Mostly A’s – Team Sports:
A team sport requires the most commitment on this list, and you are simply ready to take on that challenge! You are super into meeting new people or being with friends. You can commit to weekly meetups or games and wouldn’t miss it for the world and to drop out mid-season would make your blood boil! As well as getting some social time you are releasing all those good endorphins when you’re exercising, go you!
Team Sports We Reckon You Would Love:
Mostly B’s – Boot Camp or Group Classes:
You love a good sweat-sesh, but you are prone to flake if your best mate or next level tinder date wants to grab a drink, and that’s fine! Boot Camps or Group Classes are likely to run weekly at different times that can be suited to you and your lifestyle. You also are exercising with either a group of mates or strangers, and it doesn’t matter if you aren’t there sometimes as you’re all doing your own thing!
These could be ideal for you:
Low commitment recreational team sports (e.g meeting up with mates to play a game of basketball)
Pay by class exercises
Mostly C’s – Leisure Exercise or Singular Classes:
Low commitment is your go-to! You are either always on the move, or your mind is. You want a taste of everything, or you want nothing to with exercise – and that is also totally fine! Exercise to you is not something that needs to be a ritual. The best way to disguise activity is to do something fun while you’re exercising, like a kid having their veggies hidden in foods they trust. Doing one-off classes is beneficial to you as it is low commitment and based on your availability.
