Top Reasons Why We Love Competitions

It’s no secret that we love a good competition at Tally Ho. Every workout is like a mini competition in of itself. While we compete with ourselves every day, it’s always fun to come together for something a little spicier. In preparation for our in-house competition on Oct. 23, we’re rounding up some of our top reasons why we love competitions. If you’re still on the fence about whether you want to compete, we hope these reasons will edge you toward a full-hearted “yes!” 


  1. It’s an opportunity to test your limits

If you’ve been struggling to hit a new PR, a competition is the perfect environment for making it happen. When we know others are watching and a team is depending on us, we’re able to summon a little more strength and endurance than a regular workout. Competitions are great for reaching new heights in our fitness! 


  1. Community development 

Even if you’re not competing, there’s something magical about cheering on others while they attempt something really hard. Community, after all, is built on a group of people pursuing a similar goal. Even if we’re on different fitness levels, the goal is the same — to get better. 


  1. Increased results leading up to the big day

Even though the competition only lasts one day, the mental preparation builds up over the weeks leading up to the big day. If you’re not signed up for The Main Thing, we highly encourage you to hop on board for the next competition. Knowing that a competition is looming helps us dial in our workouts and nutrition. It gives a reason to stay healthy and keep our goals in check. 


  1. Post-competition feasting

Speaking up nutrition goals, nothing feels better than indulging in that rare cheat meal after a big sweat session. Trust us, the giant burger or row of tacos just hit different after PR’ing a snatch or running a couple miles. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy the grub alongside your best gym friends. What more could you ask for? 


If you’ve been wondering whether or not you’re competition ready, we hope this post persuaded you to sign up. Even if you’re not where you want to be yet, know that the “competition life” is for you. As long as you’re getting better and getting outside your comfort zone, you’re doing it right!
