5 Tips to Get Summer Strong

Invest in your better future. #ForABetterTomorrow

Warmer weather and longer days mean summer is nearly here! Here are five tips to help you get Summer Strong, ready to take on every adventure and activity you want to enjoy summer to the max!

SET YOUR FOCUS.

Start by setting a specific goal for your summer fitness journey. Knowing your purpose and when you want to achieve it by will help you create a roadmap to succeed. Then, tracking your progress along the way with a fitness journal, InBody scans (your first one is free with a membership!) and how you feel during different activities over time will help you know if you’re on track or need to alter your plan to reach your goal.

START MOVING!

Take a cycling class, swim laps in our pool or watch your favorite show while on the treadmill! Improving the function and performance of your heart, lungs are circulatory system are the primary results of cardio, and different types of cardio can build specific muscles. Start small, then add a few minutes to your workout, or pepper in higher-intensity spurts or intervals each time to steadily increase your endurance.

BUILD YOUR STRENGTH.

Incorporating strength training helps build lean muscle mass, boost metabolism, increase bone density and improve overall fitness. Add bodyweight exercises, weights or strength training classes to your routine.

FUEL YOUR BODY.

Eating a balanced diet is essential for fueling your workouts and building lean muscle mass. Focus on what to add to your diet, including enough protein and whole, nutrient-dense foods. Start by adding foods that will best fuel and satiate you at every meal — that will naturally help you avoid highly processed or sugary foods that can sabotage your progress.

REST & RECHARGE.

Ensure you allow time for your body to recover — it’s essential for long- term success. Create space to relax and recover, taking at least one full day off of exercise per week. Hang out with friends or get extra sleep. On workout days, try using our saunas or hot tubs post-workout. Find a rhythm of working out and recovering that feels best for you.

Remember to listen to your body, stay consistent and enjoy the process of getting stronger and healthier every day. Let’s create your better tomorrow!
