Masters athletics is a life style requiring discipline to do regular exercise, technique training and good nutrition. However the beauty of masters athletics is that it doesn’t matter if you miss a training session as it’s not the end of the world or that you will miss team selections. And it’s really interesting challenging your body to master new movement patterns for different events, doing gym work to maintain or increase power and meeting new people.
