Top tips for 2018

1. Commitment
2. Motivation
3. Persistence
4. Accountability
5. Acceptability
6. Moderation
7. Enjoyment

1. Commitment
Commit time and energy to your fitness and nutrition goals. Your goals won’t be achieved half heartedly – the rewards will be worth it!

2. Motivation
Be motivated to the cause, after all this will positively impact both your physical and mental health. So be excited for change and the direct and indirect benefits that will come as a result.

3. Persistence
Change won’t happen overnight. Persist with your efforts and you will be rewarded.

4. Accountability
Be accountable for your actions. If you miss a workout or have a day that wouldn’t be considered the healthiest, be accountable! It’s also important to recognise that your goals will take longer to achieve when you go off track.

5. Acceptability
If you go off track accept what has happened, reset and move on. Don’t let a day run in to three days then run in to a week.

6. Moderation
Enjoy everything in moderation – Extremes are not sustainable! When we enjoy food and exercise in moderation we can maintain this in the longer term and the results are healthier.

7. Enjoyment
Enjoy the exercise that you are doing and keep it varied! Try new classes, workout with friends or get outdoors with your family.
