Fitness and wellbeing month: Tip six - don't aim for perfect, aim for consistency

Jan 09, 2019

Every day throughout January the Sports Centre will be sharing top fitness and wellbeing tips with you. Salford's very own fitness gurus Daley O'Neal and Michael Thomasson will be giving out quick-fire, manageable tips aimed at getting your body and mind on track for a healthy 2019. From building a good relationship with exercise to taking advantage of the classes and facilities right here on campus, there's lots to keep you motivated. Plus they'll be giving away a month's free Sports Centre pass - all you need to do is tell us how you're applying one of their tips in your everyday life (simply email us at or tweet us at @USinternalcomms). 

In order to maintain a good relationship with exercise, do what is best for you and don’t compare yourself to others. Everybody is doing what is best for them. There isn't any point competing with people since you may be aiming to achieve different targets and meet different goals.

The unhappier you become with results when you start comparing them to others, the more likely you are to develop an unhealthy relationship with exercising. Don’t aim for perfection, aim for consistency.
