Founder Glynn Roberts’ top boot camp tips
Top Nutrition Tips:
Nutrition is 75% of the battle. If you want to lose weight you need to create a calorie deficit but this does not mean you should starve yourself; your body needs a basal amount of calories to function. Don’t be scared of fats and carbohydrates; your body needs them as well as proteins. It is important to focus on nutritional timing; the best time to consume carbohydrates is on days when you are most active. Be consistent and be patient! There are no quick fixes to getting real results. Top Workout Tips:
When I train, I have one focus in mind – intensity. This shocks the body into change which high intensity interval training is particularly good for. I change my workouts up, they can include anything from tyre flipping to kettlebells – this is something our boot camps are great for! Top Motivation Tips:
Do it for yourself and be the best you can. Exercise is not just physical; it’s a state of mind. Make it part of your life, not a chore.
