Sweat for a Cause: Why Your Next Fitness Goal Should Be Charitable (and How to Crush It!)

Updated: Jan 18

Dust off your sneakers and get ready to sweat for a great cause!


This year, I'm challenging myself to reach a fitness goal, but with a twist: I'm doing it to raise money for Cancer Research!



Here is why i'm combining fitness and fundraising?


  • Double the motivation: Setting a fitness goal is already exciting, but adding a charitable element takes it to the next level. Knowing you're making a difference while you exercise adds an extra layer of purpose and keeps you pushing forward.

  • Feel good, do good: Exercise releases endorphins, making you feel amazing. But helping others releases a whole other wave of happiness! Contributing to a cause you care about is incredibly rewarding and adds a deeper meaning to your fitness journey.

  • Inspire others: When you share your fitness goals and fundraising efforts, you inspire others to join you. It creates a ripple effect of positivity and healthy habits, making a bigger impact together.

So, what's my goal?

5 x 20 min HIIT workout a week, which with 2 kids and a full time job is going to be a challenge. 6am club it is.


What is a HIIT you ask. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): involves alternating short bursts of intense activity with periods of rest or low-intensity recovery. These intervals can range from 15 seconds to 8 minutes, with recovery periods typically being the same or slightly longer. Basically so I can breath between exercises :-)


Here are a few reasons I picked this.

  1. I want to feel comfortable in my skin this year. That is my main goal and I know that by moving my body and getting my heart rate up it will sculpt and shape those areas that make me feel good.

  2. It's 20 min 5 days a week, short bursts of exercises I know that I can fit in either in the morning or before bed.

  3. I have family and amazing friends who are suffering from cancer so the more I can do to help with this amazing cause the more I will do.


How to pick yours.

The most important thing is to choose a goal that you're passionate about and that will make a difference in the world but also something that you know you can achieve and will be motivated to do so.


How can we help each other?

1. Checking in with me and others around you who have goals to achieve.

2. Let me know what your challenge is and I will do what I can to help you achieve it.

4. And you can simply asking friends and family to share this and your post to raise awareness.


Let's get moving and make a difference together! I believe that small actions can lead to big changes.


Let's work together to reach my fitness goal and make a positive impact on the world!


P.S. Don't forget to tag your friends and family to challenge them to join you!



I wish you all the best in your fitness journey and fundraising efforts!
