How do I get in shape for summer??
The most commonly asked question…
And these are the things we always advise ⏬
Quit eating junk food – Seems pretty obvious but you would be surprised. Many people think if they come to the gym 3 days a week they can carry on eating rubbish all day long. I’m afraid to tell you that often isn’t the case! 🍔 ❌
Plan your Week – Staying organised and planning your sessions during the week will really help with motivation and holding yourself accountable. Plus, let someone else know and then they can hold you accountable too. A BIG help is bulk cooking at least one large meal for the day (e.g lunch). The moment nothing is prepeared, and you’re hungry… is the moment you reach out for something convenient which is rarely the best thing. 📆
Hike up your Neat (non exercise activity) – Taking your dog for a walk, getting off the bus 1 stop early and taking the stairs instead of the escalator are all ways you can up your non-exercise activity.
Resistance Training – Regular sessions will improve your strength and fitness but also your posture, sleep, bone density and help to maintain weight loss, boost metabolism and fix joint pains. A lot of benefits!
Get Plenty of Sleep – Sleep deprivation creates hormone imbalances, which will increase your appetite. Not to mention lack of sleep leads to fatigue and under recovery which creates an uphill struggle.
Be Consistent – The key to success! If you restrict yourself the chances are you will fall off the wagon and go back to your old ways. Find whatever works for you & stay consistent at it. Even if this means it takes longer to reach your goals, at least you will sustain your results.
