TechRadar’s Fitness Week diaries

Thinking about getting off the sofa to start your first ever workout or just got home from a marathon? We’ve published three fitness diaries from a beginner, one from an intermediate and another from a self confessed fitness obsessed fan.

No matter what your level, we have you covered. We tackled different sports and activities each day including running, swimming, cycling as well as high intensity interval training and gym workouts.
