Austin, TX, July 10, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Current Ironman world record holder Matt Hanson has partnered with Trinsik Sports to maximize his training time with NOME, the company’s innovative swim training system.
“Matt is an incredible athlete and an insightful coach,” says Juan A. Martinez, founder of Trinsik Sports. “We are thrilled to have him join our team.”
Hanson’s time of 7 hours, 39 minutes, 25 seconds in the 2018 Texas Ironman triathlon is the fastest time on record for an Ironman event. He also holds the record for the fastest marathon off the bike in the Ironman distance (2 hours, 34 minutes).
While training at home at Storm Lake, Iowa, Hanson rarely has a group to swim with and push him to improve his lap times. But NOME’s LED lighting system gives Hanson a virtual partner to answer to.
“Every coach I’ve had says I need to relocate to get the success I want, mainly due to the struggles I’ve had in the swim,” says Hanson, who has notched 11 professional victories, including three North American championships. “The NOME helps me stay accountable in training. I can compete with the light the same way I could compete with people swimming around me.”
NOME is the first product from Trinsik Sports, an Austin, Texas-based producer of sports technology equipment. NOME’s waterproof buttons and large display screen eliminate the need to count laps or check your watch or wall clock while swimming. The portable, self-contained device sits poolside and projects a bright LED light alongside you as you swim, setting your pace and guiding you on when to surface and when to turn.
The visual cues take the guesswork out of pacing for swimmers of all levels. By following the light, you can tell immediately if you if you’re swimming too slow or too fast. Coaches and swimmers can upload their own workouts via the NOME web app, and its battery lasts up to 6 hours and can be recharged in under an hour.
“I think there are a ton of applications for the NOME,” says Hanson. “But having the light to chase on every interval to use as a motivator is the biggest one for me and my training situation.”
Hanson is currently training for the 2019 Ironman World Championship in October in Hawaii.
