As children, we didn’t focus on ‘keeping fit’. Instead, we took part in activities and played games which had a positive impact of our physical wellbeing, but which we merely saw as a fun and normal part of everyday life.
As we got older, many of us began looking on keeping fit as a chore and instead of maintaining our interest in basketball or focussing on our love of cycling, we abandoned these pursuits as a fleeting teenage interest and abruptly changed tack.
Many of us joined a gym and slogged it out for weeks on end before eventually giving up because we reaped little reward for our efforts.
While gyms are an incredible amenity, they don’t suit everyone and yet many of us feel obliged to join, convinced it’s the only way to stay fit.
Keeping fit should be fun and participating in an activity which simultaneously delights and challenges you is the key to keeping on track when it comes to exercising.
If, like us, you fondly remember childhood days spent on your bike, then why not revisit your youth and hop back up on that saddle again?
Cycling is an incredible way to keep fit, a wonderful way to spend time outdoors and the perfect way to reignite your passion for a simple childhood activity.
