Fitness Spot

So today in our Fitness Spot Blog we are discussing how to make sure you fit your work out into your day. We understand that by the evening, after a long day in work, it’s difficult to be motivated to start a work out. We suggest don’t wait till the evening. Conquer your work out in the morning when you are fresh and ready to go.

Here are a few quick tips to make sure you don't miss your morning workout!

There is some research which has said that people who do morning exercise tend to work out longer and harder than those who exercise in the afternoon or evening, which means more calories burned. We know that not everyone is a morning person and it can be hard to have that “get up & go” attitude first thing in the morning so here is a few tips to make your morning exercise possible.

1. Avoid the Morning Hurry
Lets try avoid using the “I can’t find my runners, sports or socks” excuse and prepare the night before have everything laid out and ready to go. This allows you stay in bed that little bit longer and makes it quicker to get out and go.

2. Eat right.
Because you will be exercising first thing in the morning, we do not want you doing this on an empty stomach as it isn't good for your metabolism or your energy levels, so the trick is to pre-

make a little morning snack and keep it in the fridge so you can quickly grab it to eat while getting ready.

3. Don’t go to Bed too late.
Don’t stay up too late. Being well rested is important and will help you get up for your workout. No snoozing and avoid that snooze button. The trick is to but your alarm clock on the other side of the bedroom, it’ll force you to get up.

4. Get Excited!!
Check the class timetable and choose an exciting and inspirational class to look forward to. Or if music moves you, create a new workout playlist to motivate.

5. After workout treat
Lets all face facts, the only reason we are working out to get fit and keep in shape & eat what we like! So make sure to reward yourself after a workout with a nice breakfast.  It is easier to work out knowing something nice and hot is waiting for you at home! But try keep the breakfast someway healthy!!! Protein aids recovery, don’t forget that!
