Love it or loathe it, 2017 is upon us and those lofty resolutions we agreed to over a couple of glasses of vino are beginning to rear their ugly head.

And it seems to us, we've all got two options: a) Do nothing or b) Take the right steps towards getting fit. As cliched as it sounds, (and yes mum, you were right) 'a healthier you is a happier you' and we reckon the New Year is the best time to start:

FitRepublik is offering group fitness classes to help you get in shape

Why group personal training is the best way to start

Cheaper (and more fun) than a personal trainer, group training is a great way to meet new people as well as a great way to shape up. Small groups mean you'll still get the best possible coaching and the people in your group will be an extra motivational aid.

What these lessons will concentrate on:

These groups training will do complete body workout and will include cardio, strength, hypertrophy, core strength and interval training.

Pick either a four, eight or twelve week program...

Fitness should be about long term goals. Easy fixes don't come into it. Maybe if you're a beginner try four weeks and see how you like it. If you're into fitness, go harder and set yourself some fitness challenges and goals.
