The 1Life Guide to Making Progress this Winter

Posted by Adelle Wood on 24-Nov-2021 16:09:11


The cold weather, dark mornings and early evenings all make it difficult to stay motivated and focused on your health and fitness goals.

But there are some simple ways to keep making progress...


1Life On Demand


Can’t get to the gym? Don’t want to head out in the rain? Whatever the reason for not wanting to visit us in person, with 1Life On Demand you can take a class from the comfort of your own home.

Choose from a range of workouts to suit your fitness plan. See what all the fuss is about by trying the ‘Class of the week’. Isolate muscle groups by taking strength specific workouts or choose from the category ‘No equipment – No problem’ and take bodyweight exercises to the next level!

If you are looking for something with a mental focus rather than physical, take sessions from the ‘Powerful Mind & Meditation’ series or ‘De-stress yourself’.

You can make it feel like you’re in the gym or studio by casting the classes to you tablet or TV. All of the classes are led by top instructors so if you are new to virtual training, you’ll be in safe hands!

1Life On Demand is included in a 1Life Plus membership and available to use on the app. 


Food Plan


The festive period is one of the hardest times to stay on track with a balanced, healthy diet. Everywhere you turn there’s temptations in the form of mince pies, chocolate coins and celebratory bubbles. However, having a plan in place to keep you accountable can help you stay disciplined.

Our fitness experts are on hand to offer nutritional support and they have lots of handy tips to help you make healthier choices.

Our team will be able to

  • Help you realise your weight loss potential
  • Raise awareness of your calories in vs out
  • Show you the nutritional profile of your current eating habits
  • Give recommendations to help you get to your target

Keep it interesting


Have you been going over the same routine in the gym for some time now? When you are not mentally challenged, you can easily lose motivation. It’s time to switch up your workout!

We have an excellent team of personal trainers whose professional and proven advice will help you get the best results.

All of our personal training options are competitive and we guarantee you won’t find better support from a fully qualified team anywhere else.

Set goals


Now is the perfect time to decide what you want to achieve in the near future! Whether that’s losing weight, running a race, or lifting a new PB, it is important to commit to them and put a timeframe on the results.

Book that half marathon for late spring now. Buy that item of clothing a size smaller. Enter the swimming competition you have always contemplated doing!

Scientific evidence proves that setting yourself a goal has a significant impact on the brain, ‘setting goals pushes us to invest in the target as if we’d already accomplished it.’ So, invest the time now and by next Winter, who knows what you could have achieved!

Make it social


During the busy winter period, it can be hard to find the time to workout AND meet up with friends and family so why not combine the two? Plus, you’re much less likely to skip your session if you know you will be leaving your buddy in the lurch!

If you have each other on social media, use it as a motivational tool this Winter! According to this report, ‘healthy competition and support on social media platforms motivates people to get out and workout more.’
