We constantly seek a new challenge and it can be hard to know where to turn. If you’re looking for a new activity then why not attempt one of the following eight?
You’ll be able to peruse a number of activities, some that help you enjoy the outdoors, others that test you mentally but all that could be fun for you. If you have the thirst for competition then maybe you’d like to take part on a competitive level but if not there are still plenty of exciting practices you can participate in. Some of the sports are pretty obvious and some you never knew existed, with the inspiration of this year’s Olympics you might just receive that push you need.
England recently had to endure more tournament heartbreak as they exited the Euros to Iceland. But despite this you might want to try your hand at the sport (or feet on this occasion). It’s never too late to give it a try and it’s not an expensive sport, all you need is a football. If you need boots, shin pads and kits then check out Sports Direct promo codes.
Another popular sport and Rio 2016 will have most likely attracted even more attention to the noble art. The point scoring is more intriguing than many recognise, if it’s a discipline you feel you could enjoy then check out some local gyms in your area. There are white-collar competitions that offer safe options to take part in a one off bout, there’s local boxercise meaning no fighting just training and then there are amateur gyms that allow regular competitions and the potential for a professional career down the line.
Something for everyone, get out and suck in the lovely fresh air. You can do this locally at a park or take it a little more serious with mountain walks, hills and even the peak district. Get your hands on coats; base layers, sticks and most importantly walking boots with Craghoppers discount codes.
Cycling is another sport that England love in the Olympics. Sir Steve Redgrave flys the flag for the nation as he represents Great Britain in this amazing sport. Find yourself a bike and get riding on the road or out on the mountains with options for all. Act on Chain Reaction Cycles promo codes.
There are many forms of climbing, with some taking this concept to the extreme. There is a such thing as rock climbing out in the wild which can be dangerous for obvious reasons, but there are also many local clubs too. Find one close to you and get some instruction on how to begin this extreme activity.
If you’re looking to test yourself mentally and compete on your own why not take up a disciplined practice such as kung-fu or karate? You will learn so much about yourself whilst getting fit in the process.
Another fun way to stay fit and it’s not expensive either. You could join your local swimming baths and go a couple of times every week. The intensity is dependant on your aim and you could even just enjoy the facilities without testing yourself physically.
There are various sites around the UK that allow you to delve deeper into this sport. It doesn’t cater for everyone as you will have squeeze through tight gaps and will find yourself predominantly in the dark.
Why not try a new sport that could interest you? There’s so much out there and they’re all easily accessible. Get everything you need without paying over the odds and pick one of the 8 sports we have listed.
