With the new year celebrations behind us, it is time for resolutions. If ‘getting fit’ is on your agenda, there are plenty of ways to do it in and around Mosman.

Once you have set yourself a goal and are committed to achieving it, you don’t have to work alone. Take a look at some ideas and local providers to support your resolution.

Lose weight in 2020: Exercise

Getting fit means exercising. There are so many great ways to do this in Mosman.

Of course, you can get out and jog around one of the most beautiful suburbs in the world. Stick to pedestrian pathways and enjoy a run around Georges Head or challenge yourself to beat your best time up Awaba Street. There is also the beach at Balmoral to get your heart rate up.

Adding or updating your home gym is great motivation to use it more. Upgrade to the latest home gym equipment or take a look at exercise.com’s ‘Top 5 Most Extravagant Home Gyms’ for inspiration.

Of course, to get the most out of your home gym, it is a good idea to recruit on a personal trainer.

Jonno Hook grew up in Mosman and will train you in your home gym or at the outdoor location of your choice.
Soul Personal Training has a stunning facility in Mosman and will tailor training to you and your needs.
Urban Fitness Solutions specialise in group sessions and working with over 45s and loves to train people outdoors.

Lose weight in 2020: Diet

When it comes to weight loss, diet is now regarded as far more important than exercise. Many personal trainers will help you with a dietary plan and this is a great start.

Of course, cooking and preparing complex meals that are tasty but low in calories can be a struggle. Taking on a personal chef can ensure you enjoy delicious and nutritious meals to keep you in better shape. Let your chef know your regime or have them liaise with your personal trainer and you can avoid unpleasant weight-loss food.

Spending time with a nutritionist or dietician can also help. This expert will be able to tailor meals especially for your unique dietary needs. Your diet should be completely different if your focus is on strength and muscle building over weight loss, and a dietician or nutritionist will know just what you will need. Both Hanna Watson, a clinical nutritionist who can help you with your dietary needs and Jane Barnes, an experienced and accredited dietician are listed as being located in Mosman.

Lose weight in 2020: Find the time

The final and often forgotten part of the get fit equation is time.

Unless you give your goals the attention they need, there is no way you can stick to a regime or make the most out of your home gym. A personal chef and personal trainer are a great start to managing your time but there are a few more steps to make the very most of the hours you have.

First of all, figure out all the little tasks that can be outsourced to free up your day. Have your clothes laundered and ironed professionally, hire a dog walker (unless it’s part of your regime), get a cleaner and eliminate any task that you can have someone else do.

Once you are free of tedious chores and errands, add time to focus on fitness into your diary. Figure out what time of day works best and free up that time, be it morning, midday or evening.

Consider getting the kids in on your regime, especially tweens and teens. This gives you time spent together as well as healthier habits.

Lose weight 2020: Freeze it

If you have lost all but the final kilos and they won’t budge, consider CoolSculpting. This non-invasive new procedure helps freeze the fat away.

Targeting problem areas, CoolSculpting freezes and destroys layers of fat under the skin. While it isn’t designed to remove excess weight, it can be the final touch you deserve to finish off your hard work. Contact Clean Clear and Correct in Mosman to learn more.
