    Always have good tunes!!

  3. Harriet Anderson February 15, 2017 at 9:11 pm #

    Sometimes just putting on your activewear can be the hardest part, lay out your workout gear for the next day so you have no excuses to get it in and go!

    My favourite mantra “exercise in the morning before your body knows whats happening!” = love it xx

  5. Nicola Truuts February 15, 2017 at 9:20 pm #

  11. Angela February 15, 2017 at 9:32 pm #

    Walking, it’s free, you can do it anywhere

  12. Zoe February 15, 2017 at 9:33 pm #

  15. Tracey Goble February 15, 2017 at 9:37 pm #

    My fav fitness tip is, Exercising doesn’t have to cost a dime. Walking/running and toning exercises are free!

  16. Jennifer February 15, 2017 at 9:38 pm #

    My fitness tip is to set a goal and work towards it- whether it’s running 5km or doing 30mins of daily exercise whatever floats your boat and keeps you going!

  17. Melissa Bradley February 15, 2017 at 9:39 pm #

    Wow that’s puts a whole new look in getting fit loving the pink. So with a busy house hold of 2 boys and 1 husband we both work full time and sadly not only no time for the gym as we are always doing after school activities with the boys. We would love to get out of our month squats and ab workout and really do some serious cardio.
    My husband is recovering from multiple torn knee tendons and this would best a great start to te building his strength
    Pink or Salmon as the boys call it will certainly add a super look to our newly cleaned out garage – see we already made the space lol

  18. Lana February 15, 2017 at 9:46 pm #

    My favourite fitness tip is go for a run in the morning as your fresh and ready to go , then aim for your workout in the arvo so even if something comes up you have still completed something for the day !

  19. Emma Kelly February 15, 2017 at 9:46 pm #

    Wow that treadmill is so pretty ????
    My fitness tip would be to use the stairs where possible instead of lifts and to always keep healthy snacks at work so you dont delve into sugary treats.

  20. Sophie Woodger February 15, 2017 at 9:46 pm #

    Don’t put too much pressure on yourself! You can’t life the biggest weights on day 1 or run a marathon after a week! Be proud of yourself for getting up and doing it but be kind to your body – persistence is key!

  21. Roxana February 15, 2017 at 9:48 pm #

    Fitness with friends is the best fitness there is! Makes it so much easier and way more fun.

  22. Nerissa van stipriaan February 15, 2017 at 9:51 pm #

    This would be fantastic recovery for my ankle injury and a way to ditch the excuses since I could use it late at night, early in the morning and any other random time of day. And it’s a cool colour?????

  23. Kate February 15, 2017 at 9:55 pm #

    My fitness tip is a little bit often is better than nothing! As a busy mumma I’ll try do squats while cooking dinner or lunge my way to the kitchen…it all counts 🙂

  24. Bekz Tschurtschenthaler February 15, 2017 at 9:59 pm #

    My tip is to always listen to music whilst doing fitness.
    It takes the mind elsewhere and keeps you focussed. It also helps with mindfulness!… bonus!

  25. Alannah Bell February 15, 2017 at 10:00 pm #

    I find that having someone who makes you accountable whether it be a PT or just a friend makes it easier!

  26. Janine Aarsrn February 15, 2017 at 10:01 pm #

    Exercise with a friend…… Make it enjoyable together and keep each other accountable.

  27. Terri February 15, 2017 at 10:03 pm #

    Nice walk in the bush with friends is my go to fitness.

  28. Kayla February 15, 2017 at 10:05 pm #

    If your feeling a bit slow, sluggish or tires, go for a walk or move your body. You have to move to make Energy????

  29. Anonymous February 15, 2017 at 10:10 pm #

    My fitness tip would be to keep going! If you don’t do anything you won’t get anywhere. Also not everyday is gonna be the same, sometimes you will have bad days but that’s okay because you just try again tomorrow.

  30. Claire February 15, 2017 at 10:17 pm #

    One hour is only 4% of your day, when you think about it like that it seems much more reasonable and easier to fit in an hour of exercise every day!

  31. Ceara February 15, 2017 at 10:21 pm #

    My favorite fitness tip is to find a work out buddy who will motivate you and make it far more interesting 🙂

  32. Kelsie February 15, 2017 at 10:25 pm #

    My favourite fitness tip is to have a decent set of earphones and an incredible Playlist lined up before you start. No changing songs, skipping about etc plus you can time your intervals to the songs.

  33. Megan February 15, 2017 at 10:30 pm #

    listen to your body. No when to push and when to just have a rest!

