They’ve ran out of things to watch on Netflix.

And perhaps even confused with what day it is.

On one hand you need to finish off the leftover turkey, work your way through the mounds of cheese you bought too much of, and scoff the toffee pennies that no-one wants.

But on the other hand, you can’t wait for the New Year to begin so you can wipe the slate clean, get back into a routine and start feeling fit and healthy again!

When January does arrive it’s important that you have a plan for your health and fitness, otherwise you’ll end up back at square one very quickly.

It’s best to focus on small daily habits that you can maintain over time, rather than changing your whole life overnight.That’s what we do in our 14-Day New Year Shred Programme.

We set our members some very simple daily tasks that get quick results to start with (which boosts motivation), but at the same time, are very easy to maintain so that you form new healthy habits in the long run.During the 14-day online programme you can expect to eliminate sugar cravings, lose weight, feel less bloated, feel fitter, more energetic and happier, with a new positive mindset.

All that you have to do is perform these four simple daily tasks:

Here’s what some of our previous 14-Day Shred participants had to say:-

"Delighted with my final results from the shred. I lost 9.4lbs in weight, 2.5” off my waist and 2”off my thighs. A brilliant kickstart which I sorely needed.” - Mark B.

“Really enjoyed the shred… some lovely meals… great workouts.. and best of all the support and banter in the group. Lost 7lbs, lost 3.5 inches off waist, and MRs S says I look a bit fitter that’s good enough for me!” - Mark S.

“Just checked my measurements, 6lbs lost, an inch off my waist. Very happy but this is just a start for me, I’m going to keep this going until I have reached my goal.” Helen C.

Graham’s biography reads: “When my football career ended due to injury, I qualified as a personal trainer. I moved to Dubai, where I worked in a huge gym.“Working in Dubai was a priceless experience; I instructed over 1,000 personal training sessions in one year and helped over 50 people achieve their fitness goals. The knowledge I gained in one year in Dubai would have taken at least five in the UK.“When I returned from Dubai, I took on the role of gym supervisor and personal trainer at Seaham Hall Hotel and Serenity Spa.

"It was at Seaham Hall that I set up my first boot camp. While I was there, I won the Leisure Excellence Award at the North East Hotels Association. I left Seaham Hall in 2012 to focus on running my own business. I held the boot camp sessions in local car parks and travelled to personal training clients to train them at home.”
