Getting the right equipment is only half the story..
If you have the drive, determination and dedication, then achieving your goals can happen.
Losing the fat takes hard work, determination, commitment, and a few sacrifices! It all depends how badly you want it, you need to want it more than anything.
Those that get the results don’t make excuses and they don't get side tracked, the only question you need to ask yourself is.. “ How Badly Do I Want This?
So, how badly DO you want to achieve your goals?  Are you Willing to Give it Your Best Shot and Stay Focused? – If so then I’m here to help you …

Here are my 10 rules getting the body you desire…
  1. Start the day with a lemon water – great for boosting the metabolism and flushing out toxins. You never want to skip breakfast either! Having a breakfast rich in protein is a great way to start the day. It will keep you fuller for longer and stop cravings!
  2. Make healthier eating choices rather than falling for the latest fad diet. If you can’t sustain the diet you have a strong chance of packing on the weight again and undo all your hard work. Starvation and cutting out food groups isn't a lifestyle or a long term plan. 
  3. Think about the 80/20 rule – you want to eat healthy at least 80% of the time (90% is better!). And allow yourself treats 20% of the time. It is OK to have a cheat meal each week, plan it, enjoy it and move on!
  4. Avoid the liquid calories – I’m sure you all know … alcohol! Also avoid soft drinks and juices (unless they are freshly made in front of your eyes and contain 70% veg and 30% fruit) Stay clear of store bought juices, they are mostly sugar and empty calories (you are better off just eating the fruit).
  5. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day. Try adding lemon, lime and mint leaves in your water (it’s a great way to flush out toxins). Other options include herbal teas (green tea, peppermint, chamomile, and rooibos to name a few)
  6. Eat real, wholesome, nutritious food: Cut out as much white sugar and white flour from your diet as possible, including processed foods. Load up on good fats such as nuts, seeds, coconut and olive oil, avocado, and proteins such as fish, beef, lean chicken, turkey, and eggs. Eat good carbs such as brown rice, sweet potatoes and plenty of green veggies and some fruit.
  7. Watch your portion size: This may mean eating 4-6 smaller meals / snacks each day instead of the usual 3 large meals. Eating every couple of hours can help to level out your blood sugar levels and boost your metabolism.
  8. Get your friends and family on board to support you (or even join you) on your health & fitness journey! Fat-loss and sticking to your workout plan is always more fun with friends and family.
  9. Be organised: It really doesn't take that long. You know the saying “Failing to plan is the same as planning to fail” … it’s true! Get rid of the crap in your cupboards and fridge! Stock up on good nutritious food. Plan your meals and snacks in advance and make enough for leftovers to take to work the next day.
  10. Set yourself a workout routine for the week which combines strength training, cardio, circuit and interval training for maximum results. Plan when you will exercise – what days/times you will train, what sort of training you will do (cardio/strength) ,what classes you will attend, and stick to it.
Good luck - and never give up !

Yours in great health
