5 Common Fitness Mistakes – And How To Avoid Them

Magazines, uninformed journalists and pseudo fitness gurus are constantly promoting the ‘latest amazing celebrity fitness secret’ or the ‘magic pill’ that will let you eat anything you want and still lose weight, or the new ‘superfood’ that will cure cancer, end world poverty and rejuvenate your liver all in 1 week. And they do this because they are trying to sell products. They want you to continually buy their magazines, supplements or a new ‘health’ food.

There is such a lot of useless, false and misleading information out there that it has become almost impossible to sift the wheat from the chaff. The reality is that there are no magic pills. Becoming your fit and healthy best takes time, commitment and hard work.

10 of The Best Body Weight Exercises To Tone Your Whole Body

I've just come back from a gorgeous holiday in Greece with Joe and a bunch of friends. As always, on holiday, we all ate too much and moved too little. Which means, now we're home, we're feeling sluggish, tired and out of shape. Which is really the opposite of how we should be feeling after 10 days in the sun!

But it doesn't have to be this way.

There are lots of fun and interesting ways that we can keep active, fit and healthy whilst we're away.

DSC_1264

So, today, I want to share with you my step by step guides to 10 simple body weight exercises that you can do, anywhere, anytime, along with my body weight exercise 'top tips'.

These exercises are all compound exercises which means that they use lots of different muscles, for maximum effect and calorie burn.

I've also designed them so that they don't require any special equipment or much space. So there really is no excuse!

The Do’s and Don’ts of Exercise in Pregnancy

Do you wonder what sort of exercise, if any, you can do in pregnancy?

Are you concerned that you might be hurting your baby if you do any more than take a long walk or go to a prenatal yoga / pilates class?

Well if that sounds like you, you’re not alone!

When I found out that I was pregnant last December I panicked. Not about the baby (this was a much hoped for little one) but about what sort of exercise I could continue doing.

If you’re anything like me then the idea of spending 9 months walking and doing yoga is a little like hell! So I set about researching, speaking to midwives and doctors and getting my qualifications in pre and post natal exercise.

And in today’s article I’m going to share with you what I’ve found – alongside some definite Do's and Don’ts of Exercise in Pregnacy.

How To Be Your Own Life Coach

We could all benefit from having someone in our lives who always supports us, guides us and cheers us on, encouraging us with all our personal and professional goals.

But how many of us really do?

Do you have anyone in your life to talk to about your goals and hopes for the future? If so, do you actually talk to them about these things?

Do you feel guilty burdening your friends or family by talking 'too much' about yourself, what you're doing and any problems that you're facing?

And when talking to them, do you hold back information because you're embarrassed to, or don't want to share big goals in case they laugh, or don't believe in you?

If not now, when?

This is where a Life Coach comes in, and can make the difference between goal success and failure.

A life coach is someone who will help you to achieve your life goals. They do this, in part, by getting you to focus on what it is that you really want, setting realistic yet inspiring goals and by helping you to create the right mindset to go out there and make it happen.

A mindset is an attitude or set of beliefs that has the power to completely change your life. The right mindset can be the difference between success and failure, and that’s because it’s only with a positive and open mindset that we will actually think the thoughts we need to think, and take the actions that we need to take. Things will go wrong with any plan, however good, clear and well researched it is, obstacles will arise and it’s only with the right mindset that you’ll be able to learn from the experience, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep moving forwards.

So, in today’s article, I want to share with you my 3 top tips for a positive mindset:

How To Stay Fit & Healthy Whilst Away

Click here to be taken to the episode.

This is the 3rd and final episode in the mini series I put together for Lux Worldwide (www.luxworldwide.com) on how to stay fit and healthy whilst travelling.

In this episode I share my top tips for holiday fitness.

Because, if you're anything like me, holidays and trips abroad can feel like a break from 'real life'. This means an excuse to have 2 ice creams a day, dessert with lunch AND dinner, and the opportunity to avoid the gym at all costs.

But, just because you may not want to spend your precious holiday time in the hotel gym, doesn't mean there aren't other fun and healthy things that you can do to get your heart rate up, your body moving and that allow you to break from your normal routines, enjoy the sun and your new surroundings.

So, for more on these, and my other tips, check out today's episode.

How to Stay Fit & Healthy Whilst on The Plane

Click here to be taken to the episode.

Welcome to Episode 2 in my Lux Worldwide (www.luxworldwide.com) mini series on How to Stay Fit & Healthy Whilst Travelling.

Plane time can feel like a bit of a waste of time. Hours and hours sitting bolt upright, squashed between 2 metal barriers, knees banging against the seat in front of you, and trying to get the cramp out of your neck. Not the most fun.

Add to this the sound of babies wailing, dehydration and the, often, horrific processed plane 'food'...and we can often try making this time as bearable as possible by constantly eating, drinking alcohol and watching the latest crappy films.

But it doesn't have to be this way...

Check out today's episode for how to make 'plane time', useful and healthy time!

How To Stay Fit & Healthy Whilst Preparing To Go Away

Click here to be taken straight to the episode.

This month I've been travelling, a lot! And that has inspired me to share this mini series with you....

Amsterdam, Dubai and Berlin. 1 month and 3 different trips!

Do you spend a lot of time travelling?

Do you find it really hard to keep up with your healthy habits and routines whilst you are away?

Well, if you’re anything like me and my clients – we spend a lot of time travelling and it can be really tough to keep up our healthy eating, and fitness routines when we’re away.

We’re jet-lagged, busy and surrounded by temptation – all of which are a recipe for indulging in sugary treats, high saturated fat meals and a lot of sitting around!

In moderation, all these things are OK…but, if you’re travelling every month, or more, it’s time to make some changes and get yourself some new healthy habits.

Because, although difficult, it’s not impossible to keep fit and healthy even when you are away.

So, in today’s post I want to share with you Episode 1 of the mini series I put together in my capacity as Health & Fitness editor for Lux Worldwide (www.luxworldwide.com) the world’s largest (and best!) luxury concierge company.

Lux 1_1

In the following 3 episodes I share with you my top tips for how to stay fit and healthy whilst preparing to go away, whilst on the plane, and whilst you are actually away.

How To Get Out Of Your Own Way

‘Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right’

aerobics class in park

Our thoughts become our actions. If we think something, we’re likely to make that thought a reality. It becomes a ‘self fulfilling prophecy’. Thoughts turn into actions because our subconscious mind understands the thought and works to make that thought the reality. ‘I can’t get that job’, ‘I’ll never find a boyfriend’, ‘I’ll never get fit’ etc etc

 

This happens across all areas of life, and, your fitness is no exception. If you think you can’t do it, you’re right, you can’t. If you think you’re going to fail, you probably will. Because your subconscious will work to make it happen, not realizing that it’s the opposite of what you really want.

 

So, if our own thoughts can become our personal saboteurs, what can we do to keep these negative thoughts in check?

 

Well, see my top 3 tips below:
