Exercise For Personal Pleasure or Exercise For Personal Gain

Salisbury Super Sports have two main types of clientele. Those who wish to have a pleasurable social interaction with friends and or family and those who wish to gain something such as greater fitness or to lose weight.

For those of you who are in the latter category we would like to offer some tips and support to guide you through the challenge these goals attract.

Getting Your Head Around It

Losing weight and gaining fitness is a mental challenge more than a physical challenge.

Yes, you have to use your body to play an indoor sport such as those offered here but if you are mentally not in the game, then the game is already lost.

If you ignore your mind when the “too tired” excuse rears its ugly head your body will repay you tenfold.

The truth is that once you form a regular exercise regime your body will thrive. Your mind will become clearer and as your body becomes used to the exercise you will start to crave it.

Help yourself by tracking your results. Take before pictures and measurements and record your progress weekly.

The number one thing to consider is to reduce your weight. When you talk about losing weight your subconscious will naturally want to find it for you.

You Are What You Eat

Whilst the analogy ‘you are what you eat’ is true, there are some food rules that many of us are unaware of. We need to educate ourselves about them before we can begin to understand what it is our body needs.

The first thing to know is that eating carbohydrates will encourage and increase your sugar cravings and the 3pm energy slump so try to cut as many of these out of your diet as possible.

Ways you can do this are as follows:

• Eat a salad for lunch instead of a sandwich or pasta.

• Go to a juice bar for a nourishing juice instead of a coffee shop to avoid the temptation of having a cake with that coffee.

• Consider buying a juicer and juice at home. You can drink in a day what you might have had in a week and you will feel the vitality almost immediately.

Find a Support Buddy

Humans are not meant to be alone or completely self-sufficient. Our very souls demand and crave interaction with each other.

This is why it is a good idea to find a friend or join a local group of like-minded people who have the same or similar goals as you.

Salisbury Super Sports offers a supportive exercise environment for you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
