We all know Spring is the best time for getting in shape. The sun is up earlier, the sky is blue, the promise of summer holidays, entertaining and relaxing is just around the corner. And Pilates instructors are full of inspiration! Having made it through the early starts in the dark, it’s so rewarding seeing our dedicated regulars come through the other side of winter and start to step up their fitness routines. Plus, we welcome enthusiastic new faces into our studio which brings a buzz of excitement.
So, how can you harness all that is great about Spring to get maximum benefits??
Here’s our top tips:
- Commit to a routine, and book in advance. You are way more likely to turn up to a class that you’ve booked, and classes quickly fill up at this time of the year.
- Challenge yourself with something new. If you’ve been doing Reformer classes, try TRX. If you attend trio sessions, pick a new goal to work towards. A change is as good as a holiday and attempting something challenging will get you motivated to conquer it.
- Workout with a friend. We love hearing your weekly routines of TRX followed by smoothies! Or lunch break debriefs on Reformers. Exercise is a healthier way to catch up with a mate, and you can never underestimate the power of not wanting to be the one to cancel.
- Pick your personal driving force and watch for results. A toned, lean and stronger body might be the aim of your fitness game, or you might be more focused on the health and wellbeing benefits of better concentration, better energy, and a guaranteed endorphin rush. Whatever your goal, keep track and watch for changes. In 10 weeks, when Summer hits you’ll be glad you started now.
There’s no excuse for not feeling motivated at this time of the year, so jump on that feeling and reap the rewards!
