I did Team in Training about 5 years ago... wow, time flies! I feel like I just did that...
But anyway, for Team in Training you are part of a team usually in your area or city that works out together usually once a week. There is a coach given to you in which they provide you with workouts to do usually like 4 or 5 days a week on your own, while one of those workouts will be together as a group. And then yes, fundraising is involved. Depending on what event you are doing and where you are going, the amount you are required to raise will depend on that. The Maui event I did was one of the highest amounts you have to raise. I had to raise $5400.00 individually, but then they paid for my flight, hotel, and most of my food in Maui. I really did have a blast, and it was such a great feeling to be able to raise that much money for the cause. My friend had just gotten over having lymphoma and she asked me to join the team with her. We were part of the Tacoma triathlon Team in Training group.
