As the days become longer and warmer, you may be feeling motivated to revive your fitness routine. The season of renewal and rebirth is a great chance to evaluate what's working for you and what isn't. And with the mild spring weather, there are more options than any other time of year to get your body moving.
Here are four suggestions to help you make the most of the season and get your fitness routine back on track:
1. Utilize outdoor activities. Take advantage of the increased sunlight and pleasant temperatures by engaging in outdoor activities like tennis, hiking, swimming or just grab your home workout equipment and take it outdoors. If it’s not feasible to go outside, you can always workout in the comfort of your home.
2. Try something new. Get excited about working out by signing up for a new class or activity. Ask friends for recommendations or check out social media to find what’s available in your area. You can also find free trainings on YouTube or other exercise blogs.
3. Use a calendar to plan workouts. Make sure to plan in advance for your workouts and set reminders to keep yourself accountable. Physically penciling in a mix of outdoor, gym time, and classes will help you stay on track with your fitness routine.
4. Spring clean your gear. Gather worn out clothes, leaky water bottles, and expired supplements and replace them with new ones. Inspect weights and resistance bands, and deep clean any bulkier pieces of equipment you own. Investing in a few new outfits or accessories can also help get you excited about working out again.