  34. Maren February 15, 2017 at 10:32 pm #

    Change it up! Go on a bush walk, do a yoga class, smash out some cardio at the gym or sign up (without thinking too much into it) to an intense class with a friend! Keeps exercise exciting 🙂

  35. Danielle Collings February 15, 2017 at 10:38 pm #

    My fav fitness tip is to enjoy working out! Exercise with good company and just have a good old laugh even if you’re both totally beginners and have no clue what you’re doing! 🙂

  36. jamie moar February 15, 2017 at 10:41 pm #

    My fitness tip is keep hydrated and to find something you enjoy. If you dont enjoy it you wont do it.

  37. Lisa February 15, 2017 at 10:48 pm #

    This would be awesome, I do most of my workouts at home as no one to watch my girl so struggle on the cardio, this would work a treat. Thanks for the opportunity to win ????

  38. Sara Russell February 15, 2017 at 10:57 pm #

    Find what motivates you and let it guide you.

  39. Jessica Logan February 15, 2017 at 10:58 pm #

    Always have a buddy so you are both accountable to each other!

  40. Kama February 15, 2017 at 11:05 pm #

    Make a play list of you most favourite songs. Make it short and sweet to start with 5-6 songs. Get your body used to moving. Work your way up by adding another song in every few days. Before you know it you will be jamming along for a good hour or so to your favourite tunes.

  41. Rachael February 15, 2017 at 11:38 pm #

    Train with a buddy to keep each other motivated! I always need to be held accountable! It’s also way more fun

  42. Tash Earley February 15, 2017 at 11:47 pm #

    It takes time and effort to see results.
    Determination is your friend.
    Slip ups happen just keep going.

  43. Deborah February 16, 2017 at 12:04 am #

    Get more active as a family, walks, bike rides etc as it benefits everyone and it can be hard to fit in dedicated ‘exercise’ time.

  44. Ishtar February 16, 2017 at 12:12 am #

    That it is not a diet but a life style change

  45. Rhiannon jones February 16, 2017 at 12:56 am #

    My fitness tip is to try change it up to keep focused and remember why I started getting fit 🙂

  46. Courtney February 16, 2017 at 6:23 am #

    Would love a treadmill at home to smash out a bit more exercise without going to the gym.
    My fave fitness tip is to use a variety of different activities to keep things fresh and exciting 🙂

  47. Rebecca February 16, 2017 at 7:00 am #

    This would be awesome love the pink….. my tip would be to listen to music it passes the time so it doesn’t seem like a chore more like a dance party.

  48. Rosemary Pourau February 16, 2017 at 7:08 am #

    Just do a little each day and you will get there in the end.

  49. Marcial February 16, 2017 at 7:11 am #

    I love walking robbed my fitness or even jogging with my dog having a fur buddy is the best and it makes me feel safer

  50. Alyssa McGregor February 16, 2017 at 7:17 am #

    Exercising with the kids during the school holidays when it is harder to get to the gym is so much fun! We love going for a bike ride along the cycle way in Dunedin, walking some of the many beautiful walking tracks we have, shooting hoops in the backyard or even pulling out a Pilates DVD. So much fun and so great for the kids to keep active during the holidays too when they are not doing their usual daily P.E!

  51. Cristy February 16, 2017 at 7:27 am #

    Get up and do it early! Then you don’t have to think about getting it done later ???

  52. Patricia Swanepoel February 16, 2017 at 7:28 am #

    I would love this! It would make working out much easier on the days I can’t get to the gym!

  53. Catherine February 16, 2017 at 7:29 am #

    Exercise early in the morning while the kids are asleep then you’ve done it for the day and also fasted. Helps boost the metabolism and lose weight ????

  54. Ellen February 16, 2017 at 7:32 am #

    My tip would be low intensity fasted cardio in the morning, a lite walk, on the road with friends or in the gym and catch up on last nights TV series. Followed with a warm lemon water when you get home, sets you up for a good day!

  55. Tabitha Newton February 16, 2017 at 7:35 am #

    My fitness tip is little and often. It doesn’t always have to be a major work out to count. Just take the stairs. Walk to the next bus top before you hop on. Stand up and walk around your office. Stretch a little before you sit back down. Changing your mindset about movement is vital. Soon you’ll want to do the major stuff!

