We are a group of like-minded individuals who regularly come together for swimming and endurance run training. Some of our members just run. Others just swim and then there is a large group who train for both swim and run. The individuals’ goals range from ‘getting going’, maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle to competing in community events and more.
We’re an inclusive group with women and men ranging from mid 20s to early 70s. Some of our gang have been with Wellbeings for 20+ years and are still loving their involvement.
We welcome all and celebrate everyone’s achievements, whatever they may be.
Wellbeings was established in the early 2000s, as a women’s only triathlon course for novice athletes. During this time, we taught hundreds of women how to be active through swimming, cycling and running. For many, completing a triathlon was a bucket list item achieved.
After a few years we were approached to conduct a similar program for men and so Wellbeings for Blokes came about in 2004. Using the same model as the women’s courses we coached many men to complete their first triathlon.
Over time there became a need for ongoing training because the women and men who had completed the inroductory triathlon course wanted to maintain their fitness and work towards new goals. As a result, Wellbeings X-Training transformed to become a year-round program catering for a wide range of competencies and fitness levels. The X in our name refers to ‘cross’ training. We have a multi-diciplinary approach to health and fitness.
Why train with us?
Our members participate in our programs for many reasons – some still train for triathlons, others for Park Runs, community fun runs and even international marathons. Others just simply enjoying exercising with other folk and being part of a group who support, inspire and encourage them!
In the summer months, many of our members participate in open water swim events, from 1 mile to 25 km. More recently we have seen a growing interest from the team in participating in trail running and swim-run events.
Join us to improve your fitness and have fun with some welcoming and friendly people.
