Trying to build a workout routine but struggling to start? We’ve all been there. Trust us.
So, to help you out, we asked A.A Ambassador Olivia Ippoliti — a certified Pilates instructor and the co-founder of Total Tone — to share her top tips for creating healthy training habits.
Whether you’re trying to hit reset or start from scratch, keep reading for Olivia’s pro advice — including the one common mistake you should try to avoid.
I always start my day with movement, whether it’s a Pilates workout, a run, or a walk. I always feel better for moving my body and have from a young age.
Some weeks are better than others. I’ve learned not to feel guilty if I take time to relax and recover. I generally work out five to six days a week and I prioritise stretching. I stick to it by setting up my workout routine at the start of the week and mixing up my training.
Write a realistic weekly schedule that you can stick to, including rest days. I feel like this is said so much but can’t be emphasised enough. [It’s] a simple step to ensure you aren’t overwhelmed when resetting. Call me old school, but I love physically writing things down.
Spoil yourself after a workout with a jump in the ocean, treat yourself to a massage or a bubble bath, or your favourite café. A rush of dopamine reinforces specific behaviours as worthwhile.
Establishing a routine with sleep is beneficial in reducing stress levels. For me, this is something that has improved significantly by getting to bed early. It’s no secret our mood improves after a good night's rest, so why not make it a priority?
Typically, I see people creating fitness routines that aren’t realistic. It might work for a couple of months, but is it sustainable?
I’d take it back to what’s realistic with your current work or life schedule. Have that plan and make it a non-negotiable
I’ve been trying to implement more strength work in my training and prioritise time with my loved ones. I try really hard not to sweat the small things and look at the incredible things in front of me.
