Now, more than ever, is it so important to look after our mental and physical wellbeing and setting a fitness goal can be a great way to give yourself that boost you’ve been looking for.
Virtual challenges are on the rise, and a brilliant way to keep yourself motivated, whether you are setting yourself the goal of a new PB or simply need something to work towards in getting out and moving. We’ve compiled a list of national fitness challenges that are sure to get you going!
