How are you?
There're so many different types of health and fitness plans out there on the internet - sometimes it can be hard to tell what works, and what doesn’t. That’s why I’ve put together my top tips to get beach body ready in less than six weeks.
Nobody said it was going to be easy. So get prepared to throw on your trainers, empty the junk cupboard and eat healthily. You’ll have the perfect beach body you always dreamed of, and you'll feel amazing!
Mix up your cardio
Whether you enjoy swimming, running or cycling - always mix up your cardio exercises. Not only will you be working different parts of your body, but you also won’t get bored doing the same workouts. This gives you a great opportunity to try new sports, too!
Create a meal plan
Getting a fabulous beach body doesn’t come from just exercising on a regular basis. Eating smart is crucial to getting a flat tum and a tight bum. Clean out the treats cupboard, don’t shop when you’re hungry and stick to healthy meals.
There are heaps of printable meal plans available online. Fill it out with some of your favorite healthy meals or find some available online. Once you've filled it out, stick it to your fridge and don’t stray from it.
Join a fitness class
Committing to a weekly fitness class is a great way to motivate yourself. Get in touch with your local fitness club and see if there are any sessions that you can join. I recommend a spin and circuit class because these are perfect for losing weight and toning up.
Create a motivational board
It’s easy to lose sight of why you’re pulling yourself out of bed in the morning to go for a run or going to an exercise class. Creating a Pinterest motivational board will help keep you focused. Pins can include healthy meals, model inspiration or training routines.
Get a personal trainer
Nothing is more motivating than getting a personal trainer. You’ll get a plan tailored to your body, and they’ll motivate you to push yourself to the fullest. If you’re looking for quick results, and you're serious about getting fit, this is a no-brainer.
Team up with a buddy
Sometimes it’s too easy to make excuses, renege on going to the gym, or to have a cheat meal. If you team up with one of your friends or your partner, then you’ll find it a lot easier to commit to your plan. You’ll have someone to share your achievements with, and someone to keep you company at the gym.
Track, achieve, reward
When you’re working towards a goal, it can be difficult to see the progress that you are making. Remember to always track how far you’ve come and set yourself milestones. Each time you hit one of these achievements, treat yourself. Whether it’s a naughty low-calorie dessert or a new bikini for the beach - you deserve it!
Good luck with beach body journey, and don’t give up!
