Is your fitness motivation waning now that your new year’s resolution has weakened its grip? Maybe it’s time for a little help from your friends…


THE TOP OF THE YEAR is the time when we feel most motivated to stick to a new exercise regime. Gym memberships soar, and streets and parks become busy with people jogging, skipping and pedalling away those Christmas calories.

Come February, though, our good intentions start to fall by the wayside, with gyms and leisure centres reporting the biggest attendance drops in early spring. It’s still cold and dark and summer’s beach-body goals seem a long way off, making it all too easy to give up and go home…

But there’s a simple way to reignite January’s fire in the belly: look for strength in numbers. It’s a trick we discovered in the HFG office and now we’re all committed to motivating each other to pull on our trainers and get moving. Whether it’s a lunchtime walk en masse, an exercise class close to work, or an all-day steps challenge, we’ve found a group mentality that’s hugely beneficial in keeping our fitness on track.
