Swim, bike and run? Think there's absolutely no way you can do it? Think again! You can. In fact, anyone can with the right mindset, training and determination. All it takes is the first jump in the pool, ride on a bike or run on the track. Combining three sports may seem daunting at first, but once you start training, you will be signed up for a race before you know it.
Three reasons to start training now:
Get in Shape
Triathlon training reaps total-body benefits. See the benefits with lean arms, toned legs and a strong core.
