Hitting the slopes

Sports and physically demanding hobbies will require you to stay fit through the year. Taking up one such hobby is a great way to keep your fitness anchored and purposeful. Aesthetics may be your main reason for exercising, but being driven by an external goal is a fantastic way to stay motivated.


Triathlons, skiing, golf, kayaking, judo, rock climbing and a myriad of other sports that can be taken up as hobbies require you to stay on top of your fitness all year round.

Fitness related hobbies are a great motivating tool and are highly recommended to keep you in shape on and off season. Because of the social aspect of these hobbies they are a great way of building your support network that was covered on Day 10 of this 31 day fitness kick start.

With healthy wishes,
