5 Fitness Challenges You Must Tick Off

by The Know

It’s always great to have a fitness challenge in mind to help you stay motivated and keep variety in fitness regime. Here are 5 important fitness challenges we recommend you try.

Off road run

If you have already ticked off a half marathon and want to keep on the running train, then consider an off road run. The softer surface of off road running reduces the impact on the body, while still maintaining the intensity. You’ll get to take in some great scenery as you go.

Cycle challenge

For those who ride regularly you already know that nothing beats an early morning ride on the weekend. But the sense of achievement you get when you finish a cycle race is something different again. Cycle challenges are great to do in a team or as an individual.

Yoga retreat

Practicing yoga regularly can be challenging when you have busy work schedule. When you’re on a retreat you’re able to attend multiple classes a day allowing you to see progress and the positive results more quickly. You will return back to everyday life refreshed and more energised.

Squat and Press up Challenge

The squat and press up challenge is perfect for around the work place. You can set a daily target, or simply aim to do as many as you can every day. Our favourite however is to put on Moby’s  ‘Bring Sally up’ song, and get into the press up position. Every time the song says bring Sally up you press up. Every time the song says bring Sally down you lower yourself down into the press up. You have to hold every position until the next instructions… feel the burn!
