Forget sickly sweet advent calendars filled with chocolate, we’re giving you something MUCH better this December. 24 days filled with fitness tips, treats and advice to see you through the festive season in the very best of health.
1st December. The bonus month
Most of us leave our resolutions until January, leaving December free to decimate our fitness with a glut of food and drink. But what if you mixed things up and used December as your month to really push yourself and achieve your fitness goals? We’re offering 20% off all 6 week intense plans booked by the 15th December 2017. Our intense plans include 3-4 PT sessions per week and nutrition advice, all based around your specific goals. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote code 1Dec. Imagine how smug you’ll be as everyone creeps sheepishly to the gym in January!
2nd December. The winter warmer
The first Saturday of December and it’s getting cold. Really cold. But rather than whacking up the heating and sitting indoors all weekend, challenge yourself to get outdoors and do something good for your fitness. Pile on the layers, do your warm up indoors, then head outside for a brisk walk, jog or run. Keeping fit in the winter is not only about our physical health, but our mental wellbeing too. To give yourself a little energy boost, try Gin Gins Caramel from The Ginger People pre run which are packed with 30% ginger, said to reduce inflammation, sooth sore muscles and promote a healthy immune system.
3rd December. Getting the tree
Sunday 3rd December and like many people around the UK you’ll be heading into the loft and getting down those Christmas decorations ready for the annual ceremony of putting up the tree. Ah, the tree. If you usually plump for a real tree, why not head down to a Christmas tree farm where you can roam the forest looking for just the right tree (burning around 100 calories in 30 minutes), and really put the effort in by cutting it down yourself (eating up around 260 calories in 30 minutes) loading it onto the car (a bit of strength work) and proudly bringing it home (unlimited feel-good!).
4th December. Monday means yoga!
What better way to start the first Monday of December than with a yoga session. Yoga is about bringing balance between body and mind, it can help to open joints, strengthen your core, increase flexibility as well as help you to lose some of that festive stress that tends to accumulate at this time of year. We’ve teamed up with Blossom Yoga Wear to offer 15% off their Namastar Pink Star Print High Waisted Printed Yoga Pants, made from high performance quality technical fabric that make them ideal for yoga, Pilates, the gym and more! Just quote code Namastar15. Valid until 31st December 17.
5th December. Give the gift of fitness
It’s the 5th December and that means the present buying should be in full swing! You could of course plump for the usual socks for dad, perfume for mum and gift set for your other half but how about giving them something a little bit more inspired? This month we’re offering 50% off single PT sessions purchased as gifts for your friends and family in December. So for £30, you can treat a lucky someone to a session with a Right Path Fitness trainer and set them on the path to a healthier, happier 2018! Email email@example.com and quote code 5Dec. Get in quick though as we only have 50 of these gift sessions available. 1 per person. Quote code 5Dec.
6th December. Wednesday weights day
It’s Wednesday and that means weights day! Don’t skimp on your weights at Christmas as they can be really beneficial for managing that other kind of weight- the one that tends to accumulate around your mid-section. Aim for reps that add up to 25 in total, like 5 sets of 5 or 6 sets of 4. And if your muscles are feeling the strain, you can use a product like Westlab Muscle Salt Spray which includes Epsom salt, spearmint and eucalyptus to revive tired limbs and joints. The high magnesium content is said to help relax muscles and prevent muscular cramps.
7th December. Dodge the sweet tin
When Thursday hits and the weekend in on the horizon, our willpower can dip, especially when the office is packed with open boxes of chocolate and mince pies just waiting to be devoured. Although nice as a treat, regularly snacking on low nutritional value, high sugar and high fat goodies can have a serious effect on your waistline. Instead, do yourself a favour and pack some snacks for the day, particularly if you’ve trained or plan to train that day. CocoTop are high energy snacks featuring protein rich coconut, dietary fibre and other nutrients. Other good snacks to pack include bananas, nuts or even porridge that you can pop in the microwave.
