May 23, 2017, Fitness First Platinum SM Aura Premier: An Indoor Triathlon training ground in the heart of the metropolis was launched, a first among all Fitness First clubs in Asia. The Fitness First Platinum’s Multi Sports Zone at the SM Aura Premier in Bonifacio Global City was unveiled before the members of the media and the fitness community as well.
The place is expected to attract many sports and fitness enthusiasts who would want to take cover from the searing heat of the summer sun or the unforgiving rains in the upcoming wet season because it has a great space for swimming, biking and running.
“We are very excited to introduce the new Indoor Tri 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 program as it aims to train, strengthen and advance your triathlon skills, no matter what fitness level you’re in.” Mark Ellis, Fitness First Philippines Country Manager states.
For those who are training for an incoming triathlon event, the Fitness First Platinum’s Multi Sports Zone is the perfect training ground since the facilities are of world-class standard. An indoor triathlon program will train beginners who would want to try the sport in a perfectly safe environment. The program is designed to slowly build their confidence to tackle longer distance triathlons in the future.
Triathletes are used to training under extreme conditions like heat and rain. The Fitness First Platinum Aura’s Multi-Sports Zone is a conducive indoor environment for them to constantly improve their performance. It’s also an accessible and safe environment to bike and run, away from the Metro’s traffic and pollution. 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 perfect their swim, bike and run performance in preparation for the next big triathlon.
Just like in the outdoors, this very first indoor triathlon training ground can be maximized either in a structured group event or as an individual activity. During the launch, the guests were given a tour of the facilities before an actual Indoor TriathlonSession was started. Several triathletes participated in the said exciting event which was a shortened version of the Indoor Tri Program.
The signature Indoor Triathlon program involves swimming in the 3-lane, 24-meter pool for a 10-minute swim, taking a grind on the stationary bike for 30-min ride, before transitioning into the treadmill for a 20-min run. All distances are tallied then winners are determined based on the overall distance measured across the three disciplines. However, the program is adaptable to the skill levels of the participants, whether beginners or experienced triathletes.
“We offer our members innovative activities to change up their workout routine under one roof. Recently, we introduced popular classes such as Aerial Yoga, Pole Dancing and the Box Freestyle Group training. Today and moving forward, we know that our members will be able to appreciate training for the Triathlon with this new Indoor Tri program as our main objective is to help everyone go further and achieve their goals both in fitness and in life.” Mark Ellis adds.
Winners were awarded with exciting prizes from Fitness First and its partners, Sun Life, Gatorade, Raw Bites, A Game, Nutrition Depot and Toby’s Estate.
