What is a "beach body"?

It's been a busy few weeks here at Fit Harrogate with our Birthday celebrations and pop up events with our gym and fitness wear. We are planning our next #fitupnorth event and it's lovely to see you returning to join us, we have some new faces too! "Summer Body Blast" is aimed at helping you feel your very best on that beach and by the pool. The premise is one that I battle with.

Baby steps

The problem with January is it's so... bleurgh.  It's cold, wet, grey and grumpy. It's the time of year where all you really want to do is hibernate. I feel your pain. No, you don't want to eat bloody salad and you certainly don't want to get out of bed. Unless you're super motivated that is and if you ARE one of those people, bottle what you have and sell it to the rest of us!  The one month in the year where promises are made to ourselves to be better in one way or another is the one month where anything exciting seems like a distant memory or too far into the future. We all know, however, summer will...
