The name IRONMAN conveys with the abilities to endure, testing one’s mind and body to its limits and discovering if you have what it takes to be your best.
The IRONMAN race is composed of a 3.8 km Swim, 180 km bike and 42.2 km run that will test the confines of even the fittest individuals in the world.
Lyndsey Fraser and Andrew Ross of SALA ACTIVE recently experienced what it takes to earn that title in IRONMAN Taiwan 2015. On a difficult course that tested athletes to their limits, the team endured and finished the event with excellent results. The highlight of the event was Lyndsey Fraser’s exceptional performance at the event winning both her category and the top amateur female in the event.
With this win it has qualified her to compete in the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, Hawaii in October 2015. This is an exciting year for Lyndsey as she is really stepping into her stride with wins at home in the Challenge Phuket 70.3 and the Subic Bay 70.3 and gaining a trip to theIRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in Austria in August 2015.
With these wins it has placed Lyndsey first place in the Ironman AGR for 25-29 year olds for 2015. Keep an eye out for Lyndsey and Andrew at SALA Phuketwhere they regularly come down to train and provide fitness consultations and group sessions for guests. They will be moving down to Phuket full time in July where guests will be able to train and book health consultation sessions with them through the hotel.
What does it mean to be an Ironman?
• You are never so relieved to be at the start of a marathon.
• You go to bed before your 5 year old does.
• You spend more time on your bike then in your car.
• Pushing yourself well beyond what you thought possible, and you realise that anything is possible!
• You have accomplished something that 99% of the world’s population cannot imagine doing.
• Doing a 3 hour bike ride followed by a 45 minute run and thinking it was a “short day”.
