7 Ways to Upgrade Your Fall Workout
Now that the temperatures are backing down, the entry into fall means a perfect season to keep up with healthy habits. With holidays fast approaching, there’s no reason to let slip all your efforts toward your goals. Often, many people start a downward spiral that begins with holiday gatherings until the New Year when they vow once again not to do the same things that derailed them.
How about changing that from happening by upgrading your fall workout? Here are 7 ways to do that!
1. Hit the trails
You have to admit, we’re lucky we live in such beautiful surrounds. Use that to inspire you to get outdoors. Whether you walk, jog, bike, or run, it’s a wonderful way to get exercise while refreshing your spirit. Plus, that daily dose of vitamin D does wonders for immunity and bone health so don’t miss out on it!
2. Try something new
Have you been curious about a new sport or workout? Give it a try. You’ll be more likely to stick to your goals if you find something new to enjoy that keeps you motivated. Whether it’s yoga or Zumba, or even rock climbing, embrace it!
3. Take to the rink
And here’s one you can use all winter long too…ice skating! This sport really works your muscles and can help you burn fat hours and hours after you shelve your skates. It’s great fun, especially if you go with friends.
4. Use heavier weights
Challenge yourself to lift more. You won’t be able to do as many reps, but you’re still giving your body a new hurdle to jump. Work up to as many reps as you did on the lighter weights and you’re going to see results.
5. Sign up for a competition
Have you always wanted to run a race? Compete in a triathlon? Enter a competition for weight lifting? There are so many different challenges you can sign up for. It doesn’t matter if you win but you will be motivated to keep to your goals if you’re engaging in something like this. Consider a charity run to keep yourself motivated while doing good for the community.
6. Use your home tech
You don’t need anything except your own body for a killer workout. You can do an HIIT set of exercises while listening to your favorite music. You can ride your exercise bike, run on the treadmill, or use your stair-stepper. Turn it into your own class with workout videos or live music streams.
7. Get a personal trainer
If you really want to keep your healthy habits without any excuses, you need to hold yourself accountable. That’s what a personal trainer will do. They can help cultivate a plan that works for you and challenges you as you reach new goals. Plus, they’ll become a great friend that motivates you to be your very best.
