A 5400-square-foot triathlon coaching and training facility called Playtri will open this summer in Hillside Village, the northeast corner of Mockingbird and Abrams.
Playtri, according to its spokespeople, offers a first- of-its-kind, in the Southwest, performance facility for triathletes.
“This will be like nothing this region has ever seen and is great news for triathletes, swimmers, cyclists and runners,” says Ahmed Zaher, Playtri’s founder and world- renowned triathlete. ”We have been coaching and training triathletes for over 10 years and found that there is a real need for this kind of comprehensive facility.”
Zaher lives in the neighborhood, and Advocate magazine published this story about him in 2002.
