I’m often asked, “how have you kept training and racing for such a long period of time?” and “don’t you get bored?”.

Well the answer to that is pretty simple: I surround myself with good people and it makes training something I’m excited about getting out of bed for everyday. Finding that club or group is like finding your athletic home.

Which brings to the point of this article. What are the benefits of training with a club? We can list a few of the obvious: Your coaches hold you accountable and get the best from you. (In a good way) It takes the thought process out of it. There is so much information out there on what you should or should not be doing in training. But let us worry about that, if you do the work, you’ll get fitter! Friendship, either forming new ones or training with guys and girls you already know. Pushing yourself to places you didn’t think you were capable.

Club environments have that effect and it helps you understand what your body and mind can achieve. Becoming a better athlete by surrounding myself with likeminded people. A phrase I quite like is “A rising tide raises all ships”. By that I mean, if one of your peers succeeds at something, then another will also see that it’s possible and follow suit. It has a flow on effect and lifts the club in a positive way. This can be a physical effort and or behavioural. Support: Clubs are here to help you on your journey.

There are many ways being a member of a club can help you on your athletic path, so come down and have a trial with ours. We are certain you’ll enjoy it.
