About Time: You Realised Every Body is a Summer BodyBy Angelica Malin
We bet if you look out of your office window right now, it may not seem like it just yet but spring and summer is approaching – despite the bitterly cold chill in the air now. What this does mean is you’ve probably booked your summer trip away in a bid to battle your post-Christmas and New Year break blues. And just like that, your mindset totally changes – your diet and fitness regimes are on the forefront of your mind to ensure you feel like you’re looking your best. Although it might feel like a slog, focusing on your health and fitness can be fun, and you can reach whatever goal you set if you’re determined. Just remember – there is no such thing as a ‘summer body’, EVERY BODY IS A SUMMER BODY!
Research has shown that the UK’s most popular sport is swimming, closely followed by running, football and cycling – sports that we were #1 at, during the Olympic Games last year.
- 15.74 million people play a type of sport in the UK
- Over 2.5 million people implemented swimming as part of their weekly routine in 2015/16
- Over 1.8 million people in the UK love to play football at least once a week
- Interest in athletics has risen by an incredible 85% since 2005/6
“We understand that many of us are at a loss with where to start when it comes to starting a fitness journey. Getting an exercise kick can come from both the gym or a particular sport, so we wanted to show you that there is so much on offer that you could try. Your health is incredibly important, so whether you’re up for a five minute HIIT session or a full 90 minute kick about, our quiz is worth trying!”
Some of us aren’t particularly drawn to any specific sport, but would still like to maintain our fitness levels. This is a situation many of us find ourselves in, where we aren’t too interested in an activity and so don’t pursue any other form of exercise. Superdry recently created a fun quiz to determine what sport would best suit you, depending on your age, height, current exercise routine, and the more unusual: your preferred stamina, agility and team or individual sport preference.
Are you a gymnast? Or do you prefer a sprint or long distance jog? Perhaps you’ve got the knack for swinging a golf club, or smashing a tennis ball across a court?
