Athleti.ca recently celebrated our 2 month birthday, and we couldn't be more pleased. We have the best customers in the world! You have been amazingly kind to us in our day-to-day dealings and in your encouraging feedback, which has been collected on our customer testimonials page. Your great attitude may have something to do with the fact that you are all Canadians, but I suspect the real reason is because you are all healthy, active, and in-gear!
So, exactly how health, active, and in-gear are you? Here is what you shared with us in our recent survey:
- ~60% participate in half-marathons
- ~45% participate in full marathons
- ~40% participate in road bike races
- An impressive ~20% participate in Ironman distance triathlons!
- Honorable mentions: mountain biking, swimming, multi-distance triathlons, XC ski, hockey, kick-boxing, P90X, and even Parkour!
An amazing ~75% of you participate in at least 5 organized athletic events per year!
~60% of you train over 10 hours per week! That is outstanding!
You are all super-busy in your daily lives, it's amazing that you find so much time to train and compete, and I know first-hand how much credit you deserve for your efforts. But the results are clear, not just in your physical accomplishments, but also in who you are and how you act toward others. I firmly believe that the world would be a better place if everyone trained as hard as you!
Thank you for your business, and your kindness.
