  1. Tune in Research proves that when you tune into a high energy playlist you’re able to exercise harder, better, faster, stronger. Get proactive and spend time creating playlists that make you feel upbeat and motivated.
  2. Plan Head to the gym with a plan of action. A clear plan is your secret weapon, not only does it help make every second count but it allows you to mix up your moves. Need motivated? Avoid that aimless wander around the weights and book into a class. Check out our timetable, sometimes group exercise is the perfect complement to your typical gym routine.
  3. Drink Make it your habit to drink at least two litres of water a day,  it can actually take a couple of hours for your body to absorb the water so be prepared. Showing up at the gym feeling dehydrated can make your workout feel harder and reduce your body’s ability to recover.  Be sure to replace any fluids you loose, water is key.
  4. Sleep To maximise your workout aim for seven or more hours of quality shut eye every single night. Lack of sleep can impact your performance and your body’s ability to come back stronger. For up to 48 hours post exercise your body works hard to repair and build muscle, the trick is to let it.
  5. Warm down Recovery post workout is just as important as the workout itself. The body experiences exercise as a stressor so remember to activate your parasympathetic nervous system. Sound weird? We promise it’s not. Simply take five minutes to breathe after your session.  Deep breathing will calm your heart rate and reassure your body that you are in recovery mode and prevent overexertion.
