Training has a function – besides building up muscles? Yes, it definitely has!
I am doing workout in gyms for several years by now. Sometime more effectively, sometimes less. It is only natural that I first had to build up knowledge, before being able to train efficiently. Unluckily you either have to be motivated to do a lot of research on your own or to meet the right people at the right time, that are happy to share their knowledge with you.
I was lucky enough to have both of it, self-motivation and a pool of good trainers that were delighted to pass me over some “tips and tricks”.
Starting training at the age of 15 years I can look back onto 4 years of constant training – okay, little exception, during my year abroad in France I had to insert a break and start almost from the beginning afterwards…
Lexi raises some interesting points here – is there space for a gothic or other fashion sense. I think so – with so many people making their own lycra / workout wear and with printable lycra being easy to come by – there has to be others who want a different look – how about fit and fat or gothic… get in touch if you workout in lycra and mash up different genres of clothing for fun!

The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.
Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).
o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.
The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.
Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.
They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.
Other benefits include:
Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise
Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.
