Advance bookings can help keep you on track

If you are experiencing any difficulty in keeping up with your workout schedule or perhaps are lacking motivation, consider making advance bookings by signing up for short distance athletic runs, fun runs or even fun walks. In this way, you can prepare yourself well in advance and diarise where and when you are expected to be on a particular day.

Take a friend along

If you have family or friends who are also hoping to get those calories burning, ask them to join you. The company will keep you motivated and you may even consider signing up for more similar activities in the upcoming weekends.

Dress comfortably

Be sure to dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes for the activity that you will be participating in. This will help you to avoid injury, whilst gaining the most of your workout.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
