It’s January and the internet is filled with fitness experts. The big question is…who should you listen to? If you go onto Instagram, your homepage will be filled with #personaltrainer, #fitness, #cleaneating with the list going on. Here at Flexifit, we promote a healthy balanced lifestyle of eating wholesome foods but not restricting yourself to ‘treats’ every so often. Only this morning we read a post encouraging the viewer to follow a programme and get a solid 6 pack in less than a month. Unfortunately, this is very unlikely! Abs are built in the kitchen so if you do not eat properly (by that we mean a macro/calorie monitored diet) and exercise regularly, you will struggle to achieve that washboard stomach.
Plenty of people invest in their careers and gain qualifications in both nutrition and fitness. Other people believe that knowing a few healthy recipes and exercises will suffice. For newbies stepping into the world of fitness for the first time, this is not only overwhelming but daunting too. Which diet is the best? Can I get the perfect bum if I work glutes and only glutes?
The feeling of frustration as fitness professionals when you see unqualified people giving out (incorrect) advise is just as extreme. We want to scream and shout, warning the ‘followers’ to continue with caution. Although Social Media platforms can bring fantastic opportunities, it seems like the more followers you have then the more popular you will be.
We want to help you to achieve your fitness goals and be the best you can be. Flexifit guide and support you, not pressurise you to do something you don’t want to do (except burpees, sorry about that!)
Have a healthy and happy end to the month and bring on February.
