Combine Training, the 4,200 square foot state-of-the-art training facility, will host an open house for friends, family and newcomers on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m., 469 West Putnam Avenue, Greenwich.

Combine, showcasing their 16 newly designed Computrainer bikes, Woodway treadmills, and 30-foot turf, will feature guest speaker Alon Marom, Director of Development at Kids in Crisis based out of Cos Cob. Director Marom will be on hand to give a brief overview of Kids in Crisis which is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing emergency shelter, crisis counseling and community educational programs for children of all ages and families dealing with a wide range of crises- domestic violence, mental health and family problems, substance abuse, economic difficulties and more.

Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut children and families; last year, 6,184 children and families received assistance from the organization. Director Marom will also educate the group about their affiliation with the Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon and 5K/10K. Refreshments and light bites will be served.

Combine boasts of one of the largest Computrainer bike set ups in the Fairfield and Westchester Counties, offering private and group training for athletes, elite, professional, amateur, collegiate, high school and youth of all levels. Class schedules can be obtained on the site (, with single or multiple class packages available online. For those newcomers who are in attendance at the Open House, an additional 25% off Private Training Package will also be offered.
