Boy, have we got an action-packed fitness round up for you this week. Britons are pros when it comes to ‘excusercising’, although want to get fit now the summer has gone. Go figure! And there are some great events to get involved in that we’ve come across!
General fitness announcements
We recently did a post on ‘plogging’ – the latest international fitness phenomenon – and now Fitbit is encouraging you to do your bit! Plogging is the latest craze, whereby you collect rubbish while you’re out and about running or jogging.
All you have to do is take a photo of you plogging and upload it to their Facebook status. They’ll donate £10 to WasteAid for every plogging photos that are uploaded into the comments section of their post.
Fitness events to attend
Keith McNiven, former British and national wrestling champion and founder of PT company, Right Path Fitness, is launching ‘Date-ercise‘. It’s basically speed dating for those who love to keep fit and don’t take themselves too seriously. The classes will be a circuit-style, with members moving around the zones. Apparently you burn up to 700 calories whilst meeting 12 potential love interests.
The first Date-ercise class is set to take place on the 10th October at Rich Mix (London). Tickets cost £25 per person and there will be healthy cocktails at the end for mingling.
Whilst the first Date-ercise is aimed at women meeting men, the team say that there are LGBT events to come!
For those of you wanting to try something new, or if yoga has always been a thing for you, Wanderlust 108 is coming around quick. Wanderlust, in association with Adidas, is a a global yoga and wellness festival featuring the world’s only ‘mindful triathlon’. Unlike your usual triathlons, this one is made up of a 5k run (or walk), 90 minutes of yoga and a 30-minute guided meditation.
Alongside the mindful triathlon, there are many other things taking place for you to immerse yourself in. For example, there will be live music and DJs, 117 classes to attend, artisanal vendors and local foods on offer.
Wanderlust is taking place in Battersea Park, London, on September 15th between 7:30am and 5:00pm. Tickets range from £14.95 to £91.08. All Jogger readers can get 10% off their premium tickets by using code WLGBJOG. When you click the green button to select tickets, enter the promotional code on the top right.
