Carla balances fitness with her a hectic lifestyle, and uses her social media profiles to help motivate others with her experiences and tips. Carla shares her top tips for staying shape over Christmas.
1: Make sure to get your workouts in early in the week as the weeks will fly by and the weekends will always end up busy with shopping, party’s etc but isn’t that the fun bits of xmas
2: Don’t be scared to take time off, extra rest days give your body and mind a chance to recover and when you do get back to exercise you will have more energy and feel more motivated
3: Be open to different types of exercise, we all end up so busy this time of year that getting to the gym becomes even more difficult than normal. It can be a fun change of base to dig out old exercise dvd’s (sure you have some from last christmas), i am teaching my son to skip at the moment, that in itself is a great workout, or have you ever tried shopping in Oxford St this time of year thats definitely a workout.
4: Exercise with a friend, we all struggle to catch up with friends at xmas why not combine the two, meeting a friend at the gym before you go for dinner or drinks is a great way to catch up get a workout and enjoy xmas
5: Get out for walks, heading out for walks in the winter are great way to enjoy the time of year and spend quality time with the family, I always like to head up and see all the christmas lights with my family, a good few hours walking around burns its fair share of calories
