HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hands up, if you decided to be more fit and active in 2019? Or if you lost your mojo over the festive break and wanted some fresh inspiration to kick off the new year? Well…keep reading!
In August of 2018, I launched the #BestMe Motivation guide; a 4 week free challenge aimed to give fresh ideas and make fitness fun again. We had an overwhelming response, with over 3,000 people taking part and I knew that I had to do it again.
So with it being January, we are being bombarded with every diet, detox and transformation programme. I wanted to offer something different, with the emphasis on not what you might lose, but all you can gain from embarking on a fitness journey which puts physical and mental health as the primary focus.
Here is a little excerpt from the introduction in this year’s guide:
“So, unlike 99% of fitness programmes starting in January, this isn’t about weight loss, body transformations or before and after pictures. It’s about health gain, because I believe there is so much more to health and fitness than seeing a change in your external appearance. Therefore, I want us all to use this as an opportunity to re-connect with mind and body so we can enjoy the multitude of benefits an active lifestyle brings, such as improved mood, improved fitness, strength, confidence, increased energy, better posture and so on!
Let’s focus on using this as a way to stay consistent, try new things, get out our comfort zones and find lots of new ways to stay motivated beyond our aesthetic goals.”
Once again, I have been overwhelmed by the response the guide has had. It has truly affirmed my goal to make fitness an accessible choice for all. Each exercise has been carefully planned to be fully adaptable to YOUR schedule, YOUR life and YOUR needs; be it at the gym, at home or at the park. Again, I have decided to go for three workouts per week, as I still wanted the guide to act as an attainable yet flexible commitment to your fitness goals.
Introducing… #BestMe 2.0! Like before, this guide is to ease ourselves outside our comfort zone, help us achieve new goals, try something new and try to push our motivation beyond aesthetic goals alone.
This is especially different this time around, because as part of my “EAT, TRAIN, HAPPY” mantra, I have collaborated with the Nutritionist, author and Intuitive Eating expert Laura Thomas PhD and Psychologist Kimberly Wilson. Laura has her own section in the guide discussing an introduction to intuitive eating, whilst Kimberly is sharing her advice on how to cultivate your Mental Wellbeing this year.
This is NOT about transformations, diets, or before and afters.
