How Deciding to Train Instead of Just Working Out Changed My Life

            Last year, after many years of being an avid fitness enthusiast, always trying out and frequenting the newest and most popular workouts in New York City, I changed my approach to exercise in a way that brought about the results I had been seeking—both in terms of performance and physique—since I was a teenager. Instead of just working out, I started training.              What is the difference?

An interview with Triathlete, Libs

We spoke with Libs, Triathlete and PT at Lomax about her journey to racing and everything around it. She gives great advice for anyone thinking about entering their first race or looking to improve on their best time.    How did you get into being a Triathlete? When did you first start competing? I completed my first triathlon in summer last year. I come from a running and hockey background at national and international level but since moving to London hadn't been competing, I think this had suppressed my ridiculously competitive nature, so once I tried my first tri I knew I was hooked.   What does your typical week look like in terms of training?  Generally I hit 14-16 hours of training a week depending on where I am in the season. This is typically 2...
