With the summer gone and holiday season approaching, fitness may be out of mind. But that doesn’t mean it has to be. You can keep fit and healthy this holiday season by getting involved in fitness for a cause.
That way you’ll be training for and participating in an event that you feel strongly about, whether the actual event is this fall, winter, spring, or summer. Training for a cause will motivate you to do more fitness this fall.
Here are some ideas of fitness activities I’ve seen as part of a cause:
- Ice Skating
Any kind of fitness style that you can do can be done for a cause. And about any sport for fun or as a more serious sport can be done for a cause. There are many different causes you can get involved in, such as research for birth defects, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, or various types of cancer.
My mom told me about a timely idea of someone involved in fitness for a cause. Ed Roshitsh is training for a Run Across America to raise money and awareness for House of Heroes for veterans.
Check my post on Top 10 Ways to Perform for a Cause for more ideas.
Happy training for a cause! 🙂
