The January Joneses

I don’t keep up with the fitness January joneses, every year I step back during January as the fitness industry scrambles to sign up clients during the January Rush. However once the first tub of protein powder is finished or the 2 week aloe vera detox has commenced I notice that  February is full of people who think they have “failed”. I have taken the liberty of drafting a simple 4 week program to help people refocus and to generate new levels of commitment and self-belief.

I love the simplicity of this little 4 week program. Simplicity, in an industry drowning in “systems” and “methods”.

How many times do I complete the session – complete 3 times a week, for a total of 4 weeks, which equates to a total of 12 sessions.

NB – Start at the same point every time.

  • Walk as fast and as far as you can for 7 minutes
  • Once you reach 7 minutes on your clock, STOP and mark the point with nail varnish or tippex.
  • Make sure the mark is visible. Reset your clock and try and get back to your starting point within the 7 mins.
  • Every time you perform the walk, your goal is to beat the previous mark. DON’T start to run, (a fast one)
  • The objective is to try and go a little bit further every time you attempt it.
