As the weather changes, workout routines tend to change too. The shorter, cooler days often put our motivation to exercise into hibernation! However you feel about getting and staying active this autumn, making proper adjustments is crucial to keeping your workout plan on track during the season.
Let us provide a few tips for staying fit:
1. First of all, keep training with us. EMS thankfully does not based on the weather, so rainy days are not an issue, the training is still only 20 minutes and more effective than anything else. Also move your outside activities indoor, swim in the pool, bike on a stationary one, run on a treadmill.
2. Make exercise a social gathering. One of the great things about exercise is that it does not need to be done alone. Find a friend with similar fitness levels and goals to you. Having an exercise partner will keep you both motivated. Best of all, you can use your exercise time to catch up on each other’s lives.
3. Walk the dog while enjoying the cooler temperatures, the colours and crisp breezes without having to worry about either of you overheating. The fresh air will be great for your mind and your body, and your dog too.
4. Get active while sitting at your desk by following the Swiss ball trend. Start by pushing away your desk chair for an hour a day and replacing it with a Swiss ball. This will not only strengthen your abdominals and core while working, but will keep concentration levels at an all time high, because you constantly have to stabilise yourself.
Ensure you continue to drink sufficient water. You may not feel as hot as over the summer months so may not feel the desire to drink as much, however, fluid loss is still an important consideration.
