It's half way through the year, it's cold, you're busy and it is the time of year that all new years resolutions have been forgotten!! How can you break that RUT and get back into a positive mindset, feel healthy from the inside out and start to condition your muscles to look lean and toned before SUMMER hits??? See below for our TOP TIPS on getting back into shape for summer.
- SET GOALS - whether they be old ones revised or completely new goals. A Harvard study found that those people who set goals are TEN TIMES more SUCCESSFUL than those who don't write goals. This can be applied to every aspect of your life, whether it be fitness, health, or something else. If you don't set a specific goal and put a date on it, that goal simply remains a dream....Goals related to health and fitness can be specific to an amount of weight you want to lose, or a certain body fat percentage, they can be to reduce alcoholic drinks by 5 / week, it can be no takeaway for 3 months, or to get to the gym for 3 one hour sessions every week for 3 months. Be creative and see what goals you can set yourself!
- REASSESS YOUR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH - Small changes have massive effects. Start with something simple, like reducing your meal portion size by a 1/4 or 1/3, or add an extra cup of salad or vegetables with your lunch and night time meals. Are you making sure you have two pieces of fruit each day for your snacks rather than a chocolate bar? All these small things add up to big changes in both physical and mental health. Do your mind and body a favour and change one small thing TODAY!! If you have no idea where to start with your food, consider the services of a NUTRITIONIST. They have a lot of experience writing up successful WEIGHT LOSS plans.
- FIND A TRAINING BUDDY - Whether you hit up a work mate, or start a convo with a fellow group fitness member at your gym, there are lots of opportunities to find gym buddies. Having someone to work along side you with exercise will help you to be re-inspired and motivated to push through to the end of the year. If you can't find a training buddy, consider a PERSONAL TRAINER. Personal Trainers are highly valuable and skilled at getting you the RESULTS you desire QUICKLY.
