5 things that make exercising easier

Exercising is that thing that everyone needs in order to keep your bones strong especially as we age, keep you fit so you can make a quick dash out of the rain without having a heart attack and generally staying healthy.

But sometimes all of the science still isn’t enough to get you to a 5am class or keep consistent with your training.


So here are 5 things we make sure happens in our classes and PT to give you the maximum chance to achieving your goals:

  1. A supportive community. This is a priority to feeling welcomed. You want to know you are in a safe environment when you walk into the gym and see a group of people to appear to know what they are doing. Friendly faces and other members who can help you through your class. Eventually these people become your friends.
  2. A trainer who knows you and what you need. We offer group fitness with a special gift – that the class is tailored around your injuries, limitations and abilities. We believe that everything can be modified so that you can keep your routine because habits are what create success.
  3. Fun. Very rarely do we want to do things that aren’t fun. So in each class you will see us laughing, smiling and making the most of our time together. Sure, exercise brings us together, but we can do more than that. The social events we do regularly keep the fun and atmosphere alive in our studio.
  4. Variety. Just like your food, our classes offer variety every single time. It’s good for your body and good for your mind. Variety is a key component to progression and the fun factor.
  5. Goal setting. It can be really helpful to have a trainer help you set realistic goals for you. Sometimes, actually most times I find our members don’t know their own potential, so a conversation with your trainer can be insightful in that they can help you see the best version of you.


We love having new people in our studio and seeing them progress!

What happened to my new year’s resolution?

So we are 6 weeks into the year and the motivation behind the new years resolution has gone, and you might have started to think it’s all doom and gloom and “I’ll start again next year”.

The stats behind the success rate of people actually achieving their new years resolution is 20%. Pretty low really.


There could be a few reasons:

1.. You proudly stated your resolution as you knocked glasses with your friends around 12pm on the 31st of December…

2.. It was the same as last years meaning you already felt doomed from the start.

3.. You didn’t create any new habits to support your new goal.


It could have been 1 or all 3 of these but the important thing to note is, it’s ONLY 6 weeks into the year, meaning you have 46 more weeks to achieve your goal.

So how can you make this year different? Simple. Change your habits and create a solid plan to move forwards.


Atomic Habits is a great read to help you understand how habits work and how to apply them. Be specific about your goal and understanding what you are willing to change or do in order to achieve your goals is also important, because with every new habit requires a level of attention to different your daily routine.


For example if weight loss is your goal, how much weight and by what date? Is that date realistic? And why? Why do you want to loose the weight? This is a game changer because if the reason is not big enough or has no emotional connection to you, it’s not going to be the reason you say no to the cake and yes to the salad.

Next thing is to work out how much as you willing to do to achieve the goal? If you currently attend the gym twice a week, can you attend 4 or 2 group sessions and 1 PT session? Something has to change if you want something to change right?!


You can grab hold of this new years resolution and have a fresh start by starting today. It’s actually not too late and no you don’t have to wait until Monday!


Hit the gym tonight, eat fresh food for your next meal, do something to get you back in motion and heading in the right direction.


You can do this!


And ……  Enjoy the process!
