Swapping The Road For The Carpet!

Fair weather cyclists have been spear-heading the latest fitness craze of “stationary biking” in the privacy of their own homes.

High Street store Halfords has discovered a startling rise in sales of Turbo Trainers as more and more people discover the benefits of the clever device that turns an everydaybike into a fitness machine.

Cheaper than gym membership, far less intrusive than a cross-trainer, treadmill or conventional exercise bike; latest figures from the cycle, leisure and car parts retailer show sales of the machines more than doubled when the cold, wet, weather pushed all but the most committed cyclists indoors.

Asked where the preferred home for the turbo trainer was, 80 per cent said the garage, 10 per cent a spare room, 5 per cent the kitchen or dining room while 5 per cent admitted to using the main living room and exercised while watching TV.

Halfords cycle expert Justin Stevenson said: “It is no secret that the number of people cycling goes up as the weather gets warmer and down as it gets chillier, but the new generation of excellent cycle trainers, with great stability and different levels of magnetic resistance to mimic harder rides, have been keeping people occupied.

“In these uncertain economic times people are looking to get the best use possible out of the equipment they have and turbo trainers are a great way of ensuring you can keep your fitness levels up by cycling even when you don’t feel like going out in the cold and wet. An added bonus is that they take up little space when not in use.”

Triathlon Becoming The Fastest Growing Mainstream Sport In The World

Since it’s beginnings in the late 1970’s triathlon has steadily grown to the point where it has become one of the fastest growing mainstream sports in the world.

There is no doubt that it’s spectacular growth can be attributed to the fact that it is a sport for virtually people of all ages and all levels of athletic ability. It knows no ethnic or gender boundaries and includes people from every level of society. It is not unusual at all for a housewife and mother of three to be in a triathlon and find herself sharing the Ironman course with a CEO of a huge corporation, a millionaire, a famous Hollywood star or a pro athlete.

Triathlon truly is for everyone and has so much to offer all those who decide to get off the couch and dust off their running shoes, buy themselves a road bike, and head out to the local pool to learn how to swim.

TRIATHLON FOR KIDS

In this day and age, kids are in desperate need of balance in their lives. They have been born into an age of high technology and fast food that has proven to have some serious ramifications when it comes to the physical and emotional health of kids around the world.

Too much time spent on home computers, lap-tops, cell phones and text-messaging combined with little regard to healthy food choices is far too often leading to obesity and health issues among teens and pre-teens.

It is simply unacceptable to have pre-teens dealing with type-2 diabetes simply because of lifestyle and those in the health industry are scrambling to come to grips with the problem.

Triathlon could well be the answer for providing kids an avenue for adding balance to their lives. It seems that many parents are beginning to see the value of the sport as well.

Kids as young as six-years-old can take part in one of the hundreds of kids triathlons that are springing up all over North America and indeed around the world. If they can’t make the school team they no longer have to resign themselves to the sidelines cheering on others.

Triathlon for kids is all about having fun. As they get older the distances they swim, bike and run increase incrementally. Youth have the option to take the sport as far as they want. As far as Simon Whitfield perhaps who was a tri-kid and went on to be an Olympic champion in the sport.
