As the dust settled in Glasgow after the Commonwealth Games 2014, experts have examined the impact it was hoped to have on people’s attitude towards exercise.
The games helped to bring tourists to Scotland, but are they expected to have any impact on sport participation? Very little, apparently. Experts have predicted a small rise in physical activity but no lasting effects towards attitudes to lifestyle and exercise.
As Glasgow has the lowest life expectancy in the UK, organisers had hoped it would inspire more activity among citizens of Scotland’s largest city. However, it seems that may not have worked, which is a shame because the games cost £600m.
Which is why self-motivation will always be the key – nobody should rely on major sporting events for motivation, it will always come down to pure willpower on the part of the individual.
If you have made the decision to do more exercise, get more involved in sport, or simply increase your activity levels, you need to know how to do it. A fitness boot camp is a fantastic way to kickstart a new lifestyle regime.
Here at Northern Bootcamp we are experts and helping you find out what you can do and then we give you the tools and knowledge to be able to do this back home, when you leave our camp.
This ensures that the lifestyle changes are not short lived, like the sporting events but will stay with you forever, helping you to lead a more active and healthier lifestyle. Our fitness boot camp is a great way to get you feeling good and having fun at the same and we also offer activities that most gyms cannot.
