Fall Into Fitness

sept

Don’t let the changing weather make you give up on your health and fitness goals. And if you’re just starting your health and fitness journey, Fall is a great time to begin!

“Fall … is a great time to start a fitness program because you’re going to create good habits for the holiday season and the upcoming winter months,” says Justin Price, owner of Biomechanics, a personal training and wellness coaching facility in San Diego, Calif.

Here four tips to help you maintain your healthy habits through the changing seasons:

1. Get Outside:  Without cooling temperatures, taking your fitness outside has never been better! Go for a hike and explore the beautiful fall scenery. Take a family bike ride, a jog, or walk in the park with a friend. Or just take some of your regular exercise moves and do them outside. You’ll be so glad you did this once the winter weather hits!

2. Make a Schedule: With kids back in school and on a regular schedule, make fitness and meal planning part of your routine. Set aside specific time to get your fitness in and prep your healthy meals. Fall is also a great time to explore different workout options and try something new!

3. Chores Can Be a Workout Too: Raking leaves or gardening burns about 150 calories every 30 minutes, so if you find that you don’t have time for exercise, grab a rake or a hoe, and turn seasonal tasks into a fat-burning workout.

4. Drink Your Water: It may not be as hot outside, but drinking your water is always important! Stay hydrated, help your body soak in those nutrients and flush toxins, and always drink before you snack (sometimes feeling hungry is a sign you’re actually thirsty).
