Surviving Summer Fitness

You’ve almost made it, summer vacation is half over, one more month to go. Staying fit and active in the summer can sometimes pose challenges, whether it’s finding time away while the kids are on vacation or trying to stay cool. Here are some tips on surviving summer and staying active.

  • Cooler workout times– try working out in the early morning or in the evening while it the outdoor temperature is cooler.
  • Stay hydrated– drinking water before, during and after a workout will help to regulate your body temperature.
  • Go for non-traditional workouts– while it is a beautiful time of year to go for a run, and the gym is air conditioned try some less traditional “workouts.” Take the kids to the corn maze or zoo, you won’t get a hard core workout but you will get in your ten thousand steps for the day. Or try swimming your laps at the lake instead of the pool. You can explore local trails via bicycle, or hike out west. You can even take the kids to the park and do your workout there.
  • Stay Routine– summer is the time of foot-loose and fancy free but
    keeping some kind of schedule will help you feel success full with your summer fitness goals.
  • Remember to sleep– the hardest part about summer is that it stays light out for so long into the evening. As much as you may want to stay up until dark, try to train yourself to go to bed before dark, your body will thank you come fall.
