It’s time for you to try out a TRIATHLON this year. Here’s why
Triathlons are open to everybody – with a range of distances to try, there’s one to suit you. It’s time to give it a go!
The benefits of doing a triathlon are incredible. Let's have a look at just a few...
Build up your physical health and fitness
Taking on a combination of running, swimming and cycling works lots of different muscle groups. Across each of the individual sports, you will be required to use your entire body which will strengthen the key areas of calves, quads, hip flexors, hamstrings, glutes, arms and core. Increased muscle mass will quickly make day to day activities feel easier with a stronger body.
Improved cardio fitness that comes with training the cardio-vascular system needed across all the sports in triathlon, will aid in all-round stamina and strength. It will take less work for your body to move and get around on a daily basis – kiss goodbye to panting at the top of the stairs! As well as improving physical ability, it also strengthens the heart and lungs, reducing the chances of health risks such as heart disease.
It's a chance to try something new!
Taking on a new sport is a fresh new challenge, and one that will reward you in mood and motivation across all areas of your life. It’s an opportunity to discover new talents and gain new skills, which keeps us young and brings purpose into our lives and confidence within ourselves.
Taking on a challenge puts you in the same boat as everyone else taking on the same challenge! You are able to meet and connect with others going through the same experience. It’s likely you will have similar interests and personality traits; they are just as cool and brave as you to be trying out triathlons after all!
Most importantly – have fun!
In our busy lives its really important to have fun. Engaging in something you enjoy will reduce stress and improve happiness.
