Two key focuses of my blog are Athletics/Sports and Health/Wellness. Many people work out regularly at a gym and or in solitude. To shake things up and challenge themselves, some people take on fitness challenges. The following contributed post is entitled, 3 Fitness Challenges To Take On.

Having a fitness challenge that you can aim for will not only keep you determined to train but is also very rewarding once completed. In fact, having any challenge in life is a great way for you to keep yourself stimulated and entertained.
When it comes to fitness challenges, there are a whole array of events or tournaments that you can enter and compete in. The challenge is deciding which one is best for you and also which one is achievable. After all, you don’t want to set yourself up to fail! Below we have put together three different fitness challenges for you to take on.

Run A Half Marathon
Half marathons are a great achievement and something you should try if you are looking for a challenge. Every year there are many half marathons taking place all over the world, so why not take a look and pick one that really interests you? You could also get your friends to join in with you and run for a chosen charity and look into getting some screen printing done on some T-shirts that you could all wear. If you have already run a half marathon then why not look at a full marathon?
Take On A Obstacle Course
There are a whole plethora of obstacle courses that will not only challenge your fitness levels but also your mental abilities. Tough Mudder is a great example of a course that will challenge you in many ways. Most courses involve you having to take on a variety of challenges from swimming in ice-cold water to jumping from great heights. If you want to get competitive, there are time trialled ones, with the winner getting a prize. Obstacle courses are again another thing that is great to be done with your friends or family. Some you can stay overnight as part of the fun.
Take On A Cycling Challenge
Whether you are into cycling or are new to the sport, there are a whole array of cycling challenges that you can take on. Depending on your ability you may want to try an endurance riding challenge and attempt the cycle a few hundred miles. Or if you are new, you could attempt a short distance ride and cycle under 100 miles. Whatever the distance, why not take a look at the events happening local to you and give it a go. If covid has affected your events, there are many challenges that are being done virtually.
Overall, any challenge you take on will be great for your physical and mental health. Whatever challenge you choose to take on, try and get your friends and family members involved as this will keep you more motivated. Make sure you look after your body when taking part in a challenge as you don’t want to injure yourself.
