RTA's Triathlon Training Camps
...aka KYAH*
 
                

For those of you unsure about what KYAH is: (pronounced KAI-YA!) 

 

KYAH stands for Kick Your Ass Hard!!!  It is a multi day triathlon training camp held in a destination, which provides ample opportunity to swim, bike, and run.  KYAH provides a great opportunity to take your fitness level to new heights.  

The schedule provides for heavy volume training--all of which is coached and supervised by professional triathlon coaches.  Camp size is always limited to allow for a more intimate setting and to ensure plenty of one on one attention. You will come away from KYAH with a new sense of confidence in your racing and training potential.  

Depending on which KYAH you attend, the camp will include plenty of epic riding, monstrous climbing, distance running on the roads and on the trails, and open water swimming.  Each KYAH offers different challenges based upon it's location.  It is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

CAMPERS REFLECT ON KYAH....

    RTA Nation - just arrived home from an epic camp. I'll post a more detailed recap later in the week but I wanted to take a few moments to thanks Elizabeth and Chris for providing a fantastic training camp. Even with the harsh weather we put in 4+ days of good hard yet fun training and everyone who attended achieved a personal record along the way. For me it was a PR in the LP half marathon the day after riding 113 miles. To my other fellow campers please post a recap so all in the Nation can truly understand why these camps are a must attend. Lastly before I get in big trouble, thanks to my wife Nancy for the great support in the Kia Soul SAG Wagon!" -Eric K

    Well this was my first KYAH/KYWAS experience and it was just amazing.  I learned so much and also got to know some pretty inspiring people who push themselves everyday.  Going in I thought this was going to be over my head, but I surprised myself with what you can accomplish with the right people by your side.


      
    Elizabeth/Chris… you both are amazing people who are truly inspiring,  and Elizabeth back out on the road again showing us what your truly made of and reminding us to always reach into your back pocket for that little extra!!
     
    And Nancy, thank you for checking on my after my first screaming decent.. and I truly mean screaming :-)  I was totally shaking after that.. thanks
     
    Looking forward to seeing you all in Syracuse 70.3 and the in IMLP "

    Having now attended KYAH twice in the past 2 years, I can't agree more with Eric's accolades, including thanks to Nancy for her support!!



    With just two months of training this season after 5 months recovery from shoulder surgery, I swam the furthest distance ever! The camp provided an excellent transition from Olympic distance to Half IM all in the beautiful , though wet, LP environment. 

    Above all I got to know some fantastic, supportive people who just so happen to be my teammates. In such an individualized sport, it's so great to give and receive encouragement.

    Finally, no matter what her mother says, Elizabeth is an inspiration to us all, having pulled me up the 3 bears on her bike and still running a faster pace in the half marathon less than a week from a horrific bike crash. Chris, Eric, Ryan, and Tommy pulled me the rest of the way!

    These are the types of experiences that truly make us the RTA Nation!"

  • "BIG thanks goes to Chris and Elizabeth...for not only coaching us through a cloudy and rainy weekend, but more so dealing with 6 of their athletes who had wet, rain and sweat-soaked clothing hanging in the front room everyday. (I should also give credit to Wilson and Paige who had to endure this smell while sleeping). And thank you Elizabeth for making BOMB-ASS burritos that were not only healthy, but also ridiculously delicious! 

    The weekend was epic for all, and truly something not to be missed in the future! It not only gives us a chance to do what we all love, but also an opportunity to realize why we put in the countless hours and continue to train relentlessly, pushing ourselves to achieve more.

    It's an innate force which we all share that drives us to be the best we can possibly be everyday, with the encouragement and support of great coaches and awesome teammates. I think Wilson said it, but being a part of RTA Nation, you would never think you were competing in an individual sport.
    It was a fantastic weekend with many laughs, and great times!"  -Tommy N

  • "Thanks for another great KYAH. Based on the fact that I slept the entire plane ride home I think my A was particularly well K'ed." -John (KYAH Florida)

    Just wanted to say thank you again for an enjoyable few days at KYAH.

    Thought it took me to another level and brought me into the “real life” of tri athletes.

    I have really appreciated the “added” attention on the details of things … and hope that I kept up the quality level within the group.

    As always and never in question … the bonding times were for the memory book." 

    - Tim E (KYAH Florida)


  • "Thank you both again for putting together a great training weekend. I feel really prepared for Timberman both mentally and physically. Being able to have these focused weekends is a really huge benefit of training with you both. I realize that the timing, while perfect for me, was really hard for you both given where you both are in your recoveries, which makes your effort all the more appreciated." -John J (KYAH Lake Placid)

 

  • "Having just come back from 4 days of training camp, there are some valuable lessons I have learned... 10-There is no such thing as too much chamois cream 9-The only easy day was yesterday (thx - JJ for that quote!) 8-Suffering is more fun with friends 7- Swimming in a lake in the rain is awesome 6-You are not supposed to feel good running 8 miles off the bike after riding for 3+ hours; 6a - HEED + Hammer Gel + Endurolytes = a nutritional trinity 5- Old Roy may have been a cinematic genius ;) (inside joke) 4- 8-10% grade is really not a big deal to climb on your bike 3- Margaritas can be used as a substitute to clean one's hands in lieu of a wet-nap 2- It is possible to run 8 miles with your t-shirt on backwards without a degredation in run performance. 2a - It is possible to be so tired that you don't even care if your t-shirt is on backwards! 1- I have trained hard enough to finish Timberman on 2 feet!" -Steve Kass (KYAH Lake Placid)


    One Word... EPIC!
