An in home personal trainer can help improve your health and well being this winter. The Christmas period is well under way, so temptations are plentiful, which can make gaining weight incredibly easy. From mince pies to a couple of pints after work, it can be easy to gain weight in the winter months. Thankfully, with the help of a mobile personal trainer, there is no need to worry about gaining weight this winter.

Know What You Are Drinking

There is an array of festive drinks to catch you out over winter, from egg-nog lattes to festive cocktails, it is important that you know exactly what you are drinking. The majority of drinks on offer over the Christmas period contain more calories than a sandwich. Scary, right? So it is vital that you think carefully before indulging in a festive drink. Furthermore, many of these drinks contain addictive sugars which mean you can’t help but want more, this can make it incredibly easy to gain weight in winter. The best way to avoid these extra calories is to avoid them all together, although that can be difficult to do. However, if you stick to your usual Americano or a nice glass of wine, you will avoid those unnecessary additional calories contained in the indulgent Christmas drinks. Another great way to reduce your intake of these festive drinks is to be the designated driver, then you are completely removing the temptation to indulge in sugary cocktails and excessive pints. Furthermore, it gives you a great excuse not to drink, relieving the pressure to drink from friends and family.

Get Plenty of Sleep

The festive season usually involves a lot of celebrations, which also means a lot of late nights. From office parties to dinners out, you are likely to be missing out on some much needed sleep.

It is important to get enough rest so that you can keep up your fitness routines year round, and an in home personal trainer can help you find the motivation and determination to keep going.
