Switch it up
Resistance training (lifting weights) is ideal for toning different parts of your body, while interval training will help keep your metabolism working throughout the day. Watch as fitness fanatic and YouTuber Whitney Simmons shares her tips on how to grow your glutes at home or the gym.
Tell yourself you have the power
If you feel in control, you’re more likely to make good decisions and keep going. Remember, the journey to fitness isn’t linear and there will be times when the results may slow down or reach a complete stand-still. Don’t give up!
Remember to cool down
Cooling down helps your body recover after exertion, and gives you time to reflect on what your body has just been able to achieve. It will also help you prevent injuries. Not sure where to start? This video might help:
