with you.
3. RUNNING SHOES
Having good gear will only help you... but there is no need to go buy the "latest and greatest" gear to get started. Just make sure you have supportive shoes that you can train and run in.
WHAT WE PROVIDE...
ALL TEAM MEMBERS WILL RECEIVE AN OFFICIAL HSTRICLUB UNIFORM AND AN ORANGE HSTRICLUB PULL OVER
