Verity Russo, an Australian writer and keen sportswoman, together with her adventurous English boyfriend Mark, recently came to Florence and checked out Training Lab.

Verity was a writer at the Australian Triathlete Magazine and earlier this year completed a half ironman distance event called Challenge Melbourne.

Part of her role at the Australian Triathlete Magazine was to document her months of training and preparation leading up to the big event as well as her account of race day.

The next big challenge is a 6-12 month European cycling adventure.

The Training Lab exercises will help make it easier!

Good luck!
