With summer just around the corner, it’s time you started getting beach body ready. Knowing you’re going to be spending so much more time outside in tank tops and shorts should be enough of a reason to get off the couch and start working out. It’s time to get summer fit!
Summer fit before you know it…
Getting summer fit is more than looking great… You’ll be feeling better, stronger and just have a better mentality.
There’s nothing better than feeling your best, especially in the summer, but it can be difficult to know where to start over the next few months.
So here are five top ways to get fit, and look and feel your best before summer.
Set your goal
Whether you want to lose weight, run longer distances, or just lift more, setting a goal is the most important thing you can do.
Setting yourself any kind of goal makes it easier to put the work in, and you’ll feel great once you reach it. Just remember to keep it tough but realistic as you don’t want to be too disappointed if you can’t reach it.
Getting fit for the summer is so much more than just pushing yourself in the gym.
One of the most overlooked aspects of getting summer-ready is the importance of eating well. Eating healthy, with lots of greens and protein, is one of the best ways to make sure you stay at your fittest and healthiest.
Keeping a food journal and planning your meals is the best way to ensure that you stick to your clean eating goals.
Start a home calisthenics program
A lot of people find it hard to get to the gym, whether you’re a little too busy to dedicate the time, or if a membership is just too costly, you can still get fit at home.
There are some great home workout programs that require little to no equipment, and all at a minimal cost. So no matter what your excuse, you can always make time to get fit for the summer.
Set up a home gym
Setting up a home can help you reach your goals more quickly than you ever thought possible. Whether it’s a few simple weights or a complete gym – hitting your home gym will do wonders for your summer fitness goals.
Be on the lookout for equipment deals this time of year too!
Sometimes the most difficult thing about getting fit for summer is staying on the fitness track.
You’ve set your goal, you’re eating clean, and you’re in the gym almost every day… Some days it just doesn’t feel worth it. You’ve got to stay determined, stick to your goals and you’ll eventually reach it.
It can be hard, but feeling and looking your best in years by the time summer rolls around will make it all worth it.
