Whole Body Workout
Multisports provide a whole body workout. You work many muscle groups within your body through the three disciplines of swimming, cycling and running. You will develop lean muscles, build strength and tone your entire body.
If you are looking to loose wright, this is the ideal sport. Swimming, cycling and running, known as cross training will make you feel ‘fit’ like never before as well as burning off huge amounts of body fat.
Mixing up your training will help lower your blood pressure, prevent diabetes and obesity as well as lowering risk of osteoporosis or depression. Athletes of multisports have larger hearts and a heart rate that is 17% below the average heart rate. A triathletes heart does have to work as hard as a heart of a non-trained individual. This will automatically add extra years to your life.
Naturally once you enjoy your training and start to see results, you will naturally want to support your hard work with a healthy balanced diet. Your body will need the fuel to ensure it can train effectively through all three disciplines.
Hands down you will notice a huge increase in your energy levels. In-turn this will help you to increase productivity in other areas of your life such as your work and family life.
As you combine three different sports, your body is less likely to become injured. Each discipline focuses on different parts of your body and muscle groups, taking the constant stress off of one particular muscle group. You should be able to train injury-free for longer increasing speed and stamina overtime.
Confidence and bragging rights are increased. From the training you take part in, to the events you race at, your confidence will go sky high, having a positive knock on effect on your Mental Health. You should feel very proud of your achievements!
