UK training and social weekend?


  • Oct 12, 2012 12:50 PM GMT
    Hi guys,

    I've been thinking recently that whilst I train at the gym alone, I am struggling for motivation.

    So I've had an idea that why don't likeminded guys look to get together and go on some weekends away to different parts of the country with the aim of training and socialising/exploring somewhere new whilst there.

    This could be a weekend in the countryside where we focus more on running/cycling/hiking training or a weekend in a random UK city where we take advantage of local gym facilities for the weekend but also relax and chill.

    Just an idea so far so nothing confirmed in terms of dates/locations/types of training but any ideas are welcome.

    Get in touch if interested and we can discuss further

    It's a great idea. But, the problem with most great ideas is the implementation. Who is going to organize it, announce it and not be terribly disappointed when half of those who signed up can't make it for one reason or another? It'll take a lot of patience and you'll have to do it for a long period of time in order to generate enough interest to keep it going. You'll get a lot of Rah! Rah! but not that many who will participate. It provides a lot of personal satisfaction when it finally comes together and is well worth the effort.
