Time to Come out of Hibernation


Did the holidays or winter weather interfere with your normal workout routine? It happens to the best of us, but now that the weather is warming up it is the perfect time to get your exercise routine back on track. Bouncing back might not happen overnight, but there are many things you can do to ease you back into your routine and here are a few for you to consider.

1. Set reasonable goals – If you have been taking a break from your regular routine it will take a little while to get yourself back into the swing of things. Setting unreasonable goals may negatively impact your motivation.

2. Get it on the schedule – Put your workout plan on your calendar. Schedule a consistent time to work out. Contact you local NexGen and set recurring session times. Having a routine can help ensure you follow through with your workout plans.

3. Make sure you warm up before strenuous exercise – Taking a little extra time to warm up can help ensure you avoid injury which could lead to you needing to take an even longer break.

4. Don’t forget to stretch – Regular stretching can increase flexibility and range of motion thereby helping your muscles to work more effectively.

5. Think outside the gym – Switch it up. Go for a walk, workout with your private personal trainer at NexGen, take a swim, etc. Get yourself moving with a variety of activities to keep your workouts fresh. An ideal workout routine blends cardio and strength training.

6. Be nice to yourself – Being patient and kind to yourself is just as important as being patient and kind to with others.

Let the expert trainers at your local NexGen Studio help you ease your back into a plan to help you meet all your fitness goals.
