A very belated thank you for the BEST. CAMP. WEEK. EVER. Erin, Jane and Mack all enjoyed their first triathlon experience but, especially, the week of training and camaraderie. Each day they came home exhausted in that good way...the way only hard physical exertion can bring about. They were each so proud to cross your finish line. Jane refused to let her race number fade. By July 9th I had figured out where my thick Sharpie had disappeared to! By the end of summer there should be a reverse tattoo on her left arm. Of our 3, Jane is the most hesitant to open herself to competition. Thank you so much for boosting her confidence, tweaking her skills, and creating a friendly atmosphere so that she felt safe racing. Erin learned how training across disciplines can help her in her main sport (basketball) and has also dedicated herself to running cross-country as a freshman this fall. As for Mack - who the heck loves the transition zone?!?! Even knowing his need for order and timeliness, we never predicted that he would embrace the trani to the extent that he did. He told us he felt best about his riding but that his swimming improved and once he had his feet on the ground, he didn't mind the dead-leg sensation. In fact, he couldn't understand why his sisters complained about it. Clearly, a triathlete in the making! If not 3!
Thanks so much for a really great camp and experience for the kids. You are a real star as a coach and motivator. I am amazed at the length of the race these kids did! Unlike the usual 10 minute "kids fun" triathlons, you trained these young athletes to go out and work hard for 25 or 35 minutes of real effort!

After only the first class I could swear I saw improvement in my daughter. I have heard lots of positive feedback from the other parents as well.

Just want to let you know that our two kiddos (Ryan and Meghan) have absolutely LOVED their time with you & the other trainers so far. They are so excited and proud of what they learned and experienced. It's so cool to see their self-confidence grow and hear the amazement in their voices over their accomplishments.
Thanks, Pascale, this has been such an awesome experience for my son Nicholas Peloso. Thank you for such a well run camp.
Jonah and Anna are having a great time. They love this camp and look forward to it every year!
Thanks for your wonderful camp. It is really great to hear the car full of girls that I drive talking positively all about it on the way home...with a mandatory stop at Robeks!!

Thank u so much for teaching both my kids to ride their bikes. Matthew wanted to go on his bike as soon as we got home - we even rode around our street. They both were so proud to show their dad when he got home. Thank you.
Pascale, thank you for such a positive experience. Nicholas loves your camps.
Again, thank you for the outstanding spring break experience.
