Goodbye January. Perhaps the over-enthusiastic gym newbies can calm down now? Every year I observe with a wry smile – but more often frustration – as my local health club is packed to the rafters with sweating ‘January gym-maniacs’.
However, February is here now (hurray) and normality can start to resume as the fitness frenzy subsides. The newbies are already realising that the strict regime and dieting is not sustainable. The regulars can get their favourite cross-trainers back!
Most people were swept off their feet by January’s deluge of detox diets; cleanse diets, New Year’s resolutions, fitness regimes, and more detox diets.
Perhaps you were seduced by one of them and already have fallen off the wagon and slipped back into your old habits. Well if this sounds like you, do not despair. You’re not alone and you are not a failure.
