CUMBERNAULD fitness guru, John Allan has said that the change in season should help people bring about a change in their fitness rota.

With spring just around the corner, locals will witness the birth of green shoots and the happily radiant addition of sunshine past 4 o’clock. However, John has said that the new season will hopefully mean no more snow, rising temperatures, as well as more opportunities to be active outside.

John said: “Whether you are starting again or continuing on with your activities, now is the time to increase your fitness activities.  If you are training outdoors the fresh air will do you good and re-energize your winter lull.”

The winter often has a negative impact on people’s schedules for keeping fit. The cold weather and dark nights can demoralize the best of us and have us snuggled up on the couch next to the fire indoors but John Allan from Get Cumbernauld Healthy has some tips on springing back into action and getting back into your exercise routine.

“Start with easy short-term goals, but keep it fun, otherwise you risk quick burnout. Ease into your training if it has been a while because your body and mind need some time to adjust,” John added.

“It doesn’t matter what you are into whether it’s running, Pilates, Zumba, Boot Camp, good old fashioned aerobics or just a walk around the block or a bike ride with the kids – the most important thing is getting back out there and enjoying the lighter nights.

“Start with small bursts and increase your training every week. Choose challenging activities that will give you a buzz and as you progress each week you will soon start looking and feeling better.

“Our regular clients are really relishing the fact that it’s now broad daylight half way through early morning Fit camp. Energy levels are boosted and it’s a great feeling when spring is in the air.”

And don’t forget now is a great time to start eating healthy too with lots of fresh salads, and fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables.
