Summer Fitness Tips
Put the cool factor back into your workout routine with these simple and easy fitness tips!
Beat the Heat!
Start your day out right with some morning exercise. Get active before the heat hinders your workout. The hottest hours of the day are in between 10:00am and 3:00pm.
Staying Motivated Over the Summer
Add in some fun summer activities to your fitness routine. Volleyball, Frisbee, Biking around the neighborhood, or even a light swim are all effective ways to burn calories. Getting outside and adding random acts of fitness into your day will make your workouts fun and summer-friendly.
Pay Attention to Your Heart Rate
With increases in temperatures, your body must work harder just to complete your normal fitness activities. Because of this, it is important to keep track of your heart rate so you can make sure you are not pushing yourself too hard in the heat and risk heat exhaustion.
Don’t Forget to Rest and Recover
Don’t be too intense on your body. You need to take breaks from high intensity workouts and allow your body to recover. Alternating activities such as yoga and Thai Chi into your normal, high intensity workouts is a great way to let your body recover while still keeping in shape.
