7 mistakes people make when getting in shape for their Ibiza holiday

You have it all figured it out in your head. You will train hard, eat clean and you will turn heads on the beaches of Ibiza looking fit and with confidence and pride… You can do this and if you avoid these 7 things and you will make it.

1. Don’t start too late

For months ahead you know when the Ibiza holiday season kicks off, so start in time. Summer bodies are truly made in winter. There is no quick fix. Get moving now.


2 Don’t starve yourself

When you train 3 times a week your body needs nutrients.. Don’t diet, cleanse or juice until you drop. Once or twice a year a cleanse is more than enough. Eat healthily and balanced and you are well on your way.

3. Don’t do the same training routine over and over again

Your body is a clever design of nature. It adapts to resistance quickly. So mix things up. How…? Change the intensity, volume and rest period. Work in programmes that last 4 to 8 weeks and change the programme after that.

4. Stay away from 2 kg pink dumbbells!

Lift heavy, period! Absolutely do this if you want your body to change. I can hear you think ladies, ‘But I don’t want to look like a bodybuilder.’ You will not. If you don’t belong to the 1% of the girls who have to much male testosterone you are fine.

5. Fail to stick to the programme

Friends, I urge you stick to it. Don’t stop after 2 sessions and say that the programme does not work. Read point 3 again.


6 Stay away from the machines!

Don’t sit in the abductor machine and expect to get killer legs like Beyoncé! Use compound lifts like squats and deadlifts. Get instruction for your safety. Use free weights and let your whole body work as one. You are not a collection of body parts.


7 Don’t do it all by yourself

Get yourself a personal trainer! Trust me, it is worth every penny. You will become motivated, and you will get the results you seek.

  1. My room was WieeTn-ihn-Pooh themed…my parents painted a gigantic Winnie on the wall with balloons made out of fabric. I love the pictures of my parents (mom ESPECIALLY pregnent) finishing up my room before I was born.
