Take the World Cup footie fan Fitness Challenge
Want to enjoy the World Cup and get fit at the same time? The new NHS Choices Football Fan Fitness Challenge is the perfect combination.
The tool helps you improve your health online in a competitive challenge in which you ‘play’ for your favourite World Cup and domestic teams. A mini health assessment gives you a ‘transfer value’ which can be boosted by following health tips and daily challenges helping you - and your team.
Give it a go - honestly, it sounds daft but it's good fun. It will definitely fill the empty hours between games (and once England get knocked out). The MHF is backing it and so is the Football Association. Some of the challenges even involve this website, malehealth, so it's a fun way to find your way around the site too.
An FA spokesperson said: 'Community action programmes, like the Football Fan Fitness Challenge mean everyone can get involved in a way that suits the variety and demands of their modern lives.'
