C3s Andrew Beardsall & Kristen Marchant win Skechers Triathlon Ontario Indoor Championships
One of the largest fields to ever race an indoor triathlon in Canada participated in the Skechers Triathlon Ontario Indoor Championships at McMaster University. Each wave had 18 athletes who swam as far as they could swim in 15 minutes, followed by biking as hard as they could in 15min on supplied electronic wattage bikes and then ran as far as they could in 15minutes on the indoor 200m track. Marchant and Beardsall have both represented Canada at the ITU World Championships with both having previously winning a medal for Canada. The C3 team-mates were the day's fastest athletes and were recognized as the first Triathlon Ontario Champions of 2016. The day's oldest competitor was Juliett Anderton (77 years of age). Past Ironman Champion & 70.3 World Champion Bob Knuckey won the men's 60+ category to claim another provincial title. Race results for juniors and all age categories are listed below.

PB 2015/2016 Swim Team Season
Entering it’s 5th season we are excited to continue to build on the success of the swim team. Head Coach Sean Bechtel, one of Canada’s top Triathlon swimmers, looks to build on the program with new ideas and strategies that will lead to even better results. With options of 1-2 or 3 swims a week we can tailor the program to best fit your swimming needs.
It is believed that swimming more is not the only way to get faster. Swimming technique is overlooked by many coaches
in place of more miles because itis easier. With the right combination of technique work and moderate miles Personal Best believes we can achieve the same if not better results
Sean Bechtel took me from swimming in the middle of the pack to the front of pack! I literally took more than 20 sec per 100m off of my time in the two years I've been coached by him. Thank you Sean!
A position on the bike that works for your body is essential for comfort, and can be optimized for aerobic and aerodynamic performance, as well as injury prevention. At PB we utilize motion capture video to record and analyze your bike position and to extract various body angles . With this data in hand we utilize our experience, and compare against industry norms in a combined approach to refine your position. And since optimal bike fit is about more than just angles, we spend a lot of time working with you to incorporate information about your goals, your strengths and weaknesses, flexibility and biomechanical characteristics, and of course, how you ride. When completed, you'll have a riding position that maximizes your power and comfort.
Bike fitting is not only for when you purchase a new bike but also benefits a rider as we age and our body changes. So consider a fit every two to three years, whenever you change bikes, and especially if you are experiencing discomfort.

An often overlooked aspect of training is knowing how much effort is needed for certain intervals or workouts. As is often the case in all our busy lives we want to maximize our training time to be the most efficient we can. Having the right combination of easy and hard workouts is the best way to do this, however it is a lot harder to achieve the right efforts without the knowledge of your training zone. Personal Best uses a series of tests for cycling and running so we can accurately determine training zones. You can then measure your efforts and be certain you worked at an effort prescribed by the coach. We believe testing is the best way we can help you achieve your goals for each workout and inevitably your ultimate goal, whatever it may be.
