Tifosi Sports a call for entries to become an ambassador for some of our brands was met with great enthusiasm and hundreds of applicants. Tifosi was thrilled to announce the final list of 29 ambassadors in April, and now it is our pleasure to introduce you to the guys and girls who represent Tifosi’s brands when they compete in numerous events across the country and abroad.
In this article, as a part of a series about our new ambassadors, we introduce Catherine Claxton.
What is your favourite sport?
Running and cycling.
What do you love most about your choice of sport?
I love being outdoors and being able to train with friends.
When did you start participating in this sport and what made you get into it?
I started cycling in 2016, after I joined a new company. They offered a cycling club and put together a team for the Double Century. I used running to cross train and fell in love with it.
What is your favourite piece of Compressport apparel and why do you use it?
My favourites are definitely my running visor and hoodie. My visor is extremely comfortable and my “go-to” cap. My Compressport hoodie is not only really warm, but looks great too!
How do you stay motivated – especially during the winter and over holidays?
It is difficult to stay motivated when work is stressful, and the winter months approach, I like to stay motivated by entering a race to work towards. I also find that training with friends helps a lot, because they keep you honest and accountable to show up!
What advice would you give someone who has just started their fitness journey?
Consistency is key. Even a small amount of effort consistently applied on a daily basis will help build a good base for fitness. Try not to compare your times or speed to other people’s, it’s your fitness journey – don’t feel discouraged by comparing yourself to others.
