Keeping moving and staying active is key for physical and mental wellbeing during these tough times. Our work is physically demanding, so it’s my job to make sure you’re all match fit and ready to take up the challenge when we return to work.
I’ve called on Ted Winter – PT and co-owner of Storm Fitness – to offer his top tips on how to stay well from the home.
Ted’s the guy behind Chris Eagle’s 50kg+ weight loss transformation – so he knows a thing or two when it comes to shedding pounds, lifting spirits or just releasing endorphins to keep our bodies going.
Over to you, Ted…
I’ve worked with quite a few hospitality workers over the past five years and understand the lifestyle challenges and the punishment daily deadlines have on your bodies. Now is the perfect chance to make a change and set aside some time to focus on ‘you’.
Here’s a few pointers, tips, and tricks to help you guys feel better and stay motivated during this period.
I’ve promised to keep this brief, so here’s three tips to help get you started:
- BREAK IT UP
We’re spending a lot more time sitting down looking at a screen, so it’s important to get up and take a break! Get up every 30-45 minutes – move around, make a cup of tea and do a couple of stretches: click here for a few to get you started.
- BUILD ON IT
Start with a small change. Go for a walk, lift some weight, stretch, tweak your diet. Experiment and find something that suits you best – whether it’s yoga, the Couch to 5k programme, circuit training or simply a daily walk. Start small and build slowly.
- ROUTINE MATTERS
Routine is key – for both exercise and food! If you’re struggling, plan out your week; shop based on your plan, and try to build meals around protein and plenty of fresh veg.
