After losing interest in competitive swimming, my daughter Kya was excited to join Kronos and learn to bike & run, while using (and building on) her swim background. Kya has progressed through Kids of Steel, Youth Development and is now a Performance athlete with the club. For Kya, the high caliber coaching has made a huge impact in her skills and abilities as an athlete. She enjoys the variety and never gets bored. Kronos has opened up opportunities to compete at the Alberta Summer games, and Kya is looking forward to more high level races in the future!
I am the father of two Kronos athletes, and recently joined the sport after watching from the stands for several years. As a novice swimmer with no running or cycling background, I was very hesitant about joining. The coaches and other athletes were welcoming and have really worked to bring along my skills and fitness level. I really enjoy the convenience of training at the same time as my kids, and the opportunities to travel and race as a family. I’m looking forward to competing in my 2nd Ironman 70.3 Calgary event next year, all thanks to Kronos!
Our son Damian joined Kronos club in 2014 and our experience with the club has been phenomenal. Damian has achieved great results just after one year of training getting his podium places in 2015. If you are looking for a program that teaches proper techniques and endurance, this is the place for your kids. Kronos provides an excellent level of training, knowledge and support for your children. We cannot say enough about our son’s newly discovered level of discipline, hard work and perseverance that he has been demonstrating since joining the club. He loves the variety of training in a great team atmosphere. All Kronos coaches have positive attitude and knowledge of the sport which inspires confidence and success in future triathletes. Whether you or your children are new to the sport or looking for the additional boost, Kronos will provide you with the training necessary to accomplish all of your goals!
My daughter is involved full time in another sport, so the flex program works great for her. We have seen a remarkable improvement in her fitness level since joining Kronos. She’s faster and has much more endurance! She really enjoys the social aspect of the club and has met several of her best friends while training with Kronos!
We joined Kronos Triathlon Club in September of 2015. My then 11 year old daughter was looking for a new competitive challenge. Our first involvement with the club was handled by Lisa Mensink and she proved to be the start of a communicative and supportive training environment. We have had many experiences with competitive sport clubs and Kronos is one of the friendliest and most accommodating. The coach my daughter has spent the most time with is Kyle. We feel Kyle is an excellent coach. He asks that the kids perform to the best of their abilities but is understanding of their limitations, both physical and scheduling. Kyle is a very positive coach and is always looking for training tools, opportunities and events to strengthen the kids and the Kronos club. We have met many great families through the club and my daughter has some new friends who understand her lifestyle choices of sport and commitment.When asked, my daughter says the best thing about training with Kronos is that the coaches and athletes are kind.We look forward to being part of Kronos in the future and seeing our daughter improve in not only her physical, but mental and social development.
Every year I get faster, stronger and more confident in each discipline and this 100% due to the amazing training atmosphere with athletes of all abilities and ages that provide supportive an motivating atmosphere in which to train and talented and experienced coaches. In the 5 years I have been in the Masters Performance Program I have gone from beginner triathlete to World Age Group Qualifier. Thanks KRONOS I couldn’t have done it without you!!!!
