Fitness Weekly Recap

Keep Regular
Get into a routine, and plan your week for the best cumulative results, building on the past achievements and hard work.

HIIT is hard
HIIT training is the best form of training at home because it doesn’t need much space or time, and it’s a great fat burner.

Get off of your butt!
Especially in lockdown, working from home, remember regular walks if you’re sat at your desk all day. Great for mind and body.

Gooooaaaaaaallll!!!
Set yourself short term, realistic and achievable goals! for example “this week I am going to join all three week day wellness sessions and take Jenny’s difficulty option on one set”

Nutrition Weekly Recap

Balance is best
Eat regular set meals that contain fibre, protein, and fats. fibre helps to keep you fuller for longer, which will help reduce any cravings

Keep it in mind
Eat mindfully, by chewing your food slowly

Be consistent
Keep consistent with your diet and try to eliminate snacking. Try to avoid low calorie diets, as these can cause a drop in metabolism, which means you’ll find it harder to lose weight.

Fitness Weekly Recap

Track it
Track your workout sessions, in order to keep on top of your progress, this will help to keep you motivated

Slow and Gradual
Always start slowly if you’re new to exercise, then gradually increase the intensity of the workouts when you start to see improvements!

Pace yourself
You don’t need to start out exercising every day, just take your time, and ease yourself into a routine.

Consistency
Consistency is everything, keep to an exercise routine that you can stick to, you will see more results this way.

Set Goals
Set yourself short term, realistic, and achievable goals. For example “This week I am going to try and manage two more half press-ups/ full press-ups than the previous week.”

Nutrition Weekly Recap

Get in the Habit
Form small habits, for example “This week I am going to drink two litres of water everyday”

Add Healthy – Don’t Deprive
If you’ve found you’ve been eating less healthy options in lockdown than you normally would, rather than focusing on the things you want to cut out from your diet, think about healthy options you’d like to add.

Atlantic City: Wellbeing By the Ocean

Where it all started

The beach is where it all started; pristine sand with healthy salt air and a developer who saw the promise it held. Now Atlantic City is one of the world’s favourite beach destinations. The beach differentiates itself from other gambling locales

During the summer, the beaches are guarded by the country’s first lifeguard organisation and the water is safe. visitors stroll, ride a bicycle, a tour the boardwalk on a distinctive rolling chair

The first permanent boardwalk was built in 1870 as a way to keep sand off of hotel carpets. Today, the boardwalk is more than 5 miles in length and 60 bet across at it’s widest point.
