Team Runner Rocky Takes Part in the Fitness First Indoor Triathlon Launch in SM Aura Premier

We Will Tour You to the First Indoor Triathlon in the Country

Last May 23 2017, Team Runner Rocky got an inside look of Fitness First Platinum SM Aura’s Indoor Triathlon Program media launch. 

The very first indoor triathlon training ground in the heart of the metropolis was recently launched, a first among all Fitness First clubs in Asia, at the Fitness First SM Aura Premiere in Bonifacio Global City. 

The Fitness First Platinum’s Multi Sports Zone at the SM Aura Premier in Bonifacio Global City was unveiled before the members of the media and the fitness community as well.

The venue is expected to attract many sports and fitness enthusiasts who would want to take cover from the searing heat of the summer sun or the unforgiving rains in the upcoming wet season because it has a great space for swimming, biking and running. 

“We are very excited to introduce the new Indoor Triathlon program exclusive here at the Fitness First Platinum Aura Premier’s Multi Sport Zone. We have invested in top-of-the-line equipment and have well-trained coaches to execute the program. We are bringing the Triathlon, one of the country’s fastest growing sports, indoors in a safe and simulated environment. Experienced triathletes, triathlon coaches and even beginners can benefit from this program as it aims to train, strengthen and advance your triathlon skills, no matter what fitness level you’re in,” Mark Ellis, Fitness First Philippines Country Manager said.

For those who are training for an incoming triathlon event, the Fitness First Platinum’s Multi Sports Zone is the perfect training ground since the facilities are of world-class standard.

An indoor triathlon program will train beginners who would want to try the sport in a perfectly safe environment. The program is designed to slowly build their confidence to tackle longer distance triathlons in the future.

Triathletes are used to training under extreme conditions like heat and rain. The Fitness First Platinum Aura’s Multi-Sports Zone is a conducive indoor environment for them to constantly improve their performance. It’s also an accessible and safe environment to bike and run, away from the Metro’s traffic and pollution.

Instead of travelling to far flung locations on weekends to train, triathletes can conveniently visit the facility at the heart of the city any day of the week and perfect their swim, bike and run performance in preparation for the next big triathlon. 

Fitness First has invested in top of the line equipment to ensure the quality of the training experience.

Just like in the outdoors, this very first indoor triathlon training ground can be maximized either in a structured group event or as an individual activity.

During the launch, we were given a tour of the facilities before an actual Indoor Triathlon Session was started. Several triathletes participated in the exciting event which was a shortened version of the Indoor Tri Program. 

The signature Indoor Triathlon program involves swimming in the 3-lane, 24-meter pool for a 10-minute swim, taking a grind on the stationary bike for a 30-minute ride, before transitioning into the treadmill for a 20-minute run. All distances are tallied then winners are determined based on the overall distance measured across the three disciplines. However, the program is adaptable to the skill levels of the participants, whether beginners or experienced triathletes.  

The Philippine Triathlon Team vs the FitnessFirst Triathlon team went head to head in the indoor Triathlon Sprint. Team Fitness First showed enormous heart and fighting spirit but in the end, Mark Hosana of the Philippine Triathlon Team bested out all the other competitors by a big margin. He even had to redo his run on the treadmill after one of the media accidentally stepped on the plug and it had to be restarted.

We also got the chance to chat with the Philippine Triathlon team, their coach and also fellow fitness enthusiasts Bubbles Paraiso, Dyan Castillejo and Fitness First Country manager Mark Ellis about their training, diet and mindset that makes certified “mamaws” in the sport. (full interview about their secret trainings coming out soon)


“We offer our members innovative activities to change their workout routine under one roof. Recently, we introduced popular classes such as Aerial Yoga, Pole Dancing and the Box Freestyle Group training. Today and moving forward, we know that our members will be able to appreciate training for the triathlon with this new Indoor Triathlon program as our main objective is to help everyone go further and achieve their goals both in fitness and in life.” Mark Ellis adds.


Winners were awarded with exciting prizes from Fitness First and its partners such as Sun Life, Gatorade, Raw Bites, A Game, Nutrition Depot and Toby’s Estate.

We also got are share of goodies and even won in the raffle!
