Updated: Feb 24, 2023

1. Create a weekly plan

Look through your schedule for the week ahead and plan out where you can fit your workouts in, and how long you will have to train in each session. Map out when and what you will aim to attend for your strength and cardio training- remember to include adequate time for rest between your workouts. Tick them off as you complete them to mark the achievement.

2. No effort, no result. Progress, not perfection. No sweet without Sweat

It's normal to be a little sore when you get going, you may be working muscles you haven’t worked in a long time and moving your body in new ways. If your muscles are feeling sore, a light workout and some movement will often help!

3. Focus on frequency over intensity

It’s important to get balance in your training. Include strength for muscle building (this helps to burn fat and raise your metabolism), and cardio for fitness (this helps with heart health). Ideally 2:1 strength to cardio. Focus on quality in your sessions rather than duration: a good way to start is with little and often, rather than long workouts that leaving you feeling fatigued for days. Consistency is key, to create change your body needs to be challenged consistently.

4. Train in a team

Whether it's a Functional small group training class or working out with a friend. Research shows that training in a group is the most effective way to train, and it's a lot more fun.

5. Stretch

Stretching feels great and can help you maintain and improve mobility. Take 5 minutes out of your day to perform some stretches to help relieve tension and improve flexibility.
