It's all about that bass!

Ditch the snooze button!
Go to bed early, organise your gym clothes for the following morning and set your alarm. When your alarm goes off for that 6:00am fitness class you will need to jump out of bed, get dressed and go, no time to think about that extra hours sleep. Make the commitment to yourself to wake up and participate in all those early morning gym classes. Those who exercise in the morning are most likely to stick to their exercise regime when compared to those who exercise in the afternoon.
Hire a trainer!
Hiring a personal trainer is great for those who don’t know what they are doing. They can show you around the weights and machines and build a specific program based off your health goals and problem areas. Having someone to teach proper technique and execution is fantastic to help you meet your fitness goals. Once you get the hang of the program you can easily execute it yourself.
Find somebody on social media who's fitness/body image inspires you. Do you want her abs? Her flat tummy? Her perky bum? Follow people who will inspire you and motivate you to work and push yourself everyday.
