Don’t Leave it too Late…

What are the common mistakes people make about setting those goals in spring – weather’s getting warmer and they panic and want to lose weight too fast etc?

• People try to go onto any ‘fad diet’ they can get their hands on, nothing beats clean healthy unprocessed foods. We have so much variety of fresh fruit and veggies at this time of year
• People start out to hard too fast with the training and end up getting injured. Pace yourself and build into the program.
• Most leave it too late… make the start NOW to make it all easier to achieve your fitness goals
 
What are ideal kinds of physical activities/exercise for spring here in Canberra?

• Anything outdoors. It is a beautiful time of year for outdoor training of any description (Boot Camp, running groups, bike riding, tennis etc)
• An movement will get the natural endorphins running and the desire to do more will increase naturally.
• Look for things that you as an individual enjoy ( too many to list here)
• Ideally you have a mix of some sort of strength training for healthy muscle tone, bone density and to aid in burning up unwanted bodyfat, along with a variety of cardiovascular training to help ward off any unwanted diseases, increase heart and lung health and of course burn up the fat.

How important is it to find an activity you actually enjoy?

• It is vital to find something you enjoy. If not you will get bored or frustrated very quickly and end up giving up ( as it is only about 7 – 9% of the population will make a start to a Spring Fitness Regime. Then only about 3 – 5% will stick to it), so it is vital to find activities that you enjoy to prolonge your fitness endevours.

What are the pros and cons of exercising with a friend?
Pros
• Accountability to that friend
•  more fun exercising with a friend
• Push each other harder
• Brings out the competitive spirit
Cons
• Reliability (having to meet them and they don’t turn up)
• May not train as hard as you do
• Might be more of a distraction/hinderance than help to your training
• Different levels of fitness (you might have to wait for them or vise versa)
8. How can people stay motivated to be physically active?
• Pretty much all the points above
• But people really need to find something they enjoy. Over time it will become a habit for them and they will just make it part of their busy life and schedule.
• Set your training around a time that is suitable. Don’t set the alarm for 5am if you are not a morning person, because you will be just kidding yourself and fall off the wagon quicker than you got on!!
• Join a group of likeminded people in your area. You will be more likely to stay physically active if you are with a group of people that are also working on the same goals.
