Joanna Hall, in the photo, said that a common mistake that people make when exercising goes too heavy and too fast. Every January we make ourselves exactly the same promises when it comes to getting fit, is not it? This year it will really be the year in which we stick to a strict schedule of the gym or perform 10k. But according to sports scientist and fitness instructor Joanna Hall, we are setting ourselves up for failures with our grand plans and rigid approach. This Friday, many of our fitness resolutions have already come off, suggests an analysis by app Strava to perform. A common mistake, says Joanna, goes too fast, too fast. She says: & # 39; People often launch themselves into a new fitness program, thinking: "I'm going to do everything this time." "There may be an idea that we have to press the" stop "button for the rest of our lives to get in shape, but – surprise, surprise – people think they can not keep up with this approach." stumbling block, she says, is too much to estimate how much you have to do to make a difference in your condition. "I think people have this idea that they have to do at least one hour of exercise a day to make it count But it does not have to take that long – I personally never do a full hour of exercise, "she says." Starting with sports as a beginner, or if you have fallen out of habit, can be a huge mountain seem to climb, but in fact it does little and often – and it does well – that you will make a meaningful change in terms of how you feel, how you perform and what you look like. she this year a unique training program for Mail Plus, with which she hopefully, people once and for all on a mania r will learn that is not only effective, but also sustainable and realistic. "What I've created is something that's simple and easy to follow, but designed to achieve results," she explains.
The fitness instructor, on the photo, has created a unique training program for Mail Plus, which, she hopes, will help people go into the practice of exercise. Joanna has four video workouts that you can access through the Mail Plus Health website, each lasting 15 minutes, based on simple stretching exercises, body weight exercises such as squats and yoga-inspired movements. Each workout is designed to address a specific problem: posture, toning of your stomach, heart health or overall strength and toning. There are options everywhere to make exercises easier or more difficult, depending on your fitness level. The simplest level is suitable for a complete beginner, says Joanna – with a reminder that you should always consult your doctor before starting a new exercise program.

She is not an ex-athlete, a reality star or a Twenties Instagramer whose only log-in data seems to be what they look like in a bikini.

Instead she is a lively, warm, working mother-of-person from Hertfordshire, who describes herself as & # 39; north of 50 & # 39 ;. Crucially, she has 25 years of experience, including a function as fitness expert of the TV on this morning. She exudes good health and positivity, but also empathy. Although she has worked with celebrities, including helping Ben Fogle and James Cracknell prepare for their polar challenge in 2009 – she understands that most of us do not have the body or budget of an A-lister. I am a real person, with a real life & # 39 ;, she says. I understand the limitations that people face when it comes to physical exercise, whether it is work or family commitments. & # 39; I try to practice ten to fifteen minutes every day, perform postures and stretching, and try to walk for at least 20 minutes. But it does not always happen. I am not an angel and am not a mere lover. "(She is self-deprecating – her figure is slothy and toned on every standard.) What is not up for discussion is her bona fide expertise, with a degree in sports science, studied at Loughborough University, one of the world's leading centers for research into physical activity and fitness The key to Joanna's program is technology, which guides you in her Mail Plus Health video & # 39; s. & # 39; It's about quality, no quantity, movement & # 39; 39 ;, she says. & # 39; I believe in a simple exercise and do it very well. "In the video I`m giving a lot of tips and tricks to make every move more meaningful. & # 39; For example, instead of just saying that you have to stretch arms above your head – as some instructors might do – she says to focus on reaching up through your middle finger and holding space between your earlobes and your shoulders. & # 39; This helps to activate the shoulder muscles properly, the vertebra stops s in the neck that is grinded and involves the entire body in the piece, "she adds. & # 39; Small things like this mean that you will work the muscles more effectively and get better results faster. & # 39; It also helps to protect you from injuries and, says Joanna, should help to improve your posture in daily life. In other words, it is not good to do hundreds of sit-ups and squats if you do them wrong.
While the video training sessions of Joanna, photos & # 39; s and videos from Mail Plus Health are short and unintimidative, she is convinced that it will still require a small effort. The importance of precise technique – & # 39; and really understand how your body moves & # 39; – was sent home by a health condition for Joanna scared in 2005. When she was 12 weeks pregnant with her daughter, her appendix, which required emergency surgery and a long-term recovery, left her in a wheelchair at one point. Later, the surgeon said that it had been difficult to get the appendix out. They had to cut my abs and, as he said, "snuggle around", she says. & # 39; With the fact that I had to heal and was pregnant, I was very aware that I would be more susceptible to injury and back pain. It is from that point that my approach has really been developed, & # 39; she says. While her Mail Plus Health video workouts are short and not intimidating, she is firmly convinced that it will still be a bit of a struggle – she does not promise a quick squeak. "As a sports scientist, I am very clear about what you need to do to optimize the results," she says. & # 39; I would strongly advise doing the workouts four times a week. & # 39; & # 39; In addition to the physical benefits she adds, this is important for building the habit of physical activity. & # 39; This is the biggest challenge people face when they start – it's finding that template to fit exercise into their lives. & # 39; Her best tips for finding time to practice? & # 39; Do it first, & # 39; she says. & # 39; This is what I do before my family gets up, even if it only takes ten minutes. Otherwise, if your day becomes busier and people continue to add to your task list, sports will be this extra pressure and something that you have to adjust. & # 39; Inevitably that can sometimes mean that it does not happen at all. & # 39; And it also helps to tie it in with something you already do, to bring it into your routine. • Choose something you do every day, such as picking up the paper or making your first cup of tea and doing one of the workouts before that activity, "says Joanna. Use the existing habit as a guideline. "Finally, she says, you will not fall into the trap of thinking that you have to wait for the perfect moment to start a new practice program. & # 39; ; People can think: "I wait until it is a bit quieter at work / I have to find out the house first / I will join a gym if I lose a few pounds. "" But there will never be a perfect time. Now is always the best time to start, even if you go through the first video completely, without actually doing the movements, just to get an idea of how it goes. Start. Come to me! & # 39;
