Looking for a new sporting hobby to get passionate about can be tricky. There's always a fear that you may overcommit and over-invest in clothing and equipment, before realising it's not for you.
One way to tackle this is by checking out sports that don't require deep pockets or a big financial commitment to get involved with – only invest in the gear or technical products once you are sure that this is the sport you want to stick to. This can also apply to gym memberships and group classes for your new hobby.
Consider joining virtual workouts, or free trial sessions. It's a great way for first-timers to get involved without committing to anything in the long term. You won't feel nervous trying out something new for the first time in front of people you don't know, and can still receive positive feedback from your coach or instructor.
You could also pick up sports that don't require so much finances if you only practicing it at a beginner level, like running or hiking.
