About Experience Triathlon
Coaching – Training – Events
All Ages and Ability Levels Welcome!
“I’m telling you my friends this organization is top-notch. Any coaching team that can take 20 strangers, pull us all together based on our own individual capabilities and lead us all to a finish at IM Wisconsin this year is proof enough of their expertise, but the quality of the program is best represented by the relationships I built over my 1st season with coach Joe LoPresto and the ET Team!!!” – Sean C.
“One of the many unique things about this team and club is the comprehensive services they provide including coaching, performance testing, group or individual sessions/lessons (swim, bike, and run), CT, massage, mental skills, sports medical coverage, nutrition, training camps, affiliation with a top award winning bike shop, you name it. They leave no stone unturned from the beginner to the elite level athlete, and all those in-between. This comprehensive approach is really unrivaled in the Chicaoland area. Great job!” – Steven M.
