Twenty employees from Endless Pools® raced in this year’s Philly Triathlon, continuing a company tradition of competing in their hometown event.
Thirteen athletes raced individually in the Sprint and Olympic distance races, while three teams also combined to complete a leg of each section of the swim, bike and run.
Participants ranged from seasoned veterans to first-time triathletes.
International Account Manager Enzo Amara, who completed his inaugural race in less than two hours, initially spent time rehabbing at work in an exercise pool with underwater treadmill after breaking his foot in December.
“I couldn’t walk on my foot without a boot. When I was in the water, it took all the pressure off my foot and joints and I was able to rehab and regain strength,” said Amara.
Endless Pools sends a strong contingent of athletes to the event every year, and each employee has honed their swimming skills at work.
“I was able to challenge myself in the Endless Pool because you can adjust the current,” said Amara. “If you can’t keep up with the pace, you know it, which is different from a traditional pool. And the underwater mirror was a great help for my technique.”
With a strong team atmosphere and the ability to train in the simulated open water environment that the Endless Pool offers, Amara and the entire group showed that consistent training produces results.
The company not only provides home fitness pools for customers around the world, but also fosters a healthy working environment, demonstrated by yet another conquered triathlon.
