Benefits of Training for a Triathlon Like IRONMAN® Boulder



Have you heard the big news yet?! IRONMAN® is in town!

Training for a triathlon such as IRONMAN® Boulder includes tremendous health benefits.

  • The swimming component of the IRONMAN® coupled with training in the swim spa strengthens your upper body’s muscle tone.
  • Versus running a marathon, participating in a triathlon is easier on the joints. Swimming in open water and the swim spa places minimal stress on your joints. Cycling is the same way, as there is no weight-bearing involved. Running can often lead to overtraining as a result of the pounding on your joints.
  • Cross-training for an IRONMAN® triathlon improves your stamina, power, flexibility, and performance.
  • Swimming along with running and biking also offers a balanced workout program, using all of your major muscle areas.
