Have you made any New Year’s resolutions? If so, what are they?
What do you want to achieve in 2014? For some, it’s losing some weight, to get fitter, to stop smoking, to be more positive or happier, maybe to get organised. Well, I can help you with some of those things if you put your mind to your achieving your goal/s.
Be more organised by putting all the class dates in your new diary, get yourself up at least 2 hours before our morning classes, eat a healthy nutritious breakfast so you’ve got energy.
You may want to organise your fitness clothing and stuff (incl your mat, weights, resistance band etc) the night before too so they and you are ready to go.
Make sure that you have child care organised if necessary and if you’re attending our evening classes, ensure you organise your time, nutritional needs (incl water) and that you arrive in plenty of time feeling relaxed, positive and ready to work out and enjoy your sessions with us.
Let’s move forward in a positive direction, take charge and take responsibility for our fitness and health.
You will reach your goals and dreams but you have to believe it

No matter what our motivation may be, if we are not realistic, we will not fulfil our goal (Dalai Lama)

6 pack abs are not necessary to be fit, healthy and to look good. Get yourself fit and healthy and you’ll look and feel great anyway.

Write a good story – tomorrow is a blank page in your diary – fill it with positivity and love.