  56. Kate Baker February 16, 2017 at 7:46 am #

    Ii try to make it as simple as possible. If I feel like doing weights I use the free gym at work, if I want to get outside I go for walk, if I can’t face the world I do yoga in my lounge. That was there’s no excuses

  57. Shannon February 16, 2017 at 8:04 am #

    Set yourself achieveable goals and reward yourself when you achieve those goals. Dont be hard on yourself if you miss a session, just get back on track the next day

  58. Kirsty Hartley February 16, 2017 at 8:11 am #

    My fitness tip is to set up your workout space with equipment and get your workout clothes out the night before. That way, first thing in the morning you can leap out of bed and get straight into your workout. 🙂

  59. Megan February 16, 2017 at 8:17 am #

    I love a brisk walk in the morning fresh air I try to go on of road tracks as it feels good being in nature as apposed to walking the streets.

  60. Louise fisher February 16, 2017 at 8:33 am #

    My fitness tip is to organise a fitness buddy that you can exercise with so that you have someone that can hold you accountable, motivate you and make doing exercise fun and enjoyable ????????????

  61. Tania February 16, 2017 at 8:36 am #

    Fitness tip: Don’t compare yourself to another’s persons journey. It can be really defeating not seeing change but DO NOT give up. Progress takes time and determination

  62. Vicki Thomas February 16, 2017 at 8:38 am #

    Change things up , keep your workout interesting????

  63. Lee Rangi February 16, 2017 at 8:53 am #

    My fitness tip is to put some time aside before and after a workout to stretch, warm up and cool down. I snapped my Achilles tendon, it took 3 years of therapy, I believe I probably could have prevented the injury if I had given myself 15 minutes to stretch.

  64. Emma Jonrs February 16, 2017 at 8:55 am #

    I have 8 week old twins so have yet to manage a regular exercise routine outside of the house! So my tip for mums is to use what you have, in my case it’s going up and down the stairs multiple times a day, carrying two crying babies around for weight training (both over 5kg) & walking back and forwards to the microwave re-heating the same coffee every hour!

  65. Suzannah Newton February 16, 2017 at 8:58 am #

    Love mixing up my workouts. A combination of yoga, some team sports, running and swimming by myself and doing weights and interval training with my boyfriend. If I’m doing different hinds all the time I stay motivated cos I don’t get bored. Doing it with other people sometimes is great too so I can be competitive with myself and with others.

  66. Katherine Hibbard February 16, 2017 at 9:14 am #

    Find something you really enjoy doing. It shouldn’t feel like a chore and you won’t find yourself watching the clock and counting down the minutes until you can finish exercising.

  67. Leanne February 16, 2017 at 9:51 am #

    Do a little bit everyday

  68. Charlotte February 16, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    Meet a friend when you go for a walk or a run to keep each other motivated.

  69. Leah February 16, 2017 at 10:09 am #

    Omg I would love to win a treadmill, it would be the perfect aid for getting back in to running after having my first baby.

    My faveourite fitness tip (great for getting yourself moving when you have zero motivation!) is to tell yourself you only have to do whatever exercise it is for 10minutes. If after 10minutes you really aren’t feeling it, you have permission to stop and go home. Guaranteed that after those 10minutes you will be feeling so good and in to it that you will continue for your entire workout!

  70. Lynda Hunter February 16, 2017 at 10:20 am #

    A Good walk first in the morning

  71. Kelsey February 16, 2017 at 10:23 am #

    Definitely to keep a balance of activity you enjoy but incorporating new or mixed routines in 🙂 Be as active as you can in as many ways possible.

  72. Ginette February 16, 2017 at 10:43 am #

    For a starter, Find what you enjoy and drink plenty of water. Start small and build up 🙂

  73. Emma February 16, 2017 at 10:46 am #

    Do what is fun and keep it fun. Enter in events push yourself towards these goals and keep setting new ones 🙂

  74. felicity smith February 16, 2017 at 10:56 am #

    Find something you like – whatever it is is better than something you are told to do – fitness should be fun

  75. Karen Mabey February 16, 2017 at 11:29 am #

    Make sure you stay hydrated while exercising & do something you enjoy doing so you keep it up. 🙂

  76. Nicole February 16, 2017 at 11:33 am #

    My fitness tip is let yourself know what type of exercise you love to do, keep up with the basic, and focus on what you want to gain or lose.

  77. Anna Geddes February 16, 2017 at 12:05 pm #

    My favourite tip is to have a positive attitude. There’s nothing better than looking forward to workout!

  78. Simone February 16, 2017 at 12:12 pm #

    Remember to fue and refuel/hydrate your body with nourishing foods an liquid to help you train harder and recover faster!

