D‚Äčon't Run Out of Steam

So much has been written about coronavirus and how to keep fit while we're locked down. So much information, so many You Tube videos, so many Instagram posts and so many people to like, follow and watch. It's overwhelming and exhausting - and that's before you've even done any exercise.

 My advice is this: find a type/s of exercise that works for you and keep doing it. Change it when you feel your body's got used to it or when it gets boring, The most important thing to do is keep going during this period. Those people who maintain an exercise regime throughout lockdown are the very people who are likely to remain committed when this is all over. They are the people who will stand out and flourish back in the gym/exercise classes and they are the people who will be able to feel proud of themselves from a fitness perspective for a very long time.

It Just Takes Two

Posted on April 4, 2019 at 12:50 AM

NEW research shows that working-out with a partner helps you stick to an exercise regime.

But, a couple of gym trips a year with your nearest and dearest won't work, you have to do it regularly to reap results.

A study published in Health Education Research that looked into the management of diabetes through diet and exercise found that those people who worked-out with a partner fared better in controlling their symptoms than those who didn't.

It also found those people who exercised in pairs at least once a week for more than six months stuck to their workout regime around 25 per cent longer than those who went solo.

So the message to anyone with the option of exercising a deux is: GO FOR IT!

The benefits of pairing-up include:

* Getting to the place of exercise - if one person's going, the other's more likely to want to go 

* The thought of hard work is more palatable if two of you are sharing the pain

* Motivating and supporting each other - before, during and after exercise

* Competition - a partner is a ready made opponent

* Doing an activity with someone you're close to is likely to be more rewarding and fun

* Sharing a common interest promotes a sense of social well being

* You've always got someone to share a glass of red with afterwards!
