Clermont recognized by Outside Magazine as a top training destination for triathletes

RELEASE DATE: June 8, 2012

CLERMONT – With its challenging, diverse terrain, South Lake County has long been touted as prime training grounds for fitness enthusiasts and athletes who compete in a broad range of sports. Those sentiments were echoed in a major way as Clermont was recently named one of the top training destinations for triathletes by Outside Magazine.

Clermont, one of four cities around the country selected, was chosen because of its pleasant weather conditions, an abundance of bike routes and its array of healthy dining options.

The National Training Center (NTC), located at 1935 Don Wickham Drive in Clermont, which the magazine dubbed “a 300-acre athlete's playground,” was recognized as the area’s premier training facility. NTC offers triathletes everything they need to achieve peak conditioning, from an Olympic-sized pool, a track and field complex and fitness center, to performance testing, trainers and physical therapists.