  79. Richie February 16, 2017 at 12:24 pm #

    Establish a routine and stick to it! After a few weeks you’ll feel weird not working out.

  80. Sheryl February 16, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

    My Fitness Tip is, you don’t need to do an hour of exercise a day, just 12-30min a day can get your heart rate up and moving. Just doing a 12min HIIT Bootcamp gets your blood pumping and makes you a hot sweaty mess. Using and working different parts of your body is all it takes to make and see changes.

  81. Rachel February 16, 2017 at 1:38 pm #

    Early morning sessions are the best no too hot! And feels good to get it done for the day! Don’t forget your water bottle ?

  82. Deena Hobbs February 16, 2017 at 1:56 pm #

    OMG This is BEAUTIFUL! My Fitness Tip is if you are struggling for time and motivation to leave the house, go onto you-tube and find some free workouts online that get your heart rate pumping – such as a 15 minute fat burner workout or even yoga!

  83. debbie s February 16, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

    stay hydrated with lemon infused water to keep your energy up place a sticky on the fridge reminding you what your fitness goals are and smash them daily giving yourself a reward each week to keep you motivated it might be a coffee with friends at your favourite coffee shop luxury and a job well done and be honest with yourself

  84. Helen February 16, 2017 at 2:27 pm #

    Exercise with a friend – it combines activities, keeps things fun and you can hold each other to account

  85. Kasey February 16, 2017 at 2:51 pm #

    Wow! My tip would be to eat something before training even if it’s just half a banana. Also a fasting walk in the morning before you eat is a great idea if you are just doing cardio. Another thing is to do exercise you love , if you hate what you are doing you will loose motivation! Have fun and don’t let it control your life 🙂

  86. Michelle Hudgell February 16, 2017 at 3:08 pm #

    Do something you enjoy then you will stick at it! It’s no fun doing something that makes you miserable!

  87. Kim February 16, 2017 at 3:20 pm #

    I would love to win this! My fitness tip is just to get up and get moving – even if its just a walk around the block to admire other peoples gardens and to smell the flowers. Every little bit makes a difference. 🙂

  88. Miah phrlps February 16, 2017 at 3:58 pm #

    Make sure you change it up, you won’t keep getting results if u keep doing the same stuff week in week out, speed it up, new weights etc

  89. Laura February 16, 2017 at 4:29 pm #

    Eating a banana before a workout is great for energy! I would love to win this to get back shape after baby no.2 due very soon 🙂

  90. Christine Baxter February 16, 2017 at 4:35 pm #

    My fitness tip is get exercise over and done with early! start the day as you intend to finish

  91. keely February 16, 2017 at 5:18 pm #

    Do a little bit even if you don’t feel like it.. get into a habit and it will become easier.

  92. Sarah February 16, 2017 at 6:02 pm #

    Listen to music super loud while exercising!!

  93. Sarah February 16, 2017 at 6:04 pm #

    Crank the music super loud!5M7E

  94. Zubia February 16, 2017 at 6:33 pm #

    Number one fitness tip would be to have a motivating work out buddy with you!!! Who shares the same passion with you!! and both have goals to look and feel smokin hot ;P

  95. Tonia Clifton February 16, 2017 at 6:34 pm #

    Start off with doing 3-mins of exercisethen build the mins up each time. I would love to win as I suffer agoraphobia anxiety this would come in handy. I need to loose a lot of weight and being homebound for one year

  96. Kimberly February 16, 2017 at 6:48 pm #

    Would be amazing!! And the pink!! I’ve lost 40kg, 30kg to go!

  97. Charmaine February 16, 2017 at 8:19 pm #

    Set small goals and work towards them. Little steps go a long way. Also, find an exercise you enjoy so it doesn’t feel like sub a chore and if you can manage it, exercise early in the morning then you don’t have all say to talk yourself out of it!

  98. Rebekah Donald February 16, 2017 at 9:04 pm #

    Have a fitness buddy to keep you both accountable, it’s not so easy to just make up any old excuse not to go for that walk if you are letting someone else down as well as yourself ????????

  99. Rachael McArthur-Andrew February 16, 2017 at 9:05 pm #

    stay hydrated, start of with a small amount then build it up over time

  100. Johanna February 16, 2017 at 9:55 pm #

    Make goals realistic but don’t forget to push your just that bit more even if its just 1 minute extra

  101. Helen Hill February 16, 2017 at 10:48 pm #

    Exercise with a family member or friend as you keep one another motivated and on track and your exercise goes a lot quicker. Keep disciplined with your exercise as you reap the benefits of feeling good. ????

