Why We Exist
Our primary aim, our reason for existing, is to help you maintain the impetus and the enthusiasm that drew you to choosing a healthier, fitter, fuller and more satisfying life. And if you’re still on that path and new to this ‘fitness lifestyle stuff’, our desire is to save you a lot of costly mistakes and wasted time.
We want to help you grow your fitness and health fast, with progressive articles and insights that other magazines may not be offering. Think the latest findings on nutrition, on training methods – on living your life better!
That’s what we strive for in our lives everyday and we want to share all this amazing information with you!
The people who read Go Multi are typically attracted to exercise, health and adventure. They believe in self-improvement and are not afraid of failure. They demand nothing less than being fit at all times (even in Winter!).
They spend a lot of their leisure time outdoors, often travelling to exciting places and challenging themselves with epic tests of endurance and character. Quality in the products they choose to purchase – after thoughtful consideration – is important to Go Multi readers. Our editorial places great emphasis on honest appraisals and telling our readers about the best products, events and experiences – as well as some of those to avoid.
If you’re new to all this, before we suggest that you ‘Go Multi’, you’re probably going to ask: “What the heck is going multi anyway?”
That is when you do at least two physical activities that train your cardiovascular, muscular and nervous system. You don’t need to do triathlons or even do back-to-back disciplines to be ‘going’ multi. As soon as you start doing a second sport, you’re a multi-sporter. It doesn’t have to be on the same day; so long as you are working at different activities.
If you swim and walk, that’s going multi.
If you mountain bike and paddle, that’s going multi.
Time for another definition: Endurance sport.
This is any activity where distance, terrain and time are your chief challenges, and you have to use muscle power to move from start to finish.
For the racing snakes, for an endurance sport race to be classified as and endurance event, we expect that the event must be timed and allow individuals or teams to race others over a fixed distance. Based on that quick definition, surfing, hang-gliding, chess and water hockey are not classed as endurance sports!
We do feature some of the fringe sports from time to time, but only as an interest piece for you to know about.
At the end of the day, endurance sport is not about racing for medals, glory or money. Arguably 99% of participants do it for just one reason – because it’s there, because it’s fun and healthy and because it makes them feel good and adds meaning to their lives.
So, you’re probably already a true multi-sport warrior, fighting your own daily battles against warm duvets, little red men with tails on your shoulder telling you it’s OK to be a couch potato, never mind fulfilling the challenges of family commitments and work.
So congrats, you’re probably already part of the Go Multi tribe. Welcome to our family!
