THE BENEFITS OF TRIATHLON

running keeps you in shape while never getting bored, and lets you enjoy the great outdoors and reap the benefits of three complementary sports.

With triathlon, you can say goodbye to the day-to-day training grind since you constantly switch between sports to give your entire body a great workout. This outdoor sport is perfect for anyone who wants a new challenge and to discover new surroundings with family or friends.

1. WORK YOUR ENTIRE BODY 

Swimming, cycling and running are three sports that complement each other, letting you work all your muscles, not to mention your breathing and endurance.

Plus, two of them – swimming and cycling – are weight-supported sports, meaning they lower the impact on your joints. It doesn't get better than that!

2. SPICE UP YOUR TRAINING 

Doing triathlon means never having to trudge through the same old workout or getting bored with a sport: if you're tired of swimming, you switch to cycling, and once that gets old, it's time to run!

3. CHANGE YOUR SURROUNDINGS 

Triathlon is done outdoors, which gives you a chance to enjoy new scenery and being in nature. With every new race you get to visit a new city and have a new adventure.

4. BE IN GREAT COMPANY 

The best thing about triathlon is getting to train and race with others. It's always more fun – and more motivating – to take on new challenges and set new goals with family and friends. It's also a great excuse to organise a weekend or holiday away!

Triathlon can also be done as a relay, so you can share your passion with someone else who may not be a triathlete.

5. SET NEW CHALLENGES FOR YOURSELF 

If you've grown a bit weary of doing the same sport all the time, why not try something new to shake things up? Triathlon is perfect when you need a new challenge! If you're just getting started, know that anyone can do three sports one after another over short distances (300 m swim, 8 km cycle and 2.5 km run segments). It's a good way for beginners to try out all three sports at once with a minimum of training.

There are triathlons all over the world in a range of formats, so once you finish your first race, it's time to start looking for your next one!

Triathlon is an amazing discipline that offers a variety of benefits. Go on and give it a try! You just might become addicted...

Passionnée de sport, j’ai longtemps pratiqué la danse avant de découvrir le triathlon qui est devenu une vraie addiction dès ma première course ! Adepte des distances Sprint et Olympique, j’aime la variété qu’offre ce sport tant au niveau de sa pratique que de l’environnement dans lequel il me fait évoluer. Le triathlon c’est toujours de beaux défis en perspective avec beaucoup de plaisir à la clé !