  102. Rosey Nathan February 17, 2017 at 1:01 am #

    Make sure that you are prepared. When I am really in the zone my weeks are planned and I know what routine and what meals are happening and when. Also listen to your body, it’s not just about hammering yourself, allow yourself some rest and kindness

  103. Sonja Wezenbeek February 17, 2017 at 4:11 am #

    I find getting up early to exercise. Is the best. Gets me energised and going for the day.

  104. Emily February 17, 2017 at 1:43 pm #

    Don’t compare yourself to others, so easy to become discouraged that way. Be YOUR best!

  105. Ashleigh February 17, 2017 at 4:15 pm #

    If you’re not a fan of exercise do it first thing in the morning so you can get it over and done with.

  106. Emma February 17, 2017 at 4:41 pm #

    Early morning exercise is best ????????

  107. Rebecca February 17, 2017 at 11:44 pm #

    Don’t leave room for excuses (eg get early morning run gear ready the night before) and make it fun!

  108. Kelly February 18, 2017 at 8:37 am #

    Preparation is key, it’s easy to make excuses especially after a long day at work but getting out and sweating out some of that stress is the best cure! I try to have dinners and lunches planned to save me time and stress in the evening. Also if someone else knows your plans for exercise if your one to put it off, it makes you more accountable to actually get out there and do it

  109. Sus Chesmar February 18, 2017 at 9:02 pm #

    Set yourself fitness goals which are SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, & time-based. The goal could be something as simple as doing 30 mins of exercise a day every day for a month. At the end of the month reflect on how the exercise made you feel, & what other aspects of your life it positively affected. Then make another goal! It’s great to have something to work towards.

  110. Kaitlyn February 19, 2017 at 2:56 pm #

    Always listen to your body. You don’t want to overdo it, your body will tell you when you’ve done too much. And working out to music makes it so much more enjoyable

  111. Nataha Swainson February 19, 2017 at 7:57 pm #

    The hardest part is just deciding to do it. Be organised so I have no excuses not too. I break it down, it only takes a minute to get ready, only takes twenty minutes to walks to halfway etc. Also visualise how good you feel after doing the exercise.

  112. Vanessa February 20, 2017 at 12:21 am #

    Having a workout buddy helps with the motivation and finding something you love will keep you consistent 🙂

  113. Bex Dixon February 20, 2017 at 10:59 am #

    Push yourself a little more each day. Constant improvements will help keep you on track

  114. Leeann Woodrow February 20, 2017 at 11:04 am #

    Just get outside for a 30min walk everyday, even if you are tired, it really does make you feel better, not to mention sleep better!

  115. Caitlin February 20, 2017 at 11:28 am #

    Favourite fitness tip is to mix it up a bit with your workouts and do a few different things each week! Explore your own backyard too 🙂

  116. Amy Rogers February 20, 2017 at 11:33 am #

    Get all your gear ready the night before so there is no mucking around in the morning!!! And have something to work towards! A holiday, some new clothes, dinner out at a fancy restaurant! Whatever works for you!

  117. Amanda F February 20, 2017 at 12:04 pm #

    I’m probably the only female who isn’t a fan of the pink ???? but a treadmill could be handy!

  118. Sandra twidle February 20, 2017 at 12:39 pm #

    I would love to win this. Just need to make some room.

    Don’t focus exercise soley on loosing weight…. make about being fit and healthy

  120. Laura February 20, 2017 at 4:48 pm #

    Stay hydrated and make sure you have a small protein snack for after your workout to avoid getting HANGRY!!

  121. Becs February 20, 2017 at 6:41 pm #

    Making exercise a routine thing, and getting out and doing it first thing in the morning is the best thing…it gives me so much energy for the rest of the day.

  122. Anna February 20, 2017 at 6:43 pm #

    Just get out and get moving. Every little bit helps ????

  123. Liz February 20, 2017 at 6:58 pm #

    Best fitness tip?? No excuses, just do it!

  124. Vanda smith February 20, 2017 at 8:00 pm #

    Run early morning on an empty stomach with a hydration pack and good shoes

  125. Crissy February 20, 2017 at 9:09 pm #

    A 40 minute walk on an empty tummy best done when waking up and lots of water

  126. Nat February 20, 2017 at 9:21 pm #

    Make a plan, be accountable. Find someone to workout with so if you don’t turn up you’re letting them down.
    Just do it!

  127. Shayna February 20, 2017 at 9:35 pm #

    Keep a positive mindset!!!!

