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.
