Siddhant Malhotra: Triathlete, Filmmaker, Purpose Ambassador

Meet Siddhant Malhotra, an ad filmmaker based in New Delhi, India, who found his passion for triathlon and running in 2019, transforming his life in ways he never anticipated. Fed up with traditional gym workouts and struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Siddhant decided to give running a chance. Little did he know that this decision would evolve into a transformative journey. Endurance sport became more than just a fitness routine; it became a way of life for Siddhant, helping him overcome life's challenges, manage stress, and build mental resilience.

How his Triathlon Journey Started

Siddhant faced two significant challenges during his training journey. Overcoming his limited swimming background required extensive time in the pool, focusing on technique and mental preparation for the long distances. Additionally, as a working professional in the demanding field of filmmaking, balancing work commitments and extensive training sessions posed a unique challenge.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, when the world came to a standstill, Siddhant like many, confronted the fragility of life. Determined to pursue his dream of becoming an Ironman, it was during this time that he embraced triathlon training. His dedication over the years that followed led him to complete his first Ironman 70.3 in Dubai in 2022, and since then, there was no turning back. Siddhant's commitment to his training culminated in a remarkable achievement when he finished his first full Ironman in Copenhagen in 11 hours and 47 minutes.

Siddhant's  Commitment to Purpose

Introduced to Team Purpose earlier this year, Siddhant became a Purpose Ambassador due to his positive experience with Purpose's triathlon wear. He said the brand's tailored approach to South East Asian bodies and its suitability for humid climates impressed him. As an ambassador, Siddhant aims to raise awareness within the running and triathlon community about Purpose's products so they too can improve their training.