  128. Raelene February 20, 2017 at 10:05 pm #

    Always have your favourite music playlist at the ready, really helps with the motivation.

  129. Lily King February 20, 2017 at 10:17 pm #

    This would be so awesome! My best tip is to prioritise yourself and don’t feel guilty about making time for fitness. Also to do whatever you love, dancing, weights, swimming whatever. The program that will give you the best results is the one you’ll stick to, and you’ll stick to the one you enjoy. I’m a busy mum of three and this works for me!
    I’d love to win a treadmill for when I can’t make it to the gym!

  130. Dara February 21, 2017 at 1:11 am #

    I have a few tips on staying fit & healthy but number one would be know your limits!
    This can be so hopefully with increasing cardio fitness or weights . After many attempts at losing weight it was finally managed to lose it and keep it away !!
    I was finding in all previous attempts I was going too hard too fast and it wasn’t possible to maintain . Experiment with what exercises you like, what your good at, and from there strive . Don’t go to to a gym and start squatting the heaviest weight you see and feel unmotivated that you can do only two. Don’t hit the pavement for a run expecting to go for 20 mins straight when after 1km your lungs are exploding and your feet want to fall off . Set goals, work hard for them, but don’t expect the world from yourself all in one go !
    I started jogging doing 2km around the block and recently completed a half marathon ! Worked my fitness up over the course of 16 months ! Amazing feeling ???? Would love the treadmill to help me train for my full marathon at the end of this year! Literally never wanted to win anything more ???????????

  131. Janet February 21, 2017 at 5:11 am #

    I’m a firm believer to aim for the stars. It all fits together if the minds in the game.

  132. Tammy Vincent February 21, 2017 at 7:06 am #

    I always used to think treadmills were a waste of time because running just needs to be done outside, but with the terrible summer we have had down south lately, I would absolutely love to have a treadmill to use!

  133. Ellie February 21, 2017 at 10:16 am #

    Make sure that working out is enjoyable! I love to try new things and challenge my mind and body with different types of workout, and you can also make new friends – improving your health in more ways than one!

  134. Jessica February 21, 2017 at 7:35 pm #

    Find a fitness plan that is right for you and stick to it!

  135. Becky Hobson February 21, 2017 at 8:56 pm #

    Don’t compare yourself to others. Start with what you are comfortable with and work on increasing intensity from that. Be realistic about your goals and try not to focus on the number but more on how you feel.

  136. Rachael Morris February 22, 2017 at 4:58 pm #

    Walk twice a day morning and afternoon.

  137. Sheri Gould February 22, 2017 at 8:36 pm #

    Ease into it don’t go to hard to soon or you probably be to sore to come back for more in my experience. Slow and steady at first wins the race ????

  138. brenda February 22, 2017 at 9:15 pm #

    This would be so great to have at home as I had to give up my gym membership. I will be a great addition to my stationary bike

  139. Leah C February 23, 2017 at 1:16 pm #

    It’s all about creating a habit. Once that’s done, it’s easy. Well easier. So just get going, know the first few days/weeks will be hard then after that you’re well on the road to a great exercise habit where you’ll feel strange when you don’t do it.

  140. Iris February 24, 2017 at 9:44 pm #

    I would like to win this treadmill and have it home as I am on isagenix products to gain some muscles and one treadmill will help me start with some workout.

  141. Juanita February 25, 2017 at 12:46 pm #

    When you don’t feel like exercise , try anyway for a short tI’m like a walk. I usually keep going because I feel like I want more as soon as I start

  142. Amy Blackmore February 28, 2017 at 8:36 pm #

    Always show up… go to your class or get outside for your run. Even when you don’t feel like it. Especially when you don’t feel like it! Half a work out is always better than none, and you will feel awesome for it+

  143. Dessa February 28, 2017 at 10:17 pm #

    my fitness tip would be to find something that motivates you to push yourself whether it is a training buddy or upbeat music. Something to make you put in 110% I always plug in headphones when I work out and I enjoy every minute of it ??

  144. Jess February 28, 2017 at 10:18 pm #

    Buddy up when getting started with working out. Helps you to be accountable, plus adds some friendly competition!

  145. Juna February 28, 2017 at 10:23 pm #

    Don’t follow what others are doing, you are your own person and have different needs to everyone else. find what works for you and be the best at it! 🙂

  146. Sara Greene February 28, 2017 at 10:26 pm #

    Setting an exercise date with friends helps u achieve ur goals

  147. Mairaid Elliott February 28, 2017 at 10:34 pm #

    My tip would definitely be prepare, prepare, prepare! ???? Being prepared for those times when you want something quick and easy to eat or snack on, being prepared for those early morning excercises … If you don’t prepare you prepare to fail ????

