Fitness Planning

To plan to adapt is to plan to change and progress.

~ M.L Adams

Adapting and changing your training programme is almost as important as the training programme itself. If your training plan stays the same, you will also as you will reach a certain point in your progress and then remain at that point until adaption takes place.

So how, and how often should you change your training plan to ensure you progress?

Here are 5 tips to help you plan for programme adaption and change.

  1. Aim to change every 6wks -3 months, preferably no longer as at this point your body will be used to your current programme.
  2. Get proper guidance from a personal trainer or instructor so you can ensure the programme is right for you.
  3. Make sure you enjoy your programme as well as find it challenging too. It’s important to enjoy yourself as you progress and make exercise a part of your lifestyle.
  4. Try different ways if you haven’t found what works for you. For some people they prefer classes and for others gym, everyone is different so find what works for you. There is something for everyone.
  5. Work on all parts of your fitness to see full and faster progression. Cardio, resistance and flexibility training are all equally important and help you progress easier and quicker when done together.

I hope you find these helpful. Please get in touch with any queries you may have regarding training plans and progress.

Change with change

Have you ever stopped and noticed how much everything is always changing. That within each moment, are many tiny moments and so many tiny experiences.

Nothing stays the same and no one moment is the same, yet so many of us spend our lives wanting things to stay and remain the same or even moving away from what is.

Yet in each moment there is always change.

What if instead we choose to change with the change, and go with what is, wont we then feel far more happy and at peace.

A great teacher to help us do this is mother nature herself. After spending an hour or two in nature, you will soon find yourself becoming more immersed and flowing with the natural changes that happen in each moment.

This is especially great for those times of stress or worry, as nature brings us back to the here and now, allowing a return to a natural state of inner peace and clarity.

So much happens in each moment that it is purely magical, yet so often we can miss it, caught up in our daily lives, busy with many daily tasks.

Yet you deserve this time; take time out whenever you can and explore the beauty in each moment with the beauty of nature.

Allow nature to teach you to change with change, the moments are so minute that we may just miss them.
