Consultants by the SEA – Supporting Endurance Athletes
Endurance Athletes in Eastern Canada have a new place to turn to get help with their pursuits. Three local companies have joined forces in a collaboration they have named “Consultants by the SEA, Supporting Endurance Athletes”.
Fundy Sports and Tourism, Human Performance Centre and On the Run HELP Services have formed the collaboration with the mission “We provide experiences that enhance the quality of life for our clients through healthy endurance activity”. The collaboration is targeted to runners, multisport athletes, hikers, cross country skiers and others who pursue personal goals.
Garth and Helena Millar, Earle and Gina Burrows and Daryl and Ellen Steeves are the principles of this collaboration and collectively have over 150 years of experience working with endurance athletes. The key elements they bring to the table are sports travel, injury care and prevention as well as training and conditioning programs.
The collaboration has developed a calendar of activities that will be as simple as an evening orientation to a major race like the Boston Marathon or as exciting as a week-long training Camp at the National Training Centre in Clermont Florida. Consultants by the SEA will support individuals or groups from the beginning of their dream to be more active, through the planning and training, and onto participating in the event they have chosen all in a safe and healthy manner.
“We have all worked together on individual projects and immediately clicked, there is a shared passion that we all have for endurance sport” says Garth Millar of Fundy Sports and Tourism. “Garth is exactly right” agrees Gina Spear-Burrows “we all participate so we understand what the athletes are going through”. Both Daryl and Ellen Steeves chime in “but all at different levels, we are back of the pack for sure, but Gina and Earle know the view from the front and Garth and Helena are solid in the middle or better so we have it all covered”.
“Consultants by the SEA” are already at work with some upcoming projects like a guided trip to the Mooathon Marathon in Letterkenney, Ireland, a training camp in St Andrews to prepare for this summer’s triathlon and run , athlete assessment programs for injury prevention and VO2 Max testing as well as on-line training programs.

Training Session for The Hampton Ladies Triathlon/Duathlon
When: Sunday May 19 2013
Where: Hampton Community Pool, Hampton
What time: 10am – start
We are hosting an informal training morning in preparation for the Hampton Ladies Triathlon on June 09. The aim of the day is reassurance that YOU can complete our race and to talk through what happens in a Triathlon or a Duathlon and we are hoping to have Gina & Earle Burrows from the Human Performance Physio & Fitness Centre in Grand Bay and Tri Coach Daryl Steeves with us to help out with the group. We will walk you through a Triathlon including transition, clothing etc and then we will have an opporuntunity to ride the bike course and run the run course.
There will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have regarding a Triathlon.
Unfortunately the pool does not open until a week later so there will be no swimming, but we will discuss logistics and flow of transition. Your charge will include water, but please bring some food along.
Come ready to ride your bike and run as there may not be changing rooms available.
It will be a relaxed, no -pressure event. If you are interested please contact us on 506 214 1085 or e-mail me at email@example.com as we would like to have an idea of how many people to expect.
We will have to limit this session to the first 30 people to register with me.
I am happy to take names and then pay on the day.
