Approx 80% of people who start a regular training program after New Year will GIVE UP by the end of February if they haven’t already.


(this may vary depending on what resources you look at but either way the percentage is super HIGH).


That means only 20% will actually get the chance to see and feel real changes to their body, health, fitness and lifestyle.


Only 20% are going to have more energy, feel more confident, feel fitter and feel happier in themselves.


I don’t know about you but I find that sad, quite scary but unfortunately NOT surprising.


Crazy diets + drastic lifestyle changes = FAIL


Quick fixes do NOT work!!


If someone tells you they have a ‘quick fix’- they’re LYING.


If you lose 10lbs in 10 days:


Congratulations you just lost a sh*t load of water weight and precious muscle, not bodyfat.


Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your dream body.


Small changes on a daily basis + consistency = lifelong RESULTS!


Today is a new day, new week, new month and a fantastic opportunity to chase your goals.




In order to succeed, I’d highly suggest breaking things down into bite size goals.




If you don’t workout at all – aim for 1-2 times per week.


If your workout twice a week – aim for 3-4 times per week.


SLOWLY introduce more exercise as you work this into your lifestyle.


Top Tip:


Do exercise you ENJOY!


If you don’t like something don’t do it.


Keep it short, fun and varied.

Fitness Class Info:




If you’ve got GOOD food in the house, you’ll eat good food.


If you’ve got crap in the house, you’ll eat crap.


EAT crap = FEEL like crap.


Try keep things simple.


1. Aim for 3 meals a day and 2-3 snacks


(not essential for fatloss but helps with structure and cravings)


2. Eat protein at every meal.


(and snacks if possible)


3. Load up on veggies.


4. Limit alcohol (aka ‘Fat Juice’)


5. Aim for a min of 2 litres of water a day.




We have approx 70,000 thoughts a day.


How many of your thoughts are negative?


I’m fat, I look ugly today, I’m not good at this, I’ll never be able to do that.


Imagine if you turned them into positive ones???!


It won’t magically happen overnight but the more you TRAIN your brain to think more positively the more automatic it will become.


You’re alive.


You’re breathing.


Life is at your fingertips.


So instead of looking in that mirror and jumping on that negativity train of self destruct, try telling yourself:


‘I’m grateful to be alive and today’s going to be a GREAT day!’


Time to put ‘Feel Good Feb’ into 1st gear : )
