Now that the country is entering the Spring months and the weather is getting warmer, now is the perfect time to start preparing your body to be bikini ready. Remember though, it isn’t just about looking great, it’s about feeling great. Follow these tips and you’ll have the mental and physical fitness in time to sign up for a June mud race!


“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”

We have all used the “tomorrow” excuse. I take my fitness seriously...tomorrow. I will start a new diet... tomorrow. I will start running... tomorrow.

Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today. Create a realistic plan that you can set a timeline for with specific goals.

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”

Most people set themselves up for failure by setting goals that are impractical. Whatever your goals may be, the likelihood of that happening in two weeks is slim to none. And most who actually achieve those goals in such short periods of time generally don’t sustain it.

Consistency and dedication lead to true change. Set long term goals and deadlines that you can slowly work at.

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”


To stay committed, choose work outs and exercises that you enjoy. It may be called a work out but it should feel more like an activity you actually enjoy doing. By doing something that makes you feel good you will look forward to doing it tomorrow.

If you hate running, try the elliptical. If you know you have week knees, try swimming. If you know you get bored easily, take different classes. It is up to you to evolve through this process. Remember, don’t make excuses!

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”

Take this quote figuratively and literally. Be energetic and stay energetic through proper nutrition. Never skip meals and make wiser choices with what you put in your body. And of course, never ever give up!

These are all great tips to motivate you to get started in any goal you have, not just getting back in shape.
