7 Tips To Help You Stay Fit This Summer

Summer is well and truly here, and we all know how easy it is to chill out and eat an icy pole, rather than keep up your exercise routine - especially in the warmer weather.

Summer is well and truly here, and we all know how easy it is to chill out and eat an icy pole, rather than keep up your exercise routine - especially in the warmer weather.

Getting into shape for bikini season doesn’t have to be daunting. If you’re planning to tone up and stay fit over summer, there are a few steps you can take to make your workouts enjoyable and to keep yourself motivated.

1. Choose workouts that you will enjoy

You probably won’t go for a run if you hate running. So don’t even think about planning a run. Try going to a yoga class or playing tennis with a friend if that’s more your style.
Choose activities that excite you, and take advantage of the weather. If it’s a sunny day, make the most of it with an outdoor activity.

2. Plan your workouts

Having a plan in mind will help to keep you on track and accountable for your workouts. If mornings work for you, schedule your workouts for then, and plan the rest of your day accordingly. Putting pen to paper and writing down your goals is also an easy way to remind yourself why exercise is important to you, and you can refer to this later when you’re in need of inspiration.

3. Train with friends

Planning a workout or activity with a friend is the best way to be accountable for your exercise, and makes working out much more fun. Beach volleyball game, anyone?

4. Find Balance

Try to be consistent with your workouts. Developing a good routine will help you stay on track. Trying to move your body every day is important, even if it’s a brisk walk or spending an hour gardening. If you don’t feel like going to the gym, go for a run outside instead.
Rest and recovery is just as important as the exercise itself. You need to listen to your body - don’t push yourself too hard if you’re feeling worn out, and give your muscles a rest if they are sore.

5. Get the nutrition you need

As the body uses more energy, you need to make sure you’re feeding yourself with the nutrients you need to recover properly. To restore your energy levels after a workout, and to help your muscles recover, try getting some protein in your diet. A protein boost will help your overall wellness, energy levels, and immunity. It will assist your recovery after exercise, help to combat hunger cravings, and help with weight management and lean muscle building. A natural protein such as Bare Blends’ Organic Vanilla Bean WPI is perfect support for those with an active lifestyle.

6. Celebrate your success

Every time you reach a small goal, celebrate your progress. Make sure your goals are achievable and realistic, and stick to your guns. Working towards a reward also helps, for example, if you’ve stuck to your goal of four gym sessions for four weeks, reward yourself by going to get a massage, or buy yourself a new pair of running shoes. Your body will love you for it!
