With the rise in popularity of fitness, now is the perfect time to set your fitness goals

Research has shown that those with plans for their New Year resolutions succeed far better that those without. It’s also shown that those with smaller milestones are far more likely to succeed with their goals. Whether you’re aiming to be fitter, stronger, or to lose weight, choose one resolution and make that your primary focus.


Katie Scott, editor of Personal Trainer Magazine, says that interest in fitness has been steadily rising for the past few years, and it’s going to be bigger than ever for 2016 – so expect new workouts, diets and other fitness trends to pop up in the coming months.

Experts say that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit and six months for it to become part of your personality; so if your looking to lose weight, or just to improve your overall fitness, now is the time to get started and the expert team at David Lloyd will help you achieve your goals, what ever they may be.


David Lloyd Ipswich has a fully equipped gym with a wide selection of cardio and weight machines plus an area for free weights. If you’re more of a swimmer, the 25m pool will suit you down to the ground, with ample room to work on all of your favourite strokes; on the other hand, if you fancy a little racket sport, grab a friend for a game of squash, tennis or badminton. David Lloyd also offers a comprehensive selection of exciting fitness classes for those who need a little extra motivation and the moral support of a group workout, as well as spa facilities to help you wind down after an intense session.

Every new member receives a complimentary hour with a personal trainer to set up a gym programme, familiarise yourself with the environment and ensure that you understand where to begin with your journey – they’ll be able to answer all your fitness queries and offer helpful advice on tailoring your workout to meet realistic goals. And after a recent one million pound refurbishment, there has been no better time to start putting your plan into action.
