There is something very magical about the holidays. The season is filled with holiday cheer, beautiful decorations, snow (hopefully), and spending quality time with family and friends. Often times, however, that quality time comes along with what people consider to be the enemy of their health and fitness goals... HOLIDAY PARTIES. However, I believe these parties have no reason to knock people of track, because there is a way to balance the fun times while prioritizing your fitness goals at the same time. Fitness Inspired is here to show you how with 8 Fabulous Tips to ROCK and feel great about any holiday party before and after…
As fitting as it is... we are doing a Thanksgiving theme this November for our Fitness Inspired Boot Camp programs. Plot twist and to my brother's dismay LOL, I separated the words out into 3 different words which will be our focus-- Happy, Thanks, and Giving versus the 2 word version that my brother, Kyle got hung up on ;)
I am so excited for this theme as I have been obsessing (in a totally healthy way I hope! ask my husband for confirmation on this;) )about:
1. Gets your happy hormones pumping - who doesn't love some endorphins that are produced when you get your sweat on?
2. Accomplished: Makes you feel good about doing what you set out to do. When you feel accomplished it gives you a happiness boost!
"Treat Yo'self!" .... it's a fun hashtag and phrase that has been popular for a bit now. I think it is so important to indulge and take care of yourself on a regular basis. However, sometimes a treat may sound like a really good ideas, but then the after math is not such a great "treat" at all! Have you ever had a time where you were going to have 1 cookie but that 1 cookie lead to 5? Or have you ever went out to dinner to celebrate a success but then all you were left with was a big bill and too many extra calories? No one wants that! Here is a list of some healthy treats and ideas that will allow you to "treat yo'self" without the negative aftermath.
We have been challenged ourselves to do a gutsy act or action. Here are some examples Fitness Inspirers have done to inspire you...
1.You don’t have to worry about working out the entire day!
When you workout early in the morning, you not only start off the day feeling refreshed, but you also don’t have to worry about getting your exercise in for the rest of the day! It’s so easy to make excuses to avoid working out. Feeling sluggish? Have to run errands? NO EXCUSES! Wake up and get it done before the excuses and distractions kick in! Exercising in the morning will improve your adherence to exercise and allow you to form healthy habits in all aspects of your life. Check out this article to learn more
Immediate & Long-term Benefits of Exercise“Work out, it’s good for you!” is a saying you have heard people say all of your life. Doctors, teachers, coaches, and friends are always preaching exercising is a great way to stay healthy and feel better, but have you ever wondered exactly what that means? What is it about exercise that makes it so good for you? Researchers and people all over the country are realizing time and time again that working out has so many beneficial attributes. Some of these post-exercise effects occur immediately after you finish working up a sweat (which is super motivating for the people like me who love a quick win and that it feels satisfying right away), and others are benefits that occur over a long term period of habitual physical activity. These benefits can be seen in many areas, but some of the best effects are seen in the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of someone’s daily routine. Here are just a few highlights of the greatest benefits working out has to offer in relation to these three sectors of your life.
We have all been there. The alarm starts going off early in the morning to wake you up. Yet, you barely got 5 hours of sleep, you feel super tired, so you press the snooze button two or three times before you actually get out of bed. You might not realize it, but these bad sleeping habits are going to negatively effect the rest of your day and overtime for the rest of your life if the habits persist.
At Fitness Inspired, we strive to exemplify and help people learn what it means to live a healthy lifestyle. “Wake up and Work Out” and “Follow the Food Plan” are always principles we swear buy during our monthly boot camps. However, maybe there is one thing we need to prioritize just as much as those two things. That thing is sleep. Sleep may be one of the key components in helping you reach your health and fitness goals you have set in short and long term. Here are three things a good night’s sleep can do to help supplement a healthy lifestyle.
