Looking for inspiration and challenges to take on in Northampton?

The new year is well underway and half way through February (can you believe it!!!) we thought we’d check in and see how you’re getting on with those new years resolutions?!

Have you managed to keep spinning those plates? Or have the already been pushed aside for the old habits and patterns?

If you’ve managed to keep them going, a tip of the cap to you!!

If not, then you’re with the vast majority of us, the question is, how do you get back on track? The changes you proposed were based on a true reflection of where you want to be, so rather than just allowing the changes to be pushed aside, to be revisited on December 26th 2019, why not think about how to get back to them now?

We wanted to try and help those of you who promised themselves that they would do more exercise, complete a challenge or improve upon previous efforts.

We have compiled a list of local events that are happening in Northamptonshire throughout 2019. Why not have a read, pick one of the events, and aim for it!

Even if you don’t make it, the act of training, planning and being disciplined with yourself over a period of time will have a huge effect. If you do achieve it, then the benefits are obvious, your self esteem will sky rocket.

As well as this yearly list, we are also going to give you a monthly breakdown and more detailed list of all sorts of events that are happening around Northamptonshire. We will also be getting fellow Move4 family members to tell us about their own favourite runs, rides, walks, anything really as long as it reflects a all of the things we discussed above.

If you would like to write a review for us, please get in touch, we would love to hear about the best places to get active around Northamptonshire.
