With January being the start of a new year and this year being a new decade, what better time than now to try something new? Join us in our ‘JaNEWery’ campaign and try a new activity this month and who knows, you might find yourself signing up for a half marathon or becoming a master yogi.
Throughout the month of January we want to encourage everyone to try a new sport and step out of their comfort zone or their regular routine. If you’re a triathlete, why not give yoga a go? If you’re a keen runner, why not try tennis, or maybe head out for a swim? Whatever you decide, KYMIRA is sure to have you covered with our extensive collection of multi functional infrared garments.
It is always beneficial to stimulate the body in new ways and training yourself in new skills can give great results and avoid a fitness plateau. Challenging yourself to complete new exercises can also help to address imbalances and weaknesses you may not have otherwise recognised, and incorporating cross training is an excellent way to ensure your different muscle groups get equal amounts of attention.
Trying new sports will not only benefit you physically, it can also benefit you mentally as it’s an opportunity to meet and engage with like-minded people, therefore enriching your social life. This can lead to more confidence overall, hopefully resulting in you wanting to take on new challenges in other aspects of your life, such as going for a new job or meeting new people.
Not sure what to try, or where to go to try something new? We’ve put together a shortlist of activities to try this month with some useful links to help get you started:
Riding a bike gives you the same cardiovascular benefits as any other aerobic exercise, with the added benefit of being able to do it whilst enjoying the great outdoors, and more importantly, as a mode of transport. If you're also wanting to decrease your carbon footprint this year (and boost your vitamin D intake!), cycling is a great replacement for those short journeys you would have otherwise hopped in the car for. Why not try cycling for ‘JaNEWery’? Maybe to commute to work, or to head out with friends at the weekend? If you don’t want to head out alone, find a bike ride near you with Let's Ride.
If you find you love it and want to continue cycling, here are a few of our favourites:
