Get Fit For Summer

Are you as fit as you would like to be or have you booked a holiday and want to get in shape? To help you out we have put together a list of useful tips.

Exercise

Whether you are looking to lose weight, increase muscle mass or improve your overall fitness, exercise is a great place to start. There’s lots of different options, whether it’s going to the gym, booking onto some fitness classes, heading to your local pool or simply walking. Don’t burn yourself out by exercising for hours on end, instead workout for shorter periods of time but more often than you usually do. Our friendly and helpful team here at Activ8 will be more than happy to assist you with putting a workout plan together and are always on hand if you have any questions.

Luckily for you we are currently running our Get Fit For Summer campaign which gives all new members their first month absolutely FREE! More information about this offer can be found here. To redeem the offer use the promotional discount code: FREE2 at the checkout stage.

Eat well

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best. This means eating a wide variety of foods in the right proportions, and consuming the right amount of food and drink to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

It’s a good idea to plan meals in advance to avoid last minute eating or impulse choices when you’re hungry. Preparing your meals will also help you keep track of exactly what you’re putting into your body and how many calories it contains. It might be a good idea to do this on a Sunday night and prep what you’re going to eat for the upcoming week.

Stay hydrated

This is a simple way to start your fitness journey. Drinking water can increase the amount of calories you burn – in fitness terms this is known as resting energy expenditure. If you’re not drinking enough of it your body can become dehydrated and is not able to flush out all its toxins. When this happens you’re more prone to falling ill and gaining weight. On average it’s advised adults drink two litres of water per day.
