Get Fit Watford Personal Trainer


Jody Rous - Personal TrainerChristmas is not far away and one thing is for sure, food and drink will be flowing freely.


"Many people put off fitness during the holidays believing that they do not have the time to exercise and enjoy the festive season," says Jody Rous of Get Fit Watford.


"Staying fit and enjoying the festivities can be done together."


Eat Before You Go - you will be less tempted to overindulge if you have already eaten something before you go out to a function.


Don't Skip Meals - While it might be tempting to skip meals thinking that will make up for the holiday treats; it is actually counterproductive.


Control Your Drinking - Alcohol is an easy way to add the calories; Avoid mixed and fruity drinks.


Exercise Whenever You Can - Exercise doesn't mean just at the gym; include activity to your life wherever you can.


Make It A Family Affair - Plan activities to do, such as walking or a bike ride.


Don't Forget Strength Training - Maintain your muscle mass by paring down your routine to basics.


Don't Set Unrealistic Exercise Goals - Aim to exercise 30 minutes a day, instead of an hour. It's alright to divide it up into 10 minute intervals during the day.


Don't Attempt To Stick To An Unrealistic Diet over Christmas - If you enjoy your favourite foods in small portions, you will feel more satisfied.


Drink Plenty Of Water - Water helps counter the dehydrating affects of travel or alcoholic beverages. Water will also help satiate your appetite as thirst is often mistaken for hunger.


Spread Out Your Meals - Don't eat everything at once. Eat dinner early and walk before having dessert.


Make workouts a priority - Try early morning workouts.


Jody also advises that like everything else, people need to take the festivities in moderation.


Working with a Personal Trainer over the festive season can help you stay motivated to a fitness regime, avoid the unwanted holiday bulge and still have a fun holiday season.
