7 Tips for Staying Fit This Christmas

Whether your goal is performance or aesthetics, sleep is crucial. While we sleep the body repairs itself. Not getting enough sleep can interrupt this process, leading to increased soreness, early onset of fatigue and decreased effectiveness of your training sessions. Aim for 7-9 hours per night.

Almost every biological process that occurs in the body requires water and for this reason, these processes may be hindered if you are dehydrated. Females should aim for 2.5 litres and males for 3 litres per day, plus one extra litre per hour of exercise.
