2017’s Summer Best Fitness Suggestions

By |2018-04-01T09:00:09-05:00June 30th, 2017|Fitness, Health|3 Comments

Today's post is suggestions for 2017's Summer best fitness workouts. So, let's not skip exercising due to the Summer heat. Of course, we all know how important it is to keep fit. Summer Best Fitness Suggestions So, are you ready to look hot, while keeping cool? In the first place, try to keep your body cool at all times. You can try taking a cool shower, or keep a damp cloth nearby. If you're a runner, find a shady path. Find a time of the day that works best with your body temperature. Since most of us are fans of walking, why not start your day off with a morning walk. If you're like me, you prefer to walk indoors. I prefer walking in the comfort of air conditioning. Indeed, I start my day walking on the treadmill. Indoor Summer Best Fitness Options In the same fashion, many health clubs and gyms run specials in the Summer months. Because more individuals are outdoors, you're apt to find a gym less crowded. For example, consider joining a fitness class that meets indoors. Also, you can work out in the comfort of your own home. Another tip is to find an indoor swimming pool and take water aerobics. You can find water aerobics at many local YMCA's. Summer Best Fitness Outdoor Options With Summer heat, it is important to keep your body hydrated. By drinking cold water, you're keeping your body temperature comfortable. If you're a late sleeper, you may want to adjust your schedule. If you wake up earlier, temperatures are usually lower in the early morning hours. Again, if mornings don't work for you, try exercising in the evening. When exercising, it is important to wear comfortable clothes. You don't have to wear spandex, however you should wear clothing that keeps your body from rubbing against you. After exercising, skip eating for at least 30 minutes. Of course, it is important to continue to drink water throughout your fitness activity. Another great exercise option is to play beach volleyball or Paddleball. If you enjoy cycling, make sure [...]

Habit Forming Exercise Tips

By |2017-09-07T09:46:28-05:00August 5th, 2016|Fitness, Health, Inspiration|3 Comments

My best advice for surviving bathing suit season is to exercise.  If you have trouble exercising, try the following tips as part of your everyday lifestyle. Find something you like and you're more likely to do it regularly.  For instance, you may like softball, volleyball, dancing, or running, join a club or find a class. Change your routine - switching things up keeps it interesting.  Many get bored doing the same thing over and over again. Try something new.  By participating in something new or interesting, you're keeping things fresh. Schedule time with yourself.  It is important to have some alone time.  Find time in the morning, at lunch or in the evening for some downtime.  One of my favorite alone things to do is to find a shady area outdoors and read a book.  See my Summer reading post. Find someone to join you on an activity or class.  When you have someone joining you, it is easier to stick to a routine. Set goals.  Set a plan in motion.   If you're looking to lose weight, start a diet.  Reward yourself when you have reached your goal.  Some non-food rewards to consider are shopping for something new, treat yourself to a spa treatment or take a mini-vacation. Have reasonable goals.  Don't set yourself up to fail.  Find something you like to do.  When you enjoy something, it is easier to continue participating. Habit Forming Exercise Challenge yourself by participating in something you enjoy.  Some habit forming exercise to consider are: Walking - Take a long walk on the beach, a park, or neighborhood. Bicycling - Cycling gives you good cardiovascular exercise.  You can bicycle either by yourself or with someone. Tennis - Even if you're not a serious tennis player, you can enjoy volleying the ball back and forth.  This is a fun activity to do in the morning or evening. Volleyball - It is fun to play on the beach or with a group of people. Softball - There are many softball leagues in towns and cities everywhere. In any event, habit forming exercise tips can [...]
