I am a 32-year-old Londoner; mother to a little boy, chronically unfit, pretty inexperienced in the realms of sport. I've enjoyed running, walking and ballet in the past (while displaying not the slightest hint of talent at any of them), but with a difficult pregnancy and the birth of my son I have been pretty inactive for a long while now.

I have always enjoyed the Olympic and Paralympic games, and having them in my hometown this summer was rather special. I ended up setting myself a challenge: between now and the Rio Games in 2016, I'd like to try my hand at as many sports off the Olympics list as possible. I'm adjusting the parameters to suit my tastes, finances and abilities; for example, I have no real desire to actually punch anyone so my foray into boxing will probably involve a punching bag. :) Of course, in order to make all this happen, I'm going to have to start by working on some basic fitness and building from there. But I'm curious to find out what this unfit body can transform itself into and do.
