With an Instagram feed brimming with simple-yet-delicious recipe videos, before and after weight loss photos (all showing dizzying success) and simple HIIT workouts, it’s no wonder Joe Wicks is a global phenomenon. We caught up with The Body Coach to find out how we can (star) jump onboard the lean train… it’s a lot easier than you may think!
1 It’s all in the planning “The first thing you want to do is prep your meals. Get into the habit of getting your food on a Sunday then preparing your meals for the week. This will encourage you to eat well and stay away from junk food and ready meals.”
2 Let’s get physical “The next step is to increase your exercise. Start doing 20-25 minutes per day, 4-5 days per week – Once you get going and start to build momentum you’ll see great results”.
3 Lemme take a selfie “It’s really good to take progress pictures of yourself,. Take a selfie every month so you see the real change in your body shape.”
4 Tip the scales “Throw away the sad step! Don’t measure your progress on the scales as this is not going to motivate you.”
5 Focus on the short-term “Work towards goals. Maybe you’ve got a holiday booked or an event coming up so really focus on that to help you stay motivated.”
