WE ARE TRIATHLETES!
Welcome to the 2017 Mercer Island Triathlon Team!
MI Athletic Club is the brick and mortar home to the Mercer Island Triathlon Team. Cross training, indoor cycling, functional strength and mobility classes can all be found at MIAC. State of the art treadmills, step mills, free weights and TRX are available. Additionally, massage therapy, physical therapy and bike fit services can all be scheduled at MIAC.
It is a blessing to live in such a beautiful part of the country, but it is also a challenge when it comes to training outdoors. As such, we have a seasonal approach to our team. This will help to fine-tune and sharpen your attention while we are training, minimize burn-out risk, and allow for a defined off-season. Really a win-win!
Our training season launches the week of February 27th through the end of July.
