Dark nights are upon us

It’s that time of year again!

There is not one day that passes lately when I don’t see a countdown of some kind on Facebook. Yes, Christmas is rapidly approaching us, yet for quite a few people there is a major barrier standing in the way of their party ready bodies. You may not have guessed this, but I’m talking about the arrival of the early dark evenings. We have been so lucky with the weather over the summer that it makes its arrival so much harder to deal with.

From the feedback that I’ve received of late, the reason behind this barrier is the fact that people just want to go home and curl up on the sofa. Most have done with work for the day and instead of being spurred on by the bright motivational evenings, it’s far more appealing for people to head straight home.

So why not look at this issue from a different angle? This month is ‘Stoptober’, where lots of people all over the country are making changes for the better. Now is the time to gather your friends and family together and try something new! Draw your motivation from each other, whether it be trying out a new studio class or in fact joining a gym together. There really is no reason to wait until after Christmas or even the New Year. Most of you may not realise this but if you want to increase your chances of burning off all the excesses we know that are on their way, then now is the time to start cranking up your training.

Most personal trainers will be offering some kind of Pre-Christmas package for exactly this reason and yes, my team of personal trainers and I are doing just that.

Here is our ‘Christmas Trimmings Programme’, for just £249 you will get the following:

  • A personalised H-Effect unique nutritional / exercise system
  • Full back up support from Shaun and his nutrition team
  • 8 personal training sessions with one of our team
  • A targeted workout plan (home or gym based) to keep you on track between your personal training session

So please don’t write off this year or the effort you have put in until this point. Motivation is right there waiting for you to find. You just have to be brave enough to make the steps towards it. Get organised this year, start early and get the results that you have always wanted and, up until now, only ever dreamt of.

My team and I can help you to find the best route to your inner motivation. Just get in touch with us.
