Now that the early mornings are getting brighter and just that little bit warmer, it's doesn't feel as much of a struggle getting out of bed as it did in the days of deepest Winter.
You may have found your New Years fitness resolutions have begun to slip as the year gets into full flow, so why not harness these first few days of Spring and get motivated first thing in the morning?
There are many benefits to exercising earlier in the day. Not only will it improve your mood and decrease stress levels before you head to work, which means that you'll be able to handle those meetings and deadlines SO better. You'll also give your metabolism a hefty boost, which means you'll burn more calories throughout the day, feel more energised and will glow with good health.
Exercising first thing in the morning makes you more likely to choose healthier options throughout the day as you've started on the good foot. Even better, you'll start your day feeling as if you've accomplished something great and it leaves your evening free for whatever takes your fancy.
So put the alarm on and rise and shine into a class and notice how your day changes.
Bring a friend to class with you and if they are new we'll give them 50% off their first class. It s a great way to stick to your good intentions. Send us their details here.
Let us know how you get on by sending in your feedback, we love to hear from you.
