TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WAWV/WTWO) – A local gym encouraged members to implement healthier habits into their everyday lives by a new event.

April 2nd the Vigo County YMCA hosted its first-ever indoor triathlon.

The triathlon consisted of a 300-yard swim, 5 miles on the stationary bikes, and a 1.5-mile run or walk on the treadmills.

Participants had the opportunity to complete this event solo or as a team of 3.

YMCA Health and Wellness Coordinator Macey Elden said the YMCA’s goal is to introduce different activities to community members.

“The community came together as a whole today and just cheered each other on, it warmed my heart,” Elder said.

Elder said the YMCA plans to host more triathlons in the near future.
