Wellness isn't an indulgent treat, it's a lifestyle choice.

Starting a new fitness regime can be difficult for some to get their head round and with so many ‘how-to-guides’ out there we can see why, but everyone has to start somewhere. Here at Gaia Spa, we believe that fitness and spa isn’t just an indulgent treat or a ‘one-month-wonder’, we encourage our guests and members to join with an open mind as we guide them into a world of wellness and showcase different methods that help to achieve this. With this in mind, we asked our personal trainer Charlotte for her top tips for fitness success...

Eating well

Having a balanced diet with protein, carbohydrates, fibre and fats will help you with your fitness and well-being.

Setting a goal

Ask yourself what you would like to achieve whether it's to improve your fitness, lose weight or muscle gain by setting a realistic goal and logging your progress along the way will help keep yourself motivated. For example, you can do this by setting your goal weight, setting the time you would like to achieve this goal and then seek professional help from a personal trainer will also help you achieve this goal. This will also help with extra motivation too and tracking your progress is a great way to keep motivated.

Workout partner

Going to the gym or classes by yourself can sometimes feel a bit scary when it shouldn't be. Getting yourself a workout partner to join the gym with you and attended class can help you take the step into the gym or classes a lot easier. It can be anyone -  a friend, Brother, Sister, Mum or Dad. It can also keep you motivated by helping each other and supporting each other by spurring each other on.
