British Summer Time, March 26th, is just around the corner so many of you may look at this time of year to come out of hibernation and kick-start your fitness regime again.
The winter can have a negative effect on our exercise schedules. The cold dark nights and mornings put a downer on our energy levels and it becomes too easy to stay inside where it's warm and cosy. We put off working out so much that it becomes the norm.
All that inactivity during the winter usually means we put on a few extra pounds which makes it harder to get back into the swing of things but there are a few ways to help get you motivated towards working out again.
Below are 5 tips that will help get you back on track so you can start working towards that beach body and looking good in your new summer wardrobe.
Having an exercise buddy helps you stay motivated during your workouts. You are also less likely to skip any sessions as you won't want to let each other down by not turning up.
Starting a new class or workout programme keeps you from getting stuck in a rut and just going through the motions. Get out of your comfort zone and test yourself with new exercises. You can get great results by keeping your body guessing.
Now the summer is coming the weather is more welcoming for outdoor exercise. Get off the treadmill and run around the park. Join a bootcamp or take up a new sport. Or just enjoy a good long family walk or bike ride on the weekends.
Now the mornings are brighter there’s more encouragement to throw back the duvet and get out there for a workout. Exercise in the morning and the hardest part of your day is complete while others are still hitting the snooze button. You'll feel great for the rest of the day.
There is no better way to improve your fitness than by getting an expert to help you out. A personal trainer will ensure you get the most from your workouts, keep you motivated, and hold you accountable.
