But you know that September feeling - new stationery, shiny shoes, a colour-coordinated schedule - we’re talking that, but for your workouts. Yes, we’re looking at the goal of building the perfect workout schedule for body and mind. One that will help you get stronger or faster whilst being kind to yourself. Because healthy change is never just about evolving the way your body looks - or even performs. From setting your goal to seeing it through and the whole journey in the middle, there’s a real mental and emotional component, too.

So, whether you want to get stronger; build certain muscles, smash out a 10k or shift any excess body fat - in this episode we have plenty of inspiration and advice for you to action today.
