Cycling, running and swimming: The golden trio of triathlon competitions; teach the toughest of athletes today!
Competing in triathlons is one of the most demanding fitness activities known to mankind! Many athletes can excel at one sport or discipline. Maybe you are a supremely fast runner? Maybe you are powerful and can lift weights? Not many athletes, however, can be skilled at three different sporting events and combine them all together. This is exactly what the triathlon is. A grueling feat of endurance that involves cycling, running and swimming. Triathlons take a huge amount of discipline and determination to compete in, but those who do can be counted as some of the fittest individuals anywhere. If you are considering competing in a triathlon, or are a professional seeking extra training, hiring the expertise of a certified triathlon coach can be a great option.
