Get on your feet, stretch, and begin moving. The key to completing any race is the first step and you my friend are the only one who can make it happen.
What do I need to get fit in Goa?
Goa is one of the most pristine locations to perform any sort of exercise. However, any location should not be a problem.
A comfortable pair of shoes and socks: You may purchase these from one of the several sports outlets. Don’t go by brands or advertisements. Purchase footwear only after easing your feet into it and ensuring they wrap your feet and provide adequate support.
Bright coloured and appropriate clothing: While running or walking you have to ensure that you are visible to the motorist, especially if you’re exercising on roads.
Clothing made of synthetic materials helps in allowing your body to breathe, sweat efficiently and regulate core temperature.
