As the New Year kicks into gear, we can feel the buzz of excitement and motivation to make steps towards positive changes in our lives, especially our wellbeing. At Next Gen Health Clubs, we believe in creating a supportive community that uplifts and encourages individuals to strive for a healthier and happier life. Strap in tight, we’re spilling our top tips for making 2024 your healthiest year, covering all the elements that will ultimately guide you throughout your journey and help you be the best version of yourself.
Consistency is Key
Instead of striving for perfection, let’s put the spotlight on maintaining consistency and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how quickly you start to experience the benefits. Research suggests that forming a new habit typically takes 66 days. Our Next Step Program includes a personalised exercise program, which means every member will have dedicated expert guidance from a personal trainer. During these 1-1 programming sessions they’ll share tips and tricks to help you stay on track and ultimately reach and maintain your goals within record time. Before you know it, your visits to the health club will become an effortless part of your daily routine and fit seamlessly into your lifestyle.
Find Your Community
Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals can significantly impact your motivation and success. At Next Gen Health and Lifestyle Clubs, we pride ourselves on being a social club where you can meet new people and form strong connections. Our social tennis games, squash matches and group fitness classes provide opportunities to connect with fellow members who share your passion for a healthy lifestyle, making your fitness journey enjoyable and fulfilling. Not to mention, there’s nothing like a gym buddy to help you remain accountable throughout the year!
Mix it up!
Keeping your workouts exciting and engaging is essential for maintaining motivation long term, it’s effortless when you have everything you love under one roof! Take advantage of a huge range of fun activities, all included in your Next Gen membership, whether you want to feel the burn in a HIIT Class, take a dip in the outdoor pool or have a hit on the tennis courts, there’s something new you can try each day of the week. By diversifying your exercise routine and trying different workouts, you will challenge your body in new ways, prevent plateau and discover activities that you truly enjoy.
Training with a mate is a fantastic way to add a social element to your fitness routine. In addition to maintaining consistency and staying accountable, you’re also replenishing your social wellbeing by adding an extra level of enjoyment to your workouts. Both staff and fellow members will greet you with warm smiles as you make your way around the club and the blend between physical activity and social interactions will have you feeling fantastic after every visit. Whether you choose to participate in group fitness classes together or share a personal training session, the support and camaraderie of your friends will make your fitness journey feel like a shared accomplishment.
Take the Next Step and Set Yourself Up for Success
Do you know what’s more motivating than a clear destination? The roadmap to get there! Setting a specific and measurable goal is crucial to staying motivated and tracking your progress. Our Next Step program is a 1-1 with a personal trainer, including a Body Composition Scan, which provides valuable insights into your current fitness level, body composition and overall health. This knowledge will help you and your trainer set realistic benchmarks along with a tailored program to optimise your chances of success.
