Fitness First launches indoor triathlon training ground in the Philippines

Fitness First launches indoor triathlon training ground in the Philippines
June 7, 2017

Fitness First Asia has launched an indoor triathlon training ground at its club in Bonifacio Global City, Philippines.

The first-ever indoor triathlon training ground in a Fitness First club in Asia, the multi sports zone offers swimming, biking and running and is open to experienced triathletes and beginners who would want to try the sport in a safe environment.

For beginners, the program is designed to slowly build confidence so they can build up to tackle longer distance triathlons in the future - involving swimming in the three-lane, 24-metre pool for 10 minutes, a 30-minute ride on a stationary bike, before transitioning on to a treadmill for a 20-minute run.

The Multi-Sports Zone also aims to offer a conducive indoor environment for advanced triathletes, used to racing under extreme conditions, to constantly improve their performance.

Training can be done in groups or individually with the zone offering a respite from the searing heat of the summer sun or the unforgiving rains in the upcoming rainy season.

Fitness First Philippines Country Manager Mark Ellis explains “we are very excited to introduce the new Indoor Triathlon program exclusive here at the Fitness First Platinum Aura Premier’s Multi Sport Zone.

“We have invested in top of the line equipment and have well trained coaches to execute the program. We are bringing the Triathlon, one of the country’s fastest growing sports, indoors in a safe and simulated environment.

“Experienced triathletes, triathlon coaches and even beginners can benefit from this programme as it aims to train, strengthen and advance your triathlon skills, no matter what fitness level you’re in.”

Ellis adds that instead of travelling to far flung locations on weekends to train, triathletes can conveniently visit the facility at the heart of the city any day of the week and work on their swim, bike and run performance in preparation for the next big race.

Commenting on the club’s other programs, Ellis adds “we offer our members innovative activities to change their workout routine under one roof. Recently, we introduced popular classes such as aerial Yoga, pole dancing and the Box Freestyle group training.”

The club is located at SM Aura Premiere in Bonifacio Global City.
