Keep It Up!

keep it up 2016 fitness goals

We all get super excited about the new year and our goal to get fit and healthy. We spend tons of money on fitness gear, clothes and gym memberships only to give it up come March.

So why not try something different to help you, keep it up!!

Kickstart your children’s confidence (if you have kids, if not your niece and nephews will do)

Do this by incorporating a physical activity into their everyday routine. It can be to play catch, dance while doing chores around the house, or a fun weekend activity like cycling or walks in the park. Exercise should be fun so turn it into a family activity rather than a chore.

Be Mindful

Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment. Pick an activity where you normally zone out and try to stay focused and in the moment while doing it. This is not easy but, it will contribute to a happier state of mind.

Find Your Fitness

Instead of investing in an expensive gym membership, buy a skipping rope, you can pick it up anytime during the day and skip for about 20 minutes it works the whole body or try a HIIT workout. Find some great workouts on Tone It Up

Take The Right Vitamin Supplements

Instead of buying up the whole health store, focus on what your body really needs. A multivitamin will top you up your health-supporting nutrients that are lacking from your diet. Omega-3 will boost your immune system. You can incorporate this through eating fish such as salmon and tuna.

Healthier Snacks

Fill up during the day with fresh fruit and unsalted nuts.

Sleep

Not getting enough sleep is bad for your skin, mental wellbeing, weight and immune system. Try to sleep for at least seven to eight hours a night. Create a routine by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day. Also try to switch your phone off before bedtime.

Invest In A Juicer Or Blender

Saving on a gym membership means you can invest in a good blender or juicer for healthy juices and smoothies. Combine your favorite fruits or try kiwi, banana, spinach, cucumber, ginger and lime for a nutritious drink.

Getting the most out of your exercise Routine

getting the most of your exercise routine

We all know that looking good takes work and to achieve that we need to work out to make our bodies to be better, faster and stronger. To obtain a healthy body and achieve the best during our work outs we also need to take care of our bodies. That means having the right tools, a balanced diet and adequate restorative time ensuring that we get the most of our workouts.

Look The Part

Did you know that your workout gear can have a direct impact on your health that is why slipping into a new pair trainers can immediately make you feel healthier before you even begin to break a sweat. Old, worn shoes are one of the most common causes of injury especially if you are a runner. Always consider your foot type, is it flat, neutral or high-arched, when buying your trainers. Also pick clothing that is slim-fitted and designed to absorb sweat making you more comfortable when you run or workout.

Track Your Progress

You can track your progress with a wide range of fitness apps that monitor your activity levels and advise on your diet.

Fuel Your Fitness

Make the most out of your fitness routine by giving your body the fuel it needs so drink 500ml of water to avoid dehydration an hour before an intense workout. It is also a good idea to fill your body up with slow burning carbohydrates, before your workout. Feeling low on energy before your workout, eat a date or a handful of raisins as they are fast-burning natural sugars that will give you a quick energy-boost.

Workout Boosting Supplement

We all know that a balanced diet is important when it comes to health and fitness, but supplements can give you the essential ingredients that you are lacking. If you’re athletic you want to include Vitamin B in your diet to help your body break down carbohydrates, whilst Vitamin C will help you metabolise them and protect your immune system. Vitamin D will assist your body to absorb calcium, promoting healthier bones.

Recharge Is Important

Your body needs to recover after intense exercise, so allow it adequate time to repair. Protect your muscles with a supplement that will increase your endurance and protects your cells. Fresh ginger in boiling water are a great natural remedy for aching muscles or try a spoon of turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory.

Before taking any supplements do speak to a health adviser for advice on which supplements are the best for you.
