It’s ok to admit that some of us need new challenges and goals to keep our health and fitness programme moving forward and progressing. Taking part in an organised sporting events can provide you with the incentive you might need to give your training real focus. These events will not only provide a focus for your training and something to work towards, but they can also act an excellent motivator.  Training with a friend or partner can spur you both on and keep your motivation levels high as you work towards improving your performance ahead of the event.

Training for a specific sporting event can also vary and mix up your usual workouts, especially if you opt for a new sport / challenge. For example, if you are a keen runner or tend to workout in the gym why not try a swimming or cycle challenge for a bit of variety and a fresh challenge?
