Let’s get in shape for the summer of 2020. After everything we’ve gone through this Spring, we deserve a fantastic summer. Let’s make it happen!
Here’s our game plan to get in shape for the summer of 2020:
GET PLENTY OF SLEEP
Establish a soothing bedtime ritual and shoot for seven to nine hours per night.
EAT WITHIN A 10 HOUR WINDOW, AND FAST FOR 14
Periods of fasting allow your digestive system to rest, and speed up your metabolism.
TRY A NEW WORKOUT
Cross-training lowers your risk of injury and boredom, and challenges your body more. It’s a great way to get in shape for summer of 2020.
INSTILL A CHALLENGE MINDSET IN YOURSELF
It’s not drudgery or a chore, it’s a challenge, and you say “bring it on!”
NEVER GIVE UP
If you slip up, just get yourself right back up to speed, and remember why you started.
SHARE YOUR GOALS AND ACCOMPLISH-MENTS
Let your friends and family know about your goals and successes so they can support you.
High Intensity Interval Training will speed up your fitness gains so you can get in shape for Summer of 2020.
AVOID SUGAR & REFINED CARBS
Foods like donuts, bagels, pizza, chips and ice cream are not your friends, limit them.
PLAN A WORKOUT “HAPPY HOUR” WITH FRIENDS
Instead of drinking or eating out, try a Golden Home Fitness Group Training or Fitness class together.
EAT HEALTHY FATS & MODERATE PROTEIN FOR WEIGHT LOSS AND GOOD HEALTH
Foods like salmon, spinach, avocado, eggs, almond butter, olive oil and nuts are great choices. Options are limitless, find your faves.
FIBER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND
Fiber helps keep you feeling full, is good for digestive health, and has many added health benefits.
ORIENT YOUR LIFE AROUND YOUR GOALS
Keep healthy foods on hand and, if you’re really serious, consult a Golden Home Fitness Personal Trainer to ensure you get in shape for summer of 2020.
REWARD YOURSELF WITH NON-EDIBLE TREATS
Purchase a new bodycon outfit, get a massage, go to a concert or watch your favorite movie.
Love yourself throughout the journey and learn to enjoy the process of getting in shape.
UP YOUR WATER INTAKE
It reduces appetite, gets rid of waste, prevents water retention and boosts your metabolism!
MAKE A GREAT WORKOUT PLAYLIST
Music will motivate you and make you work harder, especially if it’s upbeat and positive.
MANAGE YOUR STRESS
Taking recovery days, and practicing meditation or yoga are good ways to manage your stress.
ENGAGE YOUR CORE
Target your abs with planks, sit-ups and bicycles, keeping your abs in as you do the exercises.
REMEMBER HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO BE IN GREAT SHAPE!
Every day you are one step closer to your goal, and your chances of getting in shape for summer of 2020 are skyrocketing!
