Just show and tell us your most motivating place to exercise.
This week, we brought you news of a new type of headphones – the Hoop by Coloud. Built to complement your active self, they showcase some clever features to keep you working out whatever your regime.
They’re splash, sweat and dustproof, and have a reflective tangle-free cable for post-work, night-time running – so no excuse for not getting out and about!
Add to that an adjustable ear loop to keep the buds comfortable, a clothes clip to stop them swinging about, and colors to match your exercise kit (and Lumia!), and you’ve got your perfect keep-fit inspiration.
With this in mind, we’ve got 50 pairs of the Hoop by Coloud to give away. To have your chance of winning, submit a photo of your favorite place to keep fit and the motivating reason behind it.
This could be your local gym, an outdoor space, a different country or another location entirely!
To inspire your answers, we also asked our top athletes from our Hoop by Coloud interview
Australia is my home away from home. I love the people, I love the work-hard, play-hard attitude, and I love the weather! It’s a great place to train.
South Africa. It’s hot and visually stunning but I also felt privileged to be there. When I ran on the streets and witnessed peoples’ struggles first hand, it put my own life into perspective and made me want to work harder. I’d been given a huge opportunity to train in the country and wanted to be an inspiration to the people there. I found it a massive motivator and came back with a completely different outlook.
Sydney. Australia is my favourite country in the world. Apart from Wales! The people are sport focused, the winters are like British summers and, back when I was competing, the whole sport set-up was so much more advanced than the UK. Psychologically, it was a far-away place where I could just focus on my training alongside top-tier athletes like Colin Jackson, Linford Christie and Frankie Fredericks. I was hugely motivated there.
UPDATE: This competition is now closed.
