Did you know you cannot spell challenge without the word change.

At Sport and Recreation we understand that you will set yourself personal challenges when in the gym. Be it getting your first pull up or losing that next pound towards your weight goal.

Understanding our customers led us to develop monthly gym challenges. Whether you are a lone wolf or a social butterfly in the gym, why not add our monthly challenge to your workout one day.

Some benefits to accepting a challenge:

  • Reminding yourself that you are always stronger and more capable than you give yourself credit for.
  • Makes your achievements even sweeter.
  • Sharpens your grit.

So the next time you find yourself in the gym with a few minutes to spare before or after your workout. Find a member of our team and take on the monthly challenge.
