My Top 5 Fitness Tips for a Healthier, Happier you.

August 1, 2017

My Definition of a Healthy Lifestyle:

 

 For me, it is all about balance and consistency.   There is no better feeling than when you are in the swing of an fun, healthy eating and exercise regime. All aspects of your life will be affected in the most positive way. 

 

 “A healthy lifestyle is a combination of balance and consistency. You need to be moving your body regularly, stretching almost everyday eating a diet rich in whole foods, getting  enough sleep, drinking plenty of water and having positive mindset.”

 

 My Top 5 Fitness Tips  

 

  1. Stretch

  2. Hydrate

  3. High Intensity Interval Training

  4. Avoid Processed Foods 

  5. Get Planning 

 

  1. Stretch: 

Stretching is so important and should be happening daily. Stretching the muscles keeps them strong, healthy and flexible.  We need that elasticity to maintain a range of motion in the joints otherwise the muscles shorten and become tight. … Injured muscles may not be strong enough to support the joints, which can lead to joint injury.  Stretching will leave you feeling more open mentally and physically.  In my eyes, the holistic benefits outweigh the physical. 

 

2: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!! 

 

There are so many benefits to drinking a generous amount of the clear stuff everyday. Not only does it help get the metabolism moving, clearer skin, healthier teeth and bones and reduces fatigue.  Water makes up almost two thirds of our body and it plays a vital role in everything from regulating body temperature and reducing injuries (by keeping the joints lubricated)

Fat Loss:  When it comes to fat loss, hydration aids metabolism, so keeping our bodies well hydrated is vital in boosting its ability to burn fat.

 

I recommend between 2-4L per day.  Begin  the day with a pint of water to get the metabolism moving and shaking early on! 

 

3: High Intensity Interval Training. 

 

Add HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)  into your workout regime. It’s the best for boosting your metabolism and getting lean and toned fast. 

 

My favorite HIIT class is F45 in Sandyford which is a combination of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training, and Functional Training. -  https://f45training.ie/sandyford/ (click link to find out more) not only
