Spring is in full swing and those pounds you put on over the winter don’t match anything you have in your swimsuit collection. It’s not too late to get lean before pool season begins. Spring is the perfect time to begin changing your habits to meet a healthier lifestyle. Here are some different ways you can change your fitness routines and diet plans to look better this summer.
Make a Personal Plan
It’s important to make a personal plan of what you want to achieve and by when. Preferably 3 months to the date of your vacation or goal date is when it should all start. Make sure to be realistic, it takes longer than you might think to really change your body. It won’t just happen on day 1!
Rebuild Your Strength in the Gym
First things first, if you have been “taking it easy” over the winter, you’re going to need to rebuild your strength in the gym. Start visiting 5 to 6 times a week to perform light cardio on the treadmill, elliptical or exercise bike wearing your Garmin Vivoactive 3 GPS Fitness Smartwatch to track your progress. You should also begin to incorporate weights into your workouts until you’re comfortable enough to get back into your normal fitness routine.
Purchase Trail Running Shoes
Nothing breaks up the monotony of running on a treadmill all winter than the natural beauty and variety of a dirt or asphalt trail. By purchasing a brand new pair of trail running shoes, you’ll be more motivated to explore different parks and trails, which will add variety to your workout.
Discover a New Fitness Routine
Are you tired of performing the same cardiovascular exercise or weight training year in and year out? Spring is a great time to check out new programs such as yoga, Pilates or boot camps with other people.
Join a Sports League
If you’re looking to build your fitness while also building some team camaraderie, join a sports league at your local park. Traditional games such as soccer, football and softball are easy to find. These Garmin Vivofit Jr. Activity Trackers from Buydig.com will allow you to track your kid’s fitness progress during their games as well.
Eat Your Greens
Not only does spring provide the perfect conditions for getting back into shape, it also provides the perfect conditions for growing leafy vegetables. Load up on seasonal specialties made with kale, spinach, asparagus, artichoke and spring greens for a boost of iron and protein in your diet plan. Track your calories burned so you can stay on track by using the Samsung Galaxy Active Watch with built-in Bluetooth from Buydig.com.
Set a Goal for September or October
Most marathons, triathlons and large obstacle course races take place towards the end of summer and the beginning of fall. The Samsung Gear Fit2 pro Fitness Smartwatch will help track your progress towards this goal. With a goal in sight for the end of summer you’ll have increased motivation to keep up with your fitness plans.
It’s time to kick-start your healthy routines and give some attention to your body so you can be confident, comfortable, and healthy and look your best!
