2021 Sansego Women’s Program Overview
This program will focus on women’s specific needs and offer individual and unique training plans. Women over age 40 is the fastest growing segment of triathlon. As you get older, your body starts changing, bone density and muscle mass start to decrease. Women can store fat more easily and every woman eventually goes through menopause bringing its own special kind of emotional challenges. As you age, aches and pains increase and flexibility tends to decrease. Your dietary needs change and ”fuel “for your training and racing tends to change. In addition, the need for recovery becomes ever more important. Many women in their 40’s find themselves juggling family responsibilities along with a being a professional in the work force.
2020 has brought the added stress of COVID-19, working from home or home schooling as the case may be. It is often at this stage of life that women tend to lose some self-esteem and look to the sport of triathlon fill a gap in their lives. This program will provide a training plan tailored to the individual female athlete that is built around available training time, goals, stresses, diet, and mental and physical well-being to help you reach your goals.
The program is available to a small number of women. Our focus is on the quality, personal time and feedback that you will receive from your coach. Just a few of the amenities included are a monthly zoom meeting with “Crowie” Craig Alexander, 5 x IM World Champion and Women’s Coach 22 x IM finisher Pam Kallio along with other “specialists” in the industry. Each athlete will have a biweekly one on one call with Craig Alexander and Pam where you can get your personal questions answered by Craig and Pam, and another biweekly call with Pam to follow up on any training and racing issues that you may have.
Who Should Apply?
Any female athlete that wants to improve and get to that next level should apply. If your racing performance is not a good indicator of your training and you are in your 40s or above, this program is for you. Our coaching and mentoring take into account your life stresses and will help you both mentally and physically to perform at your best in life and on the racecourse.
If you are female and want to get to that next level that you know you are capable of, we can help you achieve your goals. We take the mental and physical aspects into account into your training plan along with the importance of recovery and home/life/work stresses. No matter your goals or ability we can help you get to that next level you strive for.
About your coach
Pam’s bio can be found here, https://www.sansego.co/the-team/pam-kallio/ however, here are a few additional insights as to why she is an excellent coach for women. Pam did not learn to swim till age 47 and did her first ½ IM and full IM at age 47. Having had several coaches along her racing career as she aged into her 50s, she found time after time that younger male coaches could not relate to female emotions and especially the physiological changes accompanying aging and endurance training and racing. From her own experience of 20 years in the sport she has developed a balanced approach which is unique and an individualized method of coaching that will challenge you to give your best whether in sport or life.
Benefits beyond measure
In addition to the measurable benefits of having a coach that can relate to “your” specific issues you will be part of a like-minded group of women that want to excel in sport in addition to having jobs, families and other responsibilities and commitments. Networking with other similarly focused and driven athletes will give you a sense of “belonging”. Seeing teammates in the Sansego race kit at races is invigorating and motivating and can spur you on to dig a little deeper getting to the finish line. Knowing that there are others in a life situation similar to yours allows you to feel that its “ok” to spend that necessary time training. Your self-esteem and self-worth that we all need gets validated as you strive to become the best athlete you can become and in doing so also the best person you can be “sans ego”.
