This year I’ve upped my fitness levels and have continued to keep up with my new year’s resolution of staying healthier and fitter. How are you doing with your resolutions, they seem like such a long time ago that we set them but long term goals are better than a few week here and there. I’ve set myself a few challenges this year and next week my first major one will hopefully be completed, climbing Snowdon. It might not seem much to some people but at the beginning of this year I was super unfit and probably wouldn’t have made it to the top at all!
There are lots of events taking place this year and I have recently started running so I will also be entering some running events this year too. One exciting event that has hit the fitness radar this year is the Reebok Spartan Race, this isn’t your typical running event as it features obstacles and you can get rather muddy but with its success last year it’s fast becoming the event to get involved in.
Here’s a little bit more about the Spartan events
Spartan Race, voted Outside Magazine’s Best Obstacle Race, is the world’s leading obstacle racing series and the first of its kind to feature timing and global rankings. With over 130 events in 17 countries during 2014 alone, Reebok Spartan Race has made obstacle racing one of the fastest growing sports in the world. The global event series features races at three distances, 5+ km/15+ Obstacle Sprint, 13+ km/20+ Obstacle Super and 20+ km/ 25+ Obstacle Beast, culminating each year in the SpartanWorld Championship. With competitive Elite heats and Open heats for all fitness levels, Reebok Spartan Races offer something for everyone. The Spartan lifestyle continues its goal of ripping people off their couches and helping them lead happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
