Are you Beach Ready?

We think everybody is beach ready!

Fingers crossed that this year we have a summer as great as last year! It’s a really amazing time, I love it! But, with the warm weather comes the dreaded feeling of body confidence. As it gets warmer, we tend to wear less clothes, and that means more of our bodies are exposed, not only to the sun, but to ourselves and others!


Now, I’m here to tell you that body confidence has nothing to do with having the perfectbody. Not at all, it’s about feeling comfortable in your own body, feeling happy and secure no matter how you look.


However, I can honestly say, from my own experience, that I definitely feel moreconfident the better shape I’m in. I feel better int-shirts, better in swimwear, better topless (oo err!)…you get the picture.


Now, many of us tend to think that we have to look like all those Instagram pictures of super amazingbodies and if we don’t then we have failed and mustto cover up.

Let me tell you, improving your body just a very small bit will increase your body confidence enormously. Forget trying to match those perfect bodies, just try to improve and work on your own. We are all different and even a small step forward is definitely a step in the right direction.


I speak to a lot of people, and sometimes they say that they can’t get to the gym 3 times a week so it’s not going to benefit them. Well, that’s wrong! Twice per week is progress, even once is progress. I’ve seen it all too many times before – doing too much then leads to negative progress and eventually those people end up not coming at all. It’s a bit like the tortoise and the hare, slow, steady and consistent always wins in the end.


So, there’s nothing stopping you now! You know that even if you work on your body once per week you are making progress towards yourimproving your health and fitness, your dream physique or just feeling that little bit more confident.
