Train with a team for benefits that go beyond the playing field.
It’s a familiar tale. You joined a gym to get fit but, after an initial burst, you haven’t worked out in weeks. You tried switching to yoga – that was too slow for you. And CrossFit? Too fast. Perhaps it’s time to try a new method of motivation.
Team sports offer the same physical benefits as solo exercise plus added incentive to socialise with teammates and not let them down by skipping a session. Recent research has shown that team sports could be as good as, if not better than, solo exercise for your health.
