Home Icon

As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, April is the perfect time to kick-start your fitness journey and start getting active. Here are some tips to help you get started this month.

Schedule time in your diary

Just like any other important appointment, add exercise into your diary. This will help you prioritise your fitness goals and make them a part of your daily routine.

Create a playlist

Music can be great for uplifting your mood and motivating you. Create a playlist with your favourite upbeat songs to keep you energised while you exercise.

Walk everywhere for the day

Try to incorporate more walking into your day. Whether it’s walking to work, taking the stairs instead of the lift, or going for a walk during your lunch break, every step counts.

Park further away

If you drive, try parking further away from your destination. This simple change can add more walking to your day and increase your daily step count.

Competition with friends or family

Challenge your friends or family members to a step count battle, a race, or a workout competition. This can make your fitness journey more enjoyable and motivate you to push yourself harder.

Prioritise showing up

The most important part of any fitness journey is consistency. Even if you don’t feel like exercising, show up and do what you can. Remember, any activity is better than no activity.

By incorporating these tips into your routine, you can make April your most active month yet. So, lace up your sneakers and let’s get moving!
