Here are our top 12 fitness tips to help you burn fat and calories to the max!
1. Walk or run to the gym
Walking or running to the gym is a great way of getting your heart rate up and boosting your workout!
2. Don’t skip the warm-up
In a rush is no excuse ladies…..warming up is key as it prevents injury and improves your performance.
3. Train with weights
Don’t just stick with cardio, try your hand at weights with each session. Resistance training is great for blasting fat.
4. Do High Intensity Intervals
HIIT is fantastic if you want big results in a shorter period of time. Need to be bikini ready pronto? High Intensity is the way to go.
5. Have caffeine before you workout
Enjoying a shot of espresso before the gym will make you work harder, faster and better.
6. Update your gym wardrobe
The way you look can really affect the way you feel. New year = new gear so shop our fitness range and give yourself a much needed confidence boost.
7. Change your workout
Keep things interesting and challenge your body with an ever-changing workout plan. This is great for shocking your body into burning more calories.
8. Don’t wait around for machines
It can be tempting to sit around waiting on machines, but this can be counterproductive. Change up your routine if need be and try another machine instead.
9. Try a new class
Solo workouts are great for ‘me time’, but classes are also so much fun. You may even make a new gym friend to help motivate you!
10. Stay hydrated
Never leave home without your water bottle. Water is essential to your health, and it can also prevent fatigue and prolong endurance during exercise.
11. Maximise your crunches
Wanna be ab fab? Make every crunch count and don’t relax your stomach muscles – hold the contraction even on your way down.
12. Power up your runs
Hitting the park instead of the gym? Then be sure to add squats and wall sits to the end of your run to strengthen quads, hamstrings and glutes.
