Struggling to find time and energy
I've always enjoyed exercise but as a parent of two young children it's been difficult to find the time and energy for it in recent years.
I know that if I keep myself fit and active I'll have more energy so it's been great to find something that's kept me motivated while also connecting me with friends and family.
I've tried to make my exercise routine fit in as naturally as possible with my lifestyle and other commitments.
I make sure I walk the children to school (15 min fast walk) then jog on to the gym from there. I work locally then jog back to school for pick-up time.
I've set up three Teams so far:
We see each other at the school gates every morning and have a quick joke about who's done most (or no) exercise and who's leading the team!
My family don't live locally so I don't see them as much as I'd like. TeamUp has given me a nice way to have some friendly competition each week!
I enjoy the gym and get there when I can. I've set up a Team with a few friends I go with and we post pictures of our workouts when we log our points!
I'm loving TeamUp! It's a brilliant way to stay motivated and connected to friends and family. I love seeing what exercise everyone else has been doing through the week and it really puts pressure on me to make sure I hit my points.
I also love that I get a fresh start every Monday. If I've had a tough week and just haven't quite made it I know I can just start again the next week.
I also like that all exercise counts. It gives me the flexibility to know I just need to move, however I want so if I just need another 20 points for the week I can just get a quick 20 min jog in and I'm there!
Emma was one of TeamUp's first users in the pre-launch (Jan 2022) and we hope she keeps moving for years to come!
