6. Wiggle Your Toes Day
In general, improving your fitness is a solitary pursuit. You may have a group of gym regulars you see frequently, but it’s rare for you to all be doing the same exercises at the same time. While this personal journey has its own rewards, sometimes you want to test yourself against others. Many people enter a 5K or other race to see how far they’ve come, but the most exercise-obsessed among us may want to seek a greater challenge. If you fall under that umbrella, consider these over-the-top events that aren’t for the faint of heart.

While obstacles vary from event to event, you can expect to see a few signature challenges on every course. These include “Arctic Enema,” a dive into a dumpster filled with ice water; “Electroshock Therapy,” a trudge through a pit of mud with live electrical wires hanging overhead; and “Everest,” a climb up a quarter pipe slicked with mud and grease.
