Spring into shape at Trail Aquatic Centre

Now is the perfect time for you to challenge yourself. Use summer as your motivation.

Summer’s fast approaching and it’s time to start thinking about getting healthy and in shape for summer, and getting out those shorts and bathing suits.

So many of us tell ourselves that this is the year I’ll get in shape, but when it comes time to actually start exercising, we stumble.

For some of us it’s about getting back into the gym but not really knowing where or how to get started, so we aimlessly go about it without any real plan or program, spending too little or too long in the gym.

For those of us who have only ever done cardio exercise, we find that cardio alone just isn’t giving us the results we want. Then there are those of us who have never set foot inside a gym before, and that seems intimidating thinking that everyone else there knows what they are doing, and yet we don’t even know where and how to get started let alone how to use the machines.

Either scenario, after weeks spent in the gym, without seeing the results we’re after, we wonder why we’ve spent all the time there to begin with, and over 80 per cent of new members end up quitting within the first three months.

Even with the best of intentions, it can be hard to stay motivated and reach our goals.

Studies show that 85 per cent of all individuals who have a personal trainer achieve the results they want, and maintain their exercise program.

Now is the perfect time for you to challenge yourself. Use summer as your motivation.

A qualified personal trainer will design a program just for you, and give you the guidance and support you need to see you through.

Don’t let another summer pass you by without reaching your goals.
