Bikini thoughts have sprung me into action

Now that spring has definitely sprung and holidays are in mind, the thoughts of the dreaded swimsuit season is creeping back into everybody's consciousness.

I don't know about you, but the thoughts of a bikini after a winter of overindulgence gave me a case of the shakes, so three weeks ago I stepped up my training regime. I had mentioned before that I was going to start TRX, and I have.

A couple of you were in touch saying that you had started the resistance training programme yourselves, and I don't know about you guys, but the combination of healthy eating and regular intensive exercise is already paying off for me.

Sure, my muscles are sore, but I am waking up earlier and energised, my skin looks better and the workouts even help my chronic sinusitis.

If you are easily bored and looking for a kick-start, I would recommend trying some form of resistance training, be it TRX, kangoo, reformer Pilates . . . the list goes on.

We are still looking for people to take part in our first-time event diaries. Last year we had an onslaught of applications – I am still waiting for the emails this time!

Get in touch. Not only is the act of appearing in FIT every week great motivation, our readers will help keep you on the straight and narrow.

And don't forget, send your burning nutrition questions to our guy Daniel via editor@fitmagazine.ie

Until next week . . .
