INDOOR TRIATHLON

Indoor_Tri_4cIf you’ve ever wanted to try a tri, this is where to start. The 60-minute indoor workout will feature a 10-minute pool swim, 30-minute spin on a bike, 20-minute treadmill run and is the perfect way to kick-start your triathlon training. The indoor triathlon is based on time rather than distance — meaning you receive points for going further in a specific period of time, not going faster over a fixed distance. Participants are graded on a curve.

All Indoor Tri participants will receive:

  • “Triathlete” Indoor Tri lifestyle shirt
  • Race bib
  • Swim cap
  • Additional great offers from Life Time for members and guests
  • Results posted after on indoortri.com

Athletes of all abilities from beginner to experienced are invited. Indoor Tri events are open to both members and non-members of Life Time Fitness.
