Are you ready for summer?

Don’t worry, help is at hand – if you follow this 28-day programme, you too can flaunt a well-toned body on the beach next summer. Start your programme now and then maintain the programme to stay fit and looking hot!!

Are you fit?

Can you run upstairs without panting for breath? Take the family dog for a long walk and arrive home without feeling totally exhausted? Swim a couple of lengths at the local pool and not feel as though you had swum in the Olympics? If you can’t, it looks as if you, along with many other people, are slightly unfit. Not only that, you may be carrying slightly too much weight which is adding to your lack of fitness. However, the difference is that, simply by looking for and finding this website, you have decided to do something about it.

Feeling fit and being fit are essentially two different things. We can’t all afford the luxury of employing a personal trainer like some of the top stars to attain a wonderful sylph-like figure, but then again with a little time and effort on your part you can look just as good, if not better, even if it does entail having to forego that daily bar of chocolate or can of fizzy drink. But surely, at the end of the day, looking and feeling so much healthier is worth the initial input.

Feeling fit

Good health and feeling fit mean different things to different people. It could be the ability to do things that were impossible before, taking part in physical activities, feeling better about the way you look, feeling younger or feeling more active and alive when you wake up in the morning.

The essence of this 28-day programme is to illustrate that the secret of good health is a combined programme of healthy eating and exercise, changing bad habits for good habits, learning to listen to your body and making sure it remains at the optimum level of good health. So don’t sit around poring over diet sheets; take time to work your way through this 28-day regime and find out for yourself what getting fit is all about.


Before embarking upon this programme, it is wise to consult with your GP if you suffer from any of the following medical conditions:

• You are pregnant or breastfeeding

• You have diabetes

• Have anaemia

• Have diabetes

• Are underweight

• Are under stress

• Are taking medication that cannot be stopped

Before starting

If you are really serious, write out on a sheet of paper your reasons for wanting to get fit (and possibly also wanting to lose weight too) and set yourself some realistic goals to aim for but don’t make them too extreme. Perhaps you want to go on holiday and wear a bathing costume for the first time in years, or feel confident enough to wear shorts during the summer; both are sound and reasonable targets that are achievable. When you feel fit, you automatically feel so much better about yourself, physically and psychologically:

When I get fit:

I will look better on my summer holiday

I will be able to wear a bathing costume

I will be able to wear cropped tops

My skin and complexion will look better

I will feel more energetic and active.