  148. Tam Grant February 28, 2017 at 10:37 pm #

    Don’t overdo it! – I was always doing this until I started yoga and now I let my body tell me when to slow down.

  149. Helen Julian February 28, 2017 at 10:44 pm #

    Just do it! Even if it’s hard just do your best! Would love a treadmill! I can see the whole family wanting to use it ????

  150. Toni February 28, 2017 at 11:30 pm #

    Go and do something either first thing in the morning or straight after work, don’t hit the couch first!

  151. Siobhan February 28, 2017 at 11:38 pm #

    Find a friend to work out with. It’s easier to keep motivated. ????

  152. Toalima March 1, 2017 at 4:57 am #

    Find a form of exercise you enjoy doing, that way it doesn’t seem as much of an effort. Having a workout buddy also helps keep you motivated.

  153. Izzy March 1, 2017 at 5:06 am #

    I have a hormonal condition that unfortunately leads to insulin resistance so I am carrying some excess fat around my stomach area (the worst
    location to store fat) and this treadmill would be just the right piece of equipment to help me out with getting back into shape and boosting my self esteem.
    I want to transform physically and mentally in a positive way and become a healthier me.

    My fitness tips are:

    Do strength training to build muscle because the more muscle you have the more calories you burn whilst resting.
    Do interval training to maximize results in less time 20 minutes of high intensity interval training can burn more calories as a 60 minute cardio workout at constant intensity.
    Focus on compound exercises which involve working more than one muscle group at a time such as Squats and Planks therefore you burn more calories in one go.
    Always warm up and cool down before exercise to avoid muscle stiffness/cramps.
    Eat complex carbs and protein before exercise and eat simple carbs and protein after exercise.
    Get a fitness watch so you remain motivated, track your progress, and reach your goals.
    Make exercise fun for example you can burn 210 calories in 30 minutes of hula hooping or 126 calories in 30 minutes by jumping on the trampoline.

  154. Kelly March 1, 2017 at 7:13 am #

    Go to the gym early in the day, you generally eat healthy during the day and you don’t find yourself making excuses as to why you can’t workout at the end of the day when you’re tired, busy etc ????

  155. Amy March 1, 2017 at 7:20 am #

    Find something fun & do it regularly!

  156. Brenda March 1, 2017 at 7:25 am #

    Get up and do a walk first thing in the moment! It will soon become a habit and you feel so much more ready for the day

  157. Kate March 1, 2017 at 8:03 am #

    Buy yourself some fab workout clothes that make you feel good. If you want to wear them, you’re more likely to get out there and use them!

  158. Meg March 1, 2017 at 8:04 am #

    If you’re struggling to find the time to exercise, do it early in the day – then it’s done and out of the way. I find that if I leave my walk or workout til the end of the day, I’m more likely to make excuses and not do it. There would be no excuses with this treadmill at my house though, would love this to help me get fit

  159. Aaron March 1, 2017 at 8:56 am #

    Start off slow and build from there.

  160. Liv Howard March 1, 2017 at 9:01 am #

    I would LOVE one of these! To pretty for the boys to touch ???????? my exercise tip would be to make the most of what’s available to you and make it fun, it’s possible to have a fun workout in your back yard with just a towel on the grass! I did it yesterday with my best friend and workout buddy! ????

  161. Courtney nimmo March 1, 2017 at 9:24 am #

    Stretch! So so important ????

  162. Katrina Bain March 1, 2017 at 9:25 am #

    Find something you love to do as fitness instead of forcing yourself to do something you hate. Don’t like the idea of a gym? Get some work out DVDs instead. Love dancing? Do some YouTube dance workouts. Exercise doesn’t have to be boring, you just need to find what works for you.

  163. Toni March 1, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    Run with music. It distracts you from the discomfort and from getting too caught up in monitoring your breathing. It takes you to your happy place 🙂

  164. Erin Friar March 1, 2017 at 9:58 am #

    Try to find something you enjoy doing so you will want to keep doing it also something that can involve the whole family to help stay motivated.

  165. Kate March 1, 2017 at 10:40 am #

    Get outside while it’s still nice and take a mate to help motivate. Make the most of the awesome outdoor tracks and parks near where you live

  166. Emily March 1, 2017 at 10:45 am #

    Exercise with a friend and keep it fun and exciting! Sometimes putting on some music and dancing like a crazy person with your bestie is just what you need 🙂

  167. Heather Bunting March 1, 2017 at 10:52 am #

    Get out in the fresh air and put your self first, a small change in your lifestyle can make you feel great , just do it!!!

