Open Water Training.

Alot of people enjoy training outside in lakes and rivers. And I totally agree, I love it. 

However, I do see people losing fitness throughout the Summer as they just swim lap after lap with no focus to their training. 

Here are my 5 top tips to help you to get the most from your Open Water Training. 

1.  Have a plan and stick to it.  So, if you have written an interval type open water session then stick to that. Don't be swayed by friends at the lake.

2.  Make sure you warm up and cool down for each session. 

3. Work on technique and drills such as sighting, race starts, swimming round the buoy etc.  

4. Still do a swim session in the pool once a week.  I rtend to do my interval or pure speed session in the pool still and my skills, endurance and pace changes in the open water.  

5. Be consistent with your training.

Feedback From a Member Today.

I was a late starter to exercise (in my early 40s) and it's taken me a couple of years to even be comfortable calling myself a runner.  

I've been going to Janette's classes (HIIT, barre, abs, pilates) for a couple of years.  She is quite the most extraordinary, dedicated exercise instructor I know - living and breathing her passion for exercise and a great role model for dedication and commitment.   Janette's classes are always really well thought out, motivating and work you hard  to get results.  She motivates and pushes you to achieve far more than you think is possible

After going to Janette's classes for a couple of years I wondered how much more I could achieve with coaching - inspired and enthused by other's achievements there was more I wanted to tackle.   

Janette was the obvious choice as a coach and I signed up for 1:1 online coaching with her.   As my first (and only) coach I wasn't sure what to expect and felt slightly out of my depth before I signed up - was I committing to something I couldn't keep my side of the bargain for ?   That feeling soon went as with Janette you have someone who is on your side, who wants you to achieve your goals and will do everything she can to support you to do just that and more.  In return she will expect commitment, honesty and lots of hard work.

Communication is always good and Janette is always available for a chat or to answer a question, or help solve a problem.  Janette is very, very knowledgeable and  as GB athlete herself is a great role model and advertisement for her business.

Training is varied and plans are delivered through a great online system with the opportunity for regular feedback and review.  The value and benefit of having someone to plan out your training for you and be answerable to cannot be underestimated and I'm sure it is the reason why her coached athletes go on to exceed  their personal goals.  There is a great supportive atmosphere amongst Janette's coached athletes and it is really inspiring to see what others have achieved.  

I highly recommend both Janette's classes and her online coaching.

How to stay motivated to achieve your goals in 2017

JC top tips to achieving your goals in 2017

Here are my 8 top tips to achieving your health and fitness goals in 2017.

1. Plan ahead. Plan your meals, your work and training Schedules. Write them down. Be accountable.

2. Treat classes and pt sessions as meetings that you just can’t/won’t cancel.

3. Have a couple of short term and long term goals. For instance to run a 5 km by Easter. Long term to improve on this time achieved. Also think how you will achieve these goals.

4. Commit to a class or a course of fitness and know its a regular part of your routine.

5. Join a class with a friend and buddy up. You are less likely to cancel if you are meeting your friend there.

6. If need be seek advice and support from a PT or Coach. Have a home programme written for you to follow and arrange to report in weekly. It will keep you on track.

7. Keep a training diary.

8. There are so many training options available. Find the one that works for you. Here at JCFitness we offer, classes, PT, Online coaching for Running and Triathlon, Online Short 5 day small group focussed training, Retreats, Fitness Days, Workshops and events.  There issomething for everyone.
