How leverage the fewer opportunities for exercise this holiday season in your favour
The holiday season is on the horizon and the party season is getting underway. Work parties, family dinners and get togethers steamroll through our fitness routines and all but the most committed may find their fitness aspirations being put on hold. But there is one technique that will help you get stronger and fitter when you come out on the other side.
5 strategies to help cultivate a positive, long lasting and mindful approach to your health.
Hydration is easy
It’s simple. To maintain optimum health and physical fitness:
• Drink fluids
• Preferably non caffeinated (but still counts)
• Eat water rich foods often. Vegetables and fruits (preferably low in sugar) are great to keep hydrated
• Avoid dehydration during a workout by drinking a glass of water an hour before training, during the workout as required and within an hour of finishing.
See you at the studio soon.
With healthy wishes,

Importance of Sleep
Sleep is a biological need and a function necessary for our body to thrive. It is the time when we regenerate and recover from the trials of the day before; rebalancing hormones, regenerating and building muscle, recovering strength etc. Long term lack of and poor quality of sleep is detrimental to health and can lead to a myriad of health issue such as weight gain, hormonal imbalances, cardiovascular issues and general deterioration of physical and mental health. Here are steps to take before bed to ensure a good night’s sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated for the day ahead.
