Maintain Your Summer Body

Achieving your desired summer body to begin with takes a serious level of dedication and a strict nutritional plan. However, maintaining your beach ready physique can be just as difficult.

DITCH THE EXCUSES BUT NOT THE GYM
People use bad weather as an excuse to avoid working out, but don't let a bit of rain get in your way. It's important to make a clear distinction between exhausted and lazy. If you've trained to the point of exhaustion, then taking a day off is best for recovery. But if you happen to catch yourself feeling lazy, just remember that no one has ever regretted a workout. Even if you can't bring 100 percent intensity, it's a lot better than not going at all.

Exercises are undoubtedly important, but your diet is just as integral to maintaining the best body you can. Bringing us to point number two.

MAKE HEALTHY EATING CHOICES & STAY HYDRATED
If you want to get lean or stay lean, it's important to cut out refined carbohydrates and sugar. That doesn't mean you need to completely cut out all carbs but rather stick to eating complex carbohydrates that can be found in foods like wheat, corn, rice, oats, barley, quinoa, spelt, rye and in fruits, vegetables and legumes. The basic rule is to try and cook your meals from scratch using fresh ingredients that are in season (meal planning is key). Also make sure to drink your daily water intake for hydration from within.

BEAUTY ON THE OUTSIDE
Of course we are talking about looking after your skin from head to toe. It's important to maintain a skincare regime using exfoliators, lotions & oils, for the whole body not just for summer but all year round. To keep your skin firm and cellulite free, we also recommend a course of LPG Endermologie, one of our most popular treatments here at the clinic. This kind of treatment is perfect as an added step to your fitness & healthy eating lifestyle... not to mention it's fantastic for those stubborn areas of our body, where fat doesn't seem to shift no matter what we do.

Endermologie is a non-surgical treatment used for toning the skin, removing cellulite, reshaping the body & slimming down. To date, no other method has been found to be as reliably and as effectively as the endermological massage.
