USA Triathlon

Membership is $39 and the benefits are worth it. Many USAT sanctioned races require that you have USAT insurance. Non-members pay $10 per race, so after a few races, the membership pays itself. USAT offers many other resources as well.

Most races now use for registration. For a small membership fee, you get discounts on race fees, personalized pages, and other benefits.



My favorite store for all triathlete gear. The salesmen are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. You can visit their store or shop online. Prices are very competitive.


Helen's Cycles

If you need a bike, this is the only place to go.


Phidippides Encino

The best store for running shoes. Every salesperson runs whether it is track, trail, or road. And they have the best selection of all stores.


Triathlete Magazine

In my opinion, the best magazine for the sport. The articles are helpful for athletes of all levels. Race summaries are great. The magazine is straightforward and definitely not pretentious.


Los Angeles Tri Club

A great club for Los Angelenos. The have daily training sessions, regular meetings, and a great list of sponsors and discounts.


Phase IV

If you need coaching, physical therapy, nutrition help, bike fit, or just a running lesson, go see Bob. He's the best in the business.


Herbs and More

If you're looking for an alternative to traditional "medicine" make an appointment with Steve. His process really works.
