We know that when the new year comes around we have many reasons to start our year off in an active way. 

However, we also know it's not always easy, so we've asked our fitness professionals and personal trainers for some advice and top tips to help us get started and keep going. Click on the tabs below to find out what they said.

  • Want to lose weight for an event coming up?
  • Want to lose weight to be able to wear clothes that don't fit anymore?
  • Want to lose weight to feel better and improve your energy levels?

Advice from Dan Lee, Physical Activity Lead

If you want to lose weight research suggests early morning workouts could be part of the solution. Exercising before breakfast can force your body to burn off excess fat stores helping to set your body up for all day fat burn. Our centres are open in the early morning, so you will always have the opportunity.

We know that the best way to lose weight is to increase exercise and monitor our food and drink intake.

  • Some people find that free apps like MyFitnessPal really help them understand the calories they consume each day.
  • Activity tracking apps also help us understand if we are being active enough - there are plenty of free ones out there.
  • Following government's recommended activity and daily food allowance guidelines gives us a target to start with. 

Whatever your goal you can talk to one of our fitness professionals in our gyms. They will be able to suggest some things to try and personal training sessions are really good to keep you motivated.

Try this:

Try this in the gym: Jump on a treadmill and start with a fast walk. Take your time and build up to go longer distances faster as your fitness improves and weight starts to decrease.

Try this in the pool: Start slow and build up. Increase the amount of time you spend being active in the pool each time you come. Then increase the intensity of your swimming.

Try this in the studio: Try a class like Zumba. The music and energy will keep you going and you'll feel the difference very quickly.
