Most of us enjoy group fitness classes because, lets face it, exercising alone isn’t nearly as much fun! At classes we get to connect with friends and fellow exercisers, many of whom motivate us to push ourselves a little bit harder. Being accountable also adds to the benefits of group fitness; it helps when we have a specific time and place to show up to!
This might partially explain why many of us slack off our fitness regime during the summer months. It’s ok to take a week off here and there but months at a time will only make it more difficult to return to our workouts in the fall.
If we devise a plan to stay on track we’re more apt to stick with it. Even a simple 30 minute workout that incorporates cardio and strength training will keep us fit and strong when we’re away from home.
Knowing you’ll be getting up in the morning to exercise will keep you mindful of what you’re eating and drinking the night before too!
Here’s a simple workout anyone can do..almost anywhere. Start with the basic plan and mix it up by reversing the order of the exercises or adding a second round of the strength moves.
Do this type of workout two or three times a week. Everybody’s “run strong” is different. Be sure to challenge yourself for maximum benefits!
