Mikey on the return to the gym

Christmas is nearly upon us and in past years that meant chaos in the offices: food everywhere, spontaneous drinks and nights out, plus cold, dark nights and mornings.

Around December it suddenly becomes harder and harder to be motivated to go to the gym. You get home from work and the last thing you want to do is go back out to the gym.

It’s the same in the morning at this time of year – it’s harder to jump out of bed with fresh motivation.

All in all, December is a hard month to get motivated. A lot of people ask me what is the point when all they are doing is eating and drinking. Well, that should be the point.

Stopping training will lead to more weight gain over Christmas, making it extremely hard work in January, so keep your exercise levels high going into the festive period.

Make sure you are training at least three times a week and getting your daily steps in.

See Christmas as the time to relax a little bit but don’t see it as a time to stop altogether.
