How long should I exercise for?

A question I had yesterday:

​​”I don’t have a lot of time and struggle to fit in exercise during the week so I’m not sure I could do your 28 Day Kickstart” 

It’s a great question.

Especially as we often have this belief that we have to do an hour or it’s pointless…

Truth is, there’s NO actual time commitment….

It just depends on what you’re willing to do…

I mean, let’s say you invest 15 minutes a day in your food, fitness and weekly tasks you are set. 

​​1 is BETTER than 0. 

You are STILL closer to your goal. 

And when you build that momentum and it becomes a habit? It is HONESTLY easier…

(Like my intense lockdown flossing habit where I started being more consistent than ever but still not perfect. like I said – I’m still better and if I’m working on it? Failure is just success waiting to happen. And funny how booking a hygienist appointment has made me more consistent than ever with my flossing 😂!)

I know I talk a lot about being selfless..

What I mean by this is that – for many – the EASIEST way to be happy​​​​​​ is putting your mental and physical health first. 

As no matter how much you try to put your friends, family and work first (which happens to me, too)…cracks will start to appear. 

And I say this from personal experience, too. I am WAY more irritable when I haven’t looked after me. 

​​Be it had my morning coffee, read a book for 5 minutes, exercised etc…

​​(just the fact I have the choice to do these things makes me grateful as MANY people would kill to have the choice to do the above)

In summary?

There is NO time commitment for anything, It just depends how important it is to you right now. ​​​​

​​be it health, fitness, learning a new skill, job…

It’s a case of how long do you have? 

And lastly, how important is this to you?

That’s why we have workouts you can do in just 3 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes or 30 minutes.

You can make them as personal as you like by coming to our sessions in-person in Devize, Chippenham and Marlborough


Make them as convenient as you like by doing them from home.

The key?

Is in the there will always be obstacles and if you can do it now, when you’re busy, when you’ve got “too much on”, when can’t you do it?

And yes, you might be thinking that you know that but struggle for motivation.

Here’s a quick tip for you…

Write down the 1-3 most important benefits of doing what you know you need to do with your exercise and food…

Put them on sticky notes

And place them where you will see them every, single day.

Check in with them every day.

This is something I’ve done with many of the ladies.

In fact, I’ll share a few:

“I want to feel of confident in the clothes I wear and fit back into my favourite ones”

“I want to stop worrying about my health”

“I want to be able to play with grandkids without being exhausted”

Because sometimes 

Just seeing those things you value every day

Can make you see how important doing the things you know you need to do are..

Especially when you can see that the results and consequences of our actions

Really do align with what you value in your life.
