It’s hard to go past Summer as our FAVOURITE season! While you could spend the longer days at your home chatting and enjoying with friends, the extra hours of daylight plus warmer mornings and evenings present a great opportunity to be more active and try new forms of exercise.
Summer is perfect time to develop healthy new habits to carry into colder months when the weather isn’t as inviting. Here are some ideas of new activities to explore in the coming months:
Walk the Talk
If you are out of practice exercising or group sports aren’t your thing then head outside and start walking. Ask a friend to trade in your regular catch up over coffee or a lunch, for a session pounding the parks and pavements. You’ll still get your catch up but also added activity and a chance to take in a bit of the great outdoors!
Give Running a Go
If your aim for these months is to achieve significant weight loss or you want to improve your fitness fast, then you need to introduce more intensive forms of exercise than walking. This is because your body adapts quickly to new forms of activity and walking will not be enough of a trigger point on its own to prompt serious weight loss or fitness gains.
Learn to Dance
Try a beginner’s dance class, whether it’s swing dancing, salsa or Zumba, these classes can be a great way to get moving, have fun and meet new people. They are also fun to have with a partner or friend and you get the added bonus of being able to surprise people with your brilliant new moves.
