In the fitness industry, the beginning of summer is usually a slow time. People are either summer-ready or have given up.
Just because summer is here doesn’t mean we should settle, though. Here are a few quick tips to drop some fat while having fun this summer.
Take advantage of the warmer weather and spend time doing outdoor activities such as walking/jogging, swimming, hiking, or playing sports like basketball or soccer. You could even make it a daily family activity.
You need to step up your water consumption during these warmer months. Not only does your body need more water to deal with the heat, it helps your body with digestion and muscle activity. This means that you can keep having fun outside without worrying about muscle cramps.
Try to reduce or eliminate processed foods and fast food. Yes, we know they're delicious, but nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables and complex carbs will keep you feeling fuller and energetic for longer.
It's perfect weather to pull out those barbecues and grill up some lean proteins and vegetables. Eating healthy does not have to be tasteless and boring!
If you have been doing the same workouts forever, consider trying something completely new. Take a Zumba class or try surfing. Hire a personal trainer. Take this opportunity to try something new that sounds like a good time.
Whatever you decide to do, staying fit through the summer doesn't have to be a bore!
