About the Event

WELCOME SWIMMERS!

Thanks for your interest in Bíos Triathlon Club! (formerly the Mount Royal University Triathlon Club). This summer 2022 we are offering an exciting program for triathletes, swimming enthusiasts, and anyone who is interested in fitness as a lifestyle!  

Scroll down for membership cost, programming details or to select a program catagory and register!

WHO CAN JOIN?

  • Anyone 15 years or older
  • Participants need to be able to demonstrate a 100m continuous swim unassisted for safety.
  • Anyone interested in a challenge
  • Beginners are welcome, however, a basic front crawl ability is required.  Pleae note that part of the Tuesday morning swims are uncoached / unfacilitated, so swimmers attending Tuesday marnings will need to be able to follow along with a workout unassisted  (delivered via digital PDF & whiteboard on site). 

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 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.  An 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.

THE TYPE OF TRAINING AT A GLANCE

  • Swim Training for fitness & Training for triathlon (super sprint, sprint, standard or long distance)
  • Swim training 2 x a week with the club.  Tuesday mornings are technique focused with varied strokes & intensity and are partly uncoached due to noise requirments at that time of the day in the Silver Springs Community.
  • Thursday nights are facilitated sessions with music.    
  • Informal Group Running & Cycling - weather permitting
  • Track Cycling Clinic in the early spring at the Calgary Velodrome (April 24th, 2022)  - 9:30am
  • We use a perceived exertion scale of 1-10 to describe the intensity of workouts
  • We use a periodized training schema, peaking fitness in the spring.  Summer swimming is less structured and more technique and general all body fitness minded.  
  • 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!
