1) Pick a goal that means something – weight loss is all very well and good but wanting to feel great for that wedding you’re going to in June will provide a bit more focus.
2) Consider a goal that is a physical challenge over aesthetics. Aiming to run a 10km will help with weight loss but also provide so much more of a feeling of accomplishment
3) Try a few different types of exercise until you find one you enjoy. There’s no point running and hating it and wanting to quit when you could be doing Body Pump and loving it.
4) Don’t listen to people. People always have an opinion – you’re doing too much, you’re not doing the right things, they did this and that worked so you should do that. Unless you’re training for the Olympics (and if you’re reading this I’m going to guess you are not) you do not need to make exercise complicated- move more in any way you enjoy.
5) OK maybe listen to the Fit Pros. If you do want advice speak to a PT or fitness instructor. This is particularly the case if you have a specific goal in mind, as this might involve doing some more specific training.
