​"The seminar was incredibly effective in conveying the 'must have' information for defending yourself in a threatening situation, and I loved the hands on (literally!) practice of self defense techniques we received.  I encourage all women to attend the beginner seminar, and think seriously  about going through a 5 week course - I know I am!​" - Pam White, Director of Training, Peachtree Tri Club

Read Shawna Block's blog post about her experience:

"Thank you for offering the event! After hearing about all the recent attacks, I had been feeling pretty hesitant to go on my sunrise or sunset runs alone. I left the course feeling less vulnerable, more aware of my surroundings, and with a new interest in learning self-defense. Great take-aways for everyone! Thanks, Meghan McNulty"

"Thanks again for the seminar. I really enjoyed it and even more important so did my 14yr old! In fact we have asked her school to contact Nathan J. Nowak about having a full course for the teen girls. Thanks again,Lauren"

"My friends and I really enjoyed it (the self defense seminar) and are incredibly appreciative of the tips and techniques that Nathan provided." - Cecily




Watch our team interviewed about the "Are You Prepared?" Self Defense Seminar!!    
Three attacks on joggers have happened within just two weeks of each other. It was enough for some members of Atlanta's fitness community to start working out at home, but that's changing with an effort to take back the trails. WATCH THE INTERVIEW HERE!

View A Brief Example Of Skills Learned During The Seminar

TeamEndured and Trinity Fitness are partnering with local triathlon/running/exercise organizations across Atlanta to offer women's "Are You Prepared" Self Defense classes. Self-defense is not a “nice to know” thing, it’s a “need to know!” Learning to assess situations, avoid conflict and if necessary, fight back is the most empowering and successful strategy to keep yourself and others safe.

​"Are You Prepared?" is a self-defense program developed by Trinity Fitness to provide women with the knowledge and power to defend themselves. Trinity’s dynamic interactive seminar will instruct you on practical techniques that can prevent you from being a victim. "Are You Prepared?" incorporates real-life scenarios with practical, step-by-step techniques that are easy to use and execute under pressure.

About a month ago a fellow cyclist posted on a facebook forum that she felt she was being "stalked" while riding in Cartersville.  The TeamEndured Board noticed the post and decided the athletic community needed to band together to improve our self protection skills.  One of the board members, Nathan Nowak, is a recognized expert in this field and offered to volunteer his time and training for the community.  The team began discussing the course with local partners and everyone agreed it was a much needed service.  The main organizers were also signed up to ride in the charity bike ride supporting Livestrong and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and so rather than ask friends, athletes, and partners for donations they decided to volunteer their time as a fundraiser in which the entire community would benefit.  The recent attacks in the news occurred after the planning for this event was well underway and have served to further stress the need!
