How would you describe Trivium Triathlon in one sentence?
Trivium to me is a family, with like minded and goal-orientated people constantly motivating each other to reach new limits. Massive thumbs-up to our coach, Magda Niewoudt, to create such an environment, where you don't want to miss group sessions for the fear of missing out (FOMO).
