We know everyone has different personal goals for what they would like to achieve physically.
It could be taking on 10,000 steps a day, climbing a mountain, running, a danceathon, cycling or walking a set distance. We encourage you to set your own personal challenge and do it your way, and we’ll be here cheering you on all the way.
Need some inspiration?
Climbing - work out how many stairs you would need to climb to reach the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, or choose the height of an iconic building.
Dance-athon - set the challenge to dance for 6 hours straight, or 12 or even 24 hours of continued dancing if you’re feeling brave.
Swimming - set a distance to swim over a month, or set a challenge to swim 100 lengths in one go.
Cycling - could you ride 300 miles in a month, or complete a fantastic UK cycling route?
Walking - pick your month and take 10,000 steps a day. Use your phone or fitness watch to track your steps.
Running - you could take part in a 10k run, run a marathon across a month, or really turn it up a notch and run a marathon one day.
