6 ways to get back on trackSpa
Everyone falls off track with their health and fitness and that’s okay. You need a break. This gives you an opportunity to reinvent the way you see health and fitness. Admittedly this can be hard, sofa living and takeaways sound more desirable than getting up for the gym at 6am and tucking into a green smoothie. But believe us when we say you will feel so much better for it! We're here to kick start that healthy living again with 6 Ways To Get Back On Track.
The hardest part of getting back on track is getting to the gym. The gym itself is a breeze compared to the motivation you need to get up and go. Everyone has a busy life and finding time to workout can be challenging. Schedule workouts in your day like a meeting- something you can’t miss and you've already planned out time in your day for.
Getting bored with your workout is a massive demotivator. Mixing up the exercises in your routine is crucial for both mental stimulation and physical progress. We’ve followed Les Mills and their approach with our fitness classes by mixing up our moves and music every quarter to ensure people don’t get bored and keep seeing progress. For workout inspiration, search for workouts online or try our 30 different class types.
Don't start with the ‘all or nothing’ approach, resulting in cake cravings and the like. Think of a more sustainable approach to healthy eating as a 90% and 10% split between healthy wholesome foods and ‘treat’ foods. You deserve a treat with hard work and completely eliminating all ‘unhealthy’ foods will only lead to unhealthy cravings.
Food shopping is full of temptations if you're on a budget and want to keep the basket as healthy as possible it’s always useful to choose which meals you want to cook for the week before you go shopping. Plan your meals with a list of ingredients in addition to your usual items. This will help you stick to a list and you will be less likely to stray away.
Finding someone to push and motivate you is key in keeping up your exercise regime. A personal trainer is not only a scheduled workout but teaches you correct form and can set a structured plan of exercises if you are undecided on what is best for your goals. Our personal training offers a variety of packages for individual sessions, group sessions and even wedding preparation.
Doing your workout in a group makes it less of a ‘chore’ where you can compete and make it fun. Simply set up a circuit on the gym floor or try out our workout of the day of the whiteboard. Alternatively, we offer a social training package allowing you to save money on personal training sessions in a group.
