20 steps to a healthier you with GloHealth - Step 7: Join a team!

Joining a running club or some type of fitness club/team is a great way to keep fit says Galway-based Health and Fitness expert Jessica Cooke.

But there’s another advantage says Cooke - exercising with other people is a very sociable and highly enjoyable way of working out.

“You meet loads of people and also get a workout in! It also helps take the focus off the actual workout, as you'll be doing something you enjoy," she says.

Whatever you're into, whether it’s the occasional tennis match on a Saturday morning, or a full Triathlon experience, there's a club out there for everyone.
