You’ll love these summer fitness tips to help kickstart your healthy lifestyle!

  • Pick up the pace! No matter where you are, you can pick up the pace. Walk a little faster to the bathroom, skip to your car, jog to Starbuck’s. You go so many places every single day, so why not just go a little faster?
  • Carry a reusable water bottle! We can all afford to drink more water and save the environment at the same time with a reusable bottle. If you are sure to take water everywhere you go, then you’ll be more likely to drink it throughout the day. I love my Camelbak Better Insulated Bottle, 0.6 Litre, Magenta.
  • No time? No Problem! If you don’t have time to workout, then you need to do more intense workouts in the time you do have. When you feel too tired to do anything. Get up and push as hard as you can for a short amount of time. It will be totally worth it and you’ll feel great.
  • Keep a Food Log! This is a huge pain, but you gotta do it. There is no simpler way to monitor what you are eating than by writing it all done. I’m talking every morsel, write it all down! You can monitor your nutrition with the SuperTracker and see what you need to eat more and less of.
  • Take care of pain! A little pain never hurt anyone, but if your body is telling you somethings wrong there probably is! I had serious knee probeactive-braceblems and the doctor recommended that I get a brace for running. Now I use the BeActive Brace and enjoy pain-free runs.
  • Eat more fruits & veggies! We love having a juice a day to get in all the fruits and vegetables that I don’t enjoy eating on a daily basis. It’s a really health way to kickstart your metabolism and give you some much needed energy for the day. There are tons of recipes online too!
  • Hit the Sand! Walking on sand has many great benefits. You get a better workout in the sand because it gives you added resistance. It’s also better on the knees so head to the beach for a nice morning walk or evening run.
  • Book Hotels with Gyms! Don’t go on vacation and ruin your diet. There are many great ways to still eat healthy and workout on vacation. Take advantage of swimming and all of the delicious tropical fruits that islands have to offer!
