Benefits of exercise go way beyond weight loss

Exercising as a way of dieting or as a means to an end to shed those pounds is counter-intuitive.  What should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience as well as a highly stress busting activity that is about self-care and being positive around health and fitness, instead becomes another chore. So it’s no wonder the exercise plan goes off the rails so quickly at the beginning of every new weight loss attempt.

Setting yourself an achievable, realistic goal around exercise is vital.  “I have to lose four stone by summer” is not a goal.  “I will arrange a free fitness consultation at my local gym one day this week”, on the other hand, IS a goal.

An effective weight management programme should include specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time managed goals around exercise and nutrition.
