It's June. That means the great British summer is upon us and we will all be sunbathing as much as possible, getting overly excited for barbecues and complaining about how hot it is (unless it's raining... which is also very likely).
Training in the summer time is slightly different to training in winter. Here are a few things to consider when the heat goes up and you still have your exercises to do:
"I’ve never felt this fit and content in my own skin in my life! I really get a buzz from seeing my progress week on week and I like how I feel when I’ve completed a workout- my energy levels improve and I have such a sense of accomplishment.
In the beginning, I had lost some weight but was still overweight and was starting from scratch in terms of fitness. I'd never really enjoyed exercise all that much before, but I'd reached a point in my life where I needed to pull my finger out and take care of myself in order to properly take care of my family and the demands of caring for a special needs son.
"Like most girls I have body hang ups.... I was conscious of my legs which I wanted to tone up, and I was also really conscious of the fact I was so unfit! I seriously lacked motivation and needed that extra push.
My first 2-3 weeks with Polly were great, I was motivated I was energized and full of positivity....but I will be honest there were a few weeks in the middle where I got tired. I was struggling more with the workouts as they were getting tougher, and I felt like I wasn't getting any better. But I stuck at it (mainly because Polly was good at motivating me and I'd always feel more positive after our weekly sessions).
"I live between Cornwall and London so when I started with Polly I was dubious about how effective my programme would be due to not having PT sessions on a regular basis but just sticking to the plan she'd written out. However, I've been overwhelmed with the results!
On finishing her 12 Week Accelerator Plan, Alice filled out a review. Here is what she wrote:
Overall, how happy are you with your plan and the services offered?
I'm so happy, in fact I couldn't be happier! I got more out of my plan than I ever imagined.
