How to Revitalize your training

run strong


Follow my tips below to completely revitalize your current training plan and finally get the results you desire.






Set yourself a target

This is a huge motivational factor.  Set your self goals in 4 week cycles and make sure they are realistic and achieveable.

Always be active
Seek out opportunites to be active in your everyday life. Take the stairs, walk instead of talking the car/bus.

Short and sweet
You dont always have to work out for 60 minutes.  Try to reduce the time you spend resting between exercises or increasing the intensity of your session to cut your workout time.

Early bird catches the worm
Workout in the morning so you dont have time to think up excuses during the day.  You will also get the benefit of your workout throughout the day, such as increased endorphins (the happy hormones) and increased energy.

Ask for advice
If you are unsure of what you should be doing to achieve your goals then ask for advice from someone who knows.  I’m always happy to answer any questions you may have on your current fitness programme. Get in touch.

Slow it down
When doing machine/free weights or body weight exercises, complete the movement as slowly as possible. This will make the muscles work harder so you get more from the exercise.

Snap Happy
Take before pictures of yourself in something that reveals your body shape.  As you start noticing changes and improvements take another set of pics to compare, great for motivation!

Reward yourself
Allow yourself a treat n cheat day to reward yourself for all the hard work you are putting in the rest of the week.

Don’t beat yourself up
If you fall off the wagon dont get put off, just plan for the next session.  Listen to your body and dont push too hard too soon.

Mix it up
Dont do the same session 3 times a week for 6 months. It will be a massive waste of time and you probably wont see any real results.  Try and do a different session everytime you work out to keep your body and brain guessing.  It will make them work harder and so you will see results quicker!!!
