Thing is, we can all find time for the things we love and these days, with online workouts at our fingertips the old excuse that you can't make it to the gym just doesn't cut the mustard.

Working Out May Not Be The Best Idea For Rapid Weight Loss

Going to the gym isn’t always the best thing for weight loss. “What?” We hear you say. It’s true. Obviously, it helps. But there are far simpler things that you can do to shake the weight off and keep it off for good.

A lot of people sit down and work all day. They hit the gym for an hour and then go home and sit some more. This doesn’t exactly relate to a high-energy lifestyle. Adding a gym routine into your life is a great thing,  but to keep the weight off, studies have shown, you need to change way you live.

Don’t worry, the changes aren’t huge. They’re pretty simple, really. And here they are.

How Long Until You See Results from Exercise?

One of the things that peeps want to know when I train them is HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE until I can see some results?

Where's Your Fun?

Often people say to me that they don’t workout because they find it boring, they hate the gym, they hate certain types of exercises.  I get it. Running and I are not friends. Rowing and I don’t mix. End of story.To a certain extent you’ve got to enjoy it otherwise you won’t stick with it! (Seems obvs doesn’t it?).

I’m NOT saying that you’ll love every workout you ever do. Sometimes you’ll be sucking it up just to get it done, but, if you’re trying to fit a square peg into a round hole, you're not going to stick with your exercise plan for that long and that means less than stellar results and frustration all round. Neg.

Who's Got Your Back?

One of the reasons we find it so difficult to implement a new fitness or lifestyle plan or to make any kind of habit change at all is that we lack the structure and social support to keep us on a roll. Fact.

Do you relate to this?

Maybe you’ve got friends who love to go to a pub and have quite a few drinks on a Friday night. How hard is it to be with them and not have a drink? Pretty tough!

Why You NEED New Shoes (And Other Fitness Hacks)

BEFORE YOU GET YOUR KNICKERS IN A TWIST: This post isn’t about being perfect 100% all of the time. Or never enjoying the things that you love. I’m a huge fan of moderation and finding your balance. However, most people who are struggling to see results have certain triggers that trip them up too regularly, so before they know it they’re not making the progress they want (or even getting started) and end up feeling frustrated. Ever decided you’re going to cook something healthy and wholesome, but then you realise you’re missing one ingredient, something small and seemingly insignificant (like tomato paste or a random spice), but because it’s missing it stops you in your tracks, so instead you order pizza?

(We’ve all been there.)

Why Faking It is a Good Thing

Ever catch yourself saying that you hate exercise? That eating healthily just isn’t you? It’s hard to change ourselves when we don’t believe we can change, but the truth is that anyone can change with a little effort and the right game plan.

Look at me; I went from a 20-something party-girl extraordinaire who couldn’t cook a damn thing and hated exercise with a passion, (unless it involved dancing on a bar) somewhere to a 30-something international health and fitness coach and women’s fitness expert.

I Do It Three Times A Week. You?

Of all the ways to get in shape it seems to matter more how often you do something rather than what do you. I’m a three times a week woman - minimum, which means I like to move my body and get sweaty at least 3 times, otherwise I’m treading water.

If you’re not doing it 3 times a week, but you’ve got a trainer or a gym membership or a fancy boutique fitness all-access pass, are they wasting your time and your money?
