Next Event January 2017



PhysioMed Women's Triathlon & Duathlon

**The event will not be taking place in 2016**

Unfortunately the PhysioMed Women's Triathlon & Duathlon will not be taking place in 2016. 

We are working on a new look PhysioMed Women's event which will be held in January 2017.   The details will be put up on this site by March 2016.

The original women's event took place 22 years ago and so many women have had the pleasure of taking place in the series and individual events. For many this was the start of a fantastic journey of events.  I am humbled and delighted that we were part of this journey.

Everything changes and it is time for some changes with the Triathlon and Duathlon.

There are some great events in and around Christchurch. I will add to these as I get the information.  Calender also on Barb Millar Training website

Barb Millar Training

Over my many years of  taking part in triathlon and organising events I have gained a wealth of knowledge of what works and what doesn't work.  The PhysioMed Women's Tri organising was a direct result me wanting to show women that regardless of ability or fitness they can enter and complete a triathlon or duathlon.  It is not about being fast, super fit, or in perfect (whatever perfect is!) shape. 

Since the beginning of the PhysioMed we have run many training groups, seminars and training sessions.  The training groups have become an integral part of my goal in helping women to become and stay active, enjoy the outdoors and understand that anyone can take on the challenge of events so as part of this mission I became a qualified personal trainer (REP's Registered Fitness Professional)

It has been a fantastic journey and now we have a fabulous group of women, fondly known as the "Cupcakes" meeting each week for all or any of the group training of swimming, biking, mountain biking, running & walking.

It continues to be mine and the groups mission to encourage more women to join us making training & events part of your life.  My drive is to show you that exercise and training does not need to consume your life, it should be part of your life. 

So if this sounds interesting come along and join in the fun with us, there is nothing more motivating than a group to exercise with, support you to tackle what you think is impossible, chat to, drink coffee with.   

Our aim for these groups is to create a supportive training environment for woman at any fitness level.  Do not stay away because you think you are not fit enough.  We all start somewhere and the culture of all our groups is to support and encourage each other.  Each group has beginners groups.  We split into groups depending on your fitness and ability. 
Have a browse through the Barb Millar Training website and come along and join in the fun.  You will also find us on face book as Barb Millar Training 

There is also a regular newsletter for both PhysioMed Tri and Barb Millar Training.

Individual coaching & one on one sessions
If training and events are a whole new world to you there is so much advice and information available that will literally make your head ache!!  Barb Millar has more years of experience that she is willing to admit and can take the confusion away. Your journey should be fun and challenging at the same time., it should be and can be part of your life - not controlling your life, it needs to fit in around your current commitments, family and work life.  Barb Millar is a REP's registered Fitness Professional and long time triathlon, running, cycling and swimming coach.

Same applies if you have been training and taken part in events and now want to achieve more,  there are some mistakes you just don't need to make and the hundreds of articles, advice and reports available will give you conflicting advice which will add to your  confusion.  Having a coach is not just for the professionals or fast, fit athletes. Be smart with your training time and enjoy your achievements.

If you are wanting some individual coaching, guidance, technique, nutritional advice etc then contact Barb through Barb Millar Training or call on 027 271 9721
