Where are you #alwaystraininguk?

So you love training?

It’s time to prove how much, by training anytime, anyplace and anywhere.

At GH Training, we love to inspire people to exercise, but let’s be honest, training can sometimes become a little dull and monotonous. We want to change all that!

Welcome to the official site of the social media campaign and competition - #alwaystraininguk.

Tag your Besties on Social Media

So, here’s the deal.

Next time you’re out and you sense a good opportunity, get someone to video you training - in a random place & situation - and post the footage to Instagram or Facebook. (see above video)

Remember to TAG your besties and share all your #alwaystraininguk videos - including our Instagram handle @alwaystraininguk and @alwaystraininguk on Facebook.

If you Email us your #alwaystraininguk clips, we’ll not only share them on social media but if they’re good enough, they might make the monthly video compilation.

On a serious note

Although the #alwaystraininguk competition is just for a bit of fun, there is a serious side to it.

Pre-hab exercises (aka injury prevention exercises) are massively under-rated and under used by people training for marathons, half marathons or any sport in general and we hope that your inspirational #alwaystraininguk videos will highlight the importance of exercise outside of your usual training programme.

To see what we mean, check out this blog post on the “Three reasons why everyone should do pre-hab exercises” or check out our “Pre-Hab video” on YouTube
