We can all start to feel the mid year slum around this time of year, maybe we’ve lost focus or our goals need to be restablished, we are here to keep you motivated and to keep your eye on the game!

Here are a¬†few things to get you back into being the motivated little fox you were on New Years Day! ūüėČ

A vision board! Might sound a bit silly, but they can seriously help keep your head in gear and motivated.  A vision board takes the elements of a scrapbook but instead of looking into the past it creates a vision of your future.  A board of pictures, quotes and aspirations that you look to for inspiration will be very beneficial for keeping your head where it needs to be! Inspirational figures such as Oprah and Ellen use inspiration boards to stay motivated.

Get yourself a Personal Trainer, we have some fantastic deals going on at the moment in amidst of our 25th Birthday. Even 25% off a 12 pack of PT so you can try it out and see how you like it. We have some fantastic and friendly personal trainers on board to help you get through the mid year slum.  Meeting with a personal trainer weekly can keep you focused and help keep your mind on the end goal.

Reward yourself! You might not be at your end goal that you were striving towards yet but you have achieved results… reward yourself for it! Whether it’s a day to yourself at the spa or a sneaky snack at Max Brenner for a cheat meal. Something to keep you looking forward to achieving more.

Focus on the benefits, look how far you have come and look what you have achieved. Focus on these positives to keep you going and feeling fantastic about your wonderful selves!

Saturday is the start of a new month! What goes well with a fresh month? Some new goal setting!

Goal setting is vital for achieving the results that you are wanting to achieve. Why? Because they make you think about your future and further motivate you to change this vision into reality. Once you have set your goals, the journey of achieving them becomes more focused and can be strategized to ensure you are reaching them! For example, you could set a goal that you want visible abs by the end of March, book in for a new program, have a chat to one of our Personal Trainers and they can give you all kinds of different ab exercises that you can undertake to achieve these goals!

Now if you hadn’t set a goal, you wouldn’t have the results!

Amongst this goal setting it’s also important that you set smart goals that are not only¬†motivating but also attainable.

Ensuring that your goals are SMART is the key to success!

Specific- ensuring your goals are specific, for example ensuring that your goals detail exactly what you are wanting to achieve is vital to ACHIEVING exactly what you want to achieve.

Measurable- ensuring that your goals are measurable is also important in tracking your progress. Measurements, before and after photos- they all help!

Attainable- ensuring that the goals you are actually setting are attainable is important to ensure you aren’t setting your goals too high or too low.

Relevant- ensuring that the goals you are setting out to achieve are relevant to your overall success is key for your overall result.

Timely- put a time limit on your goals! This is why monthly goals are a great idea for the gym, it is a reasonable amount of time to achieve your results and discover what is next on the list of things to achieve!

Where do you go from here? Book in for a program update in the club for a refresher, we can create a new list of goals for the new month and show you some fantastic ways of achieving them!

Our Winter Challenge is around the corner! We thought we would base this week’s blog on it and let you all know what it’s all about and what’s in it for you!

Fernwood likes to keep our special members motivated! Especially during these cooler months, so we run a free challenge every year to help you out and to try and maintain your motivation during Winter!

The challenge runs over four weeks, from Monday 29 July to Sunday 25 August.   We will provide you with a list of Winter foods that are great for you to eat and a basic meal plan throughout the challenge time,and yummy recipes for you to try! We also provide you with exercise motivation and weekly workouts that will keep you warm during these chilly Winter months and to keep you moving! We will get you motivated and help you achieve those fitness goals.

Basically we will give you a list of good and bad foods that you should and shouldn’t be eating and instruct you on the best way to eat them, regarding portion control etc.¬†We will also guide you with weekly emails that will keep you on top of your goals, provide you with information on the benefits of Winter foods and yummy recipes for you to try!

Guiding you with your eating during Winter will help build your immune system and fight those nasty Winter bugs away! Whilst also giving you the energy you require to get through those long days at work and to give you the boost you need for your daily workouts!

The aim of the challenge is to get you moving as well, so the goal is to get you in the gym at a minimum of three times a week. We will provide you with a weekly workout that you can do which will burn 1000kJ, that’s 250 calories.

It’s important for you to continue exercising throughout the cooler months and we’re here to make that easier. ¬†With regular guidance and motivation from our staff plus with clearly defined goals, you are a lot more likely to stick to the gym and achieve what you signed up for!

What’s the cost? We have a recommended donation of $5 that will go straight to the Salvation Army Winter Appeal, your money will help clothe and feed those who are most vulnerable during these chilly Winter months. Do it for the Salvos!

Helping yourself and those in need! Why would you say no?!
