Winter has arrived, bringing with it cooler temperatures and cosy nights indoors. It's all too easy to let the winter blues dampen your motivation and throw your fitness goals off track. But fear not! At Balance, we're here to help you beat the seasonal slump and stay focused on your fitness journey.

  1. Set Winter-Specific Goals: The colder months provide you a great opportunity to set goals that are tailored to the season. Whether it's improving your endurance for sports, building strength for outdoor activities, or maintaining your overall wellbeing during winter, setting goals will provide you with a sense of purpose, helping to keep you motivated.

  2. Find Winter-Friendly Activities: Don't let the weather limit your exercise options. Explore some of our awesome indoor group classes, or wind-down with rejuvenating wellness sessions to embrace some much needed me-time. At Balance, we offer a wide range of options to suit all interests and fitness levels, ensuring you have plenty of exciting choices to stay motivated.

  3. Buddy Up: Winter can be more enjoyable when you have a fitness friend by your side. Find a workout partner who shares your goals and challenges, and motivate each other to stay on track. Not only will you have someone to hold you accountable, but you'll also have a source of encouragement and friendly competition to keep the fire burning.

  4. Keep It Varied: The key to staying motivated is to keep your workouts different. Mix up your routine with varied classes, try new equipment, or explore our fresher, flexier gym plans. We even have a heated pool at Mayfield for lap swimming! Our expert trainers are here to guide you, ensuring you stay engaged and excited about your fitness journey, whatever the season.

  5. Warm Up With Holistics: Winter is the perfect time to focus on overall wellness. Nurture your mind and body by taking part in one of our many yoga classes, or try the ever-popular Reformer Pilates. We provide a holistic approach to fitness and wellbeing, helping you find the perfect balance between physical exertion and mindful self-care.

  6. Celebrate Your Progress: Don't forget to celebrate your achievements, no matter how small they may seem! Winter is a time to acknowledge your results and how far you've come. Treat yourself to a small reward or share your milestones with the Balance community by tagging us on Facebook or Instagram. Inspire others to keep pushing forward.

With the support and guidance of Balance, you can maintain your motivation, conquer the seasonal blues, and continue working towards your goals. And don't forget! If you're our Mover of the Month, you'll score a $50 Wests Eftpos gift voucher to spend anywhere that accepts Eftpos.
