If you are like most people, you will have embarked on your fitness journey because you
feel the need for change. Perhaps you want to change the way your body looks, how
strong you are, or how well you perform on the sporting field.
We start the New Year with high hopes and lofty aspirations. We tell ourselves that this will be the year when we break the cycle. When we will make a plan for lasting, lifelong health and fitness and, unlike the us of yesteryear, actually stick to it. However it is around this time, after the first month of the year draws to a close, when we start to hit a wall. The ambitious regimen we set out for ourselves gets harder to marry with our busy lifestyles. Motivation seems more challenging to come by and staying in shape has become a gruelling chore rather than an enjoyable and edifying activity.
