Do you want to feel fitter, look leaner, see new places and meet likeminded people? It's time to take on a triathlon, writes Lucy Fry

Let’s start with the not-so-unimportant aesthetic element. Triathletes are renowned for their fabulous physiques and healthy glow (think low body fat, winking muscles and suntan). It’s not just all the swimming, cycling and running – running is particularly good for stripping fat, while cycling tends to promise bulging quads and swimming pumps the arms and shoulders – there’s also the alchemy of putting those three disciplines together in monthly training schedules that works wonders for both brain and body. Regular endorphins boost your mood and triathlon, being a multi-discipline sport, promotes psychological toughness, too. Supplement all that, as many dedicated triathletes do, with a little extra core and mobility work, and you’ll be a bona fide Brownlee before you know it.
