Has your inbox and Facebook feed become stuffed full with ‘New Year, New You’ and ‘Get fit this January’ messages? We’re all for getting active, and if you’re kicking off your new year with fitness, then we do applaud you! But we want to make sure that you keep going beyond the January resolution. Don't make grand and intimidating goals - make this year full of sustainable fitness habits.
Whether it’s exercise, healthy eating, deeper sleeps or keeping hydrated with zero-alcohol liquids, we’ve all got our goals for the new year. With a fresh new year lying ahead, it is the perfect time to make positive and healthy changes - time to get back into fitness post-Christmas. Be the best you that you can be!

Have winter’s frosty mornings, dark evenings and de-icing your car got you pining for warmer climates? Same here. But winter doesn’t have to be a time to hibernate from your fitness - it can be the perfect time to escape to the sun and focus on your fitness!

As the wind takes on a sharper temperature, we’re all bound to be stricken with a snotty cold or feverish flu at some point in the coming months. Getting sick is the worst, especially when it feels like it’s putting you out of action.
So the weather’s turned and the cooler temperature are descending. When the frost starts creeping into our dark mornings and our homeward bound commutes become pretty chilly, workouts can feel tougher to accomplish.
