    Getting Started

    • Step 1: Define Your Goals

      The first step in any new endeavor is to define your goals. What do you want to achieve in multisport and triathlon? What type of discipline do you want to compete in? Whatever your goals may be, write them down. Make sure they’re specific and measurable.

    • Step 2: Assess Your Fitness Level

      Before you start training, assess your fitness level. This will help you determine your starting point and create a plan tailored to your abilities. Consider your current level of fitness, any injuries or health issues you may have, and your experience with endurance sports.

    • Step 4: Gear

      You do NOT need the latest most expensive gear to participate in multisport. There are a few key pieces of equipment, including a bike, running shoes, and a swimsuit or wetsuit (depending temperatures). Invest in gear that is comfortable, fits well, and is appropriate for your skill level and goals. Don't be afraid to ask for recommendations or seek advice from experienced athletes.

    • Step 5: Join a Community

      One of the best ways to get started in multisport is to join a community of like-minded athletes. This could be a local triathlon club or friends who train together. Being part of a community can provide motivation, support, and valuable advice.

    • Step 6: Participate in Events

      Participating in events is a great way to test your skills and measure your progress. Start with smaller, local events and work your way up to longer, more challenging races. Remember to focus on your own goals and progress. Don't compare yourself to others.

    Equipment You'll Need
