Here's what some of our customers are saying about Tri Fitness:
"How can I ever express how grateful I am for choosing Vicki Ostendorf as my coach for two years in a row; you know me better than myself at times, and you are a master at helping me push beyond the boundaries of what I thought were my limits. I am healthy, not injured, not overtrained, and had a race result that I would never have dreamed possible two years ago!
I beat the spandex pants off of countless athletes that have had to endure 2-3 times the training volume that we did, but thanks to Vicki's plan, we concentrated on quality, purposeful workouts that get results, not junk miles that serve only to wear you down mentally and physically. I know she will continue to bring out the very best in me, because I haven't found my limits yet!
I look forward to training with the Triftness group next year and many years to come; I'm not done, by a LONG shot!"
Carol L. (Reguarding a shoe fit and shoe purchase)
"We just wanted to say THANK YOU to you! We both had a great experience and are inspired to try other triathlons! We only wish you guys were a little closer to us (Eden Prairie), as we would certainly use more of your training services. If you ever open another place in the South Metro, be sure to let us know! In the meantime, if you know of any other training facilities similar to yours, we’d love to learn about them.
We hope to participate in some of your other race events. Ever think of a My Second (Third,….)Tri?! The friendly competition was so great! I wish more races could embrace that mentality. You guys have really done it right, and we sincerely appreciate it!
Two New Triathletes—Sue and Jenny Mohn (regarding My First Tri August 2013)
1) We can talk ourselves into or out of pretty much anything. I talked myself into doing this event and could easily have talked myself out of finishing, particularly when I was waiting to go in the water and started to panic a little and found myself starting to cry, or during all those seemingly endless hills of the bike ride when my muscles were shaking like crazy and I couldn't get my breath, or during the hills (yes, even more) of the run (which I mostly walked). But because I went public with this goal and what I was working on, I couldn't let any of you, or myself, down. I am tremendously grateful to ViSalus for giving me the courage to push myself.
"I want to give kudos to your great staff-Brandon and Dennis have both been very informative, helpful, friendly and supportive. It makes the experience that much better. Thanks!"
Ann G (regarding My First Tri August 2013)
"The shoes worked great, perfect fit."
David R. (regarding a Karhu shoe purchase August 2013)
"Thanks for the great running shoe fitting yesterday! Quality people, quality products, competitive prices! I'll be back!"

"A friend and I came into the store last Thursday 5/16 to get our feet "fitted" for the correct shoe. Although I have a total lapse in the employee's name (she was a thin, tan, blonde gal) I will NEVER forget her confidence, compassion, knowledge, friendliness, passion, support and non-bias attitude. Very rarely do you get service like I received that day. I just wanted to give you a GIGANTIC thank you.
You will never know how much I appreciated you that day. My feet thank you too! You are AMAZING at what you do. I will never go anywhere else again to buy shoes. I just wish I lived closer so I could attend some of the classes that are offered too. Thanks again."
"[My mom] thinks so highly of you guys and is so grateful for everything you are doing for her. So am I!
She has come so far and can do things now she never thought would be possible after her surgeries. Even Physical Therapy after surgery didn't come close to helping her as much as you guys have. I don't think I can ever express how happy I am that she finally found a way that works for her to make healthy lifestyle changes. I hated seeing her in so much pain. Thank you so much for helping her!"
"Wow! I just wanted to say a big thanks to all the staff, trainers and volunteers who made My First Tri a great event. The smiles and cheers were really appreciated.
Also, for anyone thinking of a first tri I highly recommend the mini tri event. That helped me so much with the transitions. I may have been a little slow, but I felt efficient and calm.
Thanks again. I\'m looking forward to swim training with you this fall."
If you can believe it, I just started using the bike you fitted me for this past weekend. I've got about 50miles in and I must say, what a difference. I feel much more comfortable and have consistently been able to hold much higher speeds.
"My name is Jessica and I am a 29 year old physical therapist and PhD student currently in week 12 of my 36-week Ironman WI training plan. My friend, Adam, started participating in Tri Fitness master swim classes and had rave reviews. "
Re: Half Fast Half Marathon, 10K and 5K, February 2012
"Thank you guys for the great birthday! I ran my first 5K today at the Half Fast (I was the big  guy) and it happened to be my 37th birthday. It was an awesome time and look forward to doing many more. Also, thank you for posting the pictures. Our camera crapped out and my
wife didn't get any photos when I finished so it was really cool to be able to download them."

Re: Fast Before The Feast, November 2011
"I just wanted to write to thank everyone at Tri-Fitness for the great Fast Before the Feast event! I had a good time running before the big meal, and I was lucky enough to win a pair of some great K-Swiss shoes (I love them, by the way!).
I wrote about the event and your great store in my blog, and I just wanted to let you know how much the great service in the store meant to me. Nice work!"
