As soon as the warmer weather settles in, we feel the need to get back in shape. But whilst the later months of the year motivate us to get fit, the question still remains, how exactly do you do that?
Well to help you on your journey to getting in Summer shape, here are some tips to help you on your way.
Yoga is a different type of workout – not your traditional heart rate up, sweaty type of work out. You do not need to be extra flexible, Yoga can be adapted to your level of fitness, so this is great for those starting out.
Not only does Yoga help with your physical health but it also has great benefits for your mind too, I mean who couldn’t do with a bit of destressing at this time of the year?
You will most definitely benefit from increased fitness and wellbeing, moving through yoga poses requires strength and mindfulness. If you’re looking for a type of workout that will allow you to unwind and provide you a positive health benefit, Yogo is it.
Walking is a great low impact way of improving your quality of life and getting you in Summer shape. Walking in conjunction with Yoga works to increase your cardiovascular fitness and to treat conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, joint and muscular pain and even diabetes.
If you want to take things up a notch, then you can look at HIIT.
If you’ve never heard of HIIT (high-intensity interval training) it is a type of workout that is well-known for its efficiency, as it helps you burn a lot of calories in short periods of time.
HIIT works to maintain a high metabolic rate so that even after the workouts have finished, your body is still burning calories.
Obviously, any Summer program can’t be complete without healthy eating habits and a reduction in Alcohol. If you are wanting to get in shape this summer and you’ve got any questions, refer to your local GP for specialist advice before setting out.
