12 Reasons All Kids Should Try a Triathlon

Parents, it is no secret that kids are becoming less active.
This lack of activity can lead to health and mental issues as they develop and mature.
BFIT offers kids a fun and challenging environment across three sports. Swim, bike, run are the building blocks to so many other sports and activities.
Contact us at [email protected] to find out how you can get your child on a path to a healthy and propserous life.

Orders will placed next week. This year we added some new kit, skin suits (tri suit with short sleeves), cycling bibs and cycling tops. Our CARIFTA team will be looking great in Yonda kit.

We #GoFurther for our clients.

We know that #Yondaletes around the world value what we do and appreciate the thought that goes into our #CustomKit, #Italian fabric clothing, researching #Yamamoto and creating the best designs for all of our products. But sometimes when you get great feedback, you smile from ear to ear and know that it's too good to share. We can't wait to see what the new kit looks like for Barbados Federation of Island Triathletes - BFIT!

Pan American Triathlon Championships here in Monterrey tomorrow afternoon. My 1st Olympic Qualifying points race of 2019. Very thankful to Terra Caribbean for getting me here, and really excited to have them on board for my #TrailtoTokyo.

Men are off at 1:30pm local time, just to make sure we feel the full wrath of that Mexican heat. Should be lovely 🔥. Check out Federación Mexicana de Triatlón AC social channels for updates and World Triathlon website for results.

[04/28/19]   One thing that is common for new triathletes is the issue of open water anxiety.

Some of this comes from fear of the unknown- mostly being in deep water and not sure what's below you, or even in front of you some of the time.

Scientifically, it makes perfect sense that we would be afraid of deep water.

Since we are not natural water creatures (for example, we need goggles to see underwater!), our brains perceive the deep water as a long way down to fall and get hurt or killed.

So an instant panic sets in with many people.It's not something you just snap your fingers and "get over".

Oceans and lakes can present an even more serious issue- especially if you can't see anything below you!

It's not JUST the fear of creatures below, but also the idea that you don't even know how deep it is! If your fears are starting in the pool, use a kick board and fins. Hold the board out in front of you and look down as you go over the deep water. This exposure will eventually help your brain to adjust to the fact that there is no danger here. Then, the panicking will stop.

In the open water, just take baby steps. Swim to where it gets deeper, then turn around, or hug the shore. Just inch out a little at a time. Always swim with a group or a buddy. Find your stroke rhythm. When you can get into a rhythm, counting strokes can allow you to focus on being present, and stop your mind from going to all kinds of unrealistic, unproductive, stressful places. Just like kids putting their faces in the water and blowing bubbles, as an adult we still need this "easing into" the deep and open water.

Don't feel bad if this is you- it just means you're human. :)

Keep on befriending the water.

Good advice compliments of Kevin Tri Swim Coach
