TRIATHLON WARNING: The feeling of accomplishment, body strength, positive energy and anti aging effects can be addictive!
While you may not be ready to compete with the 2012 U.S. Olympic Triathlon team of Laura Bennett, Sarah Groff and Gwen Jorgensen shown above, you can certainly TRY a TRI!
Talk about FREEDOM…Triathlons challenge all aspects of YOU combining strength, endurance and athletic ability for all ages, abilities and areas of specialty showing that weakness in one area doesn’t discount strength in another. This gives you a new found freedom to explore a wide range of training options - a major factor in the increasing popularity of the sport across the nation. In fact, according to USA Triathlon, ” More than 1 million people stepped up to a triathlon starting line last year—37 percent of them women.”
Women’s Health Magazine, advocates the swim-bike-run combo to combat workout boredom and as a source of exercise and training that practically guarantees weight loss. Also, the sprint distance (half-mile swim, 12-mile bike, and 3.1-mile run) opens opportunity for women of all ages, fitness levels and ability - you just need a little determination and you will cross the line! Promise.
