Ask Angie

We ask Angie, PT and Founder of StudioBelle Fitness in Warminster, how to get the illusive fresh start, but on YOUR terms.

Q: I want to get on the January hype, am I too late?

Absolutely not! I often find lots of customers vow to get on the fitness train in January but it can be such a crazy month that they don't get going until February when life's a little less hectic.


Q: I’m keen to make my days more active, how can I build more movement into everyday life?

It's simpler than we think, a morning walk to work or to take the children to school, an evening stroll with friends, telling yourself you shouldn't sit down on that sofa till gone 7 when it's usually 5.30pm. Even a few flights of stairs every hour, it can all make a massive difference to your day and your week.


Q: Cardio first or strength first? (Big topic!)

Personally I'd always go Strength with a cardio finisher, it means I can focus on my Strength with plenty of fuel in the tank and finish on a big cardio buzz! But do what you love, if you find what works for you it will be easier to motivate yourself to do it.


Q: Any must - DON’Ts for starting out on a fitness journey?

Don't go out of the gates like a racehorse, they have one chance and you have 7 chances every week. I find the people who stay consistent are the ones who 'don't' aim too high too soon. If you've been doing no exercise for the last few months, a steady start back will help you stay consistent. Start with one session a week, when you're nailing that one, up it to two until you're hitting 3/4 sessions a week. Make sure you include some active recovery in so it's not all work and no play.
