The brand-new Sport Relief app will unlock exclusive celebrity content and ensure that every step counts across the week. Coming soon to the app will be content featuring British Triathlon rising star Olivia Mathias as she takes on a bespoke workout circuit that will prepare you for the GO TRI Gym Challenge.
The GO TRI Gym Challenge consists of three elements – row, bike and run – which can be completed in one session or three separate sessions in the gym:
- 500m row – jump onto a rower, set your level, and off you go; once you have completed the 500m row, make a note of it so you can upload the time on the GO TRI website
- 5km bike – using an exercise bike, set the seat at your perfect height, get comfortable, and start cycling for 7.5km (please note that if your bike is measuring in miles, you are aiming for 4.66m); once again, when you have completed the bike element, make a note of the time
- 5km run/walk – this is the final element of the challenge; if you can’t run on a treadmill, don’t worry, you can walk the distance at your own comfortable pace
Gym users across the country can take on a 500m row, 7.5km stationary bike ride, and a 1.5km run on the treadmill and input their times online at gotri.org/gymchallenge to see how they rank against British Triathletes, celebrities and other GO TRI-ers.
