Last month, we got you to send in your fitness questions. Our trainers have been sifting through the virtual post box to provide their advice, and Charmaine Chandler asked:

How do you create a balance when trying to lose weight, and how do you keep motivated?

We say:

Allow yourself to have the occasional treat, but make lifestyle changes when it comes to food. Nobody likes the thought of being on a diet, so try and treat the way you eat as a way of life.

When it comes to keeping motivated, find an exercise or activity that you enjoy and you’re more likely to make it part of your routine. Come along to one of our fitness classes – not only do they take place at scheduled times every week, making it easier to build it into your routine, but they offer a great way of having a workout while socialising!
