Your Goals Don't Take a Break During the Summer, Especially in Spokane!

Your Goals Don't Take a Break During the Summer, Especially in Spokane!

We all know how busy we get when the weather turns warm, the kids are out of school, and there are a bazillion BBQ's to attend and weeds to pull. More often than not the fitness goals we set in January to be ready for summer are not met and we just prioritize things that seem more important than our health. But why start all over again in September? Keep your progress going with these three tips.

1) Prioritize Your Exercise

Tip number one – remember that the things you fit in are the things you prioritize.  Prioritize your fitness and get it scheduled before your other commitments take over.  That way you know you will show up for your workouts.

Action Step:  Before filling your day with everybody else’s agenda, block out 20-60 minutes for yourself a few times each week.  It doesn’t have to be at the same time every day, but that often helps our clients stay consistent.

2) Find Kid-Friendly Activities

Tip number two – if you have kids and your kids need you to be there at all times, find activities, workouts, or programs that you can bring your kids to.  Find a gym that has a daycare center or maybe an outdoor bootcamp in a park where your kid can run around. The bottom line is that you will need to find a place that can accomodate your kids while you are taking time for yourself getting your workout in.

Action Step:  Look for studios, like Catalyst, that have kid friendly areas or allow older kids to workout with parents. Our small group training and semi-private personal training are great for family members to workout together! And we offer student discounts!

3) Take Advantage Of What Summer Offers

Tip number three – take advantage of what summer has to offer.  At least here in the Spokane area, winter isn't everyone's cup of tea for outdoor activities, so make sure you are finding all the new parks and paths to explore outside this summer season.

Action Step:  See if you can have at least one of your workouts each week be outside.  Go for a run, ride your bike, or find a place to go hiking. Whatever you do, summer is here now, and while you still need to get your resistance training in indoors, let the summer weather allow you to do your cardio work outside.

Love your INW weather and take advantage when you can, but don't let it derail your goals!
