With Christmas and the holiday season drawing near, it becomes much harder to stick to regular exercise routines. Here are a few friendly tips to help get moving and stay moving over the Christmas break. Just remember any exercise is better than no exercise!
- Exercise – Think short & effective
Shorter periods of exercise, higher intensity
Ways to do this: Reduce rest time, increase speed,
increase weight, and reduce time
2. Get family involved
Find a local hike near your Christmas vacation spot.
Go for a family bike ride.
You-tube can be a great resource for workouts such as yoga,
or even check out our pre-recorded mat pilates sessions via you tube.
3. Use a calendar
Plan ahead – schedule your exercise in.
You can’t make excuses that you’re too
busy if you’ve made time for it prior!
4. Consistency is key
You know if we don’t use it, we LOSE it.
You don’t have to train hard, just train regularly.
This will help you maintain your fitness so it is
easier to resume exercise after the holidays.
5. Take easy exercise props away with you
Try taking a skipping rope, foam roller, exercise band or light weights.
We can help source these for you, so feel free to ask!
Also just a reminder that we will be open over the Christmas and New Year period (excluding Public Holidays) so if you are staying at home this Christmas you can keep coming in to your regular physio-led exercise class, or an alternate class if yours falls on a holiday!
Have a safe and happy holidays from all the Team at Inner Strength Bayside!
