Win a pair of Hoop by Coloud headphones!

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

Christian Malcolm

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.



Megan Edwards

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.



Jamie Baluch

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.
