Race against the clock

A very simple energizer which only takes 2 minutes, which will make everyone gasp (after it) and everyone feels alive again. What gorgeous after dinner!

How it works:

The group starts to stand in a circle. Everyone holds eachother’s hand. You, as the trainer give the go-ahead sign. When you have given the go-ahead sign, the group starts to turn around three times clockwise, stop, and turn around two times counter-clockwise.

It has no meaning or whatsoever…., but it is really fun to do! And… everyone is ready to ‘learn and discover’ again.


With a large group you can also turn around only once.

Do this while you are recording the time. After the first time you encourage the group to do it faster the second time.

Outside in

A fun start for a team is this one:

This activity promotes:

he instruction:

Time: 10 minutes

Participants: 8 or more

Has to be done inside, not outside


Required materials

duct tape


The participants are sitting in splits on the ground in a circle with the faces turned to the center. The left ankle is strapped to the right ankle of the person at the left side with duct tape.

How it works:

Participants have to turn from the inside to the outside of the circle. In other words, the backs are getting closer to eachother. This has to happen without releasing the ankles.

Solution (give it straight away):

If half of the people in the circle hang or sit as low as possible to the ground, the other half can creep over the others.
