Organisation is key!

12 Aug

Monday morning… perfect time to plan your week if you haven’t done it already.


The key to sticking to your fitness goals is to be organised! You need to plan your workouts, and then stick to that plan. Seems so simple doesn’t it, so why doesn’t that always work?

The reason it doesn’t always work is, often we do actually “plan” our healthy week but things get in the way such as meetings, work, family and social events that may interfere with it all and before you know it, the week is over!

The trick is to plan your workouts for a time when you are least likely to be interrupted. Sadly for some, this may be in the morning before work! In my experience as a personal trainer, I can tell you that most cancellations come in the evenings. Don’t kid yourself into planning a workout for the evening if you know that you are very likely to be called to a meeting or work event. You will never get anywhere. If you want to reach those goals, you may have to lose an hour’s sleep in the morning but it is a small sacrifice to make in order to achieve what you want in the long term.

Treat your workouts as meetings with your boss that, once in the diary, you absolutely cannot cancel. Exercise must come high up on your priority list otherwise you will never get to where you want to be. You have got to be totally committed and the first way to do that is to actually turn up to your planned workouts… and then you can focus on how to make the best use of that time!

Make a plan, commit to it and you will see results!
