Training for events : Macclesfield Triathlon on bike

Each year at Lisa Foley Fitness we have a calendar of Events that we actively encourage clients (family and friends) to take part in. Where possible we ask that clients also use this as an opportunity to raise money for our chosen charity

Many clients surpass even their own expectations by stepping out of their comfort zone and fully embracing the opportunity to do something challenging. For example, last year we participated in Urbanathlon, Wilmslow Half Marathon, the Manchester BUPA 10k run, 5k sizzlers, and various sprint triathlons!

If the feeling of sheer exuberance felt straight after the event is not enough (!) then the added bonus is that these events are often followed by a social gathering at the nearest restaurant or pub, where we are able to refuel in good company and reflect on our achievements.

Events Diary from September 2010

Training for events : Family at Gawsworth run

Below is a list of events that we are encouraging clients to get involved from September 2010 to August 2011. The events list will be updated as schedules are released. Planning your participation in events is great from a number of perspectives:

  • Firstly, it gives you a goal to work towards!
  • Secondly, it brings a real sense of achievement.
  • Thirdly, it’s often a sociable atmosphere, and for events that attract a number of clients we usually arrange some well-desered nosh and  food drinks afterwards.
  • And finally, it gives an opportunity to give something back by fundraising for one of our partner charities or one of your own.

Also notice that as well as organised events we plan to arrange some * LFF fun events throughout the year which are open to anyone who wishes to come along. These will be individually priced nearer the time and any profit made will be given to our chosen charity.

Also for tips and advice regarding events see our Events section of our Blog.
