Things to do before turning 30

Hitting the age of 30 comes with a lot of mixed feelings. Like all of a sudden, there’s this pressure to settle down, get a “real job” and find someone you’re prepared to spend the rest of your life with. Get involved in a fitness regime.

Find a physical activity that brings you pleasure, whether it’s running, dancing, swimming, cycling or any other form of exercise, and challenge yourself.