  168. Kendra Borrie March 1, 2017 at 10:53 am #

    It is worth doing even just 10 minutes of exercise and you can feel so much better for it – you don’t need to have 20 minutes free.

  169. Karen March 1, 2017 at 11:30 am #

    Make exercise dates with a friend. Scheduling your training activities and involving a friend or two increases the commitment ????

  170. Michelle March 1, 2017 at 12:22 pm #

    Get up early and workout, even if you dont feel like it 90% of the time once you get going youll be glad you got up- also good music to get you motivated and in the zone!!

  171. Kathryn March 1, 2017 at 12:39 pm #

    Listen to what YOUR body needs. I now feel more energised and toned doing half an hour body weight youtube workouts each morning as well as going for walks and incidental exercise than I was when I went to the gym 4-5 times a week using weights and cardio equipment. Plus always make time for stretching, just five deeps breaths per position, and you will feel so much better for it.

  172. Kirsten March 1, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

    Start the day with a low sugar, high protein breakfast to help you stay on track with your goals for the day

  173. JILL AUTRIDGE March 1, 2017 at 12:41 pm #


  174. Tracey Mantell March 1, 2017 at 12:55 pm #

    My tip is Never give up, even a 5 minute walk is better than none. You can do it.

  175. Charlotte Krijnen March 1, 2017 at 12:55 pm #

    Schedule exercise into your routine so that it becomes a regular habit. Exercise with someone or join classes so that you become more accountable. Make sure it’s something you enjoy doing so you stick at it. I would so love to win this! I’m keen to start running but would rather get some better fitness before hitting the streets where people can see me! Ha ha. Plus it would be great to use while my little ones nap and I can’t leave the house.

  176. Ashleigh March 1, 2017 at 2:08 pm #

    Don’t think “I have to exercise” or “I’m going to hate it”, think “I’m going to feel good doing it” or “I’m going to feel good afterwards” which gets you in a different and positive mindset!

    Also, listen to your body in terms of workouts times, I always used to want to be a morning exerciser but I hate mornings so would never do it! Someone finally asked me why I wanted to be exercise in the mornings and I had no actual reason other than just because so I stick with after work! If you are an after work exerciser don’t sit down on the couch until you have done so because that makes it even harder to get going! I don’t do my exercise straight away but instead of sitting down I prep dinner, put away dishes or washing, or do a bit of housework (so I don’t have to clean in the weekend) and then am ready to exercise!

  177. Nikki Mitchell March 1, 2017 at 3:00 pm #

    Mix it up! Don’t do the same thing everyday or you will get bored and more likely to give it up

  178. Jo March 1, 2017 at 4:07 pm #

    Its time to change! Its time for our whole family to change and we are slowly doing it. Have bought some books and we are all slowly adapting. Having this amazing Pink treadmill will be another motivating tool to have in our quest for a better lifestyle, especially with daylight saving finishing in a few more weeks, we can all motivate each other to make time to do more exercise and get to our goals sooner. This treadmill will be used as a team effort – no excuses!

  179. Amanda March 1, 2017 at 4:15 pm #

    Love what you’re doing!
    And adding high intensity intervals to basic training is awesome

  180. Sarah Armstrong March 1, 2017 at 4:36 pm #

    Find something you enjoy and don’t make your routines too strict

  181. Alanalp March 1, 2017 at 4:54 pm #

    My tip is to set goals and new challenges for yourself eg.sign up for a triathlon 🙂

  182. Jess Odering March 1, 2017 at 5:10 pm #

    Dont go solo if you find it hard to get motivated

  183. Mckenzie March 1, 2017 at 5:12 pm #

    My best fitness tip is to start a journal (I started a bullet journal) that gave me motivation to get up and work towards my goal. Love ticking things off a list!

  184. Steph March 1, 2017 at 5:45 pm #

    My tip is to just keep on keeping on! Even though that is eaiser said than done sometimes. Also group work ours are heaps of fun and keep you going 🙂

  185. Taryn March 1, 2017 at 5:51 pm #

    Enter an event and break it down into mini goals you can gradually achieve!

  186. Megan March 1, 2017 at 7:44 pm #

    Interval training on the treadmill changed my life!! Have never felt fitter! Do it!! Cardio is your best friend!!!

  187. Keri newman March 1, 2017 at 9:12 pm #

    Keep well hydrated with water
