Health and fitness

In the hectic business world it's often hard to find the time or motivation to get fit, but we all know that health and fitness are important. Training with others is a lot easier than going it alone. Your company team can plan to train for the London Triathlon together.

Lots of working professionals have taken up triathlon – it's the UK's fastest growing sport and each year more and more people take part in the London Triathlon – the world's largest triathlon. 2006 – the 10th year of the event – saw around 8,400 people swimming, biking and running, as individuals or in the team event. For over half the participants it was their first triathlon, but many say that it certainly won't be their last!

So, why not encourage your employees to get fit, learn to work together as real teams, enhance your company's image and raise money for a great cause – all at the same time.
