Get Fit Quick Tip:


Take a note from kids and add the PLAY to your workout!

Every once in awhile forget counting reps, sets and logging rest time, and go PLAY! Let loose and run, jump, skip and hop. Implementing one PLAY day per month is a great way to keep workout motivation high. Adding play to your workout is also a great way to take the pressure off of regulating intensity and such. Let your mind wander, get lost in your thoughts or the scenery around you. Invite friends and chat it up while getting active. Take a walk around your neighborhood, play with your kids, hit up the outdoor obstacle course at your local park!

Keep Fitness Motivation Going…

Get Fit Quick Tip:

Plan Ahead!

Healthy living does NOT take the weekend off! Keep motivation going by planning your weekend-fitness ahead of time.

Here’s how to keep your workouts (and motivation) happening on the weekends:

Invite friends. Invite friends to join in your workout. You’ll catch up on the week and as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun!

Race. Racing is a great way to insure your workouts happen on the weekend. Competing side by side with thousands of new friends, the energy will feed your motivation for weeks and months to come.

Go early. Get up early and log your workout before the sun (and your family) rises. Morning workouts likely means fewer interruptions and distractions.

Include physical activity into your daily routine. If a structured workout is difficult, consider adding fitness bursts into your day. Walk the soccer field while your child plays, stand instead of sit, ride bikes instead of driving.



Get Motivated- GO PLAY!

Get Fit Quick Tip:


How do you increase workout motivation? Make your fitness FUN! A fun workout means you’ll want to do it, which means you’ll be consistent. A consistent workout means results!

Revisit the play-days of your childhood with these fun workout ideas:

Jump Rope. Jumping rope is a great exercise to challenge your heart, muscles and coordination.

Obstacle Course. Set up an obstacle course that forces you to run, jump, crawl, balance and pull. Obstacle courses are limited only by your imagination.

Climb. Head to your local rock climbing wall and sign up for a lesson. Better yet, invite friends to join you. You’ll be empowered and energized, all while logging a challenging workout.

Hike. Leave your watch in the car and head to the trail. Take in the view while the terrain challenges your mind and your muscles.

Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Dance. What physical activities did you enjoy playing as a youngster? Adults can play too, GO!
