Boss Winter Tips
1. Organise your week
Figure out when you can fit training into your schedule. Training before work can help to ensure that you get your training in rather than it coming to the end of the day and by then you’ve lost your motivation to show up! Alternatively, going to the gym straight after work rather than home first helps (otherwise you may go home and not be able to motivate yourself to get back up and go).
2. Work out with a friend
It definitely helps to have someone there holding you accountable, someone who is going to push you along and talk you into coming to the gym, you never regret a workout the hardest part is getting to the gym! Plan to meet someone at boss for each session so you don't let them down!
3. Overhaul your Nutrition Plan
If you’ve been following the same approach day in and day out for a while now with your eating and your bored, then your body is most likely bored also. Mix it up and make things interesting with some new meal ideas. Checkout our latest winter recipe.
4. Prepare food for success
With less partying going on in Winter its easier to have a lazy day around the house with 2 hours of this spent preparing your food for the week, ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’ and some nights once you get home from work the last thing you want to do is think about organising your food for the next day.
5. Try out a new session
Give Isolation, Barbell or Yoga a go to mix up your training. Make sure you plan out your sessions and plan your week around that. It takes the guesswork out of your weekly training routine and keeps things interesting.
6. Embrace the winter!
Every year winter is going to rock up whether we want it to or not, so why not embrace this time of the year! We all know that winter is going to be cold. Rather than let the cold be an excuse to not get out of bed or go straight home from work, try to find ways to make the cold more bearable. Turn on the heater 15 minutes before you get up, have a quick hot shower to get rid of the chill, get in early to warm up, buy a super warm jacket (Kathmandu or North Face) and head straight to the gym from work.
7. Pack your gym bag the day before
Have your gym bag ready to go the day before, that way if your training in the morning it will give you that little bit of extra time to sleep in, or if your coming straight from work it will ensure you don’t go home and get stuck on the couch.
8. Purchase some new kicks or workout gear
How good does it feel having some fresh new kicks and active wear to show case around the gym! It gives you that extra boost of motivation. Go out and treat yourself to something new, this can also be a good reward for reaching your goals.
Lets hit the beach next summer with even better beach bodies than this year, lets utilise winter rather than going into hibernation, glued to Netflix and eating comfort food!
