Shannon Aldridge has competed in the Indoor Triathlon at Fitness Plus. He encourages even those without triathlon experience to give it a try. “The first ever triathlon I ever registered for was at Fitness Plus,” he says, “It is small enough that you are not intimidated, but big enough to be proud of your accomplishments. It was a very good choice and I highly recommend it!”
