We all know how important fitness is to our health. Staying on top of our fitness can have many benefits, on our physical health and also our mental health. When we decide to maintain a fitness schedule, routine, or programme, it allows us to keep in touch with our determination and also aligns our lives outside of our fitness activities in a more streamlined way.

And, once you fall into a bad thought cycle about your body, it can be impossible to get out of. So, what can you do?
