Unleash Your Potential: Is it Time for Your First Triathlon?

It’s been on your bucket list for a while. You’ve always said you wanted to do a triathlon. Make this the year!

Discover the Athlete in You – Toronto Triathlon Festival Edition

It’s been on your bucket list for a while. You’ve always said you wanted to do a triathlon. Make this the year! The Toronto Triathlon Festival is an ideal event for a first triathlon with a protected lake swim, fully closed roads for the bike (Gardiner and DVP!), and a spectator friendly run and finish.

But we know signing up is just the first step and all the questions and prep can be daunting. How should I train? What equipment do I need? Can I complete the swim? How should I do the transitions?


Who We’re Talking To

Typically we find people coming into triathlon come from two different backgrounds.

1. Active Enthusiasts: Looking For Their Next Challenge

You’re a runner, a cyclist, or a swimmer. Or maybe you’re a regular at the gym, love spinning classes, or have a passion for HIIT-style workouts. The idea of a multisport event is the next step up to challenge you and keep you growing. The Toronto Triathlon Festival could be your next thrilling challenge.

2. Triathlon Dreamers: Setting Goals To Work Towards

You were active in the past, or you’ve made a resolution to get more active. And you’ve realized that having a goal is a big motivator to becoming consistent. You’re considering the triathlon as your gateway back into regular exercise or maybe even your first-ever endurance endeavor. The Toronto Triathlon Festival is the journey you’ve been waiting for.


What’s stopping you? Overcoming the Hurdles

Here’s what we hear that holds people back, but don’t worry – none of these challenges are insurmountable and conquering them is what helps you grow and makes the accomplishment meaningful and rewarding.

1. Swimming Anxiety

If you don’t have a swimming background, the uncertainty of being able to swim the distance combined with the fear of swimming in open water, alongside others is enough to stop most from taking the plunge. Take a deep breath; you’re not alone.

One of the key things we wanted to include in the 13-week bootcamp was plenty of time dedicated to guiding you through getting more comfortable in the water. Getting you from struggling to swim a few lengths at a pool to being able to swim the distance and feel comfortable doing it. And providing coaching on open water techniques, calming your worries and turning the water into your ally.

2. Decisions Like Bikes, Trisuits, Wetsuits and Transitions

Not sure which bike is right for you? Do you need a wetsuit? Which wetsuit? Do I need cycling shoes, or can I use running shoes? Our bootcamp has you covered with expert advice. Plus, learn the art of seamless transitions from swim to bike and bike to run, making your journey smoother than ever.

3. Questions Like Nutrition and Race-Day Essentials

What should you eat before and during the race? How should I pace myself? The bootcamp provides a detailed nutrition and pacing plan, ensuring you have the energy to conquer each leg of the triathlon. No more worries; we’ve got your back.

4. Training for Three Sports

Balancing swimming, cycling, and running in your weekly routine? How long do you need to train? How can you fit it all in? How much should you train for each sport? Our structured 13-week training plan caters to your 5-hour weekly commitment, offering flexibility and efficiency. For those seeking an extra challenge, ramp it up to 10-12 hours a week and watch your performance soar.
