Spring is the perfect time to start a fitness program. After all that winter comfort food and hibernating indoors, our bodies could use a post-winter boost. If you want to put fitness first as the weather warms up, we’re here to help. We’ve put together a few must-try tips for losing weight and feeling great this season.
Find an activity you love
There’s no better way to give yourself a post-winter boost than to get active in a way that doesn’t feel like a burden. Grumbling your way to the gym every day will get old fast (trust us), so before you sabotage your fitness goals with a humdrum workoutroutine, do some experimenting. Try an outdoor boot camp at your local park (look for advertisements as the weather warms up, or look online for nearby options) or a new class at your gym, or sign up for a sport you love but haven’t played in a while. The more fun working out feels, the more motivated you’ll be to burn calories.
Now that it’s (finally) nice out, you have the option of moving your fitness routine outdoors — an excellent way to keep things interesting. Whether you start walking to work every day, take up running or join a coed baseball league with a few friends, find a way to get some fresh air as you get fit. Being outdoors can often feel much less constricting than a gym, meaning you’ll be more likely to feel better about whatever activity is on your workout schedule, be it playing tag with the kids, a game of touch football or having a yoga session on your deck.
