How did you spend your summer vacation?
Chances are it consisted of a lot of fun and maybe a bit of overconsumption when it comes to food and drinks. Don’t worry, there’s no better time to tone up and refocus on your goals!
Now that September is here, it’s time to get your fitness back in gear. With 24/7 access to your Snap Fitness club, there is always time to work out. It’s all about creating or getting back to a consistent fitness routine.
Here are four tips that will get you back on track to your fitness goals:
Plan your workouts: If you don’t have a calendar or a daily planner, get one! This is your fresh start to a fantastic fall routine. Map out your week with work, family, or school plans. From there, you can fill in where your weekly workouts will fit best. Writing it down will also help hold you accountable. Keep your word with what’s in your planner!
Bring a buddy: Can’t decide between working out or meeting up with an old friend? Do both! Plan weekly workout dates with your friends. This is a great way to stay social but also committed to your fitness. Snag two treadmills next to each other and catch up during your warm-up jog. You can also see what group fitness classes available at your club and make that part of your routine!
Eat right: Nutrition plays a key part in building and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Food gives you energy, so you need to make sure you’re feeding your body with the right foods. If you’re snacking on sweets or swinging through the drive-thru regularly, you aren’t filling your body with the necessary nutrients it needs to keep your body running. If you have any questions about nutrition, ask one of your club staff members for help!
Treat yourself: Set goals for yourself — both short and long-term. A short-term goal could be as basic as “work out three times a week for a month.” Once you reach that, give yourself a little treat! Maybe it’s a frozen yogurt run with your friends or those running shoes you’ve had your eye on at the store. This will give you extra motivation to keep up your hard work!
