Creating a routine that incorporates your new health and fitness goals requires some overall lifestyle changes. This is often easier said than done, so we’ve put together our top tips on how to make the changes needed to ensure you’re able to stay on track for the long haul…

1. Put your health and wellbeing at the top of your priorities list
Don’t cancel scheduled workouts for anything that is lower on the list!

2. Keep your gym essentials in the car
This way it’s convenient to head to the gym whenever you find yourself with spare time.

3. Try new things
Test out all the classes, equipment and additional programs available to you. Did you know Pinnacle Running Club meets every Monday night? It’s for all ages & abilities, free to attend and you can even bring a friend! If you prefer more strength training, chat to one of our coaches about some of the weightlifting sessions at Pinnacle including Olympic Lifting and ChicksLift! You’ll soon discover what you enjoy most and will find yourself looking forward to it.

4. Book a Personal Coaching Session
Whilst small group training is an incredibly effective and affordable style of training, sometimes you just need some one-on-one motivation and advice. Regular Personal Coaching sessions will also keep you accountable to someone other than just yourself!

5. Remind yourself why you started in the first place
When you feel like you’re lacking motivation, remind yourself why you started, recap on your goals and force yourself to the gym – in all our years, no one has ever said they regretted their workout.

Making just a few small changes such as these will set you up to develop healthy habits and before you know it, your workouts will become as habitual as brushing your teeth!

*Results may vary. Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and/or muscle gain over an extended period of time.
