My advice for anyone who is new to fitness is to make your health a priority, not just an option. Committing to fitness is about reorganising your priorities and putting yourself higher on the list. Remember that everyone starts somewhere – if you can get off the bus a few stops early or take the stairs instead of the lift, you’re on your way.
If you don’t know where to start, consider finding a workout buddy or joining a group fitness challenge. Working out with others is a great way to get your fitness journey started, help hold you accountable and provide motivation to stick at it. Challenges like SWEAT NATION is all about building long term, sustainable healthy habits that last. There is incredible power and energy that comes from women working out and creating healthy habits together, whether in person or digitally.
Consistency is something we all struggle with from time to time. Motivation comes in waves. In the beginning, and even to this day, sometimes I don’t feel motivated to workout but I chose to do it anyway. The more consistent you are over time the easier it becomes. My advice is to just take it one day at a time. Instead of focusing on the big picture (which can be really overwhelming), take each workout one rep, one lap or one circuit at a time. Breaking it down like this makes it more manageable and less daunting. Remember that every little bit counts and celebrate the little victories along the way.
Getting stuck in a routine can be frustrating, especially if you’re putting in the time and effort to work out but your results are plateauing or you’re no longer feeling satisfied after your workouts. It’s important that you are enjoying the way you’re working out and if not you may need to switch it up. What I love, and why I’m so passionate about my PWR programs is the way that they are designed – they blend proven and effective strength training exercises and techniques in a unique way that keeps it interesting and maximises the results from your time and effort in the gym or at home. A typical PWR session in the gym takes about 40-50 minutes to complete and consists of 5-6 different phases – warm up, activation, pyramid, superset, an optional burnout and a cool down. I’ve broken it down into muscle group splits so that each session you are training a different area of your body, with the splits shifting and building as the weeks progress.
