Top tips from the experts to keep your motivation sky high!
Gillian Reeves, National Group Exercise Manager at Virgin Active UK, says:
1 Change begins at the end of your comfort zone: challenge your body in a new and different way and you will achieve something you didn’t believe you could before.
2 You never know what life is going to throw at you – whether it’s having to bend further or reach higher, so use your time exercising to prepare yourself for those ‘what-if’ moments.
3 Don’t look back in a year’s time and wish you’d started earlier – the time is now; there is no time like the present.
4 If you’re exercising and feel like giving up, focus your attention on continuing rather than stopping. Remember that you’re still there and you’re still going – so focus on getting the most out of your move and you’ll hopefully do even more reps!
