Desire, determination and discipline are the three components of D3 Multisport, Inc.. Our
coaching philosophy is dedicated to helping you get the most out of your training time. Our club is unique in that our athletes are located around the country (and the world!), but on race day, we bring athletes together! Local to Colorado, you’ll find D3 athletes at most races. With this energy comes an opportunity to gather under the D3 tent for pre & post race fun and support! Around the country, D3 athletes can be found at a variety of regional and local-to the-area races. We manage a race calendar for athletes who are coached 1:1, or who purchase a customized training plan. This calendar allows us to make pre-race e-mail introductions so athletes can meet up, or share on course camaraderie!
D3 Multisport’s head coach, Mike Ricci, is a USAT Level III (one of only 20 in the country) certified coach and the USAT National Coach of the Year. Mike and the highly qualified coaches of D3 share a passion and deep appreciation for the sport. They help athletes race their first triathlon, compete at new distances, or qualify for Kona. You can trust that your training will get you results. Our services include 1:1 coaching, customized training plans or pre-built training plans.

Not for Everyone – The IPA Endurance team is limited to like-minded, hard working, community and humor based athletes. We work very, very hard. We laugh even harder. Are you starting to pick up what we’re putting down? We are all for the athlete, but rage against selfishness. We are about your self confidence but could care less about your ego. And we are confident that we can make you faster — and happier — as you come out to play on arguably the toughest playground in endurance sports.
The IPA Tribe – Triathlon is an individual event. The journey into yourself and your limits is what makes it so special. But we know you will get faster with a tribe of other accountable, serious athletes. And with the additional support of your family and friends who share your journey (and inevitable obsession). We have events for them, as well, to help through the days and nights of preoccupation with calories and watts and whether or not that outfit is see-through when wet.
Our Guarantee – Selecting a coach for Multi-sport is a very personal decision, and our approach won’t be a fit for everyone. If it isn’t working for you, we’ll help you find a program that fits. And, if you leave in the first 30 days, we’ll refund your money. It’s that simple.
We believe in what we are doing and know we can make you a faster, funnier and happier athlete. Happy and well trained athletes go faster.

Colorado School of Mines Triathlon Club, Golden
Grand Valley Triathlon Club, Grand Junction
Attivo Multisport was created after many years of personal and team coaching, experimenting with ideas and trying different methods until the right formula was created. We make sure we are the right fit for our members, and they are the right fit for us, so everyone ends up successful in the end! Our high caliber coaches have both the professional knowledge as well as years of personal experience to confidently teach and coach members to be as successful as they can be.
Our coaching philosophy is that even though everyone is an individual in their abilities and in their goals, it doesn’t mean they can’t train together! Triathlon may be an individual sport, but it doesn’t mean you have to train hours and hours alone. Our hope is you make some friends and training parters along the way, who will motivate, challenge and support you.
Attivo Multisport is based in Lakewood, CO and offer two teams; the Novice/Short Course Team and the Intermediate/Long Course Team, allowing athletes of all abilities to train with us. We understand that training for your first Sprint triathlon is going to be a different approach than those training for a 70.3 or 140.6, so we have created two different teams to allow every member to get the coaching that they need, making friends and training partners along the way!

Team CWW Triathlon, Littleton
Based on the concept that the mid-aged homemaker of the ’90’s was not going to dip into the family coffers for money for herself, Team CWW was founded in 1997 with a not for profit philosophy. And so it remains, however the name has been trademarked to reflect the popular notion that it was always Colorado Wild Women.
Since its inception, CWW has escorted over 3000 women to the finish lines of their triathlon and duathlon dreams. After seeing the distaff side of the sport grow form 20% to well nigh 50%, and watching members ditch all for Ironman shirts, CWW has honed in on a mission of balance in life as well as letting it all hang out, that, from time to time. It’s coaches are the State’s finest, with degrees and athletic CV’s that others can only dream about.
We have spawned seven local triathlon businesses, and, in 2004 received an award from the International Olympic Committee for top triathlon volunteer organization in the United States. Founder Celeste Callahan was presented in 2012 the inaugural Excellence in Sport Service to Women from the International Triathlon Union.
