Summertime is officially here! This means school is out and summer travel is in! And although this change in season and mindset may seem like a reason to abandon your fitness routine, think differently. Sticking to your fitness goals all while having fun is easier than you might think! As a 24/7 hour gym with FREE childcare, we are here to support your goals this summer!
Here are some tips to get your fitness on the go in the summertime.
1. UTILIZE TRANSIT AS HYDRATION TIME
In order to avoid fatigue and dehydration, be sure to drink plenty of water throughout your trip.
Staying hydrated, especially when flying or spending long amounts of time in a car, is essential to an effective workout.
Here’s a tip: contemplate snagging an aisle seat for those frequent bathroom breaks!
2. DOWNLOAD YOUR FAVORITE FITNESS APP
There are so many great apps that can support you away from the gym. Some of our favorites include RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, Couch to 5K, and Strava. Be sure to download the apps, find regimens or
3. TAKE TURNS WATCHING THE KIDS
This summer, it may be difficult to find a babysitter during your gym time or outdoor fitness activities. However, you and your significant other, friend, or family member can take turns watching the little ones. For instance, while one parent takes the workout, the other can take the kids to lunch at a restaurant nearby. After the workout is over, you’d switch!
Don’t forget, your child is always welcome FREE of charge at Signature Fitness.
4. SIGN UP FOR THAT RACE YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO…
Now is the time to prioritize and sign up for that 5K, sprint triathlon, spartan race, or even a tough mudder!
5. CONSIDER A VACATION RENTAL INSTEAD OF A HOTEL
Eating healthy on vacation can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. One way to do this is to rent a vacation home instead of a hotel. With a kitchen nearby, you can be sure that you and your family stay on track with fitness goals. Not only will you be able to eat and cook healthily, but you could also save money on expensive hotel fees.
