WELCOME 2020!

Posted

HELLO 2020!

GOOD LUCK WITH ALL YOUR SMALL AND BIG CHANGES THIS YEAR - WHETHER IT'S BEING MORE ACTIVE AND TAKING MORE CARE OF YOUR BODY OR BEING MORE ETHICAL AND TAKING MORE CARE OF OUR PLANET 

So you’ve made it through the first week back at work but those plans for fitness have maybe been a bit harder to get to grips with! New Year hangovers and fitness resolutions are a tricky combo! To help you on your way we are running a 50% discount use coded 2020 at the checkout. Go to https://blackfishswimwear.com

If you're struggling to find the right fitness training routine for you then take a look at these from Shape they are a good place to start, remember RPE ( rate of perceived exertion ) is how hard the workout feels to you on a scale of 1 to 10.  

And Lastly 

It's that time of year when diets are rampant in magazines and on social media.

We don't talk diets at Blackfish we know you all get the basic idea that if you eat less, move around more, you will lose weight and get fitter!

But we also think that doesn't work because you end up focussing on parts of you that you don’t like as opposed to parts of you that you think are excellent! In light of this our 2020 recommendation is everyday think of three positive aspects about yourself and write them down.

It can be anything... here’s some ideas to get you started...

Your resilience and patience at dealing with a raging hormonal teenager!

OR

Your tech wizardry

OR

Your sense of humour at the rising tide of sh*t that is coming your way!

OR

Your ability to make a school fancy dress outfit in under 30 minutes

OR

well...you get the idea!

Happy 2020 and Happy Swimming
