WHO CAN JOIN?

  • Anyone interested in a challenge
  • Beginners are welcome, however, a basic front crawl ability is required. 
  • You are strongly encouraged to have a 2024 Triathlon Alberta Membership for your insurance.  

DO I NEED TO BE A TRIATHLETE TO JOIN THE CLUB?

  • No.  Anyone can join and many people join just for fitness and/or community & social connection.
  • You are also welcome if you only want to swim and we have registration options available to you.  We practice all strokes in the Bios Club and although front crawl is our primary stroke, we are similar to a masters swim club that also likes to cycle and run!

WHAT ABOUT RUNNING & CYCLING WITH THIS CLUB? 

We are a swim club for the most part, however group members often self organize for Running & Cycling. 

INDOOR RUNNING

This Winter we are running a drop in run group at the Olympic Oval on some Sunday mornings.  The cost is $7 at the gate and is not included in this registration fee.  You do not need to be a part of the Swims to join this group.  The olympic oval turf is world class!    

WHAT DO I NEED TO JOIN THIS CLUB

  • Swim suit & goggles at minimum.  We prefer you to have swim paddles and fins as well.
  • A valid Triathlon Alberta membership provides you with insurance for all activities with us and we strongly encourage participants to have this.  A 2023 or 2024 ATA membership is available HERE.  If you do not purchase a Triathlon Alberta Membership, you will not be insured during your activities with Bios Triathlon Club.

WHAT GEAR WILL I NEED?

  • Swim gear including athletic swimsuit, fins, paddles, pull buoy, goggles and cap.  If you don’t have these items or need advice on what to get please contact us.  Or visit trihub.ca for swimming & cycling gear and a Tech Shop location for running shoes.

  • Swim training 1 or 2 x a week with the club. 
  • (1) short 3-5 minute swim film clip with stroke analysis commentary. 
  • Strokes development and drills in all strokes.  
  • Some swims will concentrate more on distance, while others include more stroke variety and sprints.     
  • Informal Group Running & Cycling - weather permitting
  • Perceived exertion scale of 1-10 to describe the intensity of workouts
  • We try to meet everyone where they are at in terms of fitness so that everyone has a challenge without feeling overwhelmed.

ABOUT BÍOS

The name Bíos is one of the two words the ancient Greeks had for life - Zoé and Bíos.  Bíos described the activities of life, while Zoé meant something more like organic life.  We chose to recapture the original meaning of Bíos, as the name that describes what we are most interested in accomplishing as a sports club: living a healthy lifestyle.  Therefore, at Bíos Triathlon Club we train not just for competition as an end-in-itself but also as a community, training for the benefits of a healthy, active life.  We are training for life!
