It’s easy to see how Blue Monday got its melancholy name. The so-called ‘saddest day of the year’ falls on the third Monday of January and is when we are reported to feel at our most glum.
Whether it’s down to the cold weather, feeling ill or simply having to say farewell to the holidays - January is nobody's favourite month.
The Assault Bike is a full body piece of equipment, that we recommend for any type of training. Have a look below for a simple how to guide on what it is and how to set it up, find some inspiration on how to incorporate it into your training session, and participate in the Red Monday Assault Bike Challenge powered by Optimum Nutrition, for your chance to win some goodies. Good luck!
