Fitness Tip of the Week #27 Try a Local Run

If you’re looking for a great way to get motivated towards some tangible goal, and have fun while supporting a cause, then sign up for a local run and train for it, even get a group of your friends to run it with you. People spend a lot of time by themselves just going out for a jog or hitting the gym. Why not participate in something like a local run? You would be surprised to find how many there are in your area if you look for them. Go to the running shoe store in your area and there will be all sorts of runs and races ranging from 5k to half marathons. You will be surprised to find that if you do sign up for one, suddenly you reach a new level of motivation as the excitement and anticipation of the run approaches.

It is always helpful to have a goal to work towards when it comes to fitness. Not goals like lose this much weight, but rather goals like run a half marathon or run a 5k in this time. The other great thing about many of the local runs is often the money goes to support a charity group. So how about it? Get in shape by motivating yourself towards a fun goal while supporting a cause.

"My body has not reacted well with working a desk job.  I am only 25, but have been having a lot of pain that has built up over the past 6 months...The cubicle workouts have truly helped, I cant even begin to tell much better! Thanks Scott, love the routines!" Brandon
