OLYMPIC boxing gold medallist Katie Taylor has backed the Irish Independent's 100 FIT days campaign.
The national hero says a new health and fitness campaign in FIT Magazine, which comes with the Irish Independent every Monday, is "a great idea".
For 14 weeks, the magazine is providing exercise and nutrition plans to give you the blueprint for a healthier and happier you.
"It's great motivation for people to actually get out and be active," said the 28-year-old.
"To stick it out I would say set yourself goals, realistic ones, and don't be too hard on yourself if it doesn't happen straight away. You have to be consistent with your training and you definitely will get the results in the end, but it's all about persevering."
Her advice is to get a training partner and change up your routine. Read the full interview in Monday's FIT magazine, free with the Irish Independent.
