‘GET FIT FOR THE BEACH…IN JUST 8 WEEKS!’

INSTANT BEACH BODY WEIGHT-LOSS ADS HAVE BEEN PARTICULARLY CONTROVERSIAL OF LATE. ARE ‘IMMEDIATE RESULTS’ SCHEMES REALLY HOW WE SHOULD VIEW FITNESS? We are all very much creatures of habit. We experience waves of ‘get fit fast’ spirit, wanting to turn it all around in 12 weeks - burn all our fat in no time at all. Then there’s the inevitable dropping out of our newfound discipline, as we give way to temptation and consumption. Soon enough the guilt, and the sudden inspiration to get fit right now, return… But it isn’t easy, is it? Stress, work, lack of time and family commitments all play havoc with our desire to be fit, lean and looking good. Now, there is no problem with raising the bar to meet targets and deadlines. It keeps us focused and on track and of course we can work these around busy times in the year. But would it not make sense to find a balance that is consistent hitting the middle ground and, in turn, scratching a little deeper that the surface, then, in turn, keeping and maintaining a manageable fitness level throughout life? If this is the case, then maybe taking a closer look at the more meaningful areas of fitness and wellbeing become more important. As a fitness professional, I look at a number of key factors that illustrate a greater level of health and fitness than simply the size of a bicep and six pack. On the following page you’ll discover some of the important areas we aim to improve and how best to go about it.
