If you have had a break from regular exercise over the summer or indeed if you are starting a workout programme there are ways to make getting back into it easier.....

1. Don’t Quit!
You’ve just had break from exercise and it can feel like starting out fresh all over again with sore muscles and tired minds holding you back. For most people this is the time when they decide to quit, DON’T!
Push through the barrier, the first weeks are always the hardest but when you see the progress you’ll make month after month it make it worth the effort in the end.
 
2. Don’t Expect to Jump Straight Back In
It’s important that you realise your body isn’t going to be at the same level of fitness it was before the holidays so don’t get frustrated with yourself when you can only run for 5 minutes before you’re breathless. Stick at it and within a couple of weeks you should be back to your previous fitness levels.
 
3. Eat Clean
Nutrition and exercise go hand in hand but during the summer break it can be easy to fall off the wagon. Whether you’ve been abroad and eaten out every day or visited the ice cream van back home (did your parents tell you when the music was playing they had run out as well?)  you just have to draw a line in the sand and get back to eating clean healthy food again, no matter how hard you try you can’t out exercise a bad diet.
 
4. Hydrate 
The school break may be over but the summer heat will still be around for a few weeks yet so it’s imperative to stay hydrated before, during, and after your workout. Drink a pint of iced water about an hour before you start and keep a bottle with you during your workout and drink about half a pint after you’ve finished.
 
5. Have Fun
If you want go get in shape by using a running programme but you hate running with a passion then why do it? The fitness industry is so varied there are 100’s of ways you can get in shape the key to success is enjoying it and looking forward to your workout not dreading it!

If you are a big kid come and try The Fitness & Weightloss Playground where we make exercise fun! If that doesn't appeal why not try different things until you find something you like.  If you enjoy dancing try Zumba or Bokwa, if you enjoy swimming get in the pool! 

Whatever you do make sure you enjoy it otherwise you just won't stick to it.
