It's a training thing: Football

We are back with more #itsatrainingthing stories delving deep into the intrinsic motivation of athletes across various sports. Next up, Football players Jarred, Josh and Liam who play for Hythe Town FC.


Jarred enjoys both the physical and social aspects of training. It’s a chance to have a laugh in the changing rooms, catch-up with his teammates but also work hard and push his performance to the next level. He’s also keen to set a good example for the younger members of the squad by carrying out his role and responsibilities, ensuring he doesn’t let the team down.

For Josh, the squad have great chemistry because they’re all good friends. Despite, only meeting in the pre-season, they have bonded over the course of the season which has helped to improve performances.
