And just like that, your mindset totally flips, as your diet and fitness regimes begin to ensure you feel like you’re looking the best. Although it might feel like a slog, focusing on your health and fitness can be fun, and you can reach your goal if you’re persistent! Just remember – there is no such thing as a ‘summer body’, EVERY BODY IS A SUMMER BODY!
Research shows that the UK’s most popular sport is swimming, closely followed by running, football and cycling – sports we succeeded at, at The Olympic Games last year.
But did you also know?
● 15.74 million people play a type of sport in the UK
● Over 2.5 million people implemented swimming as part of their weekly routine in 2015/16
● Over 1.8 million people in the UK love to play football at least once a week
● Interest in athletics has risen by an incredible 85% since 2005/6
However, some of us aren’t particularly drawn to a specific sport, but would still like to keep fit. And that’s a catch 22 situation many of us find ourselves in, where they aren’t overly interested in an activity and so don’t pursue any other form of exercise. Superdry recently created a fun quiz to determine what sport would best suit you.
Are you a gymnast? Or do you prefer a sprint or long distance jog? Perhaps you’ve got the knack for swinging a golf club, or smashing a tennis ball across a court? The quiz considers the basics: your age, height, current exercise routine, and the more unusual: your preferred stamina, agility and team or individual sport preference.
“We understand that many of us are at a loss with where to start when it comes to starting a fitness journey. Getting an exercise kick can come from both the gym or a particular sport, so we wanted to show you that there is so much on offer that you could try. Your health is incredibly important, so whether you’re up for a five minute HIIT session or a full 90 minute kick about, our quiz is worth trying!”
