How Hertfordshire residents can get fit quickly and easily this spring

Published in General

An all-too-familiar feeling for many of us at this time of year is the dread that comes with seeing the weather gradually improve with the arrival of the great British spring, only to realise that our New Year’s Resolution of getting fit stalled in the second week of January. You might be cursing the fact right now that you’re nowhere near achieving that physique you were hoping to have attained by now, and which you had intended to attract you some admiring glances on the beach this summer.

There’s no reason to panic too much, though. The truth is that you’ve still got time to accomplish many of your fitness goals without rushing things, which could – of course – be counterproductive given the risk of sustaining an injury in the process.

So, here are some of our favourite tips for what to do instead with your spring fitness regime.

How about discovering this gorgeous county’s great outdoors?

Fruitful exercise doesn’t always have to involve sweating it out on an exercise bike! Indeed, the rapidly improving conditions and brightening skies might tempt you to spend a bit of time wandering around Hertfordshire’s many fine towns and tourist attractions, the latter encompassing the likes of Berkhamsted Castle, Hatfield House, Knebworth House and Watford Museum.

This especially verdant corner of England is also blessed with plentiful rewarding and intriguing public footpaths, ranging from The Ridgeway and the Icknield Way Path to the Hertfordshire Way and Hertfordshire Chain Walk. 

Keep it short and sweaty

If you’re the kind of person who struggles to find the time in a hectic schedule for exercise, it’s worth noting that quality is definitely better than quantity when it comes to getting fit. Short and explosive workouts are preferable to 100 reps of a particular move if you want to obtain impressive results.

Switch from processed to fresh foods

Most of us appreciate that our diets are at least as crucial to us attaining our health and fitness goals as anything we might do in the gym. However, it’s also all too easy to end up eating way too many processed foods – or to jump to the other extreme of pursuing a vegan, low-carb or Paleo diet. Instead, simply embrace fresh, high-quality foods that won’t leave you obsessively calorie-counting.

Take advantage of our latest special offer for gym membership

There are many reasons why Manor of Groves is such a popular choice for a gym membership in Sawbridgeworth – ranging from our sophisticated three-tier Techno Gym suite itself, right through to the varied classes we offer in the likes of Pilates, cardio attack, Zumba and hatha yoga.

However, there’s one more compelling justification that we can give you for registering with our Health Club in March – the zero joining fee we’ll charge you to do so. Even better than that, you can also enjoy use of the gym for the rest of this month for free.
