Sessions will touch on the importance of stretching and rolling, training, bike maintenance and swimming tips. They are once a month.

"We have found that a lot of people who have been doing the Ironman that have been going to some of the local events, a lot of them are new and haven't done a session like this before or a training of this caliber before, so we wanted to make sure to keep people as healthy as they can be throughout their training," Whitney Long, Director of Wellness Development at Carilion Clinic, said.
